    Re: China now "offical" threat to the US

    i have never heard such a load of bs in my life!!!!
    quote:By some estimates, China now has the worlds third-largest defense budget, after the United States and Russia, spending from 70 billion to 90 billion dollars per year

    so why arnt u accusing russia? why dont you start spending less yourself?

    quote: Specific concerns about the lack of transparency in China's military budget and capability were also not addressed, including the deployment of medium- and short-range missiles that can hit US airbases.

    Some experts believe China will develop a world-class defense industry within the next 10 to 15 years and seeks to replace the United States as the preeminent power in the Pacific -- even globally.

    why dos the us need to be the only power in the pacific? its on the other side of the world. and its not china's fault that the u.s has so many airbases in korea and japan, so close to china.

    quoteNot only can Chinese nuclear missiles now target the continental United States; the whole configuration of the new Chinese force is clearly designed with the United States as the hypothetical enemy," Fisher said.

    so what? the u.s has 10000 nuke that can target anywhere in china. and china is building up with taiwan as the enemy, taiwan just has too much u.s equipment.

    quote:But what you are seeing are capabilities to, in fact, deny the United States from projecting power in the region," said Dan Blumenthal, a former senior director for China and Taiwan in the US Secretary of Defense's office.

    what give u the right to project power in asia? china is the power there, so obviously it would feel insecure from this.

    quote:China is developing military capabilities that make it much more difficult for the United States to access hot spots in the region and, therefore, to meet its various defense commitments which have underguarded security order in the region for half a century," he said.

    Beijing has deployed various classes of destroyers with cruise missiles that can fire upon US carrier battle groups, "which is a matter of great concern," he said.

    In addition, Blumenthal said, China's deployment of diesel submarines made it "much more difficult and complicated for US carrier battle groups to get into areas that they need to get into."

    so chian cant have weapons that can attack you? upgrade your carreir than. dont tell the chinese to downgrade their missle
    plus, if your not attacking china, why would china try to complicate your defense strategy?

    quote:China is also accused of using its manned space program to achieve its military ambitions.

    "Every mission performed either electronic or military surveillance for the PLA (People's Liberation Army) but China is loathe to admit, from the very inception, that its manned space program has directly served military purposes," Fisher said.

    load of bs. no proof. and china doesnt have a global gps liek america either

    transperancy my ass. if u dont like it, then dont be so transparent ursrlf.

    Re: China now "offical" threat to the US

    Jones Henry and MIGleader. Rumsfield did not say those things that were quoted by MIGleader. Some dude in a neocon think tank did. It's all speculation on his part. The man, Richard Fisher of the US-based International Assessment and Strategy Center, is the one making those statements not Rumsfeild...He's just a neocon . Full of bravido.

    Perhaps you should look up Rumsfeilds comments after his trip to the PRC.

    Thank you.

    I think bd popeye is right. Look at the url of the article source. Those are some people that have too much time on their hand and does not reflect the view of general US population.
    ALthough China and US have conflicting interest on a lot of issues, but being a "threat" to each other is too strong of a word.

    Re: China now "offical" threat to the US

    no offence... Rumsfield is a straight-up *** very sry here mod, I'll NOT try to do this AGAIN the next time***[/I]

    1.) Okie even if China is spending at 90 billion, the US is spending 3x that much

    2.) Buildup, last time I check, the PLA is in reduction, going from quantity to quality, right ppl? *everyone shakes their head*

    3.) US is just jealous that China will overtake her as the global power of the new century, so what if China is going to? This is what happens when theres a country that has a labor force of 760mil+

    4.) Threat? US have 10k nukes and China has 1k? Threat my *rear*!

    5.) Missile to hit air bases... WOW! Considering some bases are in Korea and Japan, OH YES CHINA IS GONNA ATTACK THOSE COUNTRIES MR RUMSFIELD!

    6.) Look at China's bombing capability, 0 compared with the US, Tu-16s cant do crap, even if China gains air superiority, there is nothing China can do to put the US into submission

    7.) China has a doctrine so self-defence, ask yourselves, when was the last time China was in a full war cough *korea* cough

    8.) The equipments using in China arent ready completely, they are most likely to enter service in about 2-3 years, from missiles to planes (i.e J-10) and even the new J-11 isnt gonna be ready maybe after 2010 and the J-XX wont be until around 2015, then it takes time to built them, so at the end, just how much does China have that can take the US right now? not many

    9.) OMG SPACE DOMINANCE!?!?!? China's first and second manned flight, WOW, and the US has been up there since 59?! WTF!!! REALLY! How can 2 manned flights make China dominate space?

    10.) Last reason, China has 750 missiles towards Taiwan, big deal, none of them are nuclear, and this isnt the Cuban missile crisis, this is true throughout Chinese history, parts of China gets reunited through force *unfortunately*, Mr. Rumsfield, PLZ take a years or two worth in Chinese history!

    *Edit mostly due to spelling and grammer and language*
