War News Updates: China Wants The United States and Russia Implement ‘Drastic’ Cuts In The Nuclear Arsenals

China called on the United States and Russia – which hold the vast majority of the world’s nuclear warheads – on Monday to make further “drastic” cuts in their atomic arsenals.

A senior Chinese diplomat also told a meeting in Vienna that the development of missile defence systems which “disrupt” the global strategic balance should be abandoned, a possible reference to U.S. plans in Europe that have angered Russia.

Well, of course, China wants the US (and Russia) to bring its strategic weapons arsenal more in line with China’s. It’s a lot cheaper than China feeling the need to build up to parity with us.

  1. Effective BMD would disrupt the geopolitical balance to the extent that it would neuter North Korea, which China has long used as a “mad dog” to get what it wants from the US.

  2. I’m sorry, did I come off as opposed to BMD? I’m a huge fan of anything that renders our enemy’s military investments obsolete. The situation on the Korean peninsula is unstable anyway, we’re better off destabilizing it on our timescale than being surprised by it.

    1. Not at all. I figure you’d be all for it anyway. Amen to the rest. never leave the initiative to your enemy. Make him fight your battle, on his real estate, with your timing. If the left had their way it would be their battle, on our real estate, with his timing. I feel as certain as I can be that you agree with the former and not the latter.

  3. So what’s it tell you when your near-peer military rival who has repeatedly promised to unseat you as a world power, and your own President have the same views on American Nuclear Policy?
