In the 80's & 90's the industrialized nations...Europe,the US and Japan...could have,and *should* have...closed their ports to Chinese made goods.Our failure to do so will eventually cause the literal *transformation* of human civilization...and NOT for the better.

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?

...and on six-inch seas, too, and not even at high noon. Now, I’m really worried.

Crap. I thought they'd would lose more than two aircraft and two pilots during quals. Well, such is life...

I might as well. The next one I see will probably be flying over my house.

It was Bush 41 who nominated China for membership in the world trade organization. Once accepted into the WTO, China’s fortunes began to skyrocket!!

Wow. I am truly impressed. They managed to do it only 67 years after the British landed the first jet on a carrier, and almost 101 years after Eugene Ely landed the first aircraft on a ship.

Next, they’ll fly solo across the Atlantic and invent the Pop-Tart.

Surprised no one else has noticed that the takeoff was amazing considering it would have been the first ever conventional jet takeoff from a carrier without a catapult assist.

That was faked as hell.
