    This is just another Russian paper stating what we already know, that China is not buying any more Russian military hardware. They still claim it's because Russia is not sharing their top stuff to China. But in reality, it wouldn't matter imo whether or not they chose to share their "top stuff".

    Well, at least their top nuclear sub stuff could be very useful for us. And seems we can forget about the zubr deal now, right?

    Argentina hasn't got any new important weapons for 2.5 decades. Most of the Chinese new stuff are good enough for them. This is a good bussiness oppertunity. Just do not know how China will handle her relationship with Britain.

    I think the South Americans are seeking another country to counter the American dominance. The same thing is happening in Southeast Asia, where many countries seek to improve relations with the US military against a rising China.

    PLAN got some impressive looking commanders. From the photos it might seem like it's China that got the twenty times more powerful navy ;)

    I believe Argentina can have the ability to secure that islands with several billions US dollar of investment on Chinese weapons and some of their own efforts.

    lol Did you notice the chubby fellow with glasses? The bald old man also fails to make quite an impression on me. But that other commander looks like he could be a commander from a war movie... The American commander pictured does not seem very masculine at all.

    Yeah that guy looks like an accountant, not like what you would expect from a USN Admiral!

    Imagine, a guy who looks like an accountant commanding the most powerful naval force in world history!

    And I will also be off topic.:D This is just an :eek:ff response to the previous post.

    USN CNO Mike Mullen is a no nonsense type of leader. Looks can be decieving. He was chosen strictly on his merit as a commander.

    I doubt that very few naval officers in the entire world have as much experience as ADM Mullen......

    The guy can't help it if he looks like your next door neighbor..:D

    Enough said.
