    Pentagon aired fresh concerns about China’s build-up of its nuclear forces after a new report saying Beijing was building 110 more missile silos.

    An American Federation of Scientists (AFS) report on Monday said satellite images showed China was building a new field of silos near Hami in the eastern part of its Xinjiang region. The report came weeks after another on the construction of about 120 missile silos in Yumen, a desert area about 380km to the southeast.

    Its arsenal is dwarfed by those of the United States

    A 2020 Pentagon report estimated China’s nuclear warhead stockpile in “the low 200s” and said it was projected to at least double in size. The United States has around 3,800 warheads, and according to a State Department factsheet, 1,357 of those were deployed

    The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Zhao Lijian, accused the U.S. of misrepresenting China.

    “First, the U.S. must not challenge, discredit or even try to subvert the socialist path and system with Chinese characteristics,” stated the Chinese spokesperson. “Second, it must not try to obstruct or even interrupt China’s development process. And third, it must not infringe on China’s national sovereignty, let alone undermining China’s territorial integrity.”

    Now Germany is part of the coalition that destroyed Germany and killed thousands of Germans during WW2, and they are using the same pretext that their old enemies used to attack them. The new threat is not nazism, now it is the so called Chinese communism

    And they opposed the new green deal, and they continue oil drilling. They do not remember when many USA corporations were making huge profits in China and they did not care if the factories were powered with coals

    A clear indication that identity politics is not the solution to capitalist problems. All, despite ‘races” color of their skin, sex, and, social origin, the ethnic origin will serve and defend the same capitalist interests. It looks that she might be the next one holding the driving wheels of the US capitalist state

    China, which claims historical rights over most of the areas in the South China Sea, amended its Maritime Traffic Safety Law in recent months. It took effect on September 1. It covers five types of vessels including submersibles, nuclear vessels, ships carrying radioactive materials, ships carrying bulk oil, chemicals, liquefied gas and other toxic and harmful substances, and other vessels “that might endanger China’s maritime traffic safety”,

    Philippine Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has promised that it will ignore China’s amended maritime law, which now requires foreign vessels sailing in the South China Sea to report their information to Chinese authorities.

    Lorenzana said it is time for a comprehensive review of Manila’s alliance with the US and there is a need to “upgrade” and “update” the alliance .
