    Deterrence. That is the purpose of those submarines.

    Tell the Chinese to bring it on, we've got something for them.

    The real battle is human, civil, labor and environmental rights, and China hasn't even started the race. Its economy is a paper tiger, ripe to be overthrown by the child slave labor and toxic dumping it relies upon.

    We are way ahead of China in those areas to be sure, but its economy is growing a lot faster than ours, and will soon surpass us. Money is power, after all, power to dominate which is more important in the world of the 21st. century than military power.

    The age of domination is over. Democracy will sweep the planet. When it does, China will be shown for the paper tiger it is. Spare us the BS about the Chinese soldier. They are inexperienced slave labor conscripts that would be happy to run at first opportunity. Chinese people defect to African countries, and you think any of those abused slaves will stand for their oppressors.

    China is BS. Deal with it.

    I can't say I blame them for their thoughts.



    The Chinese can dream all they want, but they won't be going to war with the USA anytime soon.

    Wait and see.

    No, I'm just saying that China won't be going to war with the USA anytime soon and those 5,113 nukes have a lot to do with that.

    So China invades "their" island 100 miles offshore in a massive airlift. They smash any major resistance in the first week. What deterrence do the subs offer?
