I have no idea if the pictures actually indicate a submarine base or not. However, several of the items in the article are BS. First, supposedly the Daily Telegraph is quoted saying that the” Defense Department says that by 2010 they will have five operational 094 submarines”. Navies name their ship classes according to many different specifics. For instance, we classify our submarines by improvements on the last or changes or other factors. Seeing, as China presently does not have any known nuclear missile submarines, how does our Defense Department know that this is the 094 class?

Next, Steven Yates in quoted as saying “It really is a point of force projection out into the South China Sea, and the South China Sea is a very, very important waterway critical to energy security,” said Yates. Nuclear missile submarines are not developed or launched to operate or cover local ocean real estate. Nuclear missile submarines are global weapons. Ballistic missiles are for global launches. Anything in local waters are handled by missiles that the fast attacks can carry.

What does the fact that Gates was not told why the Chinese military budget has increased have to do with a secret nuclear missile submarine base. All you have to is look at Jane’s intelligence review to see that they are building up on all aspects.

Again, I have no information one way or the other about a secret submarine base. However, this is just another piece of information manipulation by the media.

Shhhh!!! Don't tell anyone else about the secret base. If this gets to the media than it won't be a secret anymore.

Whatever the Chinese have, be it nuclear subs, missiles or antimissile technology we can thank the Clinton administration for giving it to them in exchange for campaign funds. Yet another reason why Hitlery should be taken out. We can't let that corrupt group back in, no matter the cost.
