Global Times took a common line from China's national defense doctrine before the country acquired an aircraft carrier of its own - namely that carriers are an offensive weapon while anti-ship missiles are defensive. "It can be used like a stick to hit the dog intruding on our backyard, but it can never be used to attack the house where the dog comes from,

So what happens when they put dogshiat on the stick?

Two hits and it's considered sunk? Milton Bradley...and maybe Rhiannna(I don't care if it's spelled right) might have something to say about that.

Did those farking idiots just call the Navy dogs and our country a doghouse? They do realize if they hit a carrier it's game on right?

If only Navy Carriers stood still on dry land.

Not, say, sail at 30+knots surrounded by cruisers and destroyed with capability to down theater ballistics missiles.

2,000 km range... these are ballistic missiles I take it?

So this seems more along the lines of a first strike "defensive" weapon? Like if we decided to park a carrier group in or near Taiwan?

I'd bet they work like the old AIM-54, ballistic boost phase with radar or ir homing unpowered terminal phase.  Either that or they are big, slow cruise missiles that can be intercepted.

Not to mention the fact that we have at least 10 more where that came from. 23 if you count the Amphibs.

And we all remember out calm reaction to the sinking of the USS Maine, to the attack on Pearl Harbor, and to the Gulf of Tonkin incident...

With the current administration pushing massive defense spending cuts (by way of refusing to make the cuts in entitlements), America will soon lose its ranking as the largest, most powerful military in the world.  We'll fall second to China, then third to India, and soon we'll be pillow fighting with the rest of the pre-teens at the bottom-of-the-list-sleepover.  We won't be sending forces to help quell the Greek riots or any other humanitarian or security missions.  We'll be welcoming Chinese soldiers to our gulf coasts and other disaster prone areas.  How does that make you feel?

How does the thought of a Chinese soldier laying his bayonet next to your daughter's bed make you feel?
How does the vision of your wife stir frying the household pets for the "visiting" platoon sound?
How does the sound of "OOOOHHHHAAAAAAAA...." beginning the answer to even simple questions make you feel?
How does that ping pong paddle feel in your hands as your forced to compete for rations?

Probably makes you a little sick, doesn't it?  Well, you could always join the American Armed Forces and do something about it - or, do something about it as a private citizen, while you still have your Second Amendment rights.

Or you could go back to bed and snuggle yourself to sleep in your warm comforter.  Tell me, American slave, was it sewn in the USA?

Interesting.  So they put the outline of a box on the ground, buried some dynamite under it, blew it up and then let the tin foil hat types find it on google earth?

Truly, this is a clever plan by the Chinese to divert our attention from the discussions around infringing up our Second Amendment rights and whether or not Miley Cyrus has a smooth and hair-free vulva and focus is solely on crushing their communist arses.

I guess if we ever decide to park one of our carriers in the Gobi, we'll really be in trouble.

Meanwhile, these things are actually going 30 knots out in the middle of the ocean surrounded by half a dozen ships all with anti-missile countermeasures.
 
2013-01-31 08:12:35 AM
Honestly, a swarm of missiles seem like an effective and relatively cheap counter to an expensive surface fleet.  If 90% of incoming missiles are shot down, how many missiles do you need to fire at a carrier (group) to knock it out?  Is it more than 4.5 billion dollars worth (construction cost of a Nimitz class according to wiki) of missiles?

You probably only need to hit with a couple missiles. Of course, attempting to sink a US carrier group can't be good for the health of your populace.

1.) Less discomforting than the thought of an American military-state police doing the same, because that's a more likely scenario. While being the average Chinese citizen sucks more than being the average American citizen, the Chinese mind their own damn business. We're the ones sending troops all over the world on fools' errands.
2.) Delicious actually. Idiot beagle eats better than me.
3.) Sounds motivational
4.) Probably the same as having to play badminton for rations, because I suck at both. I'd probably starve.

The Chinese have defensive weapons, not offense. We have a military with enough funding to invade and hold most countries around the world - hell it only took us 1 month to decimate the world's former 4th largest army.

It's OUR leaders who've spent us into the ground on fruitless unconstitutional wars, demanded warrant free access to our e-mails, indefinite detention of American citizens, created the LARGEST police/prison population in the world, are seeking to revoke more of our 2nd amendment rights, and who are starting to turn our fancy weapons of war towards us. Why sweat a Chinese invasion, when Obama's got 20,000 drones flying over our heads?

In the end, the only power the Chinese have over us is some laughable pieces of paper we've been shoveling to them for their hard labor and raw materials. Paper promises we'll probably soon hyper-inflate away.

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." - Surprisingly, many people think its about foreign invasion. Great and powerful nations don't get conquered overnight. They rot from the inside out long before that happens.

Will those Celestials on the Gulf coast be bringing any General Tso's with them or should I just order some spring rolls from the Vit-man-ese already there? Also, what's the current estimate of how many Chinese soldiers it takes to equal one American soldier? Is it like 12:1 or something? With the cuts because of the entitlement stuff will that fall to 10:1? Worse than 10:1? Because we cannot have that? And which navy's ships are the Chinamen gonna hitch rides to Alabama on? You think they're hiring and cabin boys? 'Cause I think it'd be swell to get in good with them before their boots hit our shores. I think I can make a killing on 100% pure ground manatee penis. It's the shiat for putting the oomph back into your jackhammer; makes rhino horn look like lizard teats. (Well it's really Hereford penis, but I can get the manatee penis once they get here and give me some protection.) If you want you can go in with me on the manatee penis. Sounds like you know a bunch about stuff and junk and it'd be really groovy to have a forward thinking motherf*cker like yourself on my side.

Oh, I'm not suggesting it's a smart thing to do.  But I am suggesting an expensive surface fleet including nearly as many aircraft carriers as the rest of the world combined might not be a great investment when A) there's no opposing Navy to fight and B) there's a relatively cheap way to disable those expensive ships.
