More on the ASBM

Project 2049 on the Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles.

For several months now this topic has been brought up by various military publications.  Unfortunately, it looks like the “peaceful rise” policy is more for show.  The intention to deny or discourage the US fleets operation in the west pacific is qauite clear.

Bloomberg and AFP also report on the statements made by Gates on the related subject.

    It’s too bad that those in Washington are not made of sterner stuff. A simple, “develop an ASBM that works and we will be forced to fully supply and diplomatically recognize Taiwan” would give those in Beijing much pause, and angst.
