They should let the US Navy visit Shanghai...

...and allow a few tours aboard. The Nimitz group would be nice. Just so you could compare and realize the horrible truth.

sorry, you have not proven me wrong, "face"

Did I ask about news "bits"?

No, I asked about "headlines".

You're right about one thing:  no aplogy required from me.

Very funny, relentless!

Also, bchung, there isn't "a" Kitty Hawk, there is only "The" USS Kitty Hawk -- which is America's only permenantly forward deployed aircraft carrier.

When the Kitty Hawk visits Hong Kong, it is news, and I can understand why.  But I still don't get why a port call by Chinese warships in China is news...

I wish

I hope someday they let a US carrier visit mainland China.  I'm sure China's leaders and military have no illusions about our carrier fleet's capabilities.  But it would be interesting to gauge the Chinese public's reaction.

Soon we will be replacing our steam-powered catapult systems with electromagnets.  Once the Joint Strike Fighter is deployed, I'd really like to see foreigners' reactions to it.  I think we have ten carrier battle groups deployed right now and one or two being overhauled with no current fighter wing assigned.  Once they are all outfitted with the new catapult systems, updated F-18C's and JSF's, there truly will be no competition.  I think showing this stuff off will make the world a safer place.

What you have written has been written before, many times over 60 years.

The answer was always the same.

We have rifles and we have millet
