Is China going to bomb the USA?
Uncle Sam is having a huge military build up too.
CNN is scaring old ladies again, no, still.
Giving new meaning to Chinese Takeout with Special Delivery to Business Areas.
We fought hard for China in WWII and provided critical support. Our thanks was delivered when Mao took over and declared us their enemy. You just can’t trust snakes.
Let’s put this into perspective. China has ONE, YES ONE, operational Air Craft Carrier.
Any current/recent military guys here? Do our armed forces have exercises that simulate attacking China? We probably should be.
@Bad_Brad – Yep, one. And it’s got no catapult, rather it uses that funny-looking ski jump system. That means no heavy aircraft take-offs. It also has limited radar and aircraft control systems and has to rely on land-based AWACS-like planes to coordinate activities. In other words, yeah, it is an aircraft carrier, BUT…
@RickeyG – I’ve heard for years that the Pentagon has plans for attacking/invading ANYBODY and EVERYBODY, ’cause you never know…
They picked it up at a Soviet Garage Sale. The VIN number says it was built in 1964.
whatever they might do, thy’d have to do it very fast and intensely.
They can’t provide their own food or energy needs beyond a 90 day window, should they become isolated.
I’m more concerned with google and apple becoming so close to them. The people of china are already blinded to world events, much like NK, and they want to tighten the information noose further. They’d like to bring that noose here, too.
Nixon “opening up” China was a truly stupid idea.
How many rickshaws does one aircraft carrier handle?
A 1000% tariff on all Chinese imports to the US will turn that boat around. But oh noes trade war!
The only reason China works right now is all the western support. Cut that off and the entire system falls back to 1950’s communist misery within four years.
Think about it. The genius central planners built multiple “ghost cities” in barren regions using all that money they got selling their crap to us, anticipating we would keep buying more and more. They didn’t let organic, capitalistic driven growth build their economy – they faked it. The people of China still can’t afford the stuff they make for us. If the western gravy train is cut off the financial support for that upside-down economy dries up and it collapses like a house of cards.
I’d be willing to bet that any of us who served in the Navy back in the 60’s and 70’s and made a WestPac tour to SE Asia at one time or another came into contact or saw some of these Chinese islands like the Sprattley’s etc., especially when in transit in the South Chinese Sea between Vietnam and the Philippines. And now the Chicoms want to fight us over these contested international waters so they can have full possession of Asia and the Pacific Ocean. I don’t think it will work any more than it did for the Japs in World war 2 especially if the US Navy and Marines have anything to say about it. These are international waters vital for sea transportation of all goods and services coming from SE Asia, Australia, the Philippines, Japan, Korea, Taiwan etc. and will not be allowed to be taken over by the Chicoms for their benefit to the detriment of the rest of the Western world like the US and Europe. God forbid if we have to fight once again in this part of the world but we will if forced to protect freedom of the seas. And our Navy and Marines are far better than theirs, hopefully.
And WE paid for whatever capability they have with our trade deficits. They stole almost all of the technology.
Every major power has contingency plans to fight any other major power, if they’re smart – even their allies of the moment. Ever hear of War Plan Red?
Is their Aircraft Carrier named after Bill or Hillary?
So what does the United States military have concerning Asia and the Pacific in our playbook?
China’s history is littered with despots traitors and scoundrels now isn’t any different.
