China’s Newest Long-Range Heavy Bomber Should Unnerve US

And now it becomes even more clear why the CCP will continue its push to solidify the Asia-Pacific with artificial islands.

The ADIZ is the minimum requirement to be able to destroy strategic U.S. defenses on the periphery, enabling further airstrikes an exposed American mainland.

PLAN nuclear submarines will have already been on the American coastline hitting high priority targets (anti-aircraft defenses, nuclear deterrent, etc…) within minutes from California to Mississippi (or further), laying the groundwork for airstrikes on American soil.
