Like they need to destroy America. We are doing a great job of destroying ourselves. All we need to do is elect more Republicans.
 
2020-05-04 1:56:08 PM  
Yep.  The "greatest nation on Earth" is also the greatest at destroying itself.

al Qaeda figured that out.  One day of attacks was all it took for us to kill thousands of our own, hundreds of thousands of others and lose a shiat load of money in the process.

Get a Republican in office and America is that much closer to her demise.

Don't worry.  It flies extremely slow and is always lost.
 
2020-05-04 2:00:57 PM  
pretty sure they can drop the debt bomb any time they like and not leave their desk.
 
2020-05-04 2:12:57 PM  
I like how some Weibo posted what the bomber may look like.
 
2020-05-04 2:13:12 PM  
I am pretty sure they can just embed some Chinpokemon-type shiat into Tik Tok videos and we will happily destroy ourselves.  See: USA 2020.
 
2020-05-04 2:13:15 PM  
Isn't it cheaper to back their own moron to become president? Like maybe back Loie Gohmert or Steve King for president. And there's always Paris Hilton or Snooki.
 
2020-05-04 2:16:15 PM  
That looks like a B-2... I wonder where they got that design?

I presume "can reach L.A." is just sensationalism.  China has no incentive to pose a military threat to the U.S. directly.  Not when Congress has opened every orifice to foreign and multi-national interests.

Why invade when you can get insane RoIs that exceed any threat-imposed tribute by hiring a lobbying firm?
 
2020-05-04 2:17:05 PM  
Imagine how screwed America would be if it had external enemies. You'd be scared too.
 
2020-05-04 2:19:21 PM  
lol they have stockpiles of hypersonic missile already that can get to the u.s in 15min not sure that plane is going to be made in large numbers.

I hope it gets a bad-ass name from something in Chinese mythology or history that was powerful and deadly like "the dragon" or "the salamander" or "the tasty bat soup"

Chinese dominance is fine, so long as you don't expect to be able to vote or dissent against government.

Yup. If they actually wanted to destroy us they just have to keep donating to the Republican party/candidates and American right wing lobbyists, think tanks, and organizations like Putin has done to spectacular success.

2020-05-04 2:21:25 PM  
If they do that, I'm gonna invade China as a one-man army and I'm gonna fart like the gates of hell until they suffocate and surrender to my horrible bioweapon.

Nimbull: That looks like a B-2... I wonder where they got that design?


You mean a design that first flew 31 years ago, and is about to be replaced by...something...that requires a big-ass hanger that they've built over a taxiway at Area 51?
 
2020-05-04 2:22:29 PM  
So China claims to have "quantum radar" that makes stealth bombers obsolete and yet they just built a stealth bomber? That's an awfully expensive matching set of belt and suspenders, no?

Gonna guess one of the B-2's designers.

I pick Tasty Bat Soup. At least that one's real and killed citizens of nations around the world.

If your enemies don't have the magic quantum radar with trilithium flux capacitors, your stealth airplane will still be hard for their old fashioned radars to see.

Like you just did?
 
2020-05-04 2:25:13 PM  
So, in spite of what the article says - it looks like this is a sub-sonic stealth bomber.  I was trying to figure out how the hell they'd make a B2 knock-off that was supersonic, or more to the point, supersonic more than once.
 
2020-05-04 2:30:09 PM  
This will give middle-aged guys who read Clancy novels an excuse to add more "Chicoms" and "Norks" to their conversations.
 
2020-05-04 2:30:43 PM  
Like they need a stealth bomber when they could just fill a few dozen container ships with TNT and we'd happily distribute it to every Walmart in the country.

This is a moderated corporate wind tunnel, not a public forum. Also, show me on the straw man where I just voted or expressed dissent against a government.

Good insight.  I retired from the military with much of it in the Pacific theater and I can't recall either term being used except by Clancy fanciers

Sorry, I meant echo chamber. Although a wind tunnel's not the worst metaphor either.

Supersonic bombers are largely useless. The B-1 was obsolete and useless before it went into production and that's why it was canceled (but later brought back and built).

Is it the H-20? (checks article). YEAH H-20.  Wake me when they have an engine to put into it.  And it's not stealthy, its steath-ish, and doesn't look like a B-2.

The Remaining States of America will become The Chinese States of America. Pacifica will endeavor to develop good trade relations with our communist friends to the east.
 
2020-05-04 2:44:01 PM  
We've had bombers that can cross the world with dangerous payload for decades. Why is this news?

I can type words like "quantum radar," too. Anybody can make shiat up. Iran honestly tried to pass off bad photoshops as "proof" of their scary program.

They already have.

That was the farking problem to begin with.

Ringshadow: We've had bombers that can cross the world with dangerous payload for decades. Why is this news?


It's news because it implies that China is slowly becoming our military equal.  And that when their economy gets strong enough, they will attemp to replace the U.S. as one of their major trading partners.  Then they will use that military might to go tell us to fark ourselves.

Not in a direct invasion of the United States, mind you. But more like China using its military might to invade other smaller countries to exert its will. You know, like the way the United States has been doing for the past 60 years.   And some of those smaller nations may be friends of ours.

They won't try to replace us as a trading partner. They need us to buy their shiat. I will also point out China has bought like 3 aerospace companies trying to build a reliable jet engine and their attempt at an airliner has been a farking disaster. The FAA and EASA have nothing shiat it down multiple times.
 
2020-05-04 2:58:53 PM  
Wait, so it's a steam powered stealth bomber?

Subby: nuclear stealth bomber

The article: supersonic stealth bomber

Meanwhile the article shows a design that is...

- Probably inaccurate
- Definitely subsonic
- Not powered by a nuclear reactor
- Presumably capable of carrying nuclear weapons

Shiboleth: Is it the H-20? (checks article). YEAH H-20.  Wake me when they have an engine to put into it.  And it's not stealthy, its steath-ish, and doesn't look like a B-2.


You beat me to it. Also based on their civilian program tell me when they get the avionics be useful and it needlessly complicated.
 
2020-05-04 3:04:37 PM  
Why waste their time/money. We're taking care of that ourselves.

Hell with how lax standards are in the US, they could probably sell rat poison as a coronavirus cure.

What's the plan, bomb LA then land at LAX?
Because there won't be a home to return to.
