China Releases Nuclear Attack Map

In a move that is being viewed as largely unhelpful for Sino-U.S. relations, China released a map that shows how one single Chinese type 094 SSBN rocket carrying submarine with 12 JL-2 warheads can devastate the American West Coast, leaving 5-12 million killed or wounded and spread a cloud of toxic nuclear radiation all the way to Chicago. The Chinese news media release of the map was supposed to both demonstrate the power of China’s military as well as to prove the ability of China to counter any Pacific forces or power the U.S. may have.  One of the Websites that supposedly carried the map of PLA DAILY, the main Chines People’s Liberation Army military website.  China now has the second largest Navy sub fleet in the world at 70 vehicles, including 10 nuclear powered subs and four of those capable of launching nuclear warheads.
