The People's Liberation Army's H-6K strategic bomber can attack the Japanese mainland with CJ-10 cruise missiles without even leaving Chinese airspace, reports the Kanwa Defense Review run by Andrei Chang also known as Pinkov, a military analyst based in Canada.
China had no real nuclear projection capability until H-6K entered service with the PLA Air Force, Kanwa's report said. H-6K bombers have already been deployed with the 8th and 10th air divisions of the PLA Air Force. However, strategic bombers alone can not help China penetrate enemy defenses using surface-to-air missiles. For this reason, the long-range cruise missile has become a crucial part of China's nuclear arsenal.
With a range of between 1,500 and 2,000 kilometers, the CJ-10 meets the requirements of the PLA Air Force to possess the capability to launch strategic missile attacks against US military facilities and those of its allies in the Western Pacific. All major cities in India are also within range if the H-6K launches the missile from Tibet.
In a potential war against Southeast Asian neighbors over territories in the South China Sea, the CJ-10 could be launched directly against Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines from the airspace of China's southern island province of Hainan.

Not to worry — the present administration has your back. (/s)
And to the Chicoms: it is not a good idea to provoke the Japanese into going nuclear. Trust me on this one.
We need to be clear to China and more so to the people of China -
The problem is not about Chinese “rights” as a nation, its about the lack of “rights” of the Chinese people and how that arises from a form of politics on the part of the rulers, which makes for a form of politics rejected by most of China’s neighbors and makes for an attitude of China’s rulers which is not modern but ancient and harks back to Chinese imperial rulers, who thought they could dictate terms to their neighbors. Those emperors may have gotten away with it, but this is a different era and the new emperors - that’s what the present dicatatorship amounts to - will not.
We can do the same thing with out Intercontinental ballistic Nuclear Armed missiles that Obama wants to close down.
We have had this ability for at least 40 years.
