China wants to develop all the capabilities that REFLECT it's status as a BIG POWER!

For survival sakes and, as experience has taught us well: we need to chart our own course in the long cut throat dog eat dog world of life and that means a well armed Navy and a well armed Naval Air Arm whatever the cost and regardless of its underlying effectiveness.

Beijing better not be docile lamb it is and fall for proposed trickery of reducing nukes down to a mere 311 each being worked out between Russia and America, a strategy my opinion are designed to keep us from adding to our arsenal which they speculate are approximately around this number but fall far short of what china truly have if based on my deductive logic of what China's needs should be.


Yes, we've learnt our lesson well: no more eight nation military coalitions gang banging of the Chinese nation as has in the past; no more opium shoved down our throats by threats of gunboat policies; no more signage which say no dogs and Chinese allowed anywhere in the world; and, no more likes such as that of Mr. Interesting who harbors this macho-Douglas-McArthur like state of mentality with threats of nuking Chinese cities if we ever cross the Yalu River and no more Hiroshimas and Nagasakis anywhere in the East Asian continent...  

Simply put: it's our own ass and we ourselves are responsible for it and that means ASATs, ABM's, 094's/096's and 098's, space based technologies, the works, if that's what it takes to ensure its well being...
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?

Matt,

Actually, the carrier is more of a liability for China than the US. China is unlikely to do any significant damage to a US fleet but the US will sink the carrier, causing the government to lose a lot of face.

It's basically the World War I naval issue: the capital ships would never meet because losing one would be too costly, they were basically just to make using anything less than a capital ship a non-starter. But in the case of China v. the US, the US will deploy the capital ships anyhow and has overwhelming technical and numerical superiority on the seas. Plus, in order for the carrier to operate effectively, it would need to be positioned well east of TWN. That, however, means transferring the fleet with it and away from the beachhead operations in the Strait.

It's a recipe for defeat.

USA needs the CAPITAL ships - or battle group to maintain it's global influence!

China needs it only to give assurance to it's friends and allies of it's capability to help!
I doubt China will attempt to confront a US battlegroup in open sea, especially in today's technology.....

ha ha ha

The 5 star kongfu is really exciting - we are achieving GLOBAL BALANCE and negotiating issues instead of fighting!
