Huanqiu: -China’s First Flight Test of New Mobile ICBM Is to Terrorize the U.S.

On October 3, 2014, Huanqiu, the Chinese edition of Global Times, published an article on China’s first flight test of the Dongfeng 31B missile, a new road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile that was developed to deter the United States. Citing a report from the Washington Free Beacon, Huanqiu said that “the missiles can be hidden in garages or caves so that satellites and other sensors cannot detect them.”

“China has made it clear in its state-run media that the PLA has developed nuclear forces for use against the United States. Chinese media have reported that a submarine-launched missile attack on the United States would kill between 5 million and 12 million Americans.”
