You do realize that as with all Wars it's over resources.
Have you lived there and spoken to people inside the Peoples Army?
They are rising and the USA is falling.
After 40 years of growth do to Nixon and Kissinger selling out American production as a way of apeasment this is now a danger to the USA.
I have been onboard ships in the Red Chinese Navy. Guess what, they do believe that they have more time for them to become number one then we think.
They knew that if they got thier hands on our borrowing they could just sit back and call in the Markers when they are ready. They saw our greed for
more and more and more cheaply made products that only ones who had money could buy.
They heard our cries to keep up with the Jones and they provided products that look and smell like what was once unafordable to the regular working
class. Now they they have it has caused all in America to fall into having to keep replacing shoddy goods for more. Now we have a garbage planet cause
thier products are cheaply made and wear out only after a few uses.
But thier Navy has some pretty awesome high tech gear that resembles our High Tech gear and weaponery.
They have quality military gear and advancing every day while we watch and remain helpless and addicted to Wal-Mart.
They may not have to invade cause we may implode.
Imagine, that possibly all the electronics we buy can help them more then us.
China is methodical and slow to act but they know what they are doing and if need be can sacrifice 500,000,000 soldier deaths and still remain
stronger in soldier force then us.
Just to remind all here the Flanx weapons systems that protect our ships are old and out of date and 9 out of 10 times mal-function.
If we are to protect our NAval Forces we need the on the shelf "DREAD" weapons systems on Choppers, Hummers, and Tanks and Ships.
IF we don't deploy they may get thier little Red Chinese hands on the Dread and then we will really Dread that.
