    China's Hu urges navy to prepare for combat - Yahoo! News

    Again, I have to ask, 'So what?' The Chicoms have been prepping for war since the day they took over China. This is nothing new, but that we see so many reports of this lately, it seems that TPTB are trying to prep *us* mentally for a possible war with China.

    The Chinese preparations are almost alld efensive in nature. Their tiny blue water fleet would be blown out of the water within minutes of going to war with the US and I think they are smart enough to realize this. That fleet is for projecting force into the oil rich South China Sea area, not cutting off our sea lanes.

    If we are to be so worried about a likely war with China, then why does everyone in Washington DC still want to allow the continued export of US industry to China? I am sorry, not just allow but we have tax incentives in place to ENCOURAGE US businesses to relocate off shore, and China being the best place for labor arbitrage it gets most of that off shoring sent its way.

    In other words, the actions of our nations leaders belie any notion that we are plausibly expecting war with China in the foreseable future.

    Its just more 'we are surrounded by enemies' bullshit.

    "Maritime disputes" is code for Taiwan. China sees a weak president that would hand over freedom loving capitalist Taiwan to the Chinese quasi-socialist regime with barely a complaint to the socialist UN.

    I think China could possibly beat the United states as simply as alleying with mexico. Think about it for a second-- we aren't thinking that theres any threat to our south, so we have very little military armor, troops or fire power protecting our southern borders.

    If Hu was smart, he would alley with Mexico, while saying that it's for peaceful proposes,(Hu) could be unloading troops, tanks and the chinese military into Mexico. Of course China would pay and arm Mexico to get mexico to go along, but china is more then rich enough to do just that.

    I'd say 500,000 troops with a few hundred jets for air support to deal with our one strength(air power). I'm thinking before the national guard could mass enough strength to counter the drive(chinese advancement), China could have a third of the country. Our military is made to attack other countries, not so much defend our nation in a land war.

    China would be stupid to try to match our navy while trying to cross the Pacific. This is the only way a nation has a chance vrs the US.

    That is pretty much a Democrat tradition, isnt it? They have turned their backs on so many countries and people that depended on us. Who will they NOT sell down the river?

    Oh, yeah, I guess there are their urban political machines.

    Evaluating the Taiwan/U.S. relationship...
    :eusa_eh:
    What can Taiwan do for the US?
    Sat, Jan 21, 2012 - Two months after the US’ decision in September to provide defensive weapons to Taiwan and upgrade its fleet of F-16A/B aircraft, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a speech in which she said emphatically that Taiwan was an important security and economic partner of the US

    All China has to do to recover Taiwan is go there and take over. obama will do nothing except get on television and give a campaign speech about how safe he's kept the US by not opposing China's predations.

    This post clearly demonstrates you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Having been to both China and Taiwan..the politics are much more complicated then that. And China is in no mood to invade anyway. Especially after Vietnam.

    It is not at all complicated. We have a very weak president who is systematically destroying our defensive and offensive capability. He has already given one of our most sophisticated drones to the Chinese in addition to handing another off to Iran. What's complicated about that?

    If China invaded and took over Taiwan, obama would claim "credit" for Chinese unification.

    The President isn't weak at all. He isn't destroying anything in terms of our defensive and offensive capabilities. The FACT that we haven't had a major terrorist attack by foreign terrorists on our shores is a testament to that. Unlike Bush..who presided over 9/11. And you seem to forget the Chinese got a gift wrapped present from President Bush in the form of a spy plane..complete with crew.

    And to even entertain the notion China would invade..is absurd.
