Chinese state media show plans for nuke strikes on US cities

Chinese navy nuclear submarineChinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific.

On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the “awesomeness” of the People’s Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force.

“This is the first time in 42 years since the establishment of our navy’s strategic submarine force that we reveal on such a large scale the secrets of our first-generation underwater nuclear force,” the Global Times said in a lengthy article titled “China for the First Time Possesses Effective Underwater Nuclear Deterrence against the United States.”

The article features 30 photos and graphics detailing, among other things, damage projections for Seattle and Los Angeles after being hit by Chinese nuclear warheads and the deadly radiation that would spread all the way to Chicago.

China’s sub fleet is reportedly the world’s second-largest, with about 70 vessels. About 10 are nuclear-powered, and four or more of those are nuclear ballistic submarines capable of launching missiles.

Heavily influenced by Soviet naval models that stressed underwater forces, China’s nuclear submarine development began with the reverse-engineering of a Soviet Golf-class conventional-powered sub in the 1950s.

In the 1980s, China developed its first ballistic missile sub, the Type 092 Xia-class, which has 12 launch tubes for the Julang (Giant Wave)-1 missiles. The JL-1 had a limited range and failed multiple test launches.

In 2010, a new class of missile sub, the Type 094 Jin class, entered the service. It is capable of launching 12 to 16 JL-2 missiles with a range of about 8,700 miles, covering much of the continental U.S. with single or multiple, independently targetable re-entry vehicle warheads.

china nuke strikeChinese calculations for nuclear attacks on the U.S. are chillingly macabre.

“Because the Midwest states of the U.S. are sparsely populated, in order to increase the lethality, [our] nuclear attacks should mainly target the key cities on the West Coast of the United States, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego,” the Global Times said.

“The 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads carried by one single Type 094 SSBN can kill and wound 5 million to 12 million Americans,” the Global Times reported.

China also has developed land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles — notably the DF-31A, which has a range of 7,000 to 7,500 miles.

“If we launch our DF 31A ICBMs over the North Pole, we can easily destroy a whole list of metropolises on the East Coast and the New England region of the U.S., including Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Portland, Baltimore and Norfolk, whose population accounts for about one-eighth of America’s total residents,” the Global Times said.

All the state-run press reports stressed the point that the PLA’s missile submarines are now on routine strategic patrol, “which means that China for the first time has acquired the strategic deterrence and second strike capability against the United States.”

“Our JL-2 SLBMs have become the fourth type of Chinese nuclear missiles that threaten the continental United States, after our DF-31A, DF-5A and DF-5B ICBMs,” said the Global Times.

In a sign of growing confidence, China’s navy gave Chinese media on Sunday unprecedented publicity on its first nuclear submarine fleet, one of its most secretive military programs.

    Is the USA now going to show theirs? Might be what China is fishing for. Or was that up to Wikileakers?
    One thing we can agree on … there’s still enough floating around ‘out there’ to finish all life on earth – except for a few bugs … although Zabada thinks the bugs won’t make the end of the universe anyway.
    Strange they don’t mention how many Billion Chinese a few warheads could kill and maim, in this ‘body-count’ fear-game. Although they did note there’s fewer people per square foot on the USA’s turf.
    Trying to get coverage even in the fear-game is such a bitch, isn’t it?
    Always love how the maps exclude Canada and Mexico.
    Must be a USA weather map.
    But since the Chinese are buying up Alberta’s oil fields, they might want to re-consider some things ….

      It’s just internal propaganda. If they have any brain (and I think they do), the Chinese military knows very well that the 5-6 submarines that can deliver nuclear missiles are easy targets that can be taken out instantly in the first hours of a conflict. Their intercontinental missiles, if allowed to be launched might reach the pacific at the very best if they’re not blown over China by the US ballistic shield which they completely omitted in their “article”. They also forgot to mention any counter strike as you pointed so well. if one of their nuclear missile reaches a big city and kills 5 to 12 million people, US missiles will rain on Chinese cities, each taking 15 to 30 millions lives and they have 0 defenses against such a storm.
      The article is meant to impress the poor farmer earning 75c a day, I don’t think it will scare a hobo in the US.

      • 5thDrawer

        Yah Mekenseh. It’s like the one rocket the North Koreans run back and forth across the country to set up on a beach … depending on whether they are threatening the East or the West on any given day. 😉

        • master09

          Lets not forget the laser show the US have. All talk and as little chance of an attack as me going back to my sweet teen years, the glory days. Lol The US are so close to China they can pick thier nose and China has no clue. A couple other nations on China door step that would not mind taking out a couple cities as well. For China it’s a no win talk bullshit. The facts I think is China just relize the population is out of control and maybe an attack mite wipe out couple hundred million.

          • 5thDrawer

            Right master09 … They didn’t call it the ‘Yellow River’ for nothing … although when 10,000 pigs floated down it from somewhere, the colour changed a little. ;-))
            (yah,yah … nasty racist joke … so what … a lot of female babies beat the pigs)
            That people were trying to scoop them out for restaurants before the army did could be an indicator … there are not enough dogs any more.

            And then the Pigs went into Lap Cheong which was then exported to the USA, and then purchased by people including myself. Tasty.

            Your thoughts, but facts don’t make you anything. Just stating reality buddy. Both sides talk a lot of shiiiit but the facts is we know no one will fire nothing.

        • MekensehParty

          It was a joke! Back in the 50s-60s when a country threatened to launch a nuclear attack against the US people were really scared. When NK threatened this year maybe 5% of the population read about it, laughed and went to work as usual.

      Do you actually think that the ‘Chinese Bosses’ actually care how many ‘…Billion Chinese a few warheads could kill and maim’ as long as after all other life on this planet is killed off there is at least one pair of Chinese (Han, preferably) left to re-populate?

    If they do the above, they must be ready to face retaliation from Mexico!!

      hehehehe … if it doesn’t break the whole west coast off the continent and not just California. 🙂

    I wonder why Canada was left out of the equation. If China hit Seattle, wouldn’t the radiation flow into Southwestern Canada as well?

      Ahh yes, Patricia … but as you can see, it’s not on the map. So it’s ok. 😉

    I see the map and I see the targeted cities and the innocent lives that would be lost. But lets say you take out the west cost, then you turn around and take out the east coast. That means you have taken out the entire liberal propaganda machine in the United States. Within a matter of months the United States would throw off its current currency leaving china with worthless paper in it banks, and revert back to a people’s owned currency. American Resources would cease to be out sourced. All military assets would be recalled and surround the United States, a Right Wing power house of industrial might would engulf the South lead by Texas and in the end There would not be a city left standing in China.

      Hey. I live in the Rain Tax State as I now call Maryland; there are a LOT of patriotic gun toting Constitution believers here. We are just victims of voter fraud with our leaders.

    The problem is this will happen, China hates America including Canada they don’t care who they kill, but they will be surprised on who will destroy them for the murder of so many innocents, because not all Americans are Bad, we really have no control over what our leaders do, they do what they want, and we do not live in a democracy, and haunt since the 1990s.

      Is that for Sept 2013… or the one coming?
      If they bomb us now, they will lose the Tar-Sands they bought and want a pipeline to the coast for,

      September and October please son Goda tell me so I can pack my bag and move to the mountains and take my materialistic life with me. Suckers I will be the king.
