- Beijing Promotes Idea of War With US as Relations Deteriorate, Amps up Anti-US Propaganda

Authorities in Beijing recently posted air raid posters on the streets, while one hawkish state-run media urged the Chinese regime to develop more nuclear missiles to target the United States. The war-mongering atmosphere comes amid escalating tensions between the world’s two most powerful countries, with both sides clashing on issues ranging from the South China Sea, Hong Kong’s protests, to Beijing’s pandemic coverup.
The last time air raid posters appeared in China was almost a half century ago during the late 1960s, when anti-American sentiment ran high amid the Cultural Revolution’s political propaganda. On July 25, workers were captured on video installing new posters in Haidian district, Beijing. The capital is home to roughly 21.54 million residents.
The posters contained information on how to protect themselves during air raids, including how to find and enter a dugout shelter. “The government delivered this information and we are very nervous,” Beijing resident Mr. Wu told Radio Free Asia on July 27.
