With the ability to launch eight warheads simultaneously, China’s DF-5B intercontinental ballistic missile will be extremely difficult for the United States and its allies to intercept, reports Hong Kong’s Ta Kung Pao. Continue reading
Military analyst Leung Kwok-leung told CNA that the People’s Liberation Army has replaced its DF-5 missiles with the DF-5A series since the former’s public appearance in a military parade in 1984. Leung said he personally believes that DF-5B, which has never been shown to the public before, is the same model as one reported earlier as the DF-51 missile. Continue reading
Latest DF-41 flight test indicates deployment near
China conducted a flight test this month of its newest long-range missile that U.S. intelligence agencies say lofted two independently-targeted simulated nuclear warheads, according to defense officials.
The launch of the DF-41 road-mobile missile Aug. 6 was the fourth time the new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) has been test-fired in three years, and indicates that the weapon capable of hitting U.S. cities with nuclear warheads is nearing deployment. Continue reading
The Russian military was pressing ahead with the design and manufacture of new nuclear-capable heavy intercontinental ballistic missiles that were expected to be ready for testing in 18-24 months, the Russian government-backed news agency Tass reported. The Kremlin has prioritized the modernization and strategic location of its ICBM missile fleet during the last year because of renewed hostility between Moscow and NATO over the annexation of Crimea and the Kremlin’s continued involvement in the Eastern Ukraine war.

The United States Pacific Command has stationed more than 1,200 special forces troops in the Asia-Pacific along with the latest advancements in weapons technology to contain China’s rising presence in the region, reports the Beijing-based Sina Military Network.
America’s most recent national military strategy issued in February made it clear that the US is, has been and always will be a Pacific nation, adding that Washington has maintained diverse relations with various Asian countries while also strengthening its military presence in the Asia Pacific for the sake of ensuring regional security. Indeed, the US has been active in building stronger ties with Japan, South Korea, Australia and the Philippines, and has also been exploring partnerships with Southeast Asian nations such as Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Iran intends to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) with enough range to hit US soil as part of Tehran’s nuclear weapons program, former US Defense Intelligence Agency Director Michael Flynn said in congressional testimony on Wednesday.
“Iran has every intention to build an ICBM and nuclear weapons program,” Flynn told the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs. “Iran’s next generation of missiles will include ICBM’s capable of attacking the American homeland.” Continue reading
Russia conducted a flight test of a new intercontinental ballistic missile earlier this month that some U.S. officials and security analysts say is a new violation of Moscow’s arms control treaty commitments.
The March 18 flight test of a new RS-26 missile is part of a large-scale nuclear arms buildup by Russia and is raising concerns about treaty compliance, said U.S. officials familiar with details of the missile test. Continue reading
An intercontinental ballistic missile was fired early Monday from a facility in California, the US Air Force announced, saying the tests were a message to the world about Washington’s nuclear capabilities. Continue reading
Russia’s nuclear missile force staged large-scale exercises across the vast country Thursday consisting of drills to combat sabotage and chemical weapons attacks. More than 30 regiments of the Strategic Missile Forces were involved in 12 regions, according to Itar-Tass, a Russian news agency close to the government.
The first two deployment sites for Russia’s Sarmat heavy liquid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) programme will be in Orenburg oblast (presumably to re-equip 13th Missile Division headquartered at Dombarovskiy) and in Krasnoyarsk kray (presumably to re-equip the 62nd Missile Division headquartered at Uzhur), according to Strategic Rocket Forces (SRF) Commander in Chief Colonel General Sergey Karakayev.

This article couldn’t be more spot on when it comes to pointing the origin of today’s Chinese technology. This article just isn’t your run-of-the-mill political jab, but actually fact.

If people thought the ‘barbarians’ were at the gate just during Obama or Bush’s tenure, they couldn’t be more dead wrong and haven’t payed attention one bit. They also weren’t at the gate, but within. Thanks to the Clinton administration, the Chinese military is now on par with America’s and within the next ten years will be superior, also thanks in part to the decimation of the U.S. Military from within via purging of senior officers and budget cuts that are happening now.
Although it’s another story, the Clintons are also largely responsible for the financial crisis of 2008 due to repealing the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999.
What the Clintons did years ago is now coming to fruition. Still, there will always be the oblivious bunch who never saw it coming and couldn’t imagine how it all happened.
America is in both free fall and grave danger.
Clinton-era tech transfer aided multi-warhead program
China carried out a long-range missile flight test on Saturday using multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, according to U.S. defense officials.
The flight test Saturday of a new DF-41 missile, China’s longest-range intercontinental ballistic missile, marks the first test of multiple warhead capabilities for China, officials told the Washington Free Beacon.
China has been known to be developing multiple-warhead technology, which it obtained from the United States illegally in the 1990s.
However, the Dec. 13 DF-41 flight test, using an unknown number of inert maneuvering warheads, is being viewed by U.S. intelligence agencies as a significant advance for China’s strategic nuclear forces and part of a build-up that is likely to affect the strategic balance of forces.

The last Soviet leader still considers nuclear arsenals as a crucial factor of international security. Such destructive weapons must be prevented from falling into the hands of extremists at all costs, he stresses.
MOSCOW, December 17 (Sputnik) — The last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has disagreed with allegations that nuclear deterrence is no longer relevant in international affairs, in an interview with RT TV channel.
“I do not agree with those who claim that nuclear threat is not a deterrent anymore. We are now far more aware of what nuclear weapons and nuclear power are [capable of],” Gorbachev said. Continue reading
