United States China progress. After the recent conflicts that have sparked between the United States and China, on Monday morning the Government of the United States warned that China’s military progress could raise tensions in the world. Is Biden terrified of the Asian ‘threat’?
It was Pentagon spokeperson John Kirby, who gave a press conference in which he spoke about the issue and stated that for this reason the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, describes the country of China as the main military challenge for the United States, since Beijing’s actions will set the tone in Washington’s defense policy, according to Efe Agency.
The United States concerned about China’s advance
“This is why we will remain focused on ensuring that we can work towards a free and open Indo-Pacific. We will continue to focus on the challenges that China presents us, “said the spokesman. In that sense, Kirby highlighted the importance of cooperating with allies and partners in that region against Beijing.
It should be remembered that China launched a hypersonic missile a few weeks ago and that in August it reached the entire world. US officials have found themselves “surprised” and somewhat “reeling” at the possibility of the risks shown by the military armament of the eastern country. Will it be a threat to the world?
The United States Government concerned about the advance of arms in China
The United States government is concerned about the weapons that Asians are creating and fear that a war will develop that will leave them at a disadvantage. The dispute between both countries for being the best in the world looks a bit balanced for China, which has shown greater advances in military weapons.
In recent weeks, tensions have increased between the US and China over the defense agreement between Washington, Canberra and London, called AUKUS; the dispute over Taiwan and the South China Sea; or accusations that Beijing has tested hypersonic missiles.
Could it be that the United States is terrified by China’s military advances?
It was last Friday that US Intelligence raised concerns about China’s development of emerging technologies that could put Beijing ahead of Washington in the military and other fields. Since President Biden showed his support for Beijing earlier.
The U.S. Center for National Counterintelligence and Security (NCSC) noted in a report that China aims to take the lead in various fields by 2030, including biotechnology, advanced computing and Artificial Intelligence. . For its part, the US does not want to be left behind in this competition.
China worries several governments
It should be remembered that the missile launched by the Asians with nuclear capacity did not reach its objective but still the demonstration of power that the Chinese military force contains. The United States government is concerned about the weapons they are creating and fear that a war will develop that will leave them at a disadvantage.
This news is what has kept the alerts on, around the fears of other governments because this is a reliable proof of the power they are developing in military weapons and that it could become a latent threat. China did not comment on the matter.
Missile missed its target, which has the United States worried about China’s advance
The Sun mentioned that the nuclear-capable missile missed its target for about two dozen miles when it was secretly launched in August and that, until October, they made known of its existence and alerted the media and governments of different countries that fear a world war will develop.
“The chilling test has alarmed US officials and shows how China has made astonishing progress in developing its hypersonic weapons,” said one of the sources who gave statements to the Financial times. The person who gave statements to the media announced that it is a great achievement for China but a terror for the United States.
Where was this rocket developed?
According to The Sun, an Asian national security official and a Chinese security expert close to the People’s Liberation Army said the weapon in China was being developed by the country’s Aerospace Aerodynamics Academy. This new ‘weapon’ is the sign that the government tries to surpass the other world powers with its armaments.
Given the sources’ statements, the Aerospace Aerodynamics Academy publicly announced several rocket launches, but the hypersonic missile test in August was kept secret, The Sun noted. “We have no idea how they did this,” a source told the Financial Times. Filed Under: United States China Advances
An achievement for China
In an interview with Taylor Fravel, an expert on China’s nuclear weapons policy, he mentioned that a hypersonic glider armed with a nuclear warhead could help China against US weapons; This new news could assure that in these moments, the eastern country is one of the most advanced in terms of military weapons.
“Hypersonic glide vehicles … fly in lower trajectories and can maneuver in flight, making them difficult to track and destroy,” Taylor Fravel told the media after China’s participation in a new deadly weapon. Filed Under: United States China Advances
They are worried
Given the achievements that China has obtained, the United States Government mentioned in a recent interview that they are concerned about the agility that their counterparts have shown and that they have only increased the existing tension that surrounds both nations. This is one of the greatest challenges of the American country.
“We have made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that China continues to seek, capabilities that only increase tensions in the region and beyond.” Said spokesman John Kirby and rescued The Sun. “That is one of the reasons why we view China as our main pace challenge,” he concluded.

They are ‘excuses’ from the United States
The spokesman for the Chinese embassy, Liu Pengyu, said that the United States had always sought excuses to counterattack the eastern country and therefore believed that this new weapon was a danger to its interests. Furthermore, he mentioned that they were not interested in having an ‘arms race’ with other powers.
“We don’t have a global strategy and military operations plans like the United States does. And we are not interested in anything in having an arms race with other countries, “said the spokesman in charge of the possible statements that could be generated by the nuclear weapon. “In contrast, the United States has in recent years been inventing excuses such as ‘the threat from China’ to justify its arms expansion and the development of hypersonic weapons.”, explained.
