yea like the chips then pres BC sold to them , like he did not know that they could be used for mil use as in a guidance sys for missiles. the link goes on to say
From 1983 to 1989, many high-level defense visits took place between
the U.S. military and the People's Liberation Army (PLA).
Working-level contacts occurred in numerous fields, including
military education and training, logistics, quality assurance,
systems analysis, and military medicine. In June 1984, China became
eligible for Foreign Military Sales, which marked the beginning of
cooperation in the area of military technology. By 1987, four sales
agreements were signed: the $22-million large-caliber artillery
plant modernization program, the $8-million MK-46 Mod 2 torpedo sale,
the $62-million AN/TPQ-37 artillery-locating radar sale, and the
$500-million F-8 interceptor avionics modernization program. There
were also a limited number of commercial sales of defense equipment.
so we give hand with the saying we will be as one then when you have prob we slap face and say no you can't, i will using tanks is not crowed control but then who teaches who how to use them? US or them. the GOA link www.fas.org...
On June 5, 1989, immediately after the massacre of pro-democracy
demonstrators at Tiananmen Square in Beijing, the President imposed
sanctions on China to protest its actions. The U.S. sanctions
targeted the Chinese military by suspending visits between U.S. and
Chinese military leaders and suspending all government-to-government
sales and commercial exports of weapons. The prohibition on military
equipment can be waived by the President if it is important to the
national interest or if he determines that China has made specified
progress on human rights.

Why is it such a "threat" to anyone that they've developed an aircraft carrier, and built it? Seriously...it's not as if the US is the only country that should have one. As per the post in relation to "we'll have to worry about ships instead of missiles!" Um...no. By the time they tried to get it within a striking distance of the US at all, the Pacific Fleet would be well at the welcoming point.
I think this is a fine achievement, now if they can afford to run it, and stock it...that's the next question.
Also, OP: Nice update on developments, keep us posted!edit on 9.8.2011 by Shugo because: (no reason given)
so what is the plan of the PLA(N)?
Concerns over China's new aircraft carrier

Not so impressive and their navy lacks experience, but Beijing’s dreams & intentions cause worry
China’s first aircraft carrier returned to its home base of Dalian yesterday after a debut voyage of five days. The Chinese media describes the jubilation of a crowd at the dockside that, after witnessing the giant vessel emerge from a thick fog three km away, set off firecrackers to welcome home the most keenly watched warship in the resurgent People’s Liberation Army Navy, or PLA(N).

no i think with in 5 years, then maybe the west will wake up and say "oh $hitzs why we laughed and slept China was doing it, being thew real threat not just some talk threat now what do we do?" Let them have Taiwan or go to war simple as that, and or let Korea be one nation. Would china risk using nukes? would not put it past them.
