    The United States are taking the next step to build a global missile defense system. It is about the forced placement of missile defense in Asia and the Far East.
    According to the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal, Washington plans to deploy modern missile defense systems in South Korea. It is a system THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense), which is one of the elements of missile defense of the United States in Asia.
    Moreover, by 2018 the United States intends to expand its fleet of warships equipped with interceptor missiles, up to 36 units, most of which are likely to serve in the Asia-Pacific region.
    Although the main reason for the increase in military capabilities is North Korea's missile program and a number of military experts associated deployment of a missile defense system in the Asia-Pacific region with plans of Washington to contain China.
    United States can not directly tell that the missile defense system is aimed against China, because then they will make their intentions clear and may obtain a conflict. And saying that it is against North Korea, allows them to avoid conflict, because North Korea is isolated internationally and to act against it convenient. "
    Meanwhile, the American missile defense is now a direct and immediate threat to China's nuclear forces.
    Washington is able to perform a disarming strike against China with about 130 ballistic missile submarines. It's more than 500 nuclear warheads. As for the Chinese missiles of short and medium range, for their interception USA has already supplied Japan, South Korea and Taiwan with "Patriot" missile systems as well as "Aegis" that are placed on the United States Navy destroyers.
    At the same time, there is no obvious military threats from China to the United States. The intention of the United States to build a missile defense system in Asia, ie Taiwan, Japan, Philippines - is, above all, the continuation of American policy to contain China.
    Thus, the United States actively creates all the conditions for the expansion of its influence in the Asia-Pacific region both economically and militarily. No doubt that the European and Asian missile defense systems are part of an overall plan of the American leadership, the true objectives of which are global dominance and the pursuit of world hegemony.
