South China Sea: China Preparing For War With New Bombers, Lethal Weapons

China is focusing its efforts on the South China Sea dispute, prompting concerns not just from countries in the region but also from the West. After China made it clear that it wants to claim the region as its territory, here come news about Beijing more strategic bombers. Will China’s newfound military supremacy propel the nation to power?

China Preparing for War with New Bombers

Many analysts warned that China’s ascension to power is no longer friendly. Experts warned that the country is willing to go to war should its interests be threatened. Furthermore, China made it clear that it believes it has the rights over the South China Sea region, justifying its efforts in the area.

Now, NZ Herald reports that China is building a new type of strategic bomber to “significantly increase” the nation’s long-range strike capability. This, despite growing tension in the disputed area. Reports from People’s Daily, Global Times, and South China Morning Post revealed the announcement of People’s Liberation Army Air Force chief Ma Xiaotian on the long-range strategic bomber project.

According to the official, the world should see the bomber in the future. China has been working on its military hardware for years, with majority of assets reportedly comprised of combat aircraft, tank, warship, and submarine eventually going into service.

More Lethal Weapons

On top of China’s strategic bombers, National Interest reports that Europe has been selling Asia massive amounts of lethal weapon.

“France and Germany, the most powerful EU member states, have the lion’s share in the European arms sales to Asian-Pacific countries,” the report said.

“Thus for the EU, it is (arms) business as usual in Asia, like for the US and Russia, even though the European integration has been built and developed on a ‘pacifist’ platform after the Second World War’s tragedies. But this is yet another cruel irony of history,” it added.
