Ever heard of these incidents? "China has moved beyond simply buying more planes and improving its training. In 2004, it came up with its first specific Plaaf strategy, focusing on “integrated air and space operations, both defensive and offensive.” Using cyberwarfare, space assets and quick offensive strikes, the Plaaf is trying to become a high-tech, high-tempo aerospace force.
Not surprisingly, this doctrine is designed to negate the strengths of U.S. air and naval forces in the region,...

Ever heard of these incidents? "China has moved beyond simply buying more planes and improving its training. In 2004, it came up with its first specific Plaaf strategy, focusing on “integrated air and space operations, both defensive and offensive.” Using cyberwarfare, space assets and quick offensive strikes, the Plaaf is trying to become a high-tech, high-tempo aerospace force.
Not surprisingly, this doctrine is designed to negate the strengths of U.S. air and naval forces in the region, which would be fighting along extended lines, without immediately accessible bases for repair and resupply. China’s military leadership, moreover, is building the missile capacity to try to destroy those vulnerable bases in Japan, Guam and elsewhere.
All this development may be emboldening China’s Air Force. This June, two Su-27s chased a U.S. reconnaissance plane flying over the Taiwan Strait. According to press reports, one of the Chinese fighter planes crossed the median line of the Strait, which has served as a de facto border between Chinese and Taiwanese territory for decades.
Earlier this year, Manila complained that Chinese jets flew into Philippine airspace during a dispute over maritime territorial claims in the South China Sea. Not forgotten in either Washington or Beijing is the March 2001 incident in which an aggressive Chinese pilot collided with a U.S. EP-3 reconnaissance plane, killing himself and causing the Americans to crash-land on Hainan Island, where they were held for 11 days." Or this, which has constantly been happening? "A shadowy unit of China's vast army, tucked away in a nondescript office building in the thriving business hub of Shanghai, is behind a huge proportion of the hacking attacks on U.S. websites, according to an American cybersecurity firm." Or maybe this recent incident? "HAGÅTÑA — Caught unaware, Guam residents on Sunday expressed concern over the two Russian bombers that flew near the vicinity of Guam last week while two sets of military exercises were being conducted on-island."
I don't know about you folks but I'm not feeling a tiny bit secure about China OR Russia. I think I'll stick to my guns and support my military (retired or not) because we may be headed in a very hostile direction.

Not to mention North Korea is on China's side. Get ready for WW3.

True. However if guns didn't exist then people couldn't use them to kill with.

When I see people screaming about a Constitution they've never read and freedom, which is only for people who agree with them, I see people who want a right wing, extremist dictatorship like the one formed in the book, "The Turner Diaries". None of you believe in either the Constitution (ever actually read the second Amendment? It doesn't say what you think it does) or in freedom, like the freedom for our children to come home from school alive instead of a body bag.
