China may have conducted low-level nuclear test, US says

China may have secretly conducted a low-yield underground nuclear test, despite claiming to observe an international pact banning such blasts, the US state department said in a report. The report cites increased activity at China’s Lop Nur test site, including extensive excavations, and Beijing’s suspected use of special chambers to contain explosions to make the observation.

Beijing blocked nuclear sensors established by the IAEA to monitor for nuclear detonations. If there is a legitimate reason to do that I can't imagine what it would be. It's not definitive proof of a test but it certainly raises questions that Beijing should be forced to answer.

Yes, that's exactly what should be high on China's list of priorities whilst a pandemic they are 100% responsible for rages across the globe. But I suppose the important question is, how can brain dead liberals blame this on Trump?

The US is always ready to put out stories like thos when convenient. Im sure theres nothing but speculation as usual. How about if the journalist did their jobs and asked for evidence?

Oh China boy. Your Daddy and superior overlord West is now seriously mad alright. Prepare to have your a*s handed to you for the next 300 years. These are all hooks coming one after another, building legal and political leverage, isolating and eventually getting to total economic slicing of your knees. China's stability is built around growth. Once growth is cut, stability is jeopardized. You may want to choose a different number other that 1 for that "1-China" policy when the dust is settled from all this. Oh and the sovereign state of Taiwan says hi.

It's called "Manufacturing Consent." This is in response to the fact that they stopped using the petrodollar. Russia, Seria and Iran have also followed suit. This is the cause for the sudden drop in oil prices which is contributing to the economic disaster.

Start a pandemic, destabilize the world economy, spy on everyone, hack the world, test some nukes... All they need to do now is toss about some mustard gas, and they can collect the whole set.

This is just another dirty trick used by China to undermine the globalization of the manpower of the United States. This is a secretive measure that China wants to control out nuclear capabilities

But..why? Surely they know how to make nukes by this point. Are they just "These nukes are past their expiration date. Let's see if they still work *BOOOOM!* Yup. They're still good."
