BEIJING (TheBlaze/AP) Just as it has had many firsts recently with its space program efforts, China has successfully completed another first for its naval aspirations. The country landed its first fighter jet on its first aircraft carrier, which entered service two months ago, the countrys official news agency confirmed Sunday

Meanwhile people eat aborted-human-fetus burgers in restaurants in China.
Looking at some of the comments, it seems there are a lot of people in this country that still think of the Chinese Military as a backward and behind-the-times entity.
They couldn’t be farther from the truth. While they survived for years taking delivery of Russian systems, they have been steadily working out how to copy, produce and improve them. Their incursions into our universities, our government and other commercially oriented technology in compters and solid state electronic devices haven’t been wasted.
They have very capable fighters that will outnumber ours significantly, they have Carrier Killer Ballistic Missile Systems (google it) that can make that multi-billion dollar US carrier group impotent.
Add this to a conventional military force that vastly outnumbers ours in soldiers and equipment and you have a real potential for getting our ass kicked, Obama’s probably surrender notwithstanding.
Do any of these bravado hawks out there oblivious to the facts think that Shengzen has ONLY been cranking out iPods, iPads, and iPhones?
Odd how that plane looks almost identical to an F-14 Tomcat. Did they buy one used from one of our so-called allies, steal the blueprints via their usual, daily technology theft or did obamao just given them one because he likes them and he wants them to continue to buy our debt?
If they kill us, who’s going to buy all their junk?
Theft, I’d bet. Look at their new predator, their newest fighter, everything else. Looks just like ours!
F14s date to the 1970s. US Navy replaced them 5-6 years ago.
Iran had them before the Islamic Revolution. Still uses them, AFAIK!
Don’t forget India as a counterweight to China. We may be somewhat oblivious to China. India isn’t.
That’s a copy of a Russian bird, IMO.
Actually, it is a direct copy of the Russian Su-33, and the Russkis are none too happy about it...
They are a VERY hard working and dedicated people and they have more gifted students than we have students.
We lost our last advantage (self government) in the last election.
Our only hope is that our machines are better than their machines...
Maybe we ca submit a request to the Chinese to liberate us from our current more coommunist than them oppressors? We can give them Kalifornia as payment!
You’ve been watching too much chinese propaganda.
...and on six-inch seas, too, and not even at high noon. Now, I’m really worried.
I might as well. The next one I see will probably be flying over my house.
