Beijing mocks America, their 21,000mph nuclear-capable missile a 'new blow to the U.S.'

Beijing has mocked America by saying their secret test of a 21,000mph nuclear-capable missile, which orbited the globe before returning to Earth to strike its target, is a 'new blow to the US's mentality of strategic superiority over China'.

The jibe follows a report from the Financial Times, which cited five unnamed intelligence sources, said the Chinese military launched the Long March rocket in August carrying a 'hypersonic glide vehicle' into low orbit.

It circled the globe before descending towards its target, which is missed by about two dozen miles, in a technological development that would overcome US anti-ballistic missile systems.

The incident caught the US intelligence community by surprise, sources say, as it shows 'China has made astonishing progress on the development of its hypersonic weapons'.

One person familiar with the test said: 'We have no idea how they did this.'

And to rub salt into their wounds, an op-ed in the Chinese state media outlet Global Times, Beijing's mouthpiece, said the test means 'there is a key new member in China's nuclear deterrence system', adding that this is a 'new blow to the US's mentality of strategic superiority over China'.

The hypersonic missiles can reach speeds of up to 21,000 mph and can strike anywhere on Earth from space within minutes.

This is like a mail in ballot for a pandemic that has covid positive illegals pouring into our border-election fraud...

It isn't going away.

If they can’t hit what they are aiming for, it isn’t as impressive as they think.

Joe probably thinks Chiang Kai-shek is still alive and running China, Putin is a Tsar, and that ISIS is just a subsidiary of the Ottoman Empire.

Surely America will assemble a diverse trans inclusive force with septum rings to match China’s hypersonic operation

The Chicoms have no delusions as to what they are dealing with regarding our federal government. All they see now is weakness.

A side note: Both political parties are complicit in this CCP coddling over 50 years---- as equal business partners as the CCP demoralizes us..... But Biden is bringing it home for the swamp and like the rest: making bank doing it.

Nukes are not very useful weapons these days. Its much more effective to shut down the enemies power grid via hacking or just release a virus that has a 99.96% survival rate. Nuke propaganda is used so the government can flood more spending into various black box budgets to never be seen again.

The incident caught the US intelligence community by surprise, they sold the CCP this technology awhile ago and bowed to the CCP's Confucius Centers on American soil sources say, as it shows 'China has made astonishing progress on the development of its hypersonic weapons' but the latest technology sold to them will get you on the Clinton suicide list if spoken about-much faster.

At the same time that they are developing/stealing this technology all our government is concerned with is woke shit, white terrorists and "racism". They won't have to invade Taiwan, they will simply absorb it because the US will not dare to make an attempt to stop them.

I an 100% certain 1 nuke hitting the US would do far more damage to us than COVID has.

All they have to do is hit farmland and we are fricked for generations.

If you intention is to hit a hardened bunker below the White House, NORAD, or somewhere else, aim is pretty fricking important.

I heard this morning that the Chicoms are lauding it as some.type of device that they will use to make personal travel into space more accessible.

Yea right. They are actually laughing at us now for the fools that we have been. American greed created this monster.
