    A few minutes? Depends on how you count "few", I suppose. Post-Launch Seeker Radar allows for launch without associated facilities, and China has far more missiles than we do capital ships.

    Mind you, it won't come to that. China is not going to actually attack the U.S. Navy over the Senkakus.

    As I pointed out earlier in the thread Japan have been doign the same thing with regards to airspace in the East China sea. Seems to be one set of rules for Japan and another for China
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    Not arguing that. Just saying what I've read, and that I hope you are correct.

    Well, seeing as we're speculating wildly here, this doesn't happen in a vacuum. They can't launch if we deny them their launchers.

    It's quite a way from the USA.....

    Even if they were fully-loaded, it's a single carrier from a nation with hardly any navy. Doesn't really pay to panic over it.

    You do realize, that the Chinese actually have planted the Chinese flag at the Panama Canal, because they bought the damned thing from the Panamanians?

    Woops...
