China has no bases anywhere.  Ports are ports.  All these nations want to, and need to have ports, more ports.  Can US do without ports?

China's No.1 Concern is still Taiwan

The carriers may not be superb.  But a few out there will make the US and Taiwan think not twice, thrice, but a dozen times.  China's main strategy is still asymmetric.  Why use expensive weapons when you can use cheap ones?  So, ASBM is still the main weapon to hit US aircraft carriers.  China's submarines and carriers just need to hang around the waters.

I say again.  US will not shed blood for Taiwan.  Not that US will lose.  But US has no political will wage war that will be costly in terms of human lives, for something that is not its core interests.  On the other hand, Taiwan is China's core interests, and China will fight to prevent Taiwan's breakaway.

Not true.  China still is in taoguanyianghui mode, and will be for a long time.  Until the whole population is lifted out of poverty, and lifted up to middle-class level.   Also, preserving and cultivating unity will take at least another 50, if not 100 years.

Don't think too much of great power status, if there is not strong internal unity.

you love jump jets don't you, dragon? anyway i don't. at least not for the plaaf or the plan because i think jump jets are slow and clumsy jets which makes for the perfect cannon fodder...

for the plaaf and the plan, high tech, super high mach number super cruising 21st century state of the arts air superiority jet fighters with a distinct stealth features detectable only by chinese technology is the only choice for us and such features are what both the plan and the plaaf is demanding for it's 4th generation (5th generation western standard) equipments...

just recently, even sources from the united states itself are speculating that once the f-35/jsf becomes operational around the world, it indeed may become canon fodders [to some] of the world's more advance jet fighters such as advance versions of the Su-27/30, etc. that are armed with advance bvr aam's and as perfect target drones for some of the world's more advanced sams...

however, international for what international trade as being, as america is gearing itself up to flood the world's defense needs markets with the f-35, beijing is no dummy in this respect as she too is gearing up to unload the long rumored j-14 which rumors has it now are in fact an f-35/jsf counterpart designed especially to flood the international defense needs market and not as something that the plaaf or the plan is aiming...

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?

yes, even TREATED WATER, sewage, electricity grid is not completely built...

and the freight rail network, natural gas, crude oil, refined petroleum pipeline network not yet developed.....

still it needs to understand all the technologies of the BIG POWER in the meantime....
China is a very BIG BABY big power!

already US$5 trillion GNP....
producing some US$1.3 trillion of basic commodity such as steel, electricity, aluminium, copper, crude oil, gas, grain, meat, vegetable and fruits alone....
