Uhhh, no, you people are the ones coming off as very ignorant. First off, you seem to forget, the U.S. could roll through the insurgents and crush
them like a pancake if it really wanted to; the problem is, that would kill the civilians and destroy the city somewhat as well, which the U.S. is not
trying to do. So quit using that as an example.
The insurgents on the other hand don't care who they kill or what they blow up. If the U.S. fought them the way they fight the U.S., it would be an
entirely different ballgame.
Also, don't bring god into the picture; I have no belief in that thing.
As for China and a military, I told you already, it is one thing to have military hardware, it is another thing to know how to use it. In 40 years,
the U.S. will still be ahead of China. You see what China is developing. The U.S. has a military budget far larger than that. The U.S. just doesn't
advertise what it exactly researches and develops; it is all top secret pretty much. In 40 years, the U.S. will have far newer weapons and technology
too. Based off of a much higher military budget.
China first has to catch up to the U.S. technologically, something they cannot do right now; that is impossible. Second, China ALSO has to learn HOW
to use that technology. You know, you don't just acquire nuclear submarines and fighter planes and then, "Oooooh, we're a superpower now, we have
these great weapons...." YOU HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO USE THE THINGS IN WARFARE. The U.S. has been researching all sorts of naval battle and aerial
warfare and land warfare scenarios over the past 60 years.
There is no way China can catch the U.S. technologically in that sense. Or in pure military tactics. There is just too big of a time and research gap.
It is puretely impossible.
And uhhh, no, China does not have the most researchers. How many people you have in your population is not proportional to the number of researchers
you have. The U.S. has some of the best universities in the world, and they keep pluckng the best and brightest out of those universities to work on
military and gov't projects.
You folk are living in a dreamworld. Get over it. The more technologyy China continues to develop, the U.S. develops far more technology, that is also
far more advanced. China can't match the U.S.'s current technology, let alone surpass it.By the time it does surpass the current technology, the
U.S. will have far more advanced technology.
I don't know why everyone has trouble seeing these things. But oh well, everyone loves to hate the U.S.
As for the media, the media will always knock on the U.S. military; it always has. And most of the media don't know what they are talking about. You
need to look more at facts people.
