Posted on 04/05/2011 3:56:59 PM PDT by Nachum
Red Alert: China is sending misleading messages about its massive military buildup.
Last week Chinas Communist regime published the every-second-year edition of its defense white paper, Chinas National Defense in 2010, which claims to promote transparency in its defense planning and deepen international trust, and asserts that its security policy is defensive in nature. But the papers messages are not supported by the facts.
Consider five of the many misleading messages imbedded in the 30-page defense white paper.
First, China attaches great importance to military transparency, the paper claims. The Pentagon takes issue with that view in a report, stating, The limited transparency in Chinas military and security affairs enhances uncertainty and increases the potential for misunderstanding and miscalculation.

Hope their buildup prevents our Trident submarines from launching a barrage of multiple headed warhead missiles.
Obama go down they go up.
Oh, who ya gonnta believe, the military industrial
complex or our friends the Chinese... /s
Of course China has expansionist ideas.
Obama is a weak fish wristed wimp.
Is this not the principal legacy of the Clinton presidency?
Fish have wrists? Who knew ... ;-)
We could put a crimp in Communist Chinese military buildup by ending Free Trade with Communist China. Stop sending them our American wealth
Better to have tarriffs than Commie Chinese nukes dropping on us
Of course, I am sure the Free Trader Communist Globalists will have some sob story...telling us “how good it is to trade with the Commie Chinese”.
Clinton, Bush, and Obama...
The Chinese need a massive military to not only expand in Asia to make room for the burgeoning population but at some point they will have to occupy the western hemisphere as well. Their population is not shrinking as some would have you believe. The one child policy is a farce. In 1980 it’s population was a measly 800 million while today it is almost double at at aprox. 1.5 billion. At that rate of expansion it has no other choice but to move outward. Nobody talks about that issue but we have been responsible for giving them the industrial capacity for engaging in world conquest. In the meantime we are dismantling our industrial capacity so that we can live like we used to in the 19thj century to “save the environment”. Europeans (ie white people) as a race will extinct by the end of the century. We may be willing to “share” the planet, but that is not in anybody else’s plans. I wish we would wake up, but unfortunately the public indoctrination system has most of us drunk on the wine called Utopia sold at the river Denial.
Ever try to hold a fish straight up by holding onto the tail?
That’s Obama’s wrists.
Chinas anti-'space weaponization' view hasnt stopped it from developing its own space weapon, however....... The white paper makes no mention of Chinas 2007 successful..... 'direct-ascent anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons test,'... which destroyed its own satellite in space. .... The test raised questions about Chinas capability and intention to attack U.S. satellites, according to a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report....
The Pentagons report states,.... "China continues to develop and refine this [ASAT] system, which is one component of a multidimensional program ...to limit or prevent the use of space-based assets by potential adversaries during times of crisis or conflict.... The report also indicates ....China is developing kinetic and directed-energy weapons for ASAT missions.
Gen. Xu Qiliang, commander of Chinas air force, appears to confirm the Pentagons analysis. He said in 2009 that ...."military competition extending to space is inevitable and emphasized the transformation of Chinas air force into one that integrates air and space with both offensive and defensive capabilities",..... according to the Pentagons report.
They learned the lesson of WWII: He who has the production capacity and the political will wins. They have both, we no longer have either.
“Hope their buildup prevents our Trident submarines from launching a barrage of multiple headed warhead missiles.”
As I understand it, Obama has ordered the nuclear weapons removed from our subs. Any Navy people out there that can comment? (Recall, Japan sent a strongly worded note saying, in effect, “Hey! Where’s our umbrella?)
It’s called a POWER VACUUM.
The IDIOTS on this site that thought we could DISARM without consequence are TOTAL IDIOTS.
The price we will soon pay is to be “Second to One” (to paraphrase Nixon) to China.
While I’m sure it makes Obama happy, to not have an imperialist evil country running the world, I’m not sure the rest of America is ready for that status.
Taiwan is toast. The ChiComs are going to hit Taiwan while ObaMao is still in office, as they know he will not only not support Taiwan, but will spout some inane tripe that it’s an internal Chinese matter and the Chinese should be allowed to deal with their own issues without any comments or actions from the rest of the world.
China won’t have to fire a shot, they’ll just buy out Taiwan.
