Subject: a better pic of Chicom nuclear arsenal

1. DF-31 has a max range of 8000km plus which translate into approx 5500 miles enough to hit the west coast perhaps several Rocky Mt. states. as well (NORAD is located near Colorado Spring in Cheyenne Mt.) 2. open source indicates DF-5 ICBMs are armed with 5-MT nuclear warhead, not 2-MT or 10-MT. 3. PLA NAVY has more than one Xia class (TYPE-92) SSBN, a reasonable number will be 2-3, at least one boat already armed JL-2 (naval version of DF-31) which gives PLA NAVY roughly the same striking range comparable to Trident C-4 (7400km range) 4. We do know most of their launch facility except the ones that are mobile and those hidden deep in Mt. conclusion: never underestimate your enemy, Chicom is not that stupid

"never underestimate your enemy, Chicom is not that stupi " -- NomadSoul ----- What underestimation is occurring? In what way has someone assume the Chicoms were "that stupid"? Displacedjim P.S. I'm curious to hear what sources agree with your statement that there's more than one XIA and that there's already one boat (a XIA, presumably) armed with JL-2, because there's only one XIA and it's not (nor is any other boat) armed with JL-2.

I don't particularly like the use of that word Chicom, a little racist maybe? A moderator should tell me more about it.

Chicom=Communist China is racist? Don't think so. You're imagining things that aren't there. Personally I think it's easier to say china, but whatever works for you.

Chicom is a label to describe a person who is a Chinese communist. If the shoe fits, wear it: If you're not a communist then please don't feel offended as we're not talking about you, but if you are a communist then I couldn't care less how you feel about it. Displacedjim

Because I have no reason to be concerned about the tender, delicate sensibilities of a communist regarding whether I call him a communist. Displacedjim

Personally I prefer to use the terms "Red China" , "Commie Rat", and "Chink". Really they are communists, who cares how they feel?
