China Nukes Can Now Reach US. Rumsfeld is Worried (Duh!)
I’m an amateur, and I can figure this one out. They intend to become the other “Super Power”, with the ability to strike us at will.
In a report to Congress last July, the Pentagon expressed worry about China's expanding missile force. "It is fielding more survivable missiles capable of targeting India, Russia, virtually all of the United States, and the Asia-Pacific theater as far south as Australia and New Zealand," the report said.
But they have Club Gitmo to worry about, and elections to win. They cannot be bothered right now with the rise of a new Communist threat to the United States.
