    Foreign Affairs is one of my major interests, particularly what is happening in Asia, the Far East, specifically China. I have written and posted several comments with factual links on my weblog www.onwardjames.blogspot.com

    One just has to type in one word in the searchbox then scroll for some input.

    It seems many in Taiwan read the comments. I hope they understand and appreciate sarcasm, yet seriousness.

    This latest input about China intrigues me. The Chinese have built 3000 miles of tunnels for arsenals and security. Mao started during his regime phase; the beginning of an underground empire. Tunnels are a history of China. At present, evidently, the 2nd Artillary Corps are building tunnels.

    The democratic nations thought there were about 300 to 400 nuclear weapons. But why so many connected tunnels? A home in case there is an attack? Pundits think that they have many more arsenals, in the thousands.

    They found this out when an earthquake collapse exposede concrete, the kind which indicated tunnels.

    I heard this on one of my favourtie Ameriucan Talk Radio programs, John Batchelor of 770AM WABC.

    Couldn't edit the posting in time, spelling errors and an addition, so here it is again...

    China’s Underground “Great Wall”: A Success for Nuclear Primacy | Center for Strategic and International Studies
    http://csis.org/blog/chinas-underground-great-wall-success-nuclear-primacy

    "Nuclear security analysts are becoming increasingly worried about China’s development of a 3000-mile underground “Great Wall” to shelter their nuclear weapons. The tunnel network introduces serious doubts about the United States’ ability to carry out a disarming nuclear first strike against China, by introducing uncertainty about the number of Chinese weapons, their location within the underground fortress, and the capability of U.S. weapons to penetrate into the bunker.

    Despite complicating the effectiveness of a U.S. first strike, the Chinese construction of a tunnel system validates the strategy of seeking nuclear primacy over China. By forcing the Chinese pursuit of numerous defensive measures to ensure second-strike capability, the United States reduces the amount of money China can spend to improve their nuclear weapons. The resulting relative lack of appealing first-strike options may make China think twice before escalating from conventional to nuclear war and, more significantly, may dissuade China from creating conditions that could produce conventional conflict in the first place."

    The Chinese are well-known for mega projects. Once upon a time, they managed to build the world's longest wall which can be seen from space. Now they have the world's largest dam, the biggest bird's nest, the largest population...

    They may even try to build the largest underground empire to challenge the King of Hades. In the process, they may end up digging all their way to the US. Hence it may not surprise you to find a Chinese popping out from the ground in your backyard one day.

    It's interesting to hear from a self-professed native about any adverse comment on his community.

    It would also be interesting to get some real information about the huge number of secret Underground Cities in the US . Estimated by some at 200 .
    That is , complexes additional to bunkers , tunnels etc built specifically for post nuclear war or pandemic and includes living complexes , to be used by the elite .
    The most talked about one is the City under the new airport at Dallas . Makes a great research project

    It looks like the US is still dominating on the ground, above the ground and under the ground.
