My post was in response, and in agreement, specifically, with this observation.Yes impressive. But how is that going to stop China taking Taiwan? This armada is going to stay out of range of China's rocket force. As such, how are they going to get boots on the ground to fight?
All the time they stay out of range, they might as well be off the coast of Australia. And if they get near, there's a risk if loosing half is assets before even getting anywhere to fight.
And what about the Joe public at home. Are they happy seeing body bags retiring in droves fighting yet another foreign war with a near advisory that last time they
came to blows together they got a bloody nose?
But, at this point, I get it. Any attempt at a rational evaluation, not based fundamentally in fear-based emotion, will elicit an attempted smack-down. So, despite the fact that no one here is remotely capable of smacking me down, I’ll adopt the party-line and all subsequent posts will simply be:I actually see the US being able to interrupt Chinese air-sea dominance in the Taiwan Straits for some time yet.
CHINA GOOD, AMERCA BAD; CHINA GOOD, JAPAN BAD; CHINA GOOD, TAIWAN BAD; CHINA GOOD, AUSTRALIA, BAD; CHINA GOOD, ENGLAND BAD!!!
The alternate iteration will be:
CHINA WIN, AMERCA LOSE; CHINA WIN, JAPAN LOSE; CHINA WIN, TAIWAN LOSE; CHINA WIN, AUSTRALIA, LOSE; CHINA WIN, ENGLAND LOSE!!!
This should be quite well accepted as it requires no criticality, only Neanderthal chest-thumping!
