The headline of the story that goes with this picture is “Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.“. The first two paras read as follows:
Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific.
On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the “awesomeness” of the People’s Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force.
That is the map that accompanied the story. There are many many ways in which Obama as president is a disaster with this being near the top. Meanwhile Gillard took our defence expenditure down below where it was in 1938. Now picture the geo-political world twenty years from today.
