China Deploys Missiles Capable of Sinking US Ships — ‘Sink Two Aircraft Carriers’: Chinese Admiral’s Chilling Recipe to Dominate the South China Sea

  • RT America Published on Jan 10, 2019
    China claims to have mobilized its supersonic nuclear missile to safeguard South China Sea. The so-called carrier and anti-ship missile has been deployed to the country’s northwest and if deployed, could cost up to 10,000 US lives. This saber-rattling comes in response to what China calls “grave violations” of their sovereignty. RT America’s Sara Montes de Oca has the story.
  • As long as the trade negotiations do not come up with an agreement, there is a threat of war between USA and China. With USA escalating its attacks on HuaWei, ie. Chinese corporations … it is not a good sign that the trade war will end. The recent rhetoric by Chinese president XiJinPing is also not a good sign:

  • ‘Sink Two Aircraft Carriers’: Chinese Admiral’s Chilling Recipe to Dominate the South China Sea

    Beijing has a devastating plan to force the world out of the East and South China Seas — and it could cost the US 10,000 lives.

    They’re the pride of the US fleet: enormous 100,000 tonne, 333m long nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. But Beijing thinks they’re Washington’s achilles heel.

    Rear Admiral Lou Yuan has told an audience in Shenzhen that the ongoing disputes over the ownership of the East and South China Seas could be resolved by sinking two US super carriers.

    Taiwan’s Central News Agency (CNA) reports Admiral Lou gave a wide-ranging speech on the state of Sino-US relations. The high-profile, hawkish military commentator reportedly declared the current trade spat was “definitely not simply friction over economics and trade,” but was instead a “prime strategic issue”.

    His speech, delivered on December 20 to the 2018 Military Industry List summit, declared that China’s new and highly capable anti-ship ballistic and cruise missiles were more than capable of hitting US carriers, despite them being at the centre of a ‘bubble’ of defensive escorts. “What the United States fears the most is taking casualties,” Admiral Lou declared. He said the loss of one super carrier would cost the US the lives of 5000 service men and women. Sinking two would double that toll. “We’ll see how frightened America is.”
