August 30, 2012

Rear Admiral Yin Zhou says the the proposed US missile defense shield for South East Asia is really just a conspiracy designed to force China (and India) to misallocate their defense budgets on relatively useless weapons.  Yin told an open online Chinese defense forum this week that the real goal of the US system is not missile defense, but rather “to set up a big trap, a trap in fact for all other countries to fall in. That is to say, it aims to force America’s opponents to invest huge amounts into developing nuclear and ballistic weapons to drain your limited military resources. While in fact these nuclear and ballistic weapons you developed will not have real use in an actual war, they will leave you with no money for developing conventional weapons.”
