Posted in: Defense chief questions why China needs aircraft carrier See in context

globalwatcher: US has just introduced a high tech missle 13,000 miles/hr. These missles are capable of hitting any target in the world within ONE HR

What's the pint of this? The states already has enough firepower to destroy the world over a thousand times whereas most Chinese long range ICBM can only hit the western coast of states. Chinese military commanders and experts have said that the ships' a training vessel and it's inferior to their American counterparts. Most threat assessment on this carrier is overblown! If Uncle Sam keeps talking big about military spending at the time when they are broke and unemployment is at 9%........We can see those London/France riots happening in the states really soon....thus americans will defeat themselves.

Simple answer from the Chinese: "When our bad neighbour N.Korea causes trouble and the U.S parks one of their CBGs in the Yellow Sea within striking distance of our capital, we will greet them with our own carriers backed by our inland ASBM so we can send a message to them that the yellow sea is a 'NO STANDING ZONE.'

So it took them ten years to refurbish a carrier? The chinese engineers didn't just copy and paste the original soviet design blueprint to their ship, Hence the major structural differences between Varyag and her sister the Admiral Kuznetsov. They have said refurbishing a carrier is longer than building one from scratch.

The mock up doesn't rock, rattle, nor roll which is the hard part for ship duty in general, especially difficult in landing the plane Well today's dominate U.S naval aviators didn't developed without some growing pains, hundreds of planes have crashed and pliots and deck crew killed since carrier operations begun. I expect the early PLANAF aviators to encounter same problems.

Posted in: Japan may form new unit to watch Chinese navy See in context

From recent PLAN developments, it looks like they are developing pieces to create a carrier battle group. There's going to be a day in the foreseeable future that a huge Chinese navy fleet will pass by this outpost and the Chinese will yell out loud: "observe all you want, there's nothing you can do to stop us from passing over your territory and yes, we will be doing this frequently, so live with it!"

Posted in: FIFA stays silent on referee errors See in context

FIFA 'is' behind in the technology department. I would have love to see the Germans beat the English at dead even, that would have ended all this controversy and shut those english fans up. They probably might have beated them, but not with so much ease. As for the point of rigged matches in FIFA, one ex NBA ref Tim Donaghy proved he can rigged matches even with instant replay technology present. Anyhow, FIFA is in the same position as that other dinosaur sports league known as MLB which itself hasn't adopted the instant replay technology either to the shock of many baseball fans and the dismay of pitcher Armando Galarraga. Adopt the technology next WC to avoid anymore controversy and embarrassment, FIFA!

Posted in: Germany, Argentina advance in games marred by refereeing errors See in context

A bad call by the ref or not, the English are a 3rd - 4th tier soccer power in the world when up against the likes of Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Italy, etc. Their skill level is not there to compete with the big boys. Even though the EPL is the best league in Europe, it is dominated by foreign players. At the end of the day, my friend's English jersey will still have that one lone star reading 66, while my German jersey will have three and possibly a fourth.

Posted in: Again, Obama seeks China's help on Korean crisis See in context

“Relevant parties should calmly and appropriately handle the issue and avoid escalation of the situation.” I agree. If a war broke out, Kim and co will probably vanish from the face of the earth. Not before Seoul is engulfed in artillery fire and a million North Korean rejects cross into China and what if they considered using what limited nuclear capability they may process. The U.S and Japan can seek a harder stance on North Korea because they don't border North Korea.

Posted in: Chinese navy chopper approaches Japanese destroyer near Okinawa See in context

Nothing new here. Korean ships often tests the Japanese navy's resolve in this area. Russian Strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weopons that can lay waste to Tokyo often violate the airspace of the area. In this case that lone Chinese chopper was no threat but rather it is at the mercy of the Japanese destroyer. In the next few years, when the Japanese navy actually runs into a Chinese carrier battle group near Okinawa.....Then they better be worry.
