China's plans for a new aircraft carrier hits western news along with the report in China Daily News.
16 trillion dollars in debt, scalded from losing two recent wars in the middle east, and an alienated
working class.. can the obscenely rich owners and rulers of the west continue to bluff with losing hands?
I know one of China's close allies doesn't think so.

China to build second, larger carrier - report

SHANGHAI, April 24 | Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:10pm EDT

(Reuters) - China will build a second, larger aircraft carrier capable of carrying more fighter jets, the official
Xinhua news service reported late Tuesday, quoting a senior officer with the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy.

The report comes after Chinese officials denied foreign media reports in September 2012 that China was building a
second carrier in Shanghai.

"China will have more than one aircraft carrier ... The next aircraft carrier we need will be larger and carry more
fighters," Xinhua quoted Song Xue, deputy chief of staff of the PLA Navy, as saying at a ceremony with foreign
military attaches.

Song said foreign media reports saying the carrier was being built in Shanghai were still inaccurate but did not
elaborate, according to the report.

China currently has one aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, which was refitted from a Russian-made model. Considered
by military experts to be decades behind U.S. carrier technology, it was originally intended to serve as a floating
casino, but was turned to military use in the runup to a once-in-a-decade power transition in late 2012.

China is also building up other forms of military hardware, including a stealth fighter jet believed to be capable
of landing on a carrier, drone aircraft and nuclear submarines.

China is alone among the original nuclear weapons states to be expanding its nuclear forces, according to a report
by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

Song also said the PLA Navy is building a naval aviation force for the Liaoning, and there will be at least two
aviation regiments on one carrier, including fighters, reconnaissance aircraft, anti-submarine aircraft, electronic
countermeasure (ECM) planes and rotary-wing aircraft, the report said.

Chinese officials have said the Liaoning will be used primarily for training purposes.

if the USA and their allies pull out of Asia., there will be a power vacuum and China will quickly fill the vacuum.

unfortunately, China' s neighbors think that is a disaster.
