The chinese are there to cause problems for us. Just think if we kill some of them shooting cruise missiles trying to hit Asswad (who we know is hiding underground somewhere by now) then the chinese can make a stink about it.

rubbish, the fed aill just print up a large batch of funny money, and give it to china to pay off the debt we owe them, and we will be done with them. and dont forget that china needs us more than we need them. where else are they going to dump their junk? europe isnt going to buy it, and neither is russia, and india is making their own as is vietnam. so if they start to make noise about demanding that we pay them, we can just say ok then we will set extremely high tariffs on your goods coming to our country, and that will kill the chinese economy.

Sorry, but I can bet if the US gets into armed conflict with China, that would be a very long protracted battle made even worse by the fact that you have a bunch of crazies at the knee of Kim Jong-un ready to invade South Korea when the opportunity presents itself. It's not China we need to worry about, in the end. The North Koreans are brazen, crazy, AND they have their finger on the nuclear detonator. This is a stalemate. If Obama doesn't keep his cool and the crazies in Congress calm down their inner cowboy, this could either lead to WWIII or Cold War II

Oh right, like you morons have successfully prosecuted a naval battle in the last 50 years.

You've still got a commissioned ship being held by a foreign country for over 50 years or had you forgotten? You putz's got so much expendable inventory you can't even keep track of the ones missing?

Have you either fired at or sunk anything worth mentioning, besides your own stuff that is, in the last few decades? The British have.

If, or rather when, you need them they've been there for you. True to your history, you're once again displaying that well known American trait of forgetting your friends while kissing your enemies azzes. You decide to put boots on the ground over there; it'll be your own crap being fired back at you and anyone over there with you. Stupid azzes!

Give the sandbox-bully crap a rest for once.

I'm not sure that's what EdwardA was getting at. On a side note, I don't think the question is "what has the US Navy sunk in the past 50 years", but what can they do? They are more than capable, to argue otherwise is ridiculous.
