Scientists discover a massive field of nuclear silos in China, signaling a significant nuclear expansion in the country
China is constructing a network that could house up to 110 nuclear silos in a desert in the remote eastern part of the country's Xinjiang province, according to scientists from the Federation of American Scientists, a nonprofit global think tank.

As first reported by The New York Times on Monday, scientists said construction at the site, near the city of Hami, most likely began around March. Using satellite images from the geospatial-data company Planet, they have discovered at least 14 silos and grounds cleared to build another 19. Judging from the network grid, it could house as many as 110 silos.

These underground silos are typically used to house intercontinental ballistic missiles — long-range missiles designed to deliver nuclear payloads.

The latest revelation follows a separate discovery of 119 silos under construction near Yumen in the neighboring Gansu province last month, The Washington Post reported, using satellite images from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at Monterey.

It is unlikely that even with its latest expansion, China will compete with Russia and the US. According to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, China is thought to have about 350 nuclear weapons, lagging far behind Russia's 6,225 and the 5,550 built by the US.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak.
