They may be able to now fight a WWII type of war..
BUT under water(submarine) drones.. could put a kink in their plans..

While searching for F22 sorties.. they may get a surprise they didnt expect..
not overlooking limpet(style) drones invading their harbors..
Probably the chinese carriers are just PR programs.. anyway..

Only 90 years after the West did it. Or 101, depending on how you define “aircraft carrier.”

"China's military ambitions are now aided by the landing of its first fighter jet on an aircraft carrier."

I don't see what the fuss is about, if China just now landed its first fighter jet on an aircraft carrier. Their first fighter jet would have been back about the time of the Korean War. I will start worrying when they land some of their more recent models.

No catapult? Looks like an oversized British jumpjet carrier.

Just wondering how many aircraft we have landed on carriers in say the last 24 hours.

OK, China's best pilot succeeded in landing a jet on an aircraft carrier once in a row.

That makes them only, what, 50-60 years behind in conventional military capability now?

It will be tough to project power when you have to keep moving around the one Chinese pilot who has landed on a carrier to use his skills.

I read something about the Chinese carrier some time ago that suggested it was a stripped down Kiev?—class Russian Carrier. However, I do not remember precisely.

It was merely a frivolous sound bite.

Considering the amount of damage a couple of goat herders did with nothing but scrap metal and unexploded ordinance, I would not dismiss a country with more military age fighting men than our entire population. Our main advantage has been technology. Watching that advantage evaporate in real time should be disconcerting.

I am currently in a Master's Degree program for Computer Science. About 1/3 of my class is Chinese. Not 2nd and 3rd generation Chinese Americans, I mean off the boat, completed their bachelor's degrees in China. They're perfectly friendly, bright and decent students, but that does not diminish the threat that China's rapidly increasing technological capability poses to our future. Our last remaining advantage is that our communists in power will not want to cede authority to their communists in power.

Right. The Obamination has too big an ego. He'll cede authority to his wife or daughter on his deathbed.

The American People are Corrupt.. whom elect corrupt officials to govern them..

ELSE; they would change them....... they don’t... and have no intention to..
any thats NOT corrupt may be hunted down soon and dealt with..

It always happens.. when corruption becomes “normal”..
The 2012 republican primary’s have far reaching recriminations..
ALL conservative candidates were (AND are) REJECTED...

Simply amazing how stupid most republicans are playing the GLAD GAme.. i.e. PollyAnna..

“China’s military ambitions are now aided by the landing of its first fighter jet on an aircraft carrier.”

And the other 99 pilots who tried landed below the waterline.

The PLAN will find the world of carrier aviation has a very steep and deadly learning curve. Chinese pilots will come to know the sheer terror of a night carrier landing in combat conditions on a pitching deck. This is the one evolution that scares our Naval Aviators the most — as it should.
