Retired Colonel Wang Xiangsui of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) said that China now has every opportunity to fully respond to a nuclear strike against the United States. He said Beijing has spent the last 20 years building nuclear forces, including building more than 5,000 km of underground tunnels for covert transportation of charges. This is well known in the United States, where every year more and more fear of Chinese missiles. In an attempt to contain China, Washington is pressing its allies, including Russia, to prevent the start-up treaty.
Wang Xiangsui presented his assessment of China’s nuclear capabilities last month in a closed forum, the details of which have only now been known. According to him, until recently the U.S. believed that after the first nuclear strike on China, there is only one such warhead, capable of reaching American territory as an answer. But now this view is wrong: China has every opportunity to significantly increase the price of the nuclear option for the United States.
