US government funded a research group, RAND Corporation, for a study that found out US government aganecies have overstated Chinese military spending, and in one case it overstated 71% higher.
The whole world knew that US government agencies have overstated China's military spending for years. But US government needs to spend money to have private research group to do a study to find out that. What a bunch of morons! No wonder the avergae school IQ level in this country is getting lower every year.
And because PROC is developing a powerful ground based laser ASAT weapon, USA should invest another $100B on MIRACL, right?
The problem is that ground based laser is ineffective against satellite. It is physics. Similarly, a submarine in open ocean is sitting duck.
If you are doing business in Taiwan, a business needs government connection, such as arms sales, you will know him. He even open a business consulting outfit just for this purpose.
If you are CSB government official, DPP offical, you will know him. You know him even you are an old KMT official. He "claimed" he knew every important people in Washington, too.
Everyone knows him, I even had dinner with him once.
But, for God's sake, no matter which side you are at, don't quote or trust what this idiot said.
Well, I am glad that tsmstrong is certainly learning.
There are more things he should learn:
Before he quotes anything, he should first to know what he is quoting. For example, he should find out who is "John Tkacik Jr"? What he does for living? What is connection between he and Taiwan CSB governmnet, especially his relationship with DPP.
I didn't say John is not witty, charming or even maybe a caring and sensitive gay lover. I didn't say he is better or worse than Bill Gertz either. But, boy-o-boy, please don't embarass yourself by quoting what that idiot said. Even CSB himself wants to stay away from that idiot after the election last year.
To quote what John Tkacik Jr is a clear indication of ignorance.
Just to remind you of your own posts so you can see how much you can be benefited from sucker. No harm feeling, everyone on this board knew that:

Why do they ramp up the number based on purchasing power? What does this mean?

I see your point. Hopefully, the chinese will take adavantage of the relative peace in the world and use the money for the people. I believe the US should cut back on miltary spending leaving more money for the people. The spending by the US is out of control in a number of ways. The US needs smaller government.
"I think everybody that I know in the United States military and the Department of Defense understands the important role that our space assets play in our national security," Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former head of the Space Command, told the House Armed Services Committee March 10. "One of the biggest issues that we had to deal with was trying to figure out what was happening to a particular capability if the function was interrupted."
Perhaps, you just need to read more. The US always debates the issues becasue of the free media, dual party system, seperation of powers, etc. Think about folks who say they would not make nuclear weapons but they do (N. Korea). What will happen when all countries are capable - they will do. Then they will lists the execuses.
It is quite possible that on the fringe (the US is spending very little money on reseach for affirmative weapons in psace) of first strike capability weapons in space (other than nuclear). Perhaps, other countries are spending more in secret as way to catch up on US military might.
Here is another example:
sucker has been saying US governmnet has exaggerate the GDP and military spending of China. US mass media just recently reported the exactly what sucker said is truth.
I agree that both recent examples show the fine quality of sucker's posts that no one can match. They are "educational"!
Can anyone of the sucker bashers provides us the posts with quality near close to sucker's?
I doubt. If they could do that, they will do it long time ago, instead of sitting there and being scared.
They all have found out their mothers are not virgins!
