Arms Race With China Is Heating Up With Their Latest Stolen Technology
The Chinese are not messing around they are planning to take over the United States by 2035. So they have been building up their arsenal and have not been interested in diplomacy. Our Intelligence Officials have been sounding the alarms warning that war is on the horizon. But Biden has practically been twiddling his thumbs. He did ask for aid if China attacks Taiwan but has yet to properly prepare for this conflict. The Chinese on the other hand have been working around the clock to ready themselves. They have been stealing technology from other countries in order to incorporate it into their military. In order to compete with the United States, they are now building their own supercarriers. They of course are using our supercarrier as their template.
"The People’s Liberation Army navy began construction on its second domestically built carrier in 2018. Unlike American aircraft carriers, the Type-003 won’t be powered by nuclear reactors. But like the U.S., it will be able to launch fighters with a catapult system rather than a ramp that most other carrier-capable navies use.
With the exception of its propulsion system, the size of Beijing’s Type-003 and its ability to launch aircraft with a catapult puts it in the same category as a Nimitz-class carrier — still the backbone of the U.S. fleet, said retired Navy Capt. James E. Fanell, a former senior intelligence officer for China at the Office of Naval Intelligence. The Chinese profited mightily from American technology in the process.
China‘s “theft of our secrets has given them both a financial and time advantage in catching up and even in surpassing American military power,” said Capt. Fanell, now a fellow at the Geneva Center for Security Policy in Switzerland. “The [PLA navy] has achieved in one decade what it took America 100 years to accomplish.”
Analysts say China could have close to 10 aircraft carriers by midcentury, particularly if they use their carrier-capable shipyards in Shanghai and Dalian for round-the-clock production. Richard Fisher, a senior fellow for Asian military affairs at the International Assessment and Strategy Center, said aircraft carriers will be essential tools for the Chinese regime as it pursues President Xi Jinping’s goal of military preeminence and political dominance by midcentury.
China “may require as many as 20 carrier battle groups to achieve global hegemony and military containment of the United States,” Mr. Fisher said.
China‘s newest supercarrier could pose legitimate threats to regional neighbors such as Japan, South Korea, and India in five to seven years, but that’s another story for the U.S., Adm. Montgomery said.
“In a U.S.-Chinese conflict, they’re insignificant. They would just be targets for our submarines,” he said. “By the time they catch up with us, carrier-wise, who knows if they’ll even need carriers?”
China‘s effort to develop anti-ship cruise and ballistic missiles that can be launched from a variety of platforms and threaten U.S. surface combatant vessels is an immediate concern.
“Aircraft carriers are a much longer-term issue,” Adm. Montgomery said."
We need to build up our defenses and take the threat of a war with China seriously. They have intentions to take us over, that should be enough for us to take some actions to protect ourselves. A war with China could mean Russian involvement which could mean WWIII. So it is not something to shrug off.
