So what were you talking about? Western investment in Deng era or sales of weapons then?

Just point arrays of hypersonic anti-ship missiles, more cost effective, 10,000 missiles roughly equal to the cost of an advance carrier. Interest income from China's US treasury debt holding will be enough to pay for it.
Intresting thought, but how does a nstion in the modern age of media spin project power more effecently than a sexy BIG ship. That ship says i am rich, i am powerfull and more impotantly look at me. China, America, Canada and most nations have human rights violations leved against them in the past. But having mass wepons is not sexy even when the people of their nations have no food (china), substrandrad healthcare to no healthcare for the poor (america), an education system failing to meet even third world levels (america), or a nation that spends more on updating its military by buying American, when Europe and Russia can supply for half the cost. At the expence of the nations failing infastructure(canada) but who said the people in these nations are important. Just my view.

Unfortunately yes, for job creation in the midst of economic downturn, we just have to print money to follow through the purchase, and of course to retain the technical expertise.
Look up creation of currency, the fed is a privetly owned bank with a ability to print monies at a 1:9 debt ratio. We are the debt. My return on investment is 5 years return on every 100 thousand invested. So my investment of 100 thousand must make me 1500 every month for 5 years to make back my investment 100%, creating a surplus of 100 thousand ontop of the investment. The fed uses its ability to turn over its investment in the trillions with one difference they print money from no start capital.

Totally agree, ask Sarah Palin if she know where South Africa is? She will say it is a continent, and this is a woman who could have become vice-president of America. Given John Mccain is already so old, anything happen to him could effectively make Sarah the president of the most powerful country in the world, with control over the largest supply of WMD. Mccain must have lost his mind due to old age. Luckily for the global community, Republican was defected in 2008 election, Americans are not that stupid after all.

The printers print the dollar bills. The Federal Reserve lends those printed money to the American government. The American govt writes it down on the liability or debt column. That money will have to be reimbursed by the American tax payers. It's considered as a debt.

AZN, tell me what your aircraft carrier,Liaonong can do . What can it do better than America's carriers ?:)
Why ask me?
Aren't you supposed to be the one with access to classified info?

The Liaoning is a training vessel for PLAAN airmen and seamen to get the knowhow on operating an aircraft carrier.
It is not mean't to be deployed as an actual combat vessel.

Comparing the Liaoning with the USN's ACs is ridiculous.

China's actual flattops, which will become the flagships of the PLAN, are still under construction.

And when they are rolled out and put to sea, they will at a minimum be a match for, if not better than the most advanced Nimitz class supercarriers of the USN.

<quoted text> I know that their aircraft carrier is capable of burning millions of Yuans every day while waiting for the pilots to get fully trained.
And pinoy pilots are burning time on empty runways, because they don't have any planes to fly.

The broke ass pinoy government doesn't even have a spare penny to buy new aircrafts.

The most advanced combat aircraft of the pinoy airforce is the obsolete F-8 Crusader. Which ceased to be airworthy a long time ago and is now rusting away and falling apart on the ground.

Easy to do, fact is most russian hardware out preform American, its just been force fead into American mindeset through movies and CNN that American has the best of EVERYTHING and sometimes that is not the case. Take a look.
Correct.

The yanks never reveal how many of their F-4 Phantoms were shot down in NAM during dogfights with the humble MiG-17.

Besides Soyuz has outlasted Apollo and Gemini by a wide margin.
Soyuz has even outlasted the supposedly more advanced American space shuttle.

The academic ability of the oriental has been well known. In fact well before the Chinese students started to come to UK en masse, the Hong Kong and Singapore students were already among the best in top British University. The difference is even greater up to "A" levels, and in fact I don't think Hong Kong and Singapore took up British's GCSE system because the standard is far too low for them, they retain the old Cambridge "O" level paper which is of higher standard. I think British education is all rounded and still better than Canada and US, and Canada is better than US. However US academic institutions tend to attract the brightest in the world.
