China: US Is ‘Destroyer Of World Peace’

A spokesman for China’s defense ministry said on Sunday that the U.S. is the “destroyer of world peace” while criticizing a Pentagon report on Beijing’s military goals.

The Associated Press reported that Col. Wu Qian called the Department of Defense report released earlier this month a “wanton distortion” of his nation’s intentions.

“Many years of evidence shows that it is the U.S. that is the fomenter of regional unrest, the violator of the international order and the destroyer of world peace,” he said, noting U.S. actions in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other countries, according to the news service.
