China deploys DF-21 nuclear missiles, capable of destroying US military bases in Japan

The following is a translation from Chinese state media:

Qianzhan.com says in its report: The DF-21 series of ballistic missiles are China’s most advanced ballistic missiles, with accuracy close to cruise missiles. They are capable of destroying US military bases in Japan. Among them, the DF-21D is the PLA’s means to deal with US aircraft carrier battle groups.

According to US intelligence, the DF-21 and DF-21A missiles carry nuclear warheads, and respectively have ranges of at least 1,770 and 2,150 km, while the DF-21C carries conventional warheads and has a maximum range of 1,770 km. The anti-ship DF-21D has a range of 1,450 km, but some [unspecified] US media says its range is 3,000 km.

[Unspecified] Western media has disclosed that China mainly deploys the missiles in Liaoning, Jiangxi, Yunnan, Fujian and Qinghai. However, as far back as in 2010, Canada’s Kanwa Defence Review published a report on the deployment of such missiles in Laiwu, Shandong. At the same time it published a satellite photo of China’s deployment of some of its military facilities. Judging by the photo, what China had deployed in Shandong were DF-21 intermediate-range missiles. Kanwa believes that the range of the missiles cover most military bases in Japan.

Chinese military has recently made public some photos of the drill of missile troops on snow-covered mountains in northern China. Upon analysis of the photos, some military experts believe that the photos were taken on Changbai Mountains, Jilin Province. It means that China has deployed the DF-21 series of missiles there to cover all of Japan. Moreover, the DF-21D missiles deployed there can blockade Japan.

There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
