    If the argument is that China is kicking our a$$, wouldn't that militate in favor of our becoming MORE socialistic so we can compete with their superior system?

    Bank on it
    Why would they risk a war with us militarily when they're already taking us over economically?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Can I get a GREAT BIG THANK YOU from everyone for our Darling Corporate pigs at the trough that allowed this to happen out of GREED...
    wont be long when america is going to condemn corporations for putting the entire country at risk for a buck
    Could you please link us to specific articles concerning China's military build up rather than a topic search on China's military?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Do you have any graphs that shows China's spending on internal security?

    As I understand it, China's security forces, such as the People's Armed Police, have very close ties to the PLA. The PAP may be a close analogue to the U.S. National Guard in that they are a gendarmerie that can use military equipment for domestic purposes. Because of the PRC's authoritarian nature, they may put more emphasis on the PAP than they do the PLA. So equipment made for the PAP may be dual-roled for use by the PLA in case they decide to act militarily.

    Again, It is a huge error to assume that other cultures and other nations have the same values

    The perception that China is/was a 3rd world country and is inferior to the west pisses them off greatly (really pissed off) because, the Chinese consider their culture to be superior to all others. They maintain the old Chinese position that they are the center of the world and everyone else are barbarians especially, the US

    I don't, and to be fair, I think these estimates of China's military spending are very rough. They don't exactly publish their budgets in a federal register.

    For all the war hawks.... war with China is not going to happen. They have the upper hand with us in almost every way. All they need to do is continue to sit there and let all the big businesses come to them.

    Business and money controls the world right now, not government. The Chinese know this and their economic policy has been smart as a result.

    This is why we must maintain our technological advances in our military's advances in all areas and go even farther to secure our secrecy.


    With the exception of having a weak kneed person at the helm we are far and away ahead of all others in terms of ability.


    Politicians have made us look weak because they have placed limits on our military when dealing with enemy forces.


    When dealing with insurgents they only give up when they are dead, and we are too limited in ways to go after them. They use civilians as shields and we back off.. Civilians don't like the bad gut either but they fear them.


    We have to convince the good people we are there to help them and if they point out the bad guys we will protect them. Then go about killing all the bad guys.
    Actually, I would argue that spreading out military too thin across so many theaters of war and having defense contracts spent on ****ty cheap shoddy services to bolster the profits of megacorporations or to provide jobs making unneeded and unwanted equipment at congressional districts so that Congressmen have an easier time getting re-elected has made the U.S. weaker than anything else you mentioned.
