PRESIDENT Xi Jinping has warned China's enemies would "have their heads bashed bloody"- as chilling satellite pictures reveal he is building more than 100 new nuclear missile silos.

His threat – widely seen as directed at the US – came during a grandstanding speech commemorating 100 years of the ruling Chinese Community Party.




The all-powerful leader told crowds that "no one should underestimate the resolve" of the Chinese people , and that Beijing would put an end to "sanctimonious preaching" – another veiled dig at Washington.

The comment comes as China comes under fire over alleged human rights abuses against the Uyghur community in the country's far western province of Xinjiang, its heavy-handed crackdown of dissidents in Hong Kong and bellicose language on Taiwan.

The breakaway island is a major source of tension between Beijing and Washington.

China says it is a breakaway province while the US says the democratic territory should be allowed to govern itself independently of Beijing, and provided it with weapons to defend itself against a invasion by CPC forces.

In his Thursday speech, Xi said China had an "unshakeable commitment" to unifying with Taiwan.

"No one should underestimate the resolve, the will and ability of the Chinese people to defend their national sovereignty and territorial integrity," he said.

In Xi's hour-long speech, he warned that attempts to overthrow the party would "fail".

"Only socialism can save China, and only socialism with Chinese characteristics can develop China," he said.

"We will never allow anyone to bully, oppress or subjugate China.

"Anyone who dares try to do that will have their heads bashed bloody against the Great Wall of Steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people."

China has repeatedly accused the US of trying to curb its influence in the region.

This comes as worrying intelligence shows China is rapidly expanding its nuclear missile silos.



The Washington Post reported Beijing is building up to 100 additional missile silos in the country's north western Gansu province, covering a whopping 700-square-mile radius.

These silos can hold China's newest nuclear-armed missile, the DF-41.

Reports also say underground bunkers are being built to function as launch centres, with trenches carrying cables to 10 different silo launchers.

Not every one of these new silos is expected to house missiles.

North Korean despot Kim Jong Un backed Xi's remark in a letter to Chinese leader in which he claim the West didn't not stand a chance militarily against communist China.

He said the West's "vicious slander" was "no more than a last-ditch attempt" to heap pressure on the CPC, NK news reports.

"They can never check the ongoing advance of the Chinese people, rallied close around General Secretary Xi Jinping, toward a fresh victory," he wrote.

China is building up a terrifying arsenal of weapons including hypersonic missiles that travel so fast they are impossible to stop.

The DF-17 can perform “extreme manoeuvers” as it hurtles at Mach 10 – some 7,600mph – towards a target, with carrier unlikely to survive a direct hit.

Their sophisticated sensors, guidance systems and innovative propulsion methods have been compared to building the atomic bomb.

Beijing warned it would launch a missile strike on Australia if it came to the aid of Taiwan in the event of a war.

The threat comes after Australian Prime Minister Scott warned that his country would be “foolish” not to recognise the danger of war with China over the disputed island.

Hu Xijin, editor of Chinese state mouthpiece the Global Times, tweeted threats sabre rattling towards Australia.

“Preparing for war? Then build an antimissile system!” he wrote.



“I believe once Australian troops come to Taiwan Strait to combat against the People’s Liberation Army, there is a high probability that Chinese missiles will fly toward military bases and key relevant facilities on Australian soil in retaliation."

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP)was founded in 1921 and came to power 72 years ago after a long civil war.

The country has undergone massive changes since then – many of which were missing in the day's propaganda drive.
