China Responds To Pentagon Allegations, Calls US Main ‘Destroyer Of World Peace’

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

Responding to the US Department of Defense’s annual report to the US Congress on Chinese military capabilities and policies, published earlier this month, a spokesman for China’s Ministry of Defence castigated the US, describing it as the main “destroyer of world peace”.

The Pentagon’s report examined the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) technical capabilities, doctrines and the underlying objectives of China’s military modernization and expansion, expressing concern about China’s expanding nuclear arsenal and navy, with particular criticism for what it claimed is China’s lack of disclosure over military policies and strategic objectives.

The report concluded that China’s military modernization will have “serious implications for U.S. national interests and the security of the international rules-based order.”

As reported by AP news, a spokesman for China’s Ministry of Defence responded on Sunday, stating that the US is the main “destroyer of world peace” and calling the Pentagon report a “wanton distortion” of China’s intentions. LINK

“Many years of evidence shows that it is the U.S. that is the fomenter of regional unrest, the violator of the international order and the destroyer of world peace,” the spokesman said, citing US actions in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other countries over the past two decades which he said have resulted in the deaths of more than 800,000 people and the displacement of millions more.

“Rather than reflecting on itself, the U.S. issued a so-called report that made false comments about China’s normal defence and military construction,” he added. “We call on the U.S. to view China’s national defence and military construction objectively and rationally, cease making false statements and related reports, and take concrete actions to safeguard the healthy development of bilateral military relations.”

What might be the “healthy development of bilateral military relations” – as PRC MoD quoted as saying?

Laurent Parodi

That means do not completely destroy trust between our armies.

AG Korvin

Wise.

There is no trust between the two countries … for a long time. Tactical movement is all that

37 millions of fugitives from their own homes from 9/11 2001
33/35 millons of deaths from the II WW, (declassified by the same CIA)
~1000 military bases around the world
Near all the countries occupied or under threats or unwanted interventions
The export of democracy go very well…

“the U.S. is the fomenter of regional unrest, the violator of the international order and the destroyer of world peace”

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
