Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is Chinese propaganda! But maybe it shouldn't be dismissed out of hand...

So why do you think the CCP state media(where this file is from) get so upset about the US selling more arms than they do? I suppose it is an inferiority complex since outside of missiles no one wants their stuff.

Does that mean you are quite comfortable with the US being the largest supplier of instruments of death, and with some American companies making huge profits from supplying countries with the means to commit mass murder?...

Has the US supplied ICBM tech to third parties?

That's not the point. The point is the US being merchants of death. And China is not a major supplier of weapons to anybody. But you are more interested in propaganda than facts...

In 2019 China was the fourth largest exporter of weapons in the world. 13.6% of what the US sold. So yes China is a major arms exporter. In 2020 its exports were slightly more than half of 2019. But then 2020 was not a good year for arms exports for almost every exporter.

China's weapons exports:
According to SIPRI, from 2016 to 2020, 38 per cent of China’s total arms exports went to Pakistan, 17 per cent to Bangladesh and 8.2 per cent to Algeria. The number of countries China exports to has also increased, from 40 countries during the five year period from 2010 to 2014 to 53 countries from 2015 to 2019.

Since 2011, China has been a leading exporter of armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Before that, only the US, Britain and Israel had armed UAVs.

According to a report by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Texas A&M University, out of the 18 countries that bought armed drones from 2011 to 2019, 11 received their drones from China, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Uzbekistan.

I don't think that peace in the world has been endangered by China's sales of weapons...
