    China To Deploy Nuclear Weapons In South China Sea?

    In what appears to be the clearest sign of China’s ambitions in the South China Sea, the country is reportedly looking to invest in floating maritime nuclear platform in the region. According to reports, Beijing wants to build nuclear plants even with ongoing opposition from the United States. Will tensions go nuclear?

    China is working on bringing its ambitions closer to fruition as reports about nuclear platforms in development in South China Sea now resurface. The nuclear power platforms will supposedly be used to support the country’s projects in the disputed region. Information came from a state-run newspaper although the foreign ministry denied hearing anything about it.


    Previously, China made waves following its supposed militarization activities on a series of islands in the region. The country has been linked to development of runways and other infrastructure that some feel would otherwise be strategic for the nation’s military force.

    China Confirms Multiple-Warhead Missile Test in South China Sea

    New DF-41 missile was launched carrying two dummy warheads

    China’s Defense Ministry on Thursday confirmed that Beijing fired its newest long-range missile into the South China Sea in a test this week, amid growing tensions between Washington and Beijing.

    Responding to a report in the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday, the ministry defended the missile launch in an unusual confirmation of a nuclear system test.

    “It is normal for China to execute scientific experiments within its territory, and these experiments are not aimed at any specific country nor target,” the ministry said.

    The statement said the long-range missile was test fired “near the South China Sea on April 12.”

    “The so-called test location reported by the media is pure conjecture,” the statement said.

    The floating nuclear power generators are an interesting development and the missile test swell. The generators show that they plan to stay for a long period of time, and the missile test a middle finger. But its not certain if they tested it or not: http://thediplomat.com/2016/04/did-china-really-test-a-mirv-capable-icbm-near-the-south-china-sea/

    Whether they tested it or not, this just shows that China lied about the nature of the fake islands - they kept saying that it is for "peaceful purpose" and will not "militarize" the region, but their actions tell otherwise.
