There are observers who argue that the media and internet often portray an illusion of an overwhelmingly superior China in terms of new sophisticated weapons of war only to justify an arms build up in the US. This article is written even with that premise, with the possibility in mind that they are true or even half true, or false. The readers can make their own conclusions.
This is actually an old story way back in 2007. US naval officials were awestruck when a tiny 160-foot Song class Chinese submarine surfaced close to the 1,000-foot super-carrier USS Kitty Hawk. At that range, it could have easily launched torpedoes or missiles at the carrier. The carrier was surrounded by at least a dozen escort warships and at least two US submarines, all of which apparently were unable to detect it. The Song class submarine runs on very quiet electric motors during stealth operations, and uses diesel as fuel. A NATO source said American and NATO naval officials were re-thinking their naval strategies because of the incident.
When American diplomats asked why the Chinese were shadowing the US fleet, Beijing feigned ignorance and dismissed the affair as coincidence. The incident happened between southern Japan and Taiwan, during US naval exercises. Was China sending a subtle signal to the Americans to stay away from their backyard?
_____________________________________China’s Missile Guidance System is American
Missile guidance technology was acquired by China from the LORAL Corporation with the apparent blessings of the Clinton Administration. For what reason, nobody knows.
A retired missile expert from the US Navy who claims he has handled Harpoon, Tomahawk, and ASROC missile systems, was shocked when he saw a video of missile fired 30 miles off the coast of California, a foreign type of ‘large cruise or ICBM missile’ launched from an underwater platform.
He said, “First I know it is a large missile because it did not exhibit the typical ‘corkscrewing’ trajectory … (which) tells me it is a Big Boy with a complete guidance system installed”, a ‘fire and forget’ missile where an internal guidance system takes over, not needing external guidance. Second, he was confident it was not ‘one of ours’, as the vapor trail was ‘dirty’, being brownish. US missiles clean fuel emitting a whitish-blue trail.
He wrote, “I bet the brass in Washington is freaked out big time, because, of what I know of our “defenses”, they should really have had a pretty good idea this thing was sitting there, and they should have been watching it, not only at that moment it broke the surface of the water and ignited our early warning dopplar should have picked it up, and relayed the info to NORAD, and the CAP units flying patrol over the country…”
He added that it was impossible to be an accidental launch because the protocol for launch are so complex, there is no ‘one red button’ to do it, requiring at least 5 people to do it.
The above Internet article, which is not sourced, was written by someone with a pen name of FC2-ANDREW/RET. It could be a hype from military personnel wanting to get public approval for more funds for more arns. On the other hand, it could be true.
The Chinese have come up with a super-missile with the staggering speed of Mach-10 and with a range of 3,000 miles. At this speed, it will be too late for radar screens of super-carriers and its escort of warships to detect and respond to the incoming missile.
The Chinese anti-carrier Dong Feng missile system DF-21D. There are no known US defense systems for missiles with this speed, as of this writing.
_______________ Chinese Star Wars
In January this year, China successfully conducted a missile test shooting down a satellite in orbit for the first time. In a controntation, such a destruction of key US satellites used for warfare can paralyze drones, missile systems, and communications networks in general.
______________________________________ China’s Nuke-proof Underground Fortresses
China today has deep underground fortresses where they keep about 1,500 warplanes safe from nuclear attack.
___________________________________________________ US Provocation triggered China’s Massive Defense Program
During the US-China confrontation over Taiwan in the 80s, the Americans resorted to a show of force by sending seven aircraft carriers near the shores of China’s mainland. They wanted to prove that Taiwan is the Cuba of the east, a bastion of American interest near the heart of the Dragon. The Chinese panicked. It was a blessing in disguise. They suddenly realized their military weaknesses right at their very shores. So they started doing their homework quietly. They quietly began a massive defense program unequalled in its entire history, focusing in neutralizing super-carriers and stealth submarines, and building nuke-proof fortresses
________________________________________________________ A German Clairvoyant Predicted a ‘Yellow Dragon’ in World War III
A German clairvoyant, Alois Irlmaier, who predicted in the 1950s a ‘Third World War’, said it will start in the Middle East, with big naval forces having a confrontation in the Mediterranean. But the actual fire will spark in the Balkans. Because of the killing of two men, “revenge comes from across the large water. The yellow dragon invades Alaska and Canada. And then it rains a yellow dust in a line.”
Given all these trends and developments, are we witnessing a new superpower rising and an old one falling?
