    NYT: U.S. alarmed by China military's tone - World news - The New York Times - msnbc.com

    By MICHAEL WINES
    The New York Times


    Many younger officers have known only an anti-American ideology

    "“Why do you sell arms to Taiwan? We don’t sell arms to Hawaii,” said Col. Liu Mingfu, a China National Defense University professor and author of “The China Dream,” a nationalistic call to succeed the United States as the world’s leading power. "

    That part is funny.

    I remeber when we were allies. United 1st against Japan then against Russia.

    This is what happens when the government runs schools, it can teach the people what it wants them to, to get them to think the way they want.

    *sigh*

    Currently we are far more advanced, they know it and won't actually try anything until they think they can do something with the numbers they have. As is, against thier standing military, we would have the advantage.

    Pray these people get some sense. :eusa_pray:

    Cute.

    My knowledge comes from 9 1/2 years in the Navy.

    In the mid 90's, JANES, barely mentioned the Chinese Navy.

    Since then we have both advanced, but they have yet to build an aircraft carrier. That alone puts them way behind.

    Class dismissed. :eusa_hand::lol:

    They get pissed b/c we can spy on them. The reason they are pissed isn't b/c we spy, it's b/c they can't.

    When a plane, that they think is spying, comes near them, they send jets to harass them. that's how that chinese pilot got himself killed, he wondered to close, hit a much larger plane, and lost control.

    And out subs are so far out in the lead, it's hardly worth thinking about.

    Alan Boyle writes:Space-watchers say China is still doing whatever it started doing last month with two close-flying satellites in orbit. And that's keeping outside observers worried about the fact that Chinese officials have not yet actually said what it is they're doing.

    The maneuvers, which appear to involve rendezvous operations between the SJ-06F satellite and the more recently launched SJ-12 craft, could amount to practice for space station dockings or coordinated satellite observations from orbit. Few folks would have a problem with that. But they also could be aimed at developing the expertise for lurking near someone else's satellite and eavesdropping, or even knocking that satellite out of commission in the event of a crisis. That's the worrisome part.

    Cosmic Log - China continues satellite maneuvers

    From 2001 to 2008, Republicans have done everything they can to build up China's economy. Sending millions of jobs there are giving subsidies and tax breaks to companies who build in China and teach the Chinese our technology.

    Electronics is electronics. The building blocks are the same. It's how you use what you've learned, or in this case, what the Chinese have been taught by us, that is dangerous.
