    With a bankrupt economy smaller than India, can the US afford to have all these useless weapons as China is now undisputed sole superpower in strategic, military and economic terms and the One Belt will consolidate China’s position even further as US decline accelerates.

      as long as they printed the dollar, and many country uses them in trading, sadly, they can

        Nazi Germany which also has plans for global domination tried that by printing worthless Reichsmarks in a hollowed out economy and we all know what a glaring success that turned out to be. US is following a similar self-destruct pattern as its people starve.

          So you are supporting our enemy china?Liberals and communists dont surprise me anymore

            How many countries did China invade and how many the U.S.?
            U.S. Empire is a global menace and if you think demonrats and redbloodlickans arent run by the same people, you are very naive.

            ‘our enemy China’?????

            Who dictates who your enemy is?

            Does China go around the planet carrying out the genocide script, in all nations she does not agree with?

          unfortunately, german money is not widely used like the us dollar, the only life line the us dollar has is that its still uses/traded internationally, if that stop or slowed, dollar will fall in a toilet like a tissue paper, sad part is, most countries are vassals and wont do that

          maybe china can slowed it down, but the world need to follow in order to succeed

        However, how many nations are turning their backs on the reserve currency and trading in other currencies?

      Do believe Russia has the most powerful military. 2nd largest, but, most powerful. US largest and most expensive, but, not most powerful. Both Russia and US being nuclear triad nations, with Russia holding the most nuclear warheads, plus hypersonic weapons, in active service. China, has the largest army, but, is the 3rd largest military. She has only just joined the club of nuclear triad nations together with Russia and US. That means the three have nuclear defence, land, sea and air based, unlike other nations with nuclear weapons and systems.

      Do believe the new Chinese submarines are a lot better than the poor old girls the US roll out?

    Old school but reliable.
    Still no match for the Akula or the Yasen.

      Just saying about Russian submarines.

  • AM Hants

    Prefer Russian submarines. Larger range of classes, plus, on top of their replacement programme, all classes.

    Isn’t the old girl on her last legs? Out of 62, and the last one built in 1996, 30 have been retired. 32 still active, but almost 3 decades old and rather nosy. How many of those 32 are actually in working condition? How many waiting to be fixed? Not the best of submarines to be showcasing.
