Nato warns of military challenge posed by China

Source: BBC

Nato leaders meeting for a summit in Brussels have warned of the military threat posed by China, saying its behaviour is a "systemic challenge".

China, they said, was rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal, was "opaque" about its military modernisation and was co-operating militarily with Russia.

Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg warned China was "coming closer" to Nato in military and technological terms.

But he stressed the alliance did not want a new Cold War with China.

1. Pretty stupid move to pick a fight with the people that build all your stuff

We need to learn how to coexist without threatening the other people on this planet.

3. A war with China would be a suicide mission.

And conservatives seem hell bent on taking us down that path to pay for the suffering caused by COVID. The warmongering coming from the right is going to get very intense in the next couple of years. Count on it.

Also - I'm entirely convinced a conservative president would declare war on China. We must do everything we can to stop this from happening.

6. Xi Jinping is a belligerent expansionist dictator who aims for global control.


China is a thief and a bully to its neighbors, and a rapacious colonialist in the Third World

We're not dealing with a benevolent, peace-loving regime
