No china probably does have what it takes to shoot down everything in your arsenal. As early as the cold war, a SR-71 crashed around the South China
Sea. Official reason is mechanical malfunction. But, you can speculate on that
Remember a few years ago the US bombed Chinese Embassy in Sarajevo killing 2-3 people. Some people suspect that the reason is that China supplied the
Serbs with some radar which shot down a F-117. BTW, bombing another country's embassy is a act of war and encroachment of sovereignty.
First I'd like to say welcome to the boards sir, enjoy your stay at ATS!
Now for the grind.
First for your evasive insult at the US "No, I have always said that the US navy is bigger than the rest of the world's navies combined. So I am
very aware of this. We are also smart enough to stay close to our coast. "
Why is that smart? You say that like it is common sense? It's not, China might not have much to gain by having their ships leave their coast line but
the US does. We have gained much by having our ships leave the coast lol. What are you talking about?
Second: THE US Vs CHINA deficit.
Yup the US owes China a ton of money. So? Do you wonder why? To start we can't legally have 9 and 10 year olds in the US working for 15 cents a week
with no bathroom breaks. But you can! Hey how about this, what if China had the same standard of living wages as the US? I think if that was the case
we wouldn't buy anything from China. So you are basically making a ton of money by exploiting children. Ok so we don't have to buy your stuff but
it's cheap and we don't ask to many questions as long as it's not happening in our back yard. I don't agree with how that works but I'm at a lack
to find a better way.
Let talk about technology. China is a dishonorable thief when it comes to this issue. They lie cheat and steal for every scrap of other peoples hard
work in the technology field. We have a massive budget in that field (and in military technology) and I think it is more than distasteful for you or
any chinese to flaunt this deficit because if you did not steal the things we work so hard on and for than you would not be in any better shape. So if
you're wondering why some people on the board would have an adversarial attitude toward you these may be some of the reasons.
Third your comment "BTW, bombing another country's embassy is a act of war and encroachment of sovereignty."
Well what do you think supplying the enemy with advanced weapons is called? You do not put better guns in the hand of your friends enemy and expect to
escape all consequences. Remember the US and China are friends, because if we weren't you would have $440billion in bad debt. You think your country
is in bad shape now, see where you are if that came to pass.
Like it or not China is dependent on the US and at that you don't seem very grateful for all that you have gotten from us. Next time you're using a
pirated copy of windows or buy a copied DVD or music CD that the original was made here in the US just think where you would be if it wasn't for us.
So try not to be so arrogant in your statements, China has come a long way but if you forget how you got where you are you might find yourself back
where you were.
Ugly Truth Is Still Truth.
