China Building Military at Pace Last Seen in 1930s Germany
Chinese warships trained weapons on Japan's SDF aircraft: Pentagon
The USA under Clinton helped greatly. Go ahead, dumbasses put Hillary back in.
I am just wondering. Is there any country out there that could invade us. like tomorrow could china just decide to invade the United States of America?
Is there anywhere I can go on the internet to see a listing of the power of each country. I would like to know how many transport ships China has. Does china have a carrier.
Its just that I always here on the news about how a country is just now starting to develop a technology that we americans have had for years.
Keep shopping at wal-mart folks, China needs the money.
Also, let's not forget that augmented capabilites or not, China isn't ready to take on the USN.
This is a very serious statement from a high government official.
Considering how often the word "surprising" is applied by the analysts who study Red China's military progress, well, I wouldn't expect anything except sharp revisions downward on those time scales.
I think that we should cease all normal trade relations with the PRC. I don't know how much effect that will have at this late juncture, but I believe that we are still the largest source of their profits. It's foolish of us to continue to build up the world's largest totalitarian state.
More on yesterday's discussion.
This is not very good news..
Being currently assigned to Okinawa, I'm very aware of China's missile threat. All of us on the island are under the gun, so to speak.
And couple with this: About 10 years ago, didn't the PRC complain when we proposed to give/sell AEGIS-equipped ships to Taiwan because the enhanced ability to detect the PLA's increasingly aggressive activities was seen as 'provocative'? Didn't Clinton cave on this?
This is bad news, just today morning I read in the newspaper Pakistan is buying 4 Chinese F22 frigates. China is building its navy along with that of its allies in the Indian Ocean in a big way. They are preparing for a showdown while US is caught up in Iraq and Afghanistan.
