Regardless of the bogus and intentional “sequestration”, it’s quite unwise to leave five U.S. aircraft carriers laying around while the military of an enemy nation continues advancing capability by leaps and bounds. The PLA has hit every Washington network via hacking while a decision was made two years ago to go soft on the CCP. Advanced F-35’s at the moment cannot fly into clouds, bad weather or at night. Meanwhile, the “latest” nuclear weapon made by the US is roughly 20 years old. Then lets not also forget to thank the Clintons who gave China a technology boost to their nuclear arsenal (while ours are reduced or collecting dust) by selling hundreds super computers through the U.S. Department of Commerce during the 90’s. And to cap it off, our military leadership thinks the global economy is more important than physical protection of the US citizenry.
This is only the beginning when it comes to describing with a few examples just how crippled America has become over the last five years. If someone thinks America today is safe, cannot be touched and can pull through this “recession” that is going on its sixth year — they couldn’t be farther from the truth. America is one disaster away from a total economic collapse, or one economic collapse away from war.
Beijing: Lawmakers from China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the world’s largest military, has called for increased battle preparedness to win wars amid simmering tensions with some of the country’s neighbours over maritime disputes.
“Our military construction is currently facing an unprecedented historical opportunity with various rigorous challenges existing at the same time. Since the situation is so pressing, it is necessary to build up the armed forces in accordance with the high standards of fighting,” said Mo Junpeng, PLA deputy to the NPC.
The 2.3 million-strong PLA, World’s largest military, this year got USD 115.7 billion alloted to it in the budget, second only to the United States.
“Being able to fight and win battles is the special ability of the Chinese military,” said Junpeng, who is also the commander of a base under the Second Artillery Force (SAF) of the PLA, when speaking of the goal of the military construction.
“For 80-odd years since the founding of the PLA, the fundamental function of the combat force of Chinese military has never changed. Thus, we must adhere to the great tradition of fighting for victory. Only the ability to fight and win battles can keep war at bay,” said Junpeng.
