PS if China's tech is all so crap, why do you all love the iPhone and IPad so much, guess where they are made?
There seems to be a good deal of confusion with regards to the definition of "High-Tech". More often than not people view the latest retail consumer gadgets as such and not understand what real State-Of-The-Art-High-technology is. Although admittedly what most civilians have access to these days such as Thumb-Drives-Flash-drives, Cell phones, IPads-Think-Pads etc etc etc, these devices most often contain more computing power and memory per square inch than existed in the entire planet before the 1970s. Not to mention what we used to get to the moon.
So depending on ones perspective, yes they can be viewed in that manner, However the rule of thumb is that what we as civilians know of and or use that is available to the general public is about 30 to 40 years behind what the various secret Black Budget projects are working on and have already developed.
Keep that in mind!

Silly topics won't save the day. The Russians weren' t drinking vodka when they stopped Hitler' s blitzkrieg cold. They will not be drunk on vodka either when they fire their antiship missiles at you. Their antiship tech is to this day unparalleled and unbeatable.edit on 9-1-2012 by Brasov because: (no reason given)

Whilst I respect most of your comments on here Slayer, quoting your own opinion as proof of something carries no weight at all.
I am fully aware that the tech we have in our hands is far removed for what is available to the military complex, however my comment about the iPhone was in relation to people saying everything made in China is crap and doesn't work, while clearly it does work.
They may not be the best innovators but they are sure able to copy well.
This shift has been in process for 30 years. China exports more than Germany, much of that in the form of good produced in factories on behalf of Western countries. Much of the population is still poor, but labor and material prices are on the rise in China. It makes sense, as domestic growth must compete for the same physical and people resources.
However, they’re also on the rise throughout other parts of Asia, including Indonesia, Vietnam, and Bangladesh. What we now see is the beginning of a shift of economic conditions. For a short period of time, companies could become manufacturing nomads, moving from one country to another in search of low costs. Eventually, however, you run out of new territories.
And the fact the US military has advanced secret weapons does not preclude any other country from having advanced secret weapons does it?
People on here think a war between the US and NATO forces Vs Russia and and China would be a quick automatic victory,
* Georgetown University student spent three years translating secret military documents and blogs
* Focus of research centred on 3,000 miles of underground tunnels dug by Second Artillery Corps
* Investigation launched after 2008 earthquake in Sichuan revealed existence of collapsed tunnels
* Study claims China could have as many as 3,000 nuclear warheads - far more then current estimates of between 80 and 400
China's nuclear arsenal may be many times larger than estimates suggest, a group of students have claimed after three years of painstaking researching through restricted documents.
Led by a former top Pentagon official, the students at Georgetown University, in Washington DC, have scrutinised satellite imagery, translated Chinese military documents and filtered through thousands of online files.
The focus of their extensive research has been the thousands of miles of underground tunnels dug by the Second Artillery Corps to hide China's missile arsenal.
the truth is though it will be long, protracted and very messy, and the losers will be everyone, Americans included, it will mean millions and millions of dead civilians, Americans too
Jul. 31 - The United States will soon allow more high-tech exports to China as part of the issues agreed upon during the recently concluded China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue this week.
“The U.S. pledged to facilitate exports of high-technology products from the U.S. to China,” Vice-Premier Wang Qishan told China Daily adding that the dialogue was a “full success.”
Proof? You posted your opinion and I replied with one of my own.
Designed and engineered by whom?
Quote where I've said no other country has secret advanced weapons technologies?
