    China completes stealth fighter prototype

    China completes stealth fighter prototype - Yahoo! News

    It appears that with globalization and the developing of the third world, the US has also contributed to making itself destined to be the author of its own fall from hegemony!

    And it does not end with China:

    In January 2010, Russia unveiled a new aircraft touted as a rival to the US jet, developed by Sukhoi. According to Fisher, Japan has a homegrown programme, while India is cooperating with Russia.

    I know you're wishing for this, but you are way premature, if not dreaming. China having an objective for a "F-22" fighter, doesn't automatically mean it was met. They just started taxing tests. We are building 3rd generation stealth, what level do you think our R&D is at? Hmmm? This is their FIRST stealth figher. Get a grip.

    It maybe, but seeing that they develop at a rate much higher to our own gives one reason to pause. Rome thought it was invicinble too and was far more sophisticated than the barbarians, yet it fell.

    I didn't say we are invincible, but it's inevitable they will have stealth technology....the ONLY thing that matters is how good is our radar? The Roman Empire fell from the inside, not from the outside.

    The Chinese have yet to develop an effective jet engine.

    Yes, but they are nearly there. And do not overlook the fact that the Russians are in this game as well and they do have effective jet engines.

    Exactly my point....Are we sure that the Chinese didn't get some information from someone in the US chain? I mean hell, we got privates giving thousands of classified documents to Aussie anarchists, what else is bound to drop? Remember how Clinton gave nuke tech to NK?

    Chinese espionage is uniquely effective for a variety of reasons.
