Sub air craft carriers are good. But China doesn't need them either really.

Those sub orbital hypersonic missiles China is developing sound like just the ticket for quickly sinking US aircraft carriers.
China could produce dozens (or maybe hundreds) of these for the cost of one giant aircraft carrier.
Only one has to get through the aircraft carrier's defenses.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

China needs a lot of cargo sub's too to move troops when they invade USA. China must build these underground in secret.

What you proposed is nothing new.
Carriers versus Subs , which one is more important?
During cold war, Soviet chose subs, and neglected carriers.
Look at Russia today, it has no viable carriers to use.

The Soviets were too cowardly to go to war with USA weren't they? I don't even know what you are saying. Aircraft carriers are obsolete - unless they are sub's.

Sorry, Rob. This one I'll have to bow out. Yes, in an age DF-21D's, DF-17's, air, land and sea launch antiship systems, deadly MOAB style mines at sea what not, I agree that carrier is of no useful purpose if in an all out conflict as battle of midway but, if air power projection far from home is necessary, i.e., as in the case of the naval exercise conducted by the USN and its sidekicks off of the coast of DPRK, or if we need to go in and protect our shipping lanes from "International state sponsored piracy", to make the Indian Ocean a perimeter of our western defense, then carrier groups, or 21st century Zhanghe armadas I call it, 『if a force to be reckon with』, does stand out amongst the crowd and dies make plenty sense.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
