What’s Seen Lurking In Chinese Waters Should Scare The Hell Out Of Us All
As Americans are distracted by the false narrative that Russia is a threat because they allegedly hacked our election, a real danger was seen lurking in Chinese waters that should scare the hell out of us all. As pictures are emerging of China’s not-so-little secret, what’s captured in those images should have all of our hearts beating a little bit faster. This is a game changer, to say the least.
First seen in November of 2016, it appears China has a new secret “humpback” stealth submarine, but what it’s carrying is of great concern. According to Mirror, the sub has enhanced its nuclear capabilities and includes 12 nuclear ballistic missiles reportedly capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.
The new submarine-launched ballistic missiles are speculated to be the JL-2A, which have an 11,200-kilometer range and is a significant improvement from its predecessor missiles.
“The new missile could reach virtually the entire United States without leaving the heavily defended Yulin Naval Base (itself complete with underground shelters and docks for submarines) in Hainan Island,” Popular Science explains. Unfortunately, that’s not all.

“This vessel’s ability to reach global targets while lurking in heavily defended coastal waters will significantly boost China’s second strike capability (that is, the ability of a nuclear power to launch a retaliatory nuclear attack even after suffering a devastating conventional or nuclear attack),” the website adds.
Boosting its nuclear war prospects, the Jin Type 094A not only has 12 nukes, reportedly known as “big waves,” hidden in its “hump” rear, which are said to have a range of more than 11,000 km and could reach the U.S. without leaving Chinese waters, the sub also has a retractable towed array sonar (TAS), which would make it easier for the craft to “listen” for threats and avoid them.
In short, the Chinese have a new, stealthier submarine that’s capable of easily avoiding threats with a range long enough to attack the United States from Chinese waters. That’s a game changer and could spell big trouble for every single American.
