Nukes with “Chinese characteristics”

The nuclear weapons division (“the Second Artillery Force”) has the goal of “a lean and effective strategic missile force with Chinese characteristics.” WTF? I’m going to write more later on the sloganeering all over the White Paper. But this one is so good it needs its own entry.

What on earth could it mean? A Chinese soldier strapped to the warhead? Which would make Dr Strangelove’s final shot “nuclear war with Texan characteristics …”

The possibilities for humour are endless
