    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    The combat phase of Desert Storm lasted Jan-17 to Feb-28. During that time, nothing happened to US. But for the China-Taiwan war, economically speaking, China will suffer. Countries will decrease their relationships with China. Sea and air traffic in the SCS, except for the southern most area...

    Fine. Then let Taiwan go. What do you have to lose? Nothing.

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    You did not think before you asked that. You missed the error in your attempt to deflect. But the reason you deflect is because you know the answer: Zero. China would lose nothing tangible because China had nothing tangible on Taiwan for the last 60 yrs. So in the end, your question is...

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    Looks like you are like the other guy -- not much of a reader. Back in WW II, the US could not bear a prolonged air war against Japan, no matter how much industrial capacity the US have. Strictly on the technical front, the US could have. But a war is not merely conducted on the technical...

    What for? What are the tangible losses to China if Taiwan declares independence?

    What do you think would happen if the US did not have a ground war in Desert Storm?

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    I work with engineers from both sides of the strait. Over drinks, the Chinese guys admitted at the 'regular people' level, no one cares if Taiwan declares independence. However, once they return to China, then they sort of have to care because the government sort of forces them to care, at least...

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    When I was active duty, I pulled 'Victor Alert' duty. That is where a few jets were fully loaded with nukes readied for war. The first time I actually touched a B61 free fall bomb, it affected me profoundly. The jet carried two of them, and in my hand, I carried the navigation cartridge with...

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    If China do not war on Taiwan, China can kiss the SCS goodbye -- PERMANENTLY. No amount of ancient maps China can print or artificial islands can help the claim. Global powers will increase their military presence in the SCS to secure its freedom from Chinese control. On the other hand, China's...

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    No, we got better. And the analogy is that China is the US while Taiwan is Iraq. Except this time, Taiwan is qualitatively better than Iraq while China is not comparable to US. That make China and Taiwan more problematic than US-Iraq. Am willing to guess you do not read much? :D

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    I took a few weeks off for vacation and to take care of some family business. But before that time off, I attended a semiconductor conference. There were a few Taiwanese participants and the small talks among the conference members turned to the tension between China and Taiwan. Without going...

    And yet there were ground conflicts in both. If China do not invade Taiwan, China lose.

    Taiwan Warns It Will "Fight To Very Last Day" If China Attacks As US Warship Transits Strait

    Why not look up how much ordnance we dropped on Iraq in Desert Storm and see if China can match? And still note that we drove to within 100 miles of Baghdad before we backed off.

    Am going to put a little bit of reality here. First, am USAF veteran. F-111 Cold War, then F-16 Desert Storm. I know what 9 g feel like. :enjoy: Now...A fully loaded F-16 configured for strike, meaning bombs and a couple missiles for self defense, will be g-limited to less than what a trained...

    Who invented the aeroplane

    The Wright Brothers invented the aircraft. The criteria: - Heavier than air - Controlled - Powered - Sustained All of them must be present and working in concert.

    United Airlines Boeing 777 N772UA UA328 Denver Honolulu Engine Failure

    From reading these ignorant people, the 'logic' goes this way: I bought the airplane from Boeing. I did shitty maintenance. The airplane crashed. Therefore, it is Boeing's fault. Am not saying the cause is from maintenance. But I have been saying about aviation mishaps, since '09 when I was...

    Like I said before -- you brought on old news. The Ho-229 had only ONE flight in 1944 and that flight was as a GLIDER. So explain to us all how can that make the aircraft a true low radar observable platform? What Reimar wanted is not the same thing as what the aircraft could do. I want to fly...

    Military aviation issues. Something you do not have because you were essentially a conscript reject by the PLA. Exposing PDF Chinese bullshit. Lol.
