Bad news for the US: China’s Military Is Getting Stronger Every Day

Posted on November 10, 2014


Two new articles recently cross-posted by the MissileThreat website further document China’s rapid military buildup and ascent to military parity with – on track to become military superiority over – the US. These articles are available here and here. The first article briefly narrates China’s recent development and (in most cases) introduction of many high-quality […]

How many nuclear weapons does China have? I’m quoted in Proceedings

Posted on September 30, 2014


How many nuclear weapons does China have? This is currently a subject of dispute between those who attempt to assess the Chinese arsenal’s size soberly and objectively, and those who wish to downplay and deny the Chinese military threat. Captain David A. Adams, USN, Director of Initiatives at the US Seventh Fleet command, falls into the […]

Denying the China threat is becoming more and more difficult

Posted on July 3, 2014


As the Chinese military threat grows, it is becoming more and more difficult for the enemies of a strong American defense to deny that threat – not that they’ll stop trying. But now the evidence of the gravity of the Chinese military threat is so overwhelming that it’s impossible to deny that threat and retain […]

Danish pacifist Hans Kristensen lies about China’s submarines again

Posted on April 27, 2014


Hans M. Kristensen, a lifelong Danish pacifist and advocate of the West’s unilateral disarmament since his earliest youth days, now an anti-nuclear hack at the FAS, seems to be bored these days. He has just penned another blogpost where he stubbornly denies and understates the Chinese nuclear threat, despite all the evidence that the threat […]

Rebuttal of Stratfor’s false claims on China’s nukes

Posted on November 22, 2013


The open-sources-based Stratfor think-tank has recently published an article on China’s ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) that downplays the threat these submarines, and China in general, pose to the US. Because of this, and because it contains numerous factual errors, I’ve decided to pen this rebuttal. The article begins by repeating the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission’s […]

China acquires the Tu-22M production line; intends to build 36 bombers

Posted on January 2, 2013


Well, lookie here. China Times reports that the PRC has bought the Tu-22M production line from Russia and intends to build at least 36 Tu-22MB bombers domestically. Because China lacks some of the components for these aircraft, it will import them from Russia, a willing seller. Thus, China will, by the end of this decade, have […]

Liberal advocates of Western disarmament, such as Daryl Kimball, Tom Collina, Jeffrey Lewis and Hans Kristensen (a lifelong Danish pacifist who now lives in the US) and their organizations claim (without any evidence or any […]

How big is China’s nuclear arsenal?

Posted on November 5, 2012


How big is China’s nuclear arsenal? Arms control advocates such as Jeffrey Lewis of the “Center for Nonproliferation Studies” (he was previously with the Soros-funded New America Foundation) believe that it consists of only a few hundred (240-400) warheads. In fact, this has become an article of religious faith for arms control advocates. US intelligence agencies […]

How many submarines do China and Russia have?

Posted on November 4, 2012


One of the ways in which China is growing its military muscle – which has already matched America’s in most respects – is the buildup of its submarine fleet. It is also one of China’s assymetric ways of becoming a military match, and a future superior, for the US, and of defeating the US in […]
