Are We Losing The Arms Race With China?

China point blank told us, in Alaska, that they no longer think the United States is the world power. They feel we can no longer operate from a position of strength. China has been building up its cities and is looking to expand its empire. They are building up their military to ensure they can do as they please. So you’d think we would be matching them to at least maintain our standing, but it appears Biden is not worried.

China commissioned 60,000 tons worth of major vessels earlier this month, officially putting into service a new nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, a guided-missile cruiser, and an amphibious helicopter carrier on the 72nd anniversary of its Navy.

The unprecedented triple commissioning was carried out in a ceremony held at the Yulin naval complex near the city of Sanya on the southern Chinese island of Hainan. Yulin is the main naval base of the South Sea Fleet of the People’s Liberation Army Navy. The fleet’s area of responsibility lies in the waters of the nearby South China Sea.

Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the ceremony, which saw the Type 075 (Yushen-class) amphibious helicopter carrier Hainan, the Type 055 (Renhai-class) guided-missile cruiser Dalian and the Type 094 (Jin-class) nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Changzheng-18 join the PLAN.”

U.S. military planners say China may invade Taiwan in the next six years, and former naval officers expect a war over Taiwan could spread to Australia, Japan, and even the Indian Ocean. Australian defense minister Peter Dutton told reporters Sunday a conflict between Taiwan and China “should not be discounted.”

Republicans suggest a larger navy and defense budget would meet the rising threat from China. It remains unclear, however, if the Biden administration will stay the course and build a larger U.S. fleet, as early signals from the White House indicate a stagnant defense budget.”

Biden’s inaction is going to give China all the time it needs to build up its military. Soon China will overpower us if we are not careful. We can only hope Dems start thinking about our future and start building up our military at least to keep up with the communist nation.
