Pentagon Issues Stark Warning on China’s Nuclear Ambitions

China is on pace to more than triple its nuclear warhead stockpiles by 2035, the Pentagon warned in a report to Congress on Tuesday.

The report, titled “Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China,” assessed that China “probably” expanded its nuclear program in 2021 and that its stockpiles have “surpassed 400” warheads.

“If China continues the pace of its nuclear expansion, it will likely field a stockpile of about 1,500 warheads by its 2035 timeline,” the Department of Defense assessed.

Beijing is looking to complete the “great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” by 2049 by modernizing politically, socially and militarily under a three-step plan – a date that would mark the 100-year anniversary of the creation of the PRC.

In order to achieve this overarching goal, China is looking to boost its military capabilities to be able to invade Taiwan by 2027, achieve “basically complete modernization” of its armed forces by 2035 and achieve a “world-class military” by 2049.

The Chinese government is also looking to integrate its civilian population in its overhaul under a “Military-Civil Fusion” plan that the report warned will integrate China’s defenses with its civilian technology and industrial sectors.

Beijing plans to fuse its civilian and military sectors through a combined effort to integrate science and technology innovations, blend military and civilian expertise, integrate civilian and military infrastructure requirements and leverage civilian services for military purposes.

The PRC also plans to expand China’s “national defense mobilization system to include all relevant aspects of its society and economy for use in competition and war.”

A senior defense official speaking on background described the plans as “ambitious” and said “it remains to be seen” whether China would actually be able to achieve these goals in the time frame it has laid out.

The official said the latest report to Congress is intended to help the U.S. stay abreast as China plans to “identify key vulnerabilities in an adversary’s operational system” to then “launch precision strikes against those vulnerabilities” in the hopes of “collapsing” China’s adversaries’ systems.

The report warned Congress that China is looking to “amass its national power” to transform geopolitics to be more favorable in Beijing’s national interest – including by beefing up its nuclear capabilities to strengthen its “strategic deterrent.”

The Pentagon earlier this year listed China as its chief security threat in its latest National Defense Strategy issued to Congress.

    “ The Pentagon earlier this year listed China as its chief security threat in its latest National Defense Strategy issued to Congress.”

    So if they consider China such a national security threat why are they allowing China to purchase farmland in North Dakota by the Grand Forks Air Force base?

    “PROBABLY” “MAY HAVE” “MORE THAN LIKELY” These words mean “maybe” at best. SHOW ME THE PROOF.

    Don’t believe a word in this article. The Demoncrats want another world war. NEW WORLD ORDER wants to reduce our populations and control, control, control EVERYTHING.

    Joe Biden called out Zelensky and caused the war in Ukraine. Then, Joe spent $Billions on war materials and weapons to pay back the Oligarchy for helping him call out Zelensky. When the war dwindled and Russia was losing, Joe Biden did it again and spent $10’sBillion. The Demoncrats tried to get Russia to use nuclear devices. You see where this is going? Joe Biden and the Demoncrats want another word war, only nuclear this time. THIS IS ALL DEMONCRAT PROPAGANDA.

    A little History: Viet Nam War—President Johnson made $millions, if not $billions on this war. Lady Bird owned the shipping contracts that moved weapons and supplies world-wide to support the war effort. (I believe she owned TransCon Freight at that time) That’s why Johnson instituted an insurgency in the mid-sixties; to keep the war going and to get Cambodia involved. It has always been the Demoncrats that profited on war; and to cover it up they would spew “Peace” and anti-war rhetoric. All propaganda. SOUND FAMILIAR?

    Remember the “Bay of Pigs” affair with Cuba? …dittos…

    I am with Will. What really did happen in the recent China visits. But there is something more important!

    Who was Biden meeting with in Delaware all the times he was there instead of attending the THIS country? What are the numbers now: 25% of his presidency is in Delaware? Who is he meeting with and what has he done to commit the USA in illegal world deals???? DON’T YOU WANT TO KNOW?
