RealClearWorld - The Dragon's Spear: China's Asymmetric Strategy
After read beginning, you can throw this paper into rubbish bin. The author cannot even make the basic right: the missile which is supposed to be able to hit carriers is not DF21A but DF21D.
A minor error really. They are both two-stage, solid-propellant, single-warhead medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) in the Dong Feng series, are they not? Can you comment on the rest of the article: anti-sat and cruise missiles, lasers, attack submarines, stealth fast-attack missile craft, cyberwarfare .... and the whole concept of asymmetrical warfare?
It is just another garbage aticle to brain wash their own people.
It's propose is to make people believe China can only do those "asymmetrical " thing. So, the real conclusion from the aticle is that west/US is still far head of China.
When Chinese on DFI chime in to criticize an article with words like "rubbish" and "garbage", the value and credibility of the article increase in my mind. Just something I have learned here. Do either of you have a substantive criticism of the arguments put forward by the author? His conclusion is even more comprehensive than you say.
Also, the author's background is unique.
Really, guys, put a little more effort into your posts.
Well, it is the main thing the guy tried to tell you.
Again , believe what you want to believe.
BTW, we have heard too many speeches like " China will not have this,...China will not able to do that...China will fall in 5,10 ,20, 30..years.." From Nobel price winners, western politicians
I try the weigh the evidence and facts as they are presented. Words like "rubbish" and "garbage" and silly emoticons are neither.
The evidence is their own words.
The propose of this article is clear.
So, why it is not rubbish .
For example , do you think "superior " US can win China in Asia ?
Let's define "win." I do not believe US can conquer China, and would have no benefit to do so. I believe the US can, with its east Asian allies, counter the threat of a territorially aggressive China.
LoL, conquer China is to far,
Let's say " save Japan from China", can US able to do that ?
Do you think any country in Asia will let US use they as base?
If US have this kind of ability , then there should nothing happening in SCS and DiaoYu island, and China will quiet as at 70's.
I believe so.
Japan and Korea are two examples..

I imagine when push comes to shove with China in the Philippines, the latter will want Uncle Sam back.
Again, believe what you want to believe .
But could you just tell me how?
Those bases can be distorted in minutes if they are used to against China, and the host country will be punished.
So, which smart guy will allow US to use their base?
Well, this is where I can't waste anymore time with a megalomaniac.
Megalomania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is a good address for you.
I was just asking you list a country that willing to allow US to use their base in a war between US and China, and how the base or the country can survive attack from China.
What it's benefit to do it , at what cost?
Only way to deal with such people.
Well, it is just a rescues of running out of argument .
And he's desperate for attention. See, megalomania is often not easily differentiated from narcissism.
Ok, my time is wasted.
