The US has a history of “invasion, occupation and destruction” throughout the world, Dennis Etler says.

The United States is seeking to dismember China because it has a history of invasion throughout the world, an American researcher in California says.

"The US has invaded countries throughout the world, in its own backyard, in Latin America and particularly around the periphery of China," said Dennis Etler, a professor of Anthropology at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California.

"Two wars have been fought on China's borders (by the US) within the last half century," Etler told Press TV on Wednesday.

"China has a history of course over the last 150 years of invasion, occupation and destruction by forces both East and West, of course there's European colonialism and Japanese imperialism as well as US imperialism have wreaked havoc on China," Etler added.

China has a right to defend itself from US "imperialism" which still has a desire to dismember China, similar to what it did with the former Soviet Union, former Yugoslavia, Iraq and other nations, Etler stated.

A new report has revealed that the Chinese Navy is preparing for a possible enemy attack, arming its submarines with nuclear missiles that could reach the United States.

Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday that the Asian superpower is "cloaking its arsenal with the invisibility needed to retaliate in the event of an enemy strike."

China has also been developing advanced anti-ship ballistic missiles that could target US naval forces in the South China Sea.

The US is concerned about the growing military and economic power of China.

Observers believe America's efforts to increase its presence in the Asia-Pacific region is aimed at containing China. Beijing has demanded that Washington stay out of regional disputes.
