China needs to develop the technology. China needs to conduct anti-missile tests, and there will be many tests, whole series of tests.   I don't think it has anything to do with arms sales to Taiwan.
.

Sure it does. It's a measure known by us Chinese as [你做初壹我做拾五] and the Americans knows full well that [intimidation] is the only way for them to make us spill more beans so to speak.

They wanted us to be more transparent so that they know how best to handle us if the ugly happens but they are not confident that we had let them in on everything we do just yet.

China urges US to cancel weapons sales to Taiwan

Flash: http://www.spacewar.com/reports/China_urges_US_to_cancel_weapons_sales_to_Taiwan_999.html

China urged Washington on Saturday to abandon plans to sell missile equipment to Taiwan, warning the move would violate its security and severely undermine trust between the US and Chinese militaries.

"The US arms sales to Taiwan infringe upon China's security interest as well as peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and interfere with China's internal affairs," foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said in a statement.


If the Americans refuses to budge on this one, I'd bet Beijing won't be bashful about other things it may have under its sleeve.

I mean logically speaking, after the painstaking works that Ma and Chen Lien had went through to tie the knots again with Beijing, I doubt if the Ma Administration is as adventurous or as dumb as to try and infuriate Beijing with a batch of new, unnecessary, and unwarranted military hardware, especially since Beijing had agreed to pull back some of the 1500 missiles deemed as targeting the Island.  

Such procurements only proves to put a damper on the atmosphere of detente that the Island already enjoys with Beijing and hence i doubt if that's what the KMT wants going into the future.   

I'm betting why Ma is not making any noise on this is because of mutual defense agreements inked with the US and that whjat's happening, essentially, is that Ma's and the KMT's hands are tied.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

China would be doing much the same versus it's rivals.....


We can see activity in Cuba, Panama and Venezeula.
An informal alliance with Brazil offing, and Brazil increasing defense spending to protect it's assets!

cheerios!

1 question for you. Will you fight the war?


Well said. I asked the question some time ago and my feeling is that the answer would be "no"! These folks are merely armchair generals who advocate conflict but when push comes to shove, will run away from battle rater than face their own convictions.....cowards in other words! This is precisely why I take them to task frequently.
