Posted on 11/01/2013 4:47:24 AM PDT by FreeAtlanta
Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijings nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific.
On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the Peoples Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the awesomeness of the People's Liberation Army navys strategic submarine force.
This is the first time in 42 years since the establishment of our navys strategic submarine force that we reveal on such a large scale the secrets of our first-generation underwater nuclear force, the Global Times said in a lengthy article titled China for the First Time Possesses Effective Underwater Nuclear Deterrence against the United States.

not that this is really news to any of us, but how many lefties believe that we have a fully operational missile shield? one of my sisters does. She is ignorantly in lefty bliss.
Interesting, no Washington DC.
“but how many lefties believe that we have a fully operational missile shield? one of my sisters does. She is ignorantly in lefty bliss. “
Rather ironic isn’t it? The left was all lathered up during Ronnie Raygun’s launching a workable missile shield.
WE HAVE BILL CLINTON TO THANK FO THIS:
From Discover the Networks—(GREAT SITE BY THE WAY)
Chinagate and the Compromising of U.S. Intelligence:
When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, Chinese missiles were greatly limited in terms of their range and accuracy. But as journalist Richard Poe noted in 2003, Thanks to Bill Clinton, China can now hit any city in the USA, using state-of-the-art, solid-fueled missiles with dead-accurate, computerized guidance systems and multiple warheads.
Poe explains that the Clinton administration willingly permitted China to obtain the technology necessary for this giant leap forward. In part this was due to Clintons globalist view of international relations, where “multipolarity” — the notion that a balance of power among nations is preferable to the existence of a single superpower — is the ideal. Acting out of that mindset, Clinton appointed the anti-nuclear activist Hazel OLeary as his Energy Secretary. A self-identified advocate of “leveling the playing field” in terms of miltary capacity, OLeary declassified some 11 million pages of military data; she also loosened security procedures at U.S. weapons labs. According to Poe, Federal investigators later concluded that China made off with the ‘crown jewels’ of our nuclear weapons research under Clintons open-door policy — probably including design specifications for suitcase nukes.
But declassification was not the only means by which President Clinton transferred missile technology and nuclear secrets to the Chinese. He also permitted those secrets to be sold directly to Beijing. Poe elaborates:
“In his book The China Threat, Washington Times correspondent Bill Gertz describes how the system worked. Defense contractors eager to sell technology to China poured millions of dollars into Clintons campaign. In return, Clinton called off the dogs. Janet Reno and other counterintelligence officials stood down while Lockheed Martin, Hughes Electronics, Loral Space & Communications and other U.S. companies helped China modernize its nuclear strike force.
“’We like your president. We want to see him reelected,’ former Chinese intelligence chief General Ji Shengde told Chinagate bagman Johnny Chung.
“Indeed, Chinese intelligence organized a massive covert operation aimed at tilting the 1996 election Clintons way.
“Clintons top campaign contributors for 1992 were Chinese agents; his top donors in 1996 were U.S. defense contractors selling missile technology to China.
“Clinton recieved funding directly from known or suspected Chinese intelligence agents, among them James and Mochtar Riady who own the Indonesian Lippo Group; John Huang; Charlie Trie; Ted Sioeng; Maria Hsia; Wang Jun and others.”
In a related move, Clinton in 1997 awarded a 25- to 50-year contract to Hutchinson Whampoa Ltd., a Hong Kong-based shipping firm with ties to Communist China’s government and its People’s Liberation Army. The contract authorized Hutchinson to control the two major ports on the Panama Canal’s Atlantic and Pacific entrances. As Senator Trent Lott put it:
This administration is allowing a scenario to develop where U.S. national security interests could not be protected without confronting the Chinese communists in the Americas. U.S. naval ships will be at the mercy of Chinese-controlled pilots and could even be denied passage through the Panama Canal by Hutchinson, an arm of the People’s Liberation Army. In addition, the Chinese Communist Party will gain an intelligence information advantage by controlling this strategic chokepoint. It appears that we have given away the farm without a shot being fired.
Noting the ominous implications of this, Richard Poe observed: China can now strike U.S. targets easily from their bases in Panama, Vancouver and the Bahamas.
It wouldn't have happened, and wouldn't need to be documented again, if the GD MSM had done their jobs in the first place.
Don’t worry about the Chinese nuking the US. You don’t nuke your own property.
Scary huh, but they, like our military, have contingency plans on the books to use this kind of action, if needed, on any country in the world.
Im sure you would find Finland on that list.
China is playing the nuke America meme heavily this week. In Chinese media.
Why are we buying, our things from there?
Bring back American manufacturing.
Yes, the main stream media is NOTHING BUT A PROPAGANDA MACHINE: THE HOUSE ORGAN OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
I didn’t even mention the top secret silent propeller technology that the Chinese got from us that allows their subs to operate undetected by sonar. There was a time in our history, that such treachery would justifiably end with a FIRING SQUAD.
“...if the GD MSM had done their jobs in the first place. ...”
I’ll submit that they ARE “doing their jobs.”
Their job is - or has become - to shill, fawn over, and provide cover for ANY democrat/commie/socialist/progressive that gets into office, and denigrate, assail, and fabricate lies about any Republican that gets elected.
And they do it so well. Witness the way they drool over the current buffoon.
The primary targets for China’s SSBN fleet has always been the US West Coast. That means targets from Bellingham, WA to San Diego will be within reach of the Chinese submarines if they can make it out to the middle of the Pacific.
Odd. I figured they’d just foreclose rather than destroy the property they own.
That’s one of them.
Now line up enough to fill every Walmart and Kmart, and every other store in America.
In perpetuity. Of course, not employing Americans.
Then, China’s building up their real Navy too.
We are somewhat blind, to what is happening.
I’m assuming that “dot” on Maine should be further south.....the naval shipyard at Bath Iron Works?
Earlier this week the Russians had a large scale nuc exercise and now this.
What are Democrats doing? Defunding the military, firing generals and admirals. Right in our faces.
China has the neutron bomb, unlike us.
Is that the same missile shield they demonized as Star Wars?
Why would China want to destroy a large chunk of its own real estate holdings?
