After a countless string of falsehood dangled by American leaders, government agencies, the mainstream media, thinktanks and intellectuals, why are we still debating if a particular American interpretation of China is credible?
Odds are it is false or embellished/exaggerated.
Remember this guy?
He made history becoming the first Cabinet-level official to be sanctioned by China, after passing a genocide determination on China’s treatment of the Uighurs in Xinjiang during his final weeks in office.
Surprisingly, few have spoken up for him, neither blue, nor red.
The State Department has quietly shelved his statement, with its lawyers concluding there was insufficient evidence to make the genocide designation. Antony certainly hasn’t acted on his predecessor’s words, even though the designation remains.
There was also balloon-gate, which was recently absolved by the Joint Chiefs.
“It was a weather balloon we shot down.”
It doesn’t matter how many warheads China has, because Zhou Enlai’s words remain relevant today.
“China has enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world once over”.
And that is enough.
They don’t know what Chinas got, it’s all just speculation. Nobody knows what each country has, they only know what they’ve been told. And what their spy satellites tell them, so no, they aren’t certain at all, they could have 5000 for all they know, I remember years ago when all the news was about the tunnels that the Chinese were building to keep their missiles on the move so they can’t be tracked. I doubt if anything has changed. They probably have got a lot better at hiding them. So I would take anything the pentagon says with a grain of salt.
China today is immune to whatever anti-China propaganda, falsehoods and baseless allegations from the US similar to the scientific facts discovered in Fox News :
All US political leaders be it Democrats or Republicans including its representatives or lawmakers from the House, government officials / administrators in CIA, FBI, Pentagon, etc are well trained in their upbringing in the US to “lie convincingly” be it in international / overseas conferences or public and private address in their own US’s soil constantly blinking and winking their deceiving eyes not only to deceive others in the world but also their own Americans to win presidential election to become POTUS.
Back in the 1990’s when Bill Clinton was in office, (then AM radio host) Rush Limbaugh told his audience to put a sign on their television every time when Bill Clinton made a speech. The sign says “He’s lying”.
Never take Americans literally. They never mean what they say, and when they are not lying or spreading falsehoods, they are attempting to steal from you. It’s a fact of life if you live in the USA.
What can we expect from US lead by hypocrites and liars full of warmongering & killer instinct not just to demonise China in fear of China’s rise but also constantly creating unrests and tensions all over the world that ultimately lead to war far away from US like what happened to Ukraine and Middle East today.
Garbage in garbage out, nothing good nor positive can come out from those dirty political plots against China.

USA over 5000 nukes worry about China over 500 nukes...
Obviously, the United States ask China to catch up, how touching („ಡωಡ„)
Why worry? If you are using atomic bombs, unless you got a defence against radiation fallout, you are wasting your time. Radioactive particle will travel around globe from air current circulation around the globe (like the balloon incident that get carry across the US). I read somewhere previously that detonation of 300 of these devices will be enough for a “nuclear winter” on Earth. The numbers talked about is totally an overkill. Also, years ago, I read the US got rid of H bombs, these are Fusion (Nuclear fusion) Bombs using Atomic (Nuclear fission) as a catalyst. Also prior reading is that these are at least a thousand times more powerful than the ones dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. China have not got rid of the Hydrogen Bomb so it is more than a straight numbers comparison. One positive point, based on China’s defence policy is not to use nuclear weapons as a first strike weapon.
为什么要担心？如果你要使用原子弹，除非你能防御辐射尘降，否则你就是在浪费时间。放射性粒子会随着气流环绕全球（就像气球穿越美国事件一样）。我曾在某处读到过，引爆 300 个这样的装置就足以在地球上形成 "核冬天"。我们讨论这些数字完全是过头了。此外，多年前，我曾读到美国已经淘汰了氢弹，这些氢弹是使用原子弹（核裂变）作为催化剂的聚变（核聚变）炸弹。另外，根据之前的阅读，这些炸弹的威力至少是投在广岛和长崎的炸弹的一千倍。中国尚未拆除氢弹，因此这不仅仅是一个简单的数字比较。一个积极的方面是，中国的国防政策是不使用核武器作为第一攻击武器。

Yes, the number of nuclear warheads China possesses is a national defense secret and will not be disclosed at will.
The data used by the Pentagon should come from the "National Defense White Paper" released by the Chinese government in the 1990s.
The Pentagon claims "China has over 500 nuclear warheads." How can they be so certain about China's nation secret?
They can't… its nothing more than guess work…
But even of its true… so what ??
How many Nuclear Warhead does USA possess ??
So… making a mountain out of a mole hill… or is the Pentagon trying to get more funding from Congress ??
Don’t pay attention to what the US says, it is an excuse for more defense funding. It does not matter if China has over 500 nuclear warheads, no country can win in a nuclear war with the US.
The international community and Pentagon have been requesting and supporting China to build as many the number of nuclear warheads as the US and Russia in order to create a balanced world for world peace, stability, prosperity, national security and the international rules based world order.
