you have a good point with china. they have japan worried to the point of seriously considering re-militarizing, and given how many economic ties the us have with china, their promise to back up japan if anything bad happens is starting to look..well, iffy.

in all honesty, i doubt the current US leadership or military would be MORONIC enough to get into a fight with an opponent actually capable of attacking the us mainland back.i mean, the last time the united states was in a war that actually threatened them directly was back in the 40's, if i remember right. i mean, there's stupid, and there's STUPID.

The question is not whether or not American ears can hear this submarine, it's how good China's hearing is. Underwater, not so hot so!

Nice submarine! Off duty I would spend all my time in the escape module, and I suppose I wouldn't be lonely there. As for England and America going after Russia, well, that time has long past. Seems to me neither of us has much of a border with the long, sparsely guarded Russian frontier. China, on the other hand .... well how good of neighbors will they be, sort of bloated by the billions of xenophobic fanatics, mostly men too, on Russia's soft underbelly. Be friends with America? Meanwhile, soon China will own us, so, so, best to keep those ties to India, maybe ... China won't win on two fronts.

If it has a propeller, the US attack subs will find it. Moving parts make noise. Period!
