The new Chinese aircraft carrier Shi Lang has started her sea trials. Taiwan has just announced development of a carrier-busitng missile. What's going on?
Early August 2011 sees her first open-sea trials, carrying the name ‘Shi-Lang’
Some observers doubted that China would finish the project, but those who can begin to understand the Chinese mentality know that they seek to surpass the United States economically, politically and militarily, and have actively been building their strengths in all these arenas.
