Today’s link reports that the USA is becoming increasingly concerned about how many nuclear weapons China really has (and is building). A previous post revealed that China has a massive underground tunnel system that can manufacture, transport, and hide China’s nuclear weapons. Today’s link estimates that the tunnel system already includes 3,000 miles of tunnels!
China could hide a lot of nuclear (and other kinds of) weaponry in these tunnels, and the ability the tunnels afford to move nuclear weapons to many changing locations would make it very difficult for an enemy to target China’s nukes in any war against China. This massive nuclear weapons transportation and concealment program strongly indicates that China is vigorously preparing for a future war, and it is taking measures to ensure that its nuclear weapons survive to launch counterstrikes against any and all rivals.
There are widely divergent estimates about how many nuclear weapons China now has. Some estimate as few as 300, but others point out that such a vast network of tunnels could hide as many as 3,000 nuclear weapons. One very senior Russian general has estimated that China already has 3,600 nuclear weapons. No one knows for sure and China certainly isn’t going to reveal the correct number.
US policies do seem to be gradually realizing the major threat against the USA from China. The article adds that US ballistic missile subs now operate mostly in the Pacific Ocean region and more strategic bombers and warships are being assigned to the Pacific region. The article even includes a discussion of US considerations about how effective the USA’s “bunker buster” bombs would be on China’s tunnel system, and an estimate of how many casualties would result from a nuclear attack on the USA by China. The article is well worth reading.
China’s extensive offensive and defensive preparations for war are totally what one should expect, given the prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39. However, since Ezekiel 38:11-13 reveal that the Gog-Magog alliance is attacking the latter-day nations of the house of Israel (the USA, many European nations and their allies) to seize their wealth and goods, this argues against a large nuclear attack by the Gog-Magog alliance. They obviously do not want to atomize the wealth that they are planning to seize in an invasion. While some nukes may be involved, the prophecy argues for an invasion with conventional weaponry.
