and a foolish response.
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

The fool with no brain is the fool that throws in a couple of words in a shotgun effort to flame a thread, if you are directing your comment at a specific participant then nominate that person you silly little thing

If you think the thread is foolish why don't you say why - be specific and show us that you do indeed have a brain and outshine the rest of us who have to make do with living in the glow of your brilliance.

Post something meaningfull and cognitive - something of substance.

I think aircraft carriers are a waste of money and any country looking to build up a fleet of them has no peaceful intentions - they are an offensive weapon not a defensive weapon.

that would be fun to observe!
probably a lot of bad press, like in the days of the British, Spanish and French navy patrolling the American waters!

pssst

it's to bully small states!

ha ha ha

but China immediately needs HEAVY AIR LIFT to help it's allies, supply of appropriate JETs to friendly allied states!
and maybe finally a few, maybe not more than 3 battle group for expeditionary purpose......

should PROXY war breaks out in critical states to China!

hmmmmm

That sounds logical!

GD - yes the bully factor is part of the tactic.

But who would China need to protect?

Iran? It would be suicide for China to send a carrier task force into the Indian Ocean west of Diego Garcia.

Venezual and Cuba? Again the Pacific Ocean would be suicide for a carrier task force from China.

Nth. Korea? Does not need carriers for support.

China does not need to protect convoys of essential war materials - it has everything it needs at home.

There are far more sensible ways to expend the peoples money than aircraft carriers. Ships are vulnerable - too vulnerable to attack from above and beneath the surface. sophisticated submarines amke far more sense than some vissual display of stupidity - and for a non aggressive nation it is stupid to have aircraft carriers. Japan hinged so much on the power of the aircraft carriers at the start of WWII in the Pacific - but we all saw how useless they turned out to be - one small dent in the armour of the giant was not enough to do more than make it wake up. Once Japan woke the giant - it had no way of stopping it.
