China set to launch a manned spacecraft: "China is poised to join the United States and Russia as the only global powers capable of launching humans into space, a feat that Western experts say would signal a growing technical and military prowess. ...

"China has been developing space technology purely for peaceful purposes and will never participate in any arms race in outer space," [China's foreign] ministry statement said.

If it truly is for "peaceful" purposes, then why wouldn't they instead use the term describing those purposes such as "research" or something of that ilk. The statement seems to reveal itself to be a fraud.
