Congrats to China. Steaming ahead with expansion not long after their Space Station. Innovate and improve a nations global influence and capabilities, I always give credit where it's due.

All we have in Canada is casinos, cops and inflation. Our best and brightest leave and our least impressive milk the system for them and their kids.

Who do you think is best positioned to succeed globally?


SHANGHAI, June 17 (Xinhua) -- China launched its third aircraft carrier, the Fujian, in Shanghai on Friday. The carrier, named after Fujian Province, was completely designed and built by China.

The new carrier was put into the water at a launch ceremony that started at about 11 a.m.

Xu Qiliang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), presented a naming certificate to the navy unit receiving the carrier.

Approved by the CMC, the Fujian was given the hull number 18.

It is China's first domestically-made carrier that uses catapults. With a full-load displacement of more than 80,000 tonnes, the carrier is equipped with electromagnetic catapults and arresting devices.

The new carrier will conduct mooring tests and sea trials as scheduled.

China may have launched an aircraft carrier, on their way to dominating the world, but I hear WallMart recently got a new shipment of baby formula so everyone rush to get some before it is gone forever!!

So who is laughing now?

Biden 2024!!!

This gives China three aircraft carriers and the first that is probably roughly equivalent to U.S. supercarriers.

While this might seem to pale next to the 11 U.S. carriers, the U.S. Navy has to cover ocean in not only the Western Pacific but the Atlantic & Indian Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea..

This is the same nation that currently houses a few million Uyghurs in concentration camps.

"Our country, under the leadership of the Communist Party, has launched the third aircraft carrier" —
"Fujian"
The ceremony was held at the shipyards in Shanghai... The displacement of the newest aircraft carrier is more than 80 thousand tons, it is equipped with the most modern technology that has no analogues in the capitalist world....
in short,
I will say this -
every day I am more and more convinced - words are not thrown to the wind here - and if the CCP declares that Communism will be built, then so it will be!.... a unique society.. Marx would have been pleased .. even the successes of the transition phase.
My dear friends from the countries of the capitalist world!
Look around, your life is consumer petty joys, it's boring
Don't waste any time!
Take an example from China!
WE are Humanity! We must strive FORWARD! TO PROGRESS.. and you are happy with something small.. You can't live like this

China owns quite a bit of Canadian commerce already.
So you are already on your way to becoming Chinese.

We have a 14 Carrier fleet ?

11. We have many amphibs that carry aircraft now though. Many being the same size as the old Lexington class Aircraft carriers. I was on the Wasp. We carried AV8s back then. Plus Apache helo's.

The amphibs are needed for other obvious purposes
