The Headlines in the L.A.Times on January 7th read: “China’s development of stealth fighter takes U.S. by surprise.” The opening line was, “The emergence of what is said to be a prototype jet, along with news of advances on an anti-ship missile, raises concerns about China’s military intentions and the threat it poses to the U.S. in the Pacific.”
What the article did not say was this:
The United States spends 10 times the amount that China spends on War preparations – 800 billion versus 80 billion a year. This does not include the 200 billion a year that the U.S. spends on its current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Add this and the actual expenditure goes to to 12 times. We should factor in the fact that China has over four times the population of the United States (1.340 million versus 311 million). Therefore the United States spends a little over 50 times per person as China does on its military. That is the main reason why China is becoming richer and the United States poorer year by year.
Think about this, the Chinese develop a single weapon system that the United States developed thirty years ago and that is supposed to be cause for alarm? What incredible war propaganda. It is obviously designed to keep people scared and the Pentagon budget from being cut.
