BEIJING’S new missile is so precise, none of its launches have ended in failure. And this weapon is more than capable of hitting the United States.

China’s People Daily newspaper revealed the DF-41 could enter service as early as the first half of next year.

Japan drops ‘no-war’ pledge

JAPAN- A longtime no-war pledge has disappeared from Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party’s annual working policy revealed on Sunday, while the ruling party vowed to continue visits to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine and push ahead constitutional revision, in another move leading the country in a far-right direction, observers said.

At its 81st LDP annual convention in Tokyo, the party removed the pledge that Japan would “never wage a war”, China Central Television reported on Sunday.

The changes show that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is also the party chief, will intensify efforts step by step to push Japan further into animosity with neighbouring countries, analysts said.
