The world dominance of the European peoples are coming to an end, and then we will find out how it is to be dominated. (Well, not me, I'll be in the grave before China and India and Brazil overtakes Europe, Britain, the US, Canada, and Australia.) Japan can begin shaking right away though...

There can't be many Nation's that do not have the influence of massive Chinese investment in them which if suddenly withdrawn could cause severe disruption to those Nation's economies. China after Russia was seen as a danger to other Countries years ago, now Russia has moved down the league table China has taken the lead. Hopefully their other Naval Vessel's (barring for this Russian Built Carrier) are built like their "counterfeit" Bulker's in that they look good but do not last long without having major defect's.

Accordingly in regards as a threat to the US and Europe many defense experts are downplaying this carrier as a threat as this time. For several reasons:

1. This a "VERY NEW" concept of carrier aviation in the Chinese Navy. The use and tactics of said ship is still in the very early stages.

2. All Naval Experts now as saying this carrier will be a "Training Carrier" for there future carrier which is under construction. Moreover a green crew on the flight deck and air crew that are NOT fully combat ready.

China is in the early stages of carrier and deployment tactics, so do not think for 1 minute they will deploy this carrier in any real sense of the meaning.

Don't think they want to get rid of the Yanks -- there the ones buying so much of the junk (pun intended) they produce.

If they are buying so much junk, why is it there economy is slowly down? There economy is based on exportation......recently some of there companies had to close there doors because the orders were not coming...Moreover they continue to de-value there own currencey against on the US Dollar.

The Chinese market is not as strong as one is lead to believe.

It's not the Chinese doing the buying -- it's the Americans, the Canadians, etc. One of the main things they are buying from us in return is scrap metal, including ships, and electronic scrap for the metal recovery. Then they sell it back to us again! (Cloud)

The Chinese have the advantage of mindless people who will do as they are told (I never thought I'd say this but...) the Americans are too bright to be brainwashed.....in the main.

I expect they've got some aircraft to go with it.

Yes you are correct it's the Americans and the Canadian that are buying at a reduce rate than before. People are tired of getting "cheap" product's that do not hold up to normal everyday use. Moreover it's the Chinese that are suffering because of the reduced orders in production NOT the Americans or Canadians......

Moreover, the old computers were going to Pakistan or India verses China for many years until the US placed a "Ban" on exporting old computers.

Without doing a whole bunch of research on this -- was it not Chamberlain who asserted "peace in out time"?? Clement Atlee didn't come into prominence of the Labout Party until after the war. (Whaaa)
