    China now boosts a beautiful aircraft carrier. Do you think we should be concerned as a nation? Should we applaud them for adding such a wonderful vessel to their research armada?

    What you dont see is the LA/Seawolf/Virgina class sub that the COMSUBPAC probably has following it everywhere it goes.

    china doesnt have a new carrier, they have an old remolded soviet carrier....

    think of it as a yugo with new hubcaps........

    it is also the only carrier they have.......

    Yep, they are researching the joys of maintaining a blue water navy.

    I believe this is number two. I could be wrong. The announcement in July by General Lou Yaun that two aircraft carriers are being built does point to the Chinese expanding military reach. In Feb, 2011 The construction of a concrete deck for training of plane take off and landings is also not something that is associated with Carnival Cruise. I would keep an eye on them. They have proven themselves not to be trusted.

    China is now a very large economy. One which has far more power than it's military does.

    Another point in this age of missiles of all types. In an allout war, a surface fleets has a lifetime measured in fractions of hours. Theirs and ours. Aircraft carriers are fine for enforcing your will on the likes of Iraq and Afghanistan. Sitting ducks for a modern military with cruise and ballastic missiles.

    China clearly has no right to a Navy.

    We must go to war to prevent China from building any more Aircraft Carriers! Only the United States should have carriers!
