It looks like the United States, Australia, and United Kingdom teaming up to build nuclear submarines is making someone in China nervous. Their communist party mouthpiece, The Global Times, claims that Australia is now a target for a nuclear missile.
The propaganda outlet published an article titled, “Nuke sub deal could make Australia potential nuclear war target.”
The article said:
“Chinese military experts warned that [AUKUS] will potentially make Australia a target of a nuclear strike if a nuclear war breaks out even when Washington said it won’t arm Canberra with nuclear weapons because it’s easy for the US to equip Australia with nuclear weapons and submarine-launched ballistic missiles when Australia has the submarines.”
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian — notorious for falsely suggesting that the US military released COVID-19 in Wuhan, China — said AUKUS “seriously damages regional peace and stability, intensifies the arms race, and undermines the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.”
Zhao said, “China will pay close attention to the development of the AUKUS deal. Relevant countries should abandon their Cold War and zero-sum game mentality; otherwise, they will lift a rock that drops on their own feet.”
What is interesting about this initiative is that not all countries were invited to participate, and one of the old countries got their feelings hurt in the process.
The AUKUS initiative received an unexpectedly strong reaction this week from France, which owns island territories in the Pacific and Indian oceans. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France Info radio, “It is really a stab in the back.”…
In protest, France canceled a Friday night gala in DC that was set to celebrate the 240th anniversary of the French navy’s victory in a battle that helped secure American independence and recalled their ambassador.
Never mind services rendered and never repaid in the early twentieth century from the US.
