History repeats itself

The People’s Republic China (PRC) is rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal and “intends to produce over 1,000 warheads by 2030”, a new report by the Pentagon has revealed. In a report titled “Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China (PRC) 2021”…

Meanwhile, the report also mentioned that China is seeking to establish a more robust overseas logistics and basing infrastructure to allow China’s People’s Liberation Army “to project and sustain military power at greater distances”. “Beyond its base in Djibouti, the PRC is pursuing additional military facilities to support naval, air, ground, cyber, and space power projection,” the Pentagon said in the report.

Who says “No one ever learned anything from the examples set by the United States!” And, BTW, the GOUSA acknowledges now down to only 3750 nuclear warheads.

    Learned something? Yeah. Just nothing useful to a healthy course forward for humankind. Which follows the example of the United States all too well.

    Policy analyst Stephen Semler on Thursday argued that the current version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) marks a significant increase in spending from last year and puts the U.S. “back to starting an arms race with another major power.” https://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/573678-policy-analyst-says-massive-defense-bill-puts-us-in-arms-race-with-china
    The NDAA would allocate roughly $778 billion to the Pentagon for Fiscal Year 2022, a nearly $40 billion increase from 2021 and the largest called for in the bill in eight years.
