How rude!


The US Government will find other nations will respect them more if they lose the "we can have it, but you can't" attitude they have towards other nations.

It gives the impression they are concerned that China may interfere with their plans for world domination.

I can understand a powerful country wanting to project it, thats all good and fine but when it comes to the point of theatening that power then there are problems. Problems only an AGM-84 Harpoon can handle.

it is quite evident (from these forums) that American's don't like to be questioned, criticised and judged.

However, they will happly judge the rest of us (the rest of the world) and question them and criticise them.

having only one carrier, i would use it to study the weakness of such a military weapon.

it makes more sense for China to study how to destroy and neutralize this weapon system, than to go broke competing with the USA.

yesterday a program on the History Chanel said the US Navy has as many ships as the next 17 navies in the world put together.

considering that the UK, Australian, French, German, etc are all part of NATO, it should be why does the US think they need this insane level of military power.

the answer obviously is that our politics are corrupt to the dept of the possible, and that all this naval power is the result of our credit card spending.

a Liberian told me last year that the USA building a military base in his country, now made them a nuclear target.

with our corrupt political system, i see no hope for anyone until the politicians in DC go totally bankrupt.

Same for Australia, Britain and other countries. The only reason the US cares there is their strategic position to launch strikes and intelligence gathering.

I am not fooled that the US has "our" interests at heart, the only people they care about is themselves and are just using everybody else.


Hmmm....and I wonder how much money is pumped into the local economy? The bases are given up for free (like when the Soviets occupied Eastern Europe), they are rented. And it's not cheap.

Yeah I hear that base in Iceland is doing wonders for the Economy.

Really? The entire world loves to critize the US. We are either getting our nose into someone elses business, are we aren't doing enough.

Other countries seem to get a pass on ATS. How many threads do you see on Chinese labor camps?

Really? Do you have any proof it's not doing any good? Do a bit of research on how much the US pays for bases overseas. How much money the dependents dump into the local economy.

The same number of threads I see for FEMA camps.

I am sure there was a few threads on Foxconn..
I am sure there was a few threads on Apple's use of sweat shops.

Is it so bad to be NEUTRAL and peaceful?

I have a question why does America need to have 11, yes 11 active Aircraft carriers 10 of which are Nimitz class and have another 2 brand new aircraft carriers go into construction.


America's defense lines are its coasts. If we were to be invaded, it would be from the coasts. We only have 2 neighbors, Mexico and Canada. So in the case of America (and Britain ofc), it's not only smart to invest hugely in our navy, but suicide if we don't. So us having 11 aircraft carriers is not the issue.

Its a good question. I think China is preparing to invade Taiwan and get the Spratly Islands. With the carrier it will definitely helped them. After all China was doing its best to be secretive about it. Casino ship and so on.

I will say it yet again, China is our enemy, they are Communists, their goal is the overthrow of Western Democracies and they don't care how they achieve it, nor how long it takes to achieve their goals. We should not be engaged with China in any way, instead there should be a bamboo curtain to replace the iron curtain.

Chinese expansionism should be resisted at all costs, production facilities should be removed from China and brought back to the western countries. Even worse most internet security companies have strong Chinese presence, so all that technology you hope is keeping your data safe and sound is compromised, because it's a damned sight easier to break something if you know exactly how it's put together!

Pearl Harbour will look like a small oversight when the Chinese dragon rises in the East and strikes at the heart of what we all hold dear! In 20 years any sort of open forum like this will be a distant memory as we all shuffle about in our Mao suits waving our little red books in the air!

How the hell the US has become so lax with regards to communism I do not understand. They stand for everything the US stands against, yet they can't get close enough!



When are you people gonna start thinking for yourselves. the only reason you think communism is bad, is because you were brought up from a young age to believe that it is evil. Its so sad and just plain BS. Its the people who run the country that are good or bad, not if they are communist or not. Get a grip on reality!

Im from the uk, and what do i think of our government and parties? All they seem to do is disagree with eachother, thats it!! One party says one thing, and the other party will say the Opposite. Im sure this is the same in America, right?

China has no reason to go to war with America. They have America by the balls, so why do they need to go to war with them. And since when has China been interested in war, and show me the evidence that they want the rest of the world to be communist? You are talking crap! Another person who can't gandle the fact that China will be the next super-power. I just hope they do a better job than America!

You owe us so much money, we could have come and repo-ed one of yours, you blathering cauldron of putz, so shut your pie hole and scurry back to one of your fourteen carriers before I call due a couple of trillion.


Genius!

Sorry OP but it needed repeating.

Really? So, you telling me that they are not getting a percentage of the oil in Iraq. You telling me that all the oil companies were already talking about it before iraq was taken over? It seems that America will only invade countries where they will get something out of it. But lets be honest, they left Iraq in a complete mess.

I believe they were going to invade iraq, and i believe they lied about the weapons. I am not the only one to think this. If America are doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, then why do they only seem to help countries with oil?

PS: this is not another “hate America thread” it just strikes me as somewhat hypocritical of America to turn round and question China’s need for one aircraft carrier when America has 11 and another two in the pipe line.


I agree, but you kinda have to look at it as being similar to the UK gun ban. The police have the guns, they "protect you" so why do you need one unless it's for nefarious purposes?

America, the world police, has the carriers, they "protect you", so why do you need one unless it's for nefarious purposes?

But then again, all of this falls in line with the recent shift to make China the new Russia from the 80s.

That is because they have not presented a threat to our nation militarily.


You do realize, if you believe the 19 arab hijackers story, that the United states was not attacked by a military, and if that threat is justification enough to invade basically 3 countries now, then EVERY nation that has citizens that don't like the US, that also has an airport, should be invaded immediately.

also, better get some boots on the ground in Saudi Arabia as most of the hijackers (even some of the ones still alive i believe) are Saudis
