US concerned over China’s rapid development of new weapons

Duh.

Some us have been warning of this for YEARS.

“US defence secretary Robert Gates says China’s rapidly developing defence capabilities are worrisome to the US.”

“They [China] Gates Sucks Up To The Chineseclearly have potential to put some of our capabilities at risk,” Gates told reporters traveling with him to Asia. “We have to pay attention to them, we have to respond appropriately with our own programs.”

“Gates is trying to coax Chinese military leaders into more regular discussions with the US.”

Our political leaders and our generals have either (1) been asleep at the switch, or (2) have been criminally negligent, or (3) have been hopelessly naive for years. Pathetic.

Such is the danger of deluding ourselves that the Chinese think like we do.
