My inner cynic became extremely cranky after I read this New York Times article: Growth in China’s Drone Program Called ‘Alarming’. The message here is that China has ramped up its unmanned aerial drone program, which could be some sort of threat to U.S. superiority in this field in the future. Question: Why is it OK…
Yes, counterfeits are a problem in China, and some fake parts are making their way into the U.S. military supply chain. But who is primarily responsible for this?
China says the U.S. is playing the old containment game. The U.S. says it’s worried about Chinese regional aggression. Both agree to spend more money.
I’ve been banging on this drum for quite some time. In short, I’ve been skeptical of all those China demonizers in the U.S. who are somehow connected to big military contractors. We’re talking big money from these contracts, and this translates not only into nice big campaign contributions, but also cushy jobs for politicians when…
A cash-for-Taiwan deal between the U.S. and China is preposterous, although not for the reason you might think.
China and the US do not wish to inflict harm on one another, but they certainly have the military assets sufficient to get the job done. This is apparently a controversial statement in Washington, D.C.
Seems like the PLA and the US army need to attend one of those touchy-feely trust-building workshops. No, actually this is a serious problem.
