China conducts more high altitude armor tests.

The PLL-09 122-mm self-propelled howitzer system fires at a simulated target during the live-fire training conducted by a mechanized infantry regiment under the PLA Western Theater Command in the Pamir mountains in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Sept. 9, 2016. The training aims to test the performance of the PLL-09 in plateau environment. ( Wang Ning)

I just thought this was about a territorial dispute with India but I'm starting to give the talk of China prepping for a "new silk road" more credit.  It sounds like a tin foil hat conspiracy theory but they seem to be orienting more and more of their forces to defend it.

The crazy thing?

If the silk road is completed and with the number of countries involved, many unfriendly to the US, then we will be unable to cut China off economically with our Navy.  One of our biggest trump cards goes away before the war even starts.
