China has launched an ambitious plan to build an aircraft carrier, the country has revealed for the first time, in a move that will heighten international scrutiny of the rapid expansion of its naval power.

The decision, which has far-reaching implications for China’s defence strategy and diplomatic relations, was disclosed in a single sentence buried at the end of a lengthy book published by a government agency earlier this year.

China claims that their military expansion is a threat to no one and is merely defense in nature. I believe that is exactly what all communist powers say a few years before they attack someone.

And we the taxpayers are helping them pay for it and other items with our borrowing/repaying from them and the interest we pay them..

While our own infrastructure, and all of it is in decline, and needs attention
