China conducts mock intercontinental ballistic missile strike exercise
BEIJING: China's Rocket Force, the strategic and tactical missile operator of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), has conducted a simulated intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) strike mission from an underground bunker against an imaginary enemy, official media here reported.
China Central Television (CCTV), which carried the news, however, did not disclose the details about the location and time of the exercise.
The Rocket Force was set up by the PLA three years ago as President stepped up efforts to modernise the 2 million-strong Chinese military, the world's largest force.
The Rocket Force was carved out from the second artillery corps and it functioned in coordination with the Strategic Support Force which focussed on navigation and cyber technology support.
China's land-based ICBM has a flight range of 12,000 km and could potentially hit targets in the US, state-run Global Times reported.
Revealing the ICBM test, the CCTV report said long-term survival training in closed environments has become routine for the troops to ensure counterattack capability in case a war breaks out, the report said.

Fifty years back India was way ahead of China but because Indian politicians became so corrupt that they started looting public funds with a concept that I loot, You loot, We loot, let Country go to hell. So India's growth was halted. Scam after Scam continued. Having left with no choice Modi got thumping majority. But the mess of 60 years will take time to get cleared specially because every official has become Habitual of choir. Habits die hard. But if Modi continue for 10-15 years, we can hope a better India.

Very well said sir, moreover, because of these looters, we remained as "Developing Country", thought we had all the natural and human resource, while China, Japan, Germany have reached to a new height. We should be ashamed of ourselves of being slaves even 70 years after independence and doing slavery to one family and allow them to loot.

This is all hogwash. If someone thinks China will risk a nuclear war or even a conventional with US or India, they are idiots. Chinese are too shrewed to lose their decades of progress.

China is arrogant and expansionist. It wants to take Pangaa with the rest of the World. Otherwise india too has a capability to build 12K km ICBM. India just does not need them because India is friends with the whole World minus China and Pakistan.

Chances are USA will respond by testing Minuteman missile. While missile tests are important for defence preparedness the timing is suspect especially when China rhetoric against Taiwan is increasing steadily. ICBM test is clearly aimed at US but China should be aware that US is the only country that can survive a nuclear war

Why China should not be slapped with sanctions because of these kind of provocative missile tests?

Anyone will comment why India lags compared to China whereas China was far too behind India in 1950? What reply do we have? Indian scientist and engineers are no less intelligent but still we lag. Why? My answer is that responsible are our rulers of last 65-70 years.
