In a recent report, the Pentagon has warned that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) now has the world’s largest navy and largest standing ground force globally. It is most likely to double its nuclear warheads over the next decade, including those designed for ballistic missiles that will have the capacity to reach the United States, says the Pentagon.
The number of warheads on the CCP’s land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of threatening the United States is expected to grow to roughly 200 in the next five years. However, the number is small compared to around 3,800 warheads ready for action in the United States.
The CCP has refused any suggestions from the Trump administration to join the United States and Russia in a nuclear arms treaty, to limit nuclear arms expansion between the three nations, as reported by Fox News.
China analyst Gordon Chang spoke with Bill Hemmer from “Bill Hemmer Reports” on Monday, Sept. 7, and warned, “China is configuring its military to kill Americans.”
Chang continued, “We shouldn’t be enriching a hostile regime with our trade and with our investment. I believe that decoupling is what we absolutely have to do, especially this year.”
“[President] Xi Jinping has been talking increasingly about this notion that China has a mandate of heaven to rule the world,” Chang explained. “They [believe that they] not only have the right to do it, they have the obligation to do it,” reported Fox News.
Chang said the CCP is disrupting peace and stability with its neighbors India and Japan, trying to overthrow the current international system, whereas the United States is trying to defend it.
“He’s [Xi] become very specific about this in public and so have his officials, which means that they are trying to change the international system, not to compete within it,” Chang said.
Chang, the author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” said, “I think China believes it needs to move fast and that means we’re going to see problems, not in the 2030s, we’re going to see problems now.”
Last month, President Trump brought up the issue of cutting ties entirely with China during an exclusive interview with Fox News’s Steve Hilton.
The landmark deal the United States signed with the CCP in January could end up shredded, after the deceitful way it handled the CCP Virus, “If they don’t treat us right,” the president said he would “certainly” part ways with Beijing.
