China Might be Preparing to Target US

  • According to a Pentagon report, China is in process of developing long-range bombers and is probably even giving training to its pilots to target the US. The report states that “Over the last three years, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has rapidly expanded its overwater bomber operating areas, gaining experience in critical maritime regions and likely training for strikes against US and allied targets.”

    Xi Jinping, China's President, earlier asserted his aim to modernize the armed forces of the country and updating the military hardware. The US, too, announced a new strategy earlier in 2018 which considered the competition with China as a top challenge.
