As I have stated the U.S. would never Invade Mainland China. There would never even be a reason to do so.
What the U.S. can do and do very quickly and efficently is in the event that China should unlikely as it seems...attack an ally such as Japan or
attempt to invade Taiwan or even attack a U.S. Territory....the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet as well as the USAF's Variety of Aircraft and Heavy Bombers
that we have stationed all over the Pacific such as Guam, Japan, Midway, Hawaii...and the large USAF Bombing Wings of B-52's, B-1B's and if needed
B-2's that are stationed in the Indian Ocean at Diego Garcia.
China has absolutely ZERO ability or even POSIBILITY of defeating such U.S. Forces and add to this the large number of super quiet Ultr-High Tech.
USN. Attack Subs....the Chinese Navy are sitting Ducks in an Ocean that is the U.S. Navy's Bathtub.
This is why I find it Highly Unlikely that China would attempt any real shooting war in the Pacific region given that the Chinese Military know only
too well how badly they would loose any Military Contest. The Chinese Version of their Naval Admiral on the Joint Chiefs stated to the World Media
much to the chagrin and anger of the Chinese Communist Party...that the people of the U.S. have nothing to fear from China's Military as it is
multiple decades behind the capabilities of the U.S. Military and Navy. He was almost arrested for his words.
As I have said...it is Highly Unlikely that a War would erupt between the U.S. and China and should the Chinese Communist Party be so stupid as to
attempt an Invasion of Taiwan...The U.S. Navy and especially USN. Attack Subs which are stationed in MASS at the Northern Point of the South China
Sea...would sink every single Chinese Ship and Troop Carrier headed for Taiwan.
The Chinese Carrier Killer Missile canot penetrate U.S. Carrier Groups Sm-3 ABM as well as the SM-3 being also an Anti-Satellite Missile as was
demonstrated a few years back as the New Designed and New Solid Fuel that burns Long and Powerful blew up a targeted Satellite that was falling back
to Earth and had a full tank of the Highly Toxic Booster Fuel Hydrazine.
A single SM-3 launched from a ship intercepted the Satellite which was at Orbital Distance and Orbitting the Earth at a Speed near 18,000 Miles Per
Hour. The SM-3 directly hit and expoded the Hydrazine Tank on the Satellite as it was not just this Satellite that was in Orbit and traveling many
many times faster than a Bullet but the SM-3 was targetted specifically at the Hydrazine Tank on it.
If you consider just how Advanced such an ASAT Missile is as well as the tech. used to network Multiple Super Computer, Radar Systems both active and
passive and how advanced the new Solid Fuel is as it is designed to be compact, long burn and many times more powerful than any other countries solid
rocket fuel....AND REALIZE that the SM-3 which took out this incredibly fast and high in altitude Satellite...is also THE SAME MISSILE that all Aegis
Cruisers and othe Carrier Group Missile Defense Ships posses.......well it makes the chore of shooting down a CHINESE CARRIER KILLER MISSILE seem like
riding a bike!
The U.S. also have a Next Gen Hypersonic Ship Killing Missile that makes the new Chinese Missile look like the Wright Brother's plane next to an
F/A-22. The SM-3 can shoot down our missile as well. And it can also shoot down any Chinese ICBM or Cruise Missile....and the U.S. will soon have
the Free Electron Laser on Every Carrier and Aegis Cruiser within this decade as we already have some now operational that are based on Land and a few
The Chinese are NOW aware of this fact....and they fear it.
