Read this article today on
the extinction protocol
website and found it interesting not least in light of how the west is seemingly in crisis and the divide between people
and governments widen. Meanwhile in the East consolidation seems to be happening. As we bail out Bankers, and let the middle classes flounder, the
Chinese are pumping money into infrastructure to protect its people.

January 13, 2013 – CHINA - China recently upgraded its subway system in Beijing and revealed that its mass transit was hardened to withstand nuclear
blasts or chemical gas attacks in a future war, state-run media reported last month. The disclosure of the military aspects of the underground rail
system followed completion and opening of a new subway line in the Chinese capital Dec. 30, along with the extension of several other lines. The
subway upgrade is part of an effort to ease gridlocked traffic in the city of 20 million people. According to Chinese civil defense officials quoted
Dec. 5 in the Global Times, a newspaper published by the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee, the subway can “withstand a nuclear or poison
gas attack.” A U.S. official said the disclosure of the subway’s capabilities to withstand attack is unusual, since it highlights Beijing’s
strategic nuclear modernization program, something normally kept secret from state-controlled media.
It seems that China and Russia are apparently strengthening their infrastructure and building shelters under their cities to accommodate and protect
their people and not just a select few (although they get first dibs obviously) While people are bickering divide and conquer seems to prevail in the
west, compounded by economic instability, some not so secret preparations are underway in the East. Not only infrastructure but the populations are
being normalized to expect that a major war is a distinct possibility.
The sabre rattling of Beijing and Japan has been discussed in this thread www.abovetopsecret.com...
and many see
a conflict with Japan over the sovereignty of uninhabited islands in the South China Sea as a potential flashpoint, and considering various treaties
could drag other nations into the conflict.
The concerted effort to bolster weapons arsenals while not unusual in itself is interesting.
China is building new long-range mobile missiles, including the DF-41, and plans to deploy up to eight new ballistic missile submarines. Reports from
Asia indicate the Chinese military is also planning to build new long-range strategic nuclear bombers. Russia too is expanding its nuclear forces with
new submarines and missiles. Moscow announced last year that it is also constructing some 5,000 underground bomb shelters in Russia’s capital in
anticipation of a possible future nuclear conflict.
Should the west be concerned?
By contrast, the U.S. government has done little to bolster civil defense measures, preferring the largely outdated concept of mutual assured
destruction that leaves populations vulnerable to attack and building only limited missile defenses that the Obama administration has said are not
designed to counter Chinese or Russian nuclear strikes. The Obama administration instead is seeking deep cuts in U.S. nuclear forces as part of
President Barack Obama’s policy of seeking the elimination of all nuclear arms.
Maybe it is simply a subway upgrade what with Beijing's ever increasing growth in car ownership and they decided to build it to extreme defensive
specifications. It's unusual for such information to be made so public by the usually secretive ruling PTB.
All I know is that if my neighbour starts sandbagging and fortifying his house, maybe I should look into it too.
Are they subways that double as bomb shelters, or bomb shelters that double as subways?
