China now has the biggest numerical navy in the world, with approximately 355 ships and submarines, according to a U.S. Department of Defense report released this month.
President Xi (who could be preparing to make himself ruler for life) can also boast of the world’s largest coast guard, and is set to have 1,000 nuclear warheads by 2030, according to the report.
BAD TIMING: It was revealed this week that for 33 years, strength tests were falsified for half the steel produced for U.S. submarines.
It might mean nothing, but Chinese citizens were told to stock up on supplies for the next few months. It’s odd that never happened during the pandemic.
