Not just China. Iran also has this capability. Remember years ago when Britian lost a ship to a silkworm missle during the Falklands war? This technology has been around for a while. China has just taken it a step furthur.

Over here in the UK we're on the brink of finalising another novel way of countering such threats to CBGs - run out of money to pay for maintaining, building, manning, fuelling and equipping any, thus removing the issue from our agenda - perhaps the USA will follow our lead someday?

They can, but they wont.
China is actually not as insane as we would like to think they are...their economy is doing just fine, and they own half of the US anyhow in matters of debt...they want us (the US) to remains strong and stable so we can pay them back one day...
I agree with you totally,maybe China is the least one that want to see the recession of US.

I thought plenty of countries could sink US carriers.. Mainly EU states though so no need to worry about a war there..
But as someone said above.. China only want to play at their weight and as the second biggest nation economy, they need to upgrade their arms.
And to be perfectly frank.. Someone needs to counter the US in the Pacific.. Sorry US people but in all bloody fairness, your governments as of late aren't exactly trustworthy and known for their respect for life..
The earth has the power to destroy cities and has done so many times in the past.

China Can Sink Our Aircraft Carriers...This kind of gets frightening.

Did not Neville Chamberlin think the way you do back in the 1930's??
As I guess you know, Britain is currently attempting to build two new carriers - but with no word that I have heard about providing the type of support group vessels and aircraft to fill it, that would say appear standard for a US CBG deployment, plus they plan to fuel them with...oil?
