Biden Admin Alarmed Over China’s Growing Nuclear Arsenal 

Biden Admin Alarmed Over China’s Growing Nuclear Arsenal 

Chinese President Xi Jinping: Beijing’s enemies will “have their heads cracked and bleeding” in any future conflict.

President Joe Biden’s administration is worried about Communist China’s growing nuclear arsenal. The Biden White House is alarmed that Chinese nuclear arsenal appears to be growing “more quickly, and to a higher level than perhaps previously anticipated,” the State Department spokesman Ned Price on Thursday said.

The reaction from the Biden administration comes as satellite imagery earlier this week revealed a vast nuclear weapons complex in the desert of north central China.

Researchers from the California-based Middlebury Institute of International Studies uncovered 119 silos suspected of holding intercontinental ballistic missiles. “Spread across more than 700 sq miles, the site near Yumen includes the construction of underground bunkers, which may function as launch centres, cable trenches, roads and a small military base,” the researchers said.

In face of the growing Chinese nuclear threat, the Biden State Department urged Beijing to undertake “practical measures to reduce nuclear risks.”

The Reuters news agency reported the Biden administration’s response:

The United States said on Thursday China’s rapid build-up of its nuclear forces was concerning and called on Beijing to engage with it “on practical measures to reduce the risks of destabilizing arms races.”

The build up had become more difficult for China to hide and it appeared it was deviating from decades of nuclear strategy based around minimal deterrence, State Department spokesperson Ned Price told a regular news briefing.

Price was responding to a question about a report in the Washington Post that said China had begun constructing more than 100 new missile silos in a desert area in the western part of the country.

“These reports and other developments suggest that the PRC’s nuclear arsenal will grow more quickly, and to a higher level than perhaps previously anticipated,” Price said using the acronym for the People’s Republic of China.

“This buildup is concerning. It raises questions about the PRC’s intent. And for us, it reinforces the importance of pursuing practical measures to reduce nuclear risks,” he said.

“We encourage Beijing to engage with us on practical measures to reduce the risks of destabilizing arms races – potentially destabilizing tensions.”

There are no signs that China is in any mood to listen to the Biden administration’s pleas for moderation and de-escalation.  The Communist regime is doubling down on its belligerent rhetoric towards the United States and its allies.

Pointing likely towards the U.S. and the West, Chinese President Xi Jinping recently threatened that Beijing’s enemies will “have their heads cracked and bleeding” in any future conflict. They “will find themselves on a collision course with a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people,” Xi warned in a televised speech marking the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party.

Beijing’s tone towards the U.S. has turned even more belligerent since President Donald Trump left the White House. The U.S.-China summit in Alaska ended in a train wreck, with Chinese representatives humiliating the Biden negotiating team in front of running cameras.

China is not the only rogue regime investing in underground ballistic missile facilities. Earlier this year, Iran — a key Chinese ally in the Middle East — unveiled a massive underground ballistic missiles storage facility. “Iranian state TV … aired footage of what it said was a new [Iran’s Islamic] Revolutionary Guard base, a ‘missile city’ armed to the teeth with cruise and ballistic weapons,” the CNBC reported in March.

The Biden White House hopes to contain the Iranian nuclear threat by rolling back Trump-era economic sanctions and restoring the disastrous Obama-Kerry deal.

Nothing else about his benifactors bothers him or his regime.

“The Biden White House is alarmed that Chinese nuclear arsenal appears to be growing “more quickly, and to a higher level than perhaps previously anticipated,”

Just as Florida condo owners were alarmed about deteriorating conditions of their building but inaction led to the fall of the building, so Biden will do nothing about the deteriorating conditions of our country and it will eventually lead to our to our downfall.

    or they may have reported their concerns to the Board president only to have that esteemed functionary tell them, “The management firm will tell us what to do.”

      After which the Board president pulls out a card from their pocket and says “I’m sorry I can only hear concerns from two residents today and they must be happy ones, man, because the 4th of July is coming up.”

    He’s alarmed because they are doing this without cutting him into the action.

If the time came to counterattack, would Joe even be able to read the nuclear codes? Would anyone understand the creepy, jumbled, whispered commands he might give?

The same foreign policy people from the Obama years are back for another round, with the same thinking they had then and a mission to reverse everything the Trump admin accomplished. This time it’s blatantly obvious to the rest of the world it’s all hat, no cattle, Biden is pretty much a figurehead, and Harris isn’t ready for prime time.

China will not respect any words or statements from America. They will, however, listen to action. Not that the Biden administration has any intent to act; for progressives, words are not only violence but also acts, so they don’t have to do anything, their words are sufficient.

In the real world, an American president could do several things —

First, signal the giant corporations that over the next year it won’t be business as usual for American imports from China. Over the next year we’ll start to impose tariffs and other import restrictions. We’ll start with the things we most need to have move from China to the U.S. (e.g., pharmaceuticals and the building block industries for pharma) and go from there. Let Mr. Cook at Apple know that he’d better start moving some production lines to other countries (India, Taiwan, Thailand).

Second, let the companies that own our MSM, and who have substantial exposure to China, know that they’d better lower their exposures (e.g, Disney/ABC), as there will be proposed changes to the U.S. tax code that will tax these exposures heavily. Let them scream.

Third, let it slip out that we’re considering some significant sales of defensive weapons, including latest generation Patriot missiles to Taiwan. And that we’re considering sharing the joint US-Israeli Iron Dome system to Taiwan. And that Vietnam is potentially interested in the same.

Fourth, the Space Command gets cracking on big upgrades to our Pacific ABM defenses.

Fifth, start tracking the various world-wide investments made by Chinese elites, particularly in the U.S., so as to be able to shutter them if necessary.

Sixth, identify all activities of the “Confucius Institutes” on American campuses, with a plan to shutter them if necessary.

I would get going on all that and see what would be next.

Sundowner won’t do a thing about it, money talks and he was paid a boat full.

“Chinese President Xi Jinping: Beijing’s enemies will “have their heads cracked and bleeding” in any future conflict.”

Oh. Thank goodness there are no mean tweets.

When asked to comment on his administration’s “concern” about the Chinese nuclear build up, he said, “I like Chinese food. Also money. Oh! Good morning. Who are you again?”

What a difference a weak American President makes.

Bet the Chings can’t believe their good luck to have their boy in the White House.

Perhaps the president should worry less about nukes and more that China will use swarms of inexpensive, disposable weapons (such as drones) to defeat our billion-dollar weapons systems, such as our nuclear aircraft carriers?

The USA has some of the best weapons systems in the world, yet many wars have shown that at some point sheer numbers often prevail over weapons systems that, as outstanding though they may be, are so costly that they can be produced and fielded only in small quantities.

And (of course) any weapons system becomes useless if/when you proclaim that, really, you’d never, ever actually be willing to use it.

    The nukes are there precisely so he will worry about them. China wants to intimidate us into ceding control of the Pacific, but they don’t want to destroy their biggest market. As you say, the drones and other lower tech weapons are the real immediate threat, because they can (and, I think, will) use them against our forward elements to gain that control without fear of retaliation due to their nuclear threat.

“President Joe Biden’s administration is worried about Communist China’s growing nuclear arsenal.:

Oh, NOW they’re worried.

“The Biden White House is alarmed that Chinese nuclear arsenal appears to be growing “more quickly, and to a higher level than perhaps previously anticipated.”

Joe Biden is alarmed that since his inauguration, the White House bed is wet almost every morning, and he can’t figure out why.

The Dems are so worried about Iran’s growing nuclear power that they’ve decided to finance it.

Actually, they’re not concerned at all. And they will do absolutely nothing about it.

They’re throwing a bone to the stupid gullible neocons, and their miniscule cadre of fans, to keep them on board the Comrade Biden job approval train. No doubt Lizzy swooned.

They’re going to do it anyway, but funding them, at our expense, their expense, selectively, is really the icing on the cake baked by globalists and transnationalists.

They may get around to this after then have the 4th of July march by with military forced to wave G-lib, Antifa, and BLM flags. The Stars and Stripes need not apply.

Biden is a willing participant in the chinese military and nuclear buildup, along with nearly the entire republican party that helped get rid of president Trump.

Our government sold us out to the CCP many years ago.
