China eyes high-tech army, says U.S. undermines global stability
July 24, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “China outlined plans to build a modern, high-tech army in a national defence plan published Wednesday, as it accused Washington of undermining global strategic stability and warned against Taiwanese independence.
The first comprehensive white paper since 2012 offers insight into the world’s largest army as it scrambles to catch up to America’s formidable firepower as tensions deepen between the two powers.
‘International strategic competition is on the rise,’ the document says, adding that the United States has adjusted its national security and defence strategies and adopted ‘unilateral policies’.
The US ‘has provoked and intensified competition among major countries, significantly increased its defence expenditure, pushed for additional capacity in nuclear, outer space, cyber and missile defence, and undermined global strategic stability’…” (China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: “…I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem].” See the next two reports.)

July 21, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “China demonstrated a new anti-ship ballistic missiles, with nuclear capabilities, last month, the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command chief said.
Adm. Philip Davidson told the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday that six missiles fired into the South China Sea included a new, submarine-launched anti-ship ballistic missile called the JL-3. The tests came after Wei Fenghe, China’s defense minister, offered threatening remarks in June regarding China’s claim of sovereignty over disputed islands in the South China Sea at a Singapore security conference.
Wei’s intimidations, Davidson said, were ‘quite chilling. Not only did [Wei] make it clear that he didn’t think Asia and the Western Pacific was any place for America, he said Asia wasn’t even for Asians. It was for the Chinese.’…”
China defends air patrol with Russia after South Korea, Japan fury
July 24, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “China on Wednesday defended a joint air force exercise with Russia that triggered a furious response from regional US allies South Korea and Japan over a perceived airspace violation.
The incident erupted on Tuesday when a Russian A-50 early warning and control plane violated airspace over the Dokdo islands, Seoul said. The islands are also claimed by Tokyo.
South Korea scrambled fighter jets, which fired nearly 400 warning shots at the alleged intruder.
The Chinese and Russian warplanes ‘strictly abided by the relevant regulations of international law and did not enter the airspace of other countries’, defence ministry spokesman Wu Qian told a news conference in Beijing.
He did not mention an A-50, the Russian plane Seoul said violated its airspace…”
