a war with china would be bad
that is crazy
They'll need to be developing a lot more of their own technology instead of buying or stealing everything.
in what? they already out number us. they have proven that they have a decent blue water capability. they are buying advanced aircraft systems from russia. I'd say at this point they are a match.
I've always been told the opposite, that they don't have the capability to transport large forces across the sea. For instance, I was told they don't have the capability to invade and occupy Taiwan properly without it turning into their own Iraq.
Not to mention this little bump in the road.... called PACOM.
we could always just send a few nukes over, like we did last time.
that would suck to be a STG during that exercise when that happened.
Yeah no kidding.
In their defense though, they weren't doing an anti-submarine drill(which if they were and they spotted the chinese sub all kinds of bad shit probably would have gone down). And subs running on electric are hard to pick up at all using only passive sonar. A few pings of active sonar would have lit that Chinese sub up like a Christmas tree though.
So its not like they were unable to find it, they just weren't looking for it.
Still, I am glad I'm not in their shoes.
Put a few carrier fleets in the Formosa Straight and lets see if they'll continue with this shit
No need to get pussy hurt over it. Both China and America know, we are still superior.
Pussyhurt? They are a recurring nuisance striving for media oversight in order to shift the world's view on our dominance
And your point is ??
We spend half of our national budget on the military and china can still pull this shit....................wtf
who knows what their motivation was behind this, but it surely wasn't a coincidence.
My point, is that you didn't have a point and you decided to laugh it off instead of admitting that you had no idea what you were talking about.
This is the 2nd most useless post in this thread.
