Communist China has tested a new ballistic missile that could significantly grow their power in the Pacific. The Free Beacon reports:
China’s Defense Ministry this week confirmed the test firing of a new submarine-launched ballistic missile the Pentagon regards as a strategic weapon capable of striking anywhere in the United States from underwater launch points.
Asked about the test of the new JL-3 submarine-launched ballistic missile, Sr. Col., Ren Guoqiang, a Defense Ministry spokesman, acknowledged the test firing.
“It is normal for China to conduct scientific research and tests according to plan,” Ren said during the monthly press briefing.
“These tests are not targeted against any country or specific entity,” he said. “China follows a defense policy which is defensive in nature and an active defense military strategy, and our development of weapons and equipment is to meet the basic demand of protecting China’s national security.”
Democrats insist on saying China is no enemy, but this clearly shows the opposite.
