Satellite imagery shared exclusively with NPR shows a possible new tunnel being dug and fresh roads added at the site, known as Lop Nur, where China has tested its nuclear weapons in the past.

Built with US dollars donated by Americans buying cheap Chinese crap made with slave and child labor.

China thanks the US!

Oh please... China has been nuked up for decades now. It's the only thing the US respects.

Besides... some of the "old money families" in the US made their fortunes via the Chinese opium trade... which was one of the things that led to the Chinese revolution and the communist takeover. They have an understandably jaundiced view of capitalism.

The slave labor thing... if that is what it is... all things being relative... is a mixed bag. China is no longer among the "starving nations" of the world.

China needs to be viewed through its own 7,000-year-old lens.

LOL

Noooo, don't be stupid.

The possibility that a nuclear armed country could give the US a black eye, and maybe disrupt US hegemony...

That's a concern.

Not for me, because I think it would be a win in the long run.

I'd be eating popcorn on the sidelines.

Good thing it will pop by itself.

I've made certain that I'm in the "perfectly cooked" frozen pizza region of a major city.

If i survive, I'll have a slice.

Otherwise maybe some poor survivors will have a tasty snack.
