    These are specifically on mobile launchers though. And we saw how well we could take out such weapon platforms in the first gulf war.

In fact, the western-most line of Japan's zone stretches all the way to China and is only about 135km (84 miles) from China's coast at the closest point"

    Why did you quote what was clearly labeled as the opinion of the Director of the China National Association of International Studies as if it were fact, while ignoring the other opinions quoted in the story?

    because Jed asked me to post the link and the source for my claim that Japan had also been expanding their zones in the East china sea, so I posted the link and the quote I was refrencing earlier in the thread.

    The threat isn't today but twenty or thirty years in the future. Most in the worlds naval community believe that China will challenge the U.S. Navy in the South China Sea in twenty or so years.

    This is why most in the U.S. military community and our Allies in the Pacific criticize Obama for only paying attention to the present and not looking at what threats there are over the horizon.

    While the current U.S. Navy under the Obama administration struggles just keeping two carriers at sea, our Navy has become a hollow force and can't even project it's power as it was able to do five years ago. Look at what just happened in the Mediterranean during the Syrian show down some months ago. We were only able to deploy three additional destroyers to the 6th Fleet AOR. When the Chief of Naval Operations was asked "whear are our carriers" ? "Why is our surge carrier still sitting in Norfolk" ? His answerer was the carrier's crew weren't properly trained to put to sea. Instead of training to go to war they are attending mandatory classroom sensitivity training.

    While our Navy is shrinking our allies took notice and our building up their navies.

    Great Britian are building two large super carriers and new escorts. Japan just launched it's first aircraft carrier since WW ll. India's is buying Russia's old carriers while the Russian Bear has come out of hibernation and will be building three new fleets with all new high tech warships. And more often than not, the Russians get it right with new ship designs.

    There's a world wide navy build up going on as war clouds are forming over the Western Pacific. And our current administration is to incompetent to see it.

    During the Syrian show down in the Med, do you know why the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group was hold up in the Red Sea and didn't transit the Suez Canal and enter the 6th Fleet AOR ?

    Because Putin moved one of his Slava class cruisers into the Mediterranean Sea. A Slava class cruiser was designed for one mission, to sink a Nimitz class carrier and it's escorts from 300 miles away with mach-5 supersonic anti ship missiles, each with a 2,000 explosive warhead. And a Slava class cruiser doesn't work alone, it has a few attack subs designed to sink NATO ships and hunt down American subs. It also has AA destroyers who main purpose is protecting the cruiser by shooting down NATO aircraft and ASW destroyers designed to destroy American subs.

    So why do you take his word as gospel over the Japanese opinion? The Canadian commentator -- the first one in the story -- seems to have a pretty level-headed and balanced take on it.

    We went over this in a different thread. This is part and parcel of your tendency toward denigrating your own country because of your anti-Obama fervor.

    I WILL say this -- the ONLY source from which our dominance of the oceans faces serious threat in the foreseeable future is internal.

    It's not his opinion I was interested in it was the zone he was refrencing and the distance to the Chinese coast , you can check a map which is what I did after I read that quote and you will find him to be correct.

    He does bring up a good point though

    "It is important to note that the Chinese and Japanese zones overlap to a large extent. Therefore, both nations need to handle themselves carefully and prudently to avoid any miscalculations or unintended consequences.

    This is something both China and Japan have failed to do.
