China’s DF-21D Missile can Take Our Aircraft Carriers
Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered a message of peace during a massive military parade along Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. In the midst of this message, which included a pledge to reduce the size of the military by 300,000 troops, the People’s Liberation Army unveiled the DF-21D, a missile that is being called the “carrier killer” and the “trump card” by the largest military in the world.
It couldn’t be any more clearly stated that it is directed squarely at the United States. Of the 26 known active or reserve aircraft carriers in the world, the United States has twelve with three under construction. China has one with one under construction. Japan is the only other country with more than two. They have three.

It may have been a WWII parade, but it is clearly a way of warning the world about their capabilities if there’s a WWIII.
