What is China Preparing For?

• by Aden Tate

We still have more ICBMs, many of which are very old and the staff are being fired from working at, but China has more "land-based fixed and mobile ICBM launchers." Granted, a lot of those silos China has are empty, but China did just approve a $225 billion military budget, a lot of which is predicted to go toward nuclear weaponry. It's presumed that within the next ten years, those silos will be filled.

This comes right about the same time that Xi Jinping has been upping the rhetoric against the United States, saying that America is working on a policy of "containment, encirclement, and suppression," sounding very similar to German discussions for more "Lebensraum" in the 1930s.

Not just nukes

As they do with any world conflict, China has been studying the Ukrainian conflict extensively. They've published several studies over the course of the past year looking at the use of weaponry and tactics throughout Ukraine and have come to several conclusions as a result.
