While the Pentagon concerns itself with virtue signaling, Beijing readies itself for nuclear war with America

And according to The Epoch Times, the Chi-coms could possibly use their increasing nuclear capabilities to coerce the United States within a few short years, experts say, after recent reports showing their efforts to expand their nuke arsenal.
According to a report released last week by the Federation of American Scientists, China will have some 250 new silos in place once those facilities are done being built. The silos, underground facilities for housing and launching intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) equals more than all of the number of silo-based Russian ICBMs and about half of America’s deployment of such missiles.
“The Chinese missile silo program constitutes the most extensive silo construction since the US and Soviet silo missile construction during the Cold War,” the report stated.
The report notes that about 110 of the new silos are located at a field near the city of Hami, located in the eastern parts of China’s far-western Xinjiang region, according to satellite photos.
In June, the California-based James Martin Center uncovered another site, an unfinished field with about 120 silos located in Yumen, a city in Xinjiang’s neighboring Gansu Province.
“The silo construction at Yumen and Hami constitutes the most significant expansion of the Chinese nuclear arsenal ever,” the FAS report stated.
Rick Fisher, senior fellow at Virginia-based think tank International Assessment and Strategy Center told The Epoch Times that the latest discovery seems to indicate that Beijing “may be on its way to an initial warhead inventory over 3,000.
All of this saber rattling seems to have ramped up since Biden was elected last November, with the Chi-coms detecting a weak, compromised president.
Some believe the discovery of China’s once-secret activities leads to the belief what else may be in progress that the international community is not yet aware of, according to Patty-Jane Geller, a policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation.
Geller is a policy analyst for nuclear deterrence and missile defense at the Washington, D.C.-based think tank.
Geller noted that some have ignored the threat posed by China, believing the public estimates of its nuclear stockpile with has been estimated at 350 warheads, which puts it far short of the inventory held by the US and Russia. However the recent findings indicate that “we shouldn’t just be playing this numbers game,” she said.
“We cannot just be considering them as a country with just a few nuclear weapons anymore. We have to take them more seriously,” Geller told The Epoch Times.
“I don’t think most Americans would be okay with living with a China who can coerce the United States with a strong military capability,” she said.
Meanwhile Fisher believes the United States may begin seeing “nuclear coercion” by Beijing “as early as mid-decade unless the U.S. takes counter actions now.”
Moreover, that threat is increased significantly if the Chinese regime teams up with Putin’s Russia to strong-arm the United States. He said it could prevent a “future weak American president from coming to the defense of Taiwan.” Well, we’ve got a very weak American president right now, and the vice president isn’t an improvement.
“Unless America responds quickly, we will be facing an era of strategic inferiority, constant bullying, and even nuclear attack by China and Russia,” Fisher said. VISIT LAWENFORCEMENT TODAY
