Re: China sparks aircraft carrier scare .Nov 18th, 2008
I don't see why they shouldn't build them... they're a big country, with big influence, and they will need some methods of quick deployment around their borders.
The fearmongering of them possibly using them as an offense weapon isn't that big of a deal.... they, like everything else, can be destroyed if it comes to that point.
Take the Bismarck as an example.
And if one or two countries are allowed to run around the globe with multiple aircraft carriers, why shouldn't they? Because we're told their the bad guys? Well there are bad guys in every aspect of our alliances and neighbors who have the same technology and it only takes one decision to turn that technology against anybody they wish, including their allies.
And alliances never last forever..... so big deal for them making carriers.
Anybody that takes a close look at the Chinese gov't knows they are the bad guys.
