However, I thought that I was reading how US and military sources are now saying that they now feel (in light of reassessment of the level of advancement in Chinese military tech - those missiles and the J-20 for example) that the USA can no longer assume it will automatically maintain military superiority in regards it's navy/carrier/overseas theatres...
By the way, did anyone else notice how soon after the mysterious West coast US off-shore missile sighting the US top brass came out saying that they had re-assessed the capability/progress the Chinese had made with the DF-21D ASBM - does anyone else think it could be because they witnessed a test/demo firing of one?
Didn't the US military get quoted as saying something like "We know what it was, it wasn't ours, but we know it isn't posing a direct threat"? - which would fit in with a jointly arranged/expected demo of the system?
