While the United States has not deployed a new ICBM in almost half a century and keeps having to test fire them to make sure that they still work, and America's destroyer keeps hosting "anti-nuclear proliferation" confabs, the Russians are deploying nuclear ballistic missile drone submarines, and now the ChiComms have added the longest range ICBM on the planet to their arsenal:
While Barack Obama prepares to meet [Red] China's [dictator] Xi Jinping at a nuclear security summit in Washington on Thursday, the Financial Times reports that a new generation of Chi[Comm] intercontinental ballistic missiles with a 14,500 km estimated range may come into service as early as this year.
The Financial Times reports the DF-41 would be the first Chi[Comm] missile that's not only capable of carrying multiple warheads, but can also strike any part of the U.S. from anywhere in [Red] China.
"Given the number of real reported tests, it is reasonable to speculate the DF-41 will be deployed to PLA Strategic Rocket Force bases in 2016," said Richard Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center in Washington....
Fisher added that "we will see a period of rapid increases in the numbers of [Red] China's nuclear warheads that can reach the United States."
Funny how the more The One downsizes and disarms all branches and aspects of the U.S. military, the faster all our enemies - Russia, Red China, Iran, North Korea - keep building up their own.
Makes you wonder how long this endgame scenario can be staved off, if the White House were inclined to do the staving.
