The commander of the Chinese Navy, Admiral Wu Shengli has boasted that the Chinese Navy is focusing on accelerating the growth and technology of its Navy. This is true according to what I have been seeing recently. The Chinese are really beefing up their armed forces, especially their Navy. Now all have the right to have a strong defense but my question is, ”What is the reason for the urgency at this time?”
China will focus on developing its combat warships, its ultra-silent submarines and more sophisticated aircraft, torpedoes, and missiles.
Now I have no problem with every country wanting to be able to protect itself but ask yourself this question. Who in the world needs ultra-silent subs, and stealthy missiles. They certainly don’t need it for self defense purposes. There’s only one superpower in the world other than China, and those weapons are offensive in nature. The only force that is even a close match for these offensive capabilities is the United States.
Personally I feel that we as the world’s superpower should not allow our military might to be eclipsed. You might wonder why I am so adamant about this, well China is a repressive Communist regime. Now I will admit that we have our problems also but we don’t hold our citizens hostage in a communist dictatorship. I feel that our navy is up to the task of handing the Chinese Navy but we need to stay ahead. Our soldiers are professional and proud. We have seen this characteristic time and time again in the customers who have come in for custom navy rings.
