    Can someone explain to me why the no-carriers policy regarding the Japanese self defense navy is still a political impasse. Isn't it widely regarded at this point that they will be fitted to deploy F-35s in the near future, at which point they are de facto aircraft carriers anyway?

    It's not a carrier unless it's classified as such. These days lots of warships can carry multiple aircraft, this does not automatically make them aircraft carriers.

    Is there a technical reason why everything that is not Chinese in design or in ownership is a sitting duck to the Chinese or their pompom pals?
