A leading US lawmaker who fears budget cuts could delay modernizing the US nuclear arsenal voiced concern Friday about an extensive tunnel complex designed to house Chinese nuclear missiles.
This network of tunnels could be in excess of 5,000 kilometers (3,110 miles), and is used to transport nuclear weapons and forces,” said Michael Turner, who chairs a House Armed Services Committee panel focusing on strategic weapons and other security programs.
“As we strive to make our nuclear forces more transparent, China is building this underground tunnel system to make its nuclear forces even more opaque,” he added, citing an unclassified Department of Defense report.
Experts also expressed their concern about the network, whose existence was revealed by official Chinese media in late 2009.
The tunnels would allow China to launch a nuclear counter-attack if it was hit by a nuclear strike. “It’s almost mind-boggling,” said Mark Schneider, senior analyst at the National Institute for Public Policy.
“It has enormous implications in terms of their view toward nuclear warfare, survivability of their systems and their leadership in the event of war. It is virtually impossible to target anything like that, irrespective of how many nuclear weapons you have,” he added.
Richard Fisher of the International Assessment and Strategy Center said the tunnel complex could allow the Chinese army to conceal its weapons. “Do we really know how many missiles the Chinese have today?” he asked.
Turner expressed concern that planned cuts to the Pentagon could block efforts to modernize the US arsenal. “We need to understand the potential long-term consequences of watching as Russia and China modernize their nuclear arsenal while we sit back and simply maintain our existing and aging nuclear forces,” he warned.

  1. What about the Chinese free trade zones here in the USA. Who is to say they wouldn’t dig nuclear tunnels under them?
    They shouldn’t be here. Do a search on google – you’ll be surprised at how many FTZs there are.

     
  2. I still don’t know Why Our Military doesn’t take Them Out?
    No. Not The Chinese!
    “Our Government Officials;… For Putting America In Our Vulnerable Position!”
    “Militarily and Financially!”

     
  3. Geee…you mean just like OUR secret underground tunnels with the terminus under Denver? The ones with the DUMB (Deep Underground Military Base ) bunkers for the political elite to hunker in so they can survive and rule over a decimated We the People.Sigh…Satan’s little helpers have been busy.

     
  4. I really don’t see anything we can do about this.
    The scary thing is the Chinese don’t think like countries in the West, and aren’t afraid to absorb huge losses.

  5. Dennis to wipe out the corruption in DC it might come to that.

     
  6. ML is right. There is an entire list of these zones in the CONUS at the web site below. No barriers, no tariffs, and they are sovereign. God only knows what they are bringing into those zones, like the Chinese one in Texas. Could be arms, could be soldiers, could be nukes.

  7. If they (our military) could manage some excellent spying and find some key points to the tunnels, they could do with some, um, strategically well placed drops in key places and bring the whole thing down. I mean, we must already have some good spying going on, or they wouldn’t know how much tunneling they have. Just sayin’! But then that would only be if we were actually at war with China, and we’re not, so it’s sort of moot until we become so.
