China’s Dong Feng-41 (DF-41) intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) could enter service as early as the first half of 2018, the state-owned Global Times newspaper reported on 19 November following media reports stating that the ICBM possibly underwent another test a few weeks ago.

In case you needed further proof that North Korea is a Chinese proxy against the west, mainly America, look no further. They’ll let North Korea do whatever it pleases in order to extract concessions out of the United States, so long as it doesn’t go overboard and force China to support it should it be the one starting a physical war. China needs to be able to save face and having North Korea provoke a war and then claim to be the victim is key.
BEIJING (Reuters) – If North Korea launches an attack that threatens the United States then China should stay neutral, but if the United States attacks first and tries to overthrow North Korea’s government China will stop them, a Chinese state-run newspaper said on Friday.
President Donald Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric toward North Korea and its leader on Thursday, warning Pyongyang against attacking Guam or U.S. allies after it disclosed plans to fire missiles over Japan to land near the U.S. Pacific territory. Continue reading
While the world’s eyes are focused on Syria, Russia, Ukraine, and North Korea; there is another – much more tense – fight between two nuclear powers that is getting far too little attention. The world’s two most populous nations, China and India, have been engaged in a border dispute for decades but in recent months it has flared once again with a Chinese Ministry of Defense official now warning explicitly that Indian troops must leave the contested Doklam area if they do not want war.
The latest standoff started more than a month ago after Chinese troops started building a road on a remote plateau, which is disputed by China and Bhutan. Indian troops countered by moving to the flashpoint zone to halt the work, with China accusing them of violating its territorial sovereignty and calling for their immediate withdrawal.

The ruling Communist Party of China has issued a stern warning to neighboring India, with which it is engaged in a bitter border dispute that has recently seen Chinese live-fire drills and media speculation of extensive Indian military casualties denied by both sides.
After accusing Indian troops of crossing over the disputed Sikkim border last month, Chinese Communist Party outlet Global Times published a commentary Tuesday urging restraint by both belligerents, but warning that China was prepared to engage India in a battle for the contested land. The piece chalked up the conflict to a greater competition for economic and political dominance between the two leading Asian powers and said that Beijing would amass troops and armaments at the border in anticipation for what could turn into an all-out war.

In an unexpectedly brazen rattling of sabers, just days after China deployed troops to its first foreign base in Djibouti, a move which the Global Times clarified is “about protecting its own security, not about seeking to control the world, Beijing made a less than subtle reversal, when it told Japan on Friday to “get used to it” after it flew six warplanes over the Miyako Strait between two southern Japanese islands in a military exercise.
It all started late on Thursday night, when Japan’s defense ministry issued a token statement describing the flyover by the formation of Xian H-6 bombers, also known as China’s B-52, earlier that day as “unusual”, while noting that there had been no violation of Japanese airspace. Continue reading
China’s Global Times, published by the official People’s Daily, said in an editorial in its Chinese and English-language editions that, if reports of China “systematically dismantling CIA spying operations, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources” are true, it was a victory for China.
As we previously detailed, an influential state-run newspaper applauded China’s anti-espionage efforts on Monday after the New York Times said China had killed or imprisoned up to 20 CIA sources, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach. Continue reading
China recently tested a new, advanced type of guided missile in the sea near the Korean peninsula, the Chinese defense ministry said Tuesday cited by the Times of India, just as South Korea concluded its presidential elections amid rising regional tensions. The test in the Bohai Sea was conducted to “raise the operational capability of the armed forces and effectively respond to threats to national security,” the ministry said in a brief statement. The statement did not say when the launch took place, only that it happened “recently”, nor did it give any details about the missile nor the type of platform from which it was launched.

China says North Korea will cross the “point of no return” and face destruction by the U.S. if they carry out a sixth nuclear test
(WASHINGTON, DC) On Tuesday the Global Times published an Op-Ed with these ominous words noting that Pyongyang will incur the wrath of the United States if it ignores this warning.
“The game of chicken between Washington and Pyongyang has come to a breaking point,” the Global Times, a nationalist Chinese newspaper managed by the state-run People’s Daily, writes. “If North Korea carries out a sixth nuclear test as expected, it is more likely than ever that the situation will cross the point of no return.”
“All stakeholders will bear the consequences, with Pyongyang sure to suffer the greatest losses,” the outlet warns. Continue reading

China may be planning to build around 10 new bases for its future aircraft carriers, the state-owned Global Times newspaper reported on 20 April, amid speculation that the Asian country will operate at least six carriers in the coming years. Continue reading
Has President Trump stuck a deal with China to dethrone Kim Jung-Un through a joint military invasion?
(VERO BEACH, FLA) On Wednesday TRUNEWS host Rick Wiles addressed the growing escalation on the Korean Peninsula as talk of ‘denuclearizing’ North Korea expanded into open discussions of potential Chinese intervention in topping dictator Kim Jung-Un.
Below is Rick Wiles’ commentary from the April 12th edition of TRUNEWS:
Foreign news reporters visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a big and important event on Thursday. Approximately 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang to cover North Korea’s 105th birthday of Kim Il Sung – the founder of the communist regime.
Although the North Korean officials gave no indication of what will even happen tomorrow, there are also reports appearing in South Korean newspapers that Kim Jung Un ordered the immediate evacuation of 600,000 people from Pyongyang. According to news reports, Pyongyang residents are quickly departing the city to take up residence in farm areas and forests. Continue reading
As we had learned from previous posts, the PLAN can expand its navy during war, weaponize and mobilize over 172,000 sea vessels.
You can read more about this in the following previous posts:
A lot of naysayers would immediately dismiss the threat, however, 172,000 vessels loaded with anti-ship missiles, cruise missiles, ICBMs, or God forbid a nuclear weapon, would be a problem for the U.S. Navy. Shipping containers can easily disguise mobile nukes loaded on freighters. Even half or a quarter of the amount of ships loaded with weapons would keep anyone out that doesn’t want to lose an entire fleet… or more.
HUNDREDS of warships, including aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and a destroyer force, could soon be patrolling the Asia–Pacific as tensions between Beijing and Washington reach boiling point.
China is refusing to back down over President Donald Trump’s apparent interest in interfering with the ongoing turf war in the South China Sea.
With Xi Jinping’s nation being economically strong, it has the money and capability to massively expand its armed forces. Continue reading
China’s state media has not obsessed about President Barack Obama’s “legacy” to the degree America’s 44th president has.
It has not however missed the opportunity to celebrate the “failure” of his celebrated “Asia Pivot” strategy while finding other positive things to say about the exiting leader. Continue reading
Beijing: China will “take off the gloves” and take strong action if US President-elect Donald Trump continues to provoke Beijing over Taiwan once he assumes office, two leading state-run newspapers said on Monday.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Friday, Trump said the “One China” policy was up for negotiation. China’s foreign ministry, in response, said “One China” was the foundation of China-US ties and was non-negotiable.
Trump broke with decades of precedent last month by taking a congratulatory telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, angering Beijing, which sees Taiwan as part of China.
“If Trump is determined to use this gambit in taking office, a period of fierce, damaging interactions will be unavoidable, as Beijing will have no choice but to take off the gloves,” the English-language China Daily said. Continue reading
Remember a few things about China and what it has previously said:
- In Febuary of 2010, China warned there will be hand-to-hand combat with the United States within 10 years.
- It doesn’t care about Taiwan. Preparations for war with Taiwan are actually preparations for war with America:
- “The central committee believes, as long as we resolve the United States problem at one blow, our domestic problems will all be readily solved. Therefore, our military battle preparation appears to aim at Taiwan, but in fact is aimed at the United States, and the preparation is far beyond the scope of attacking aircraft carriers or satellites.” – Chi Haotian, Minster of Defense and vice-chairman of China’s Central Military Commission
- China’s main goal: The extermination of America.
The CCP has mastered the art of provocation while creating the perception it’s the victim.
Follows Rex Tillerson’s South China Sea comments during confirmation hearing
The US should “prepare for a military clash”, a state run Chinese tabloid newspaper has warned.
Less than 24 hours after US Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson appeared to call for a blockade of South China Sea islands, a strongly-worded English editorial in the Global Times accused the former Exxon Mobil chief executive of “rabble-rousing”.
He “had better bone up on nuclear power strategies if he wants to force a big nuclear power to withdraw from its own territories”, the paper, which is known for writing hawkish editorials, said. However, despite being state run, it does not necessarily reflect government policy. Continue reading
