China cannot even build a high speed train...
What make you make such a irresponsible statement? She has the most mileage in the field of any country in the world and many of the trains are built, even designed by Chinese companies. Is it because of the accidents? If so, if you compare things mile per mile, it is no different from the accident which had occured in other countries train wise.
what sort of jingoistic debate is being purported?
you are not only in disagreement with my perception of things. you are bitter about what i said. that is understandable of course. but, the truth is the truth. catching up with the west who has a good 200 years lead on the Chinese is going to be mighty difficult if not impossible. hence technology like the J-20, which based on itscontour and configuration is darth vader stuff. then theres the df-21d, how in the hell are you going to stop something that terminates at you @mach-12? yes, mach-12 just to mention 2 things that we know for a fact.
Catch or will never happen and counter US might will never happen too.......
god knows that the mighty ussr had tried and all they can do is use numerical advamtage as a leverage. it failed because of the reagan administration's strategy -- bluff -- starwars that is -- which is all a game of russian roulette with blanks in revolver.
Example? Old Ex Soviet ship was just revived as challenge to US sea might....
Until they put up an invitation for the military brasses of other countries to have a first eye look at it, i would not make such an western media pumped sorry assed assumption. you and i don't know what's in it. words in the chinese street however is that it's appointed with the latest of appointments -- deadly that is.
also, one don't built a warship simply for the joy of owning one. in times of peace, yes, the chinese will stick by what they say and use it as a training vessel. but, my hypothesis is that more than just a training vessel, covertly, it will double as a vessel for r&d purposes and that it will be assigned as part of the south china sea fleet and that will enter combat if hostility breaks. it might be an old hunk when the soviets gave it to us, but after more than ten years at it, it's a totally different boat altogether.
technological warfare? I am not going to cheapen debate by citing all US software companies
drones? smart bombs? satellite guided munitions? emp? laser technology? space as the next frontier? the chinese are not stupid you know.
China cannot counter nor render other's military capabilities obsolete.....
she will have to make break "the technological monopolistic strangle hold of death strategy that the west have on her otherwise no way in hell is she going to match the american military machinery dollar for dollar. doing so will mean that china is following in the footsteps of the old ussr and eventualyl meet the same fate. centering on technology that neutralizes your opponents technology is the only way to survive for china. her scientists and engineers can muster that technology and the country can budget it into its expenditures.
Military planners observed the unwawareness of the chopper thatw as used to fade Bin Laden.
You must be of the school which says we chinese steal, reverse engineered, copied, bought, the west's technology. well... burying your head in the sand ain't gonna reverse the course of how things are with the chinese. they've been pushed, by circumstances beyond their comprehension and that forced them into bring the best out of them and that is what you are seeing today -- the best of china with more surprises in the pipeline to come.
