So, an economic stimulus was announced earlier this month. China's still looking at 8 % growth this year.

Talking about Somalia, a British fleet, a real fleet, unlike China, has been fighting the somwliqn pirates for a while now, the difference is that the British have been winning and rescuing hostages, what has China done

In 2011, China's economic growth was 9.2 %. A drop to 8 % this year is no big deal.

These veiled threats that China makes to Australia and Canada are hilarious, because you are too cowardly to actually try, if you attacked either country the world would rain hell on you, and you know it
The Chinese Communist Party is weak, stupid, and backwards. The feeble lies and empty threats are all they have.

Not a single Canadian gives a second of thought to "Chinese invasion (by rowboats?)"; it is just a stupid CCP lie to swindle the Chinese into thinking the CCP joke of a regime is taken seriously overseas, when in fact it is LAUGHED AT.

How can it, when it does not exist? It is a piece of old Soviet junk still in drydock.

Thailand has a carrier. It works, too.

When will China catch up to little Thailand?

In 2100, if the CCP remains?

Too long. Throw out the CCP and prosperity, power and respect will follow.

I've always thought it dangerous to have so many navies from different countries in the same place, China is the same as the west when it comes to Africa, only interested in taking natural resources

America, britain, Russia, France, and soon India, they build their own aircraft carriers, but China does not have the capability to build their own, so they have to buy old Russian junk, even the Russians keep their best equipment for themselves, and sell their older junk to countries like China. If China asks nicely, britain might build you a proper modern aircraft carrier, but only if you become democratic

Aircraft carriers are going the way of battleships during W.W.II--becoming obsolete due to ship-sinking missiles.

The BIGGEST JOKE is this piece of Ukrainian SCRAP METAL that NO CHINESE PLANES CAN LAND ON OR TAKE OFF FROM!

What a PROPAGANDA JOKE!

The Japanese must be LAUGHING their guts out in Tokyo!

But US carriers can actually MOVE, and planes can take off and land from them.

NO PLANES can LAND OR TAKE OFF from this overpriced Ukrainian scrap metal! That is a FACT! It is for PROPAGANDA only! "We're #10!" Chant the CCP propaganda monkeys!

Carriers will always be important. The Nimitz class carrier was voted the biggest game changer in the 21st century. Don't forget, carriers are accompanied by subs, destroyers and a whole range of other cool shit.
Carriers give you a chance to project a massive amount of power wherever and whenever you like.
China can't do that at present because their carrier is a piece of shit and they don't have the necessary stuff to protect it.
I have no doubt that two American carrier groups would be able to beat Australia. And we're a top 20 military power...
