NATO is preparing actively a close of the Strait of Hormuz

Oil Sands@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

Almost the entire world believes that NATO and Israel will launch a war to Iran, as long as this Persian country does not abandon its suspected nuclear weapons program. The only question is when this will happen.

Most analysts think Iran is slipping involuntarily towards an abyss. Dec. 24, Iran’s navy started a 10-day exercise east of the Strait of Hormuz that involved the use of submarines, ground-to-sea missile systems, naval mines and torpedoes. Dec. 27, Iran’s Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi said through IRNA that Iran will block oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz if sanctions are imposed on its crude exports.

Over Iran’s naval drill in the Strait of Hormuz since Dec. 24, NATO seemed not to concern much. Analysts believe that is because NATO has known deeply about Iran’s forces and has also had powerful-enough strengths and a mature combat-plan to deal with Iran’s block on the Strait of Hormuz once it has decided to strike Iran.

Some Analysts even believe it is not a simple event that Canada pulled out of Kyoto Protocol in mid of December 2011, because it can also been read as a sign that NATO is preparing actively a temporary close of the Strait of Hormuz. The Alberta of Canada is a province full of tar sands. This makes Canada a country with the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world, only next to Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

The Truth on Iran Shot Down Unmanned U.S. Drone

U.S. drone shot down by Iran@peterpeng210.blogspot.com
These days one Chinese main website posted a blog-analysis regarding the cause of the U.S. unmanned UAV ‘shot down’ by Iran. I feel the analysis is interesting, so I translated the main part of it into English below to share with my readers:

Novemeber 26, U.S. attack-helicopters air-struck one Pakistani military station and killed 24 Pakistani troops. Therefore, Pakistan troops blocked angrily NATO’s transportation-line in Pakistan and demanded U.S. to clear out of the Shamsi air-base in Pakistan within 15 days. The United States began to play its old tricks again saying it was an incident and a tragedy, but no apologize. It was rather arrogant from U.S. and let people recall the incident of the Sino-U.S. Hainan air collision.

Because the United States refused to apologize to Pakistan, the second day we heard U.S. military forces began to move-out from the Shamsi Base. Just the move-out caused the later U.S. drone incident. This base is located in Pakistan near the borders of the three countries, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. U.S. drones had taken off and refueled there for operations against Islamic militants in Afghanistan and some Pakistani targets. Pakistan was unhappy to the base for a long time and was offended to extreme this time, so they ordered the Americans to get out. In the other words, the drone ‘shot down’ by Iran was from the Shamsi base. Based on above, the cause of the drone-down incident can be seen as follows,

The second day, the U.S. troops began to move out. The drones are remote controlled by ground-personnel. We have never seen a move of a military base, but we have experienced many home moves of ourselves--what a mass: This needed to be moved away, and that needed to deal with; This needed to be discarded, and that needed to be handed over; This needed to call a truck, and that needed to hire labours. One word: a total mass. In this massy situation, the drone was still flying in the sky! Even you can tell me that the military staff that moment had still how much mind on the flying drones, and the drones in sky had still how much care from the base? We all know, this kind of drones is very advanced, so they need high-standard services from the ground. Once its base ignored the drones, it is easy to understand why one of them had an incident and dropped in Iran by itself.

Why does U.S. concern deeply Chinese military development?

Annual Report to Congress of U.S.@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

On August 24th, the office of the Secretary of the U.S. Defence published its Annual Report to Congress involving Chinese Military and Security Developments. As usual, Chinese military dismissed this report by saying that Pentagon is playing up ‘China Threat’. To understand why does U.S. concern deeply Chinese military development, let’s use the Korean War (1950-1953) as an example to analyze.

When China’s first generation leader Mao Zedong announced the establishment of PRC in Beijing in October 1949, U.S. had no plan to choke this new regime. Oppositely, U.S. was trying to build a good relationship with Mao due to a deep disappointment to Chiang Kai-shek’s incompetence during China’s civil war (1946-1949). To move its strategic main point to Europe, U.S. had once retreated its forces from Taiwan Strait. That period there were two roads for Mao to choose. One was to build new ties with U.S. and recover quietly China from damages caused by the bloody civil war between Mao and Chiang. The other was to go closely with its communist neighbor the Soviet Union. Due to Mao’s ideology, he chose the second road.

In 1950 North Korean supported by the Soviet Union invaded South Korea. To save South Korea, the army of United Nations headed by U.S. cut into Korean battlefields from Inchon in September 1950. The landing forces of United Nations quickly defeated the invader and drove the enemy towards the Korean-Chinese border. In such situation, Stalin, the top leader of the Soviet Union, hoped Mao could send his soldiers into Korea to drive U.S. and United Nations out of Koreas. To become an important role in communist family, Mao sent hurriedly and covertly Chinese army into Korean battlefields in 1950 even without a good preparation. In the battle of Chosin Reservoir, 4000 Chinese soldiers were frozen to death because they had had no time to get heavy winter clothes before they were put into the –30-centigrade battlefield. Mao cheated his people that Chinese soldiers were battling for North Korea was because U.S. wanted to use Korea as a jump board to invade China.

The unexpected Chinese invasion totally shattered United Nations soldiers’ dreams that they could go home for the Christmas of 1950. To seal Mao’s regime, U.S. dispatched its 7th fleet back into Taiwan Strait. Because U.S. was moving its main strategic point to Europe during the period of Korean War, armed with heavy arms from the Soviet Union, China had luckily signed with U.S. in 1953 an armistice that restored the border between the two Koreas near the 38th Parallel. Even today, because of the propaganda of Chinese government, most of Chinese people still believe China fought in the Korean War was to stop U.S. invading China from North Korea. But the other side of the Korean War, U.S. and its allies, certainly know they were unexpectedly beaten by China at first and then passively dragged into the bloody battles against China in Koreas for three years.

In the eyes of U.S. and its allies, the Korean War exposed Mao regime’s aggression to the world. Today, what they understand to China is today’s Chinese government obviously still have no introspective ability to know some big mistakes made by their former top leaders, including what Chinese military did in the Korean War. A worry from U.S. and its allies is China may repeat same mistakes to the world again because it has poor ability to evaluate correctly what it did to the world in the past. That is why U.S. concerns more Chinese military development than a military development of any another country.

Will China’s first aircraft carrier be used in South China Sea?

First Chinese Aircraft Carrier@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

China’s first aircraft carrier, the ex-Soviet Varyag, is waiting for its sea trails in the Dalian port of China. Analysts believe it will not combat for a possible conflict in South China Sea even it turns mature in the future.

That is because the slip-jump deck of the Varyag cannot support a fixed-wing early warning aircraft to take off, the carrier has to use early warning helicopters, which have service ceilings only 4000 meters. With the probes on board, they are only able to detect invaders under the height of 8000 meters in a range of 150 km only. Spartly Islands are more than 1000 km away from the mainland of China. It is difficult for the Varyag there to get a support from China’s land-based AWACS, for example, KJ-2000 that has service ceiling over 12,000 meters with detective range over 300 km.

Because of above, the Varyag will possibly combat under a support of land-based forces for a dispute of Taiwan Straits or Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands after its fledgling period. The Varyag is a conventionally powered carrier with endurance around 40 days, so it will also be used for China’s humanitarian rescues aboard.

Why did the trains of China Railways High Speed (CRH) 和谐号动车 crash

CRH Crash@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

A train collision occurred at about 8:30 pm Saturday (July 23, 2011) on a bridge near Wenzhou of China when bullet train D301 (modal CRH2-139E) rear-ran into D3115 (modal CRH1-046B), which allegedly lost power after lightning strike. It has killed 35 people and left 192 others injured, as a spokesman of the Ministry of China Railways said.

The accident exposed once again some officials of Chinese Government are used to being boastful rather than doing practical work. According to Baidu Wiki of China, there are five modals of bullet trains running in China high-speed railway networks: CRH1, CRH2, CRH3, CRH5, CRH380A. Their technologies were imported respectively from Canadian Bombardier, Japanese Kawasaki, German Siemens, and French Alstom.

The technologies of the accident-involved bullet trains D301 (modal CRH2) and D3115 (modal CRH1) stemmed from Japan and Canada respectively, although China has announced it has digested all of the core technologies of the five modals of high-speed trains and owned the intellectual properties of them.

With a mix of so many different technologies in the high-speed railways, the harmony of them in railway networks should be carefully dealt with and realized. The collision told us that some officials of China Railways did not obviously do a proper job on it. They pushed rashly a pre-mature thing out due to some officials’ exaggeration for being promoted.

Because the collision happened in the area of China Shanghai Railway Bureau, the top officials of the bureau were dismissed immediately. From the feature of the accident it seams unfair that they were blamed for this disaster. At least they were not the only who should be blamed.

China is actively promoting its technologies of High Speed railways to the world. The accident affected inevitably China’s effort, although the spokesman of the Ministry of China Railways said, "China's high-speed train is advanced and qualified. We have confidence in it.”

Pei Xuecheng 裴学诚:Bruce Lee and My After-school Life

My nephew Pei Xuecheng 裴学诚 is a junior high school student in Shanghai of China. Recently he participated in an English writing contest in his school. Please enjoy his contest writing posted as follows. I am proud of his mature thinking and hard studies in English:

Bruce Lee and My After-school Life—Pei Xuecheng

My today’s life would not be so colourful and perfect if Bruce Lee did not come into my after-school life years ago. I knew Bruce Lee through his movie Way of the Dragon when I was only ten. I still remember the scene clearly when I began to know Bruce Lee for the first time.

That was a weekend afternoon I remember. In that afternoon my parents and I watched this Bruce Lee’s DVD movie at home. What amazed me that moment were not only Bruce Lee’s powerful muscles, but also his unbelievable two-nunchaku skills, which were totally out of my ability of imagination.

Since then, Bruce Lee almost occupied all of my after-school life except the time for my homework daily. I often asked my parents to bring me to bookstores on Saturdays or Sundays for buying storybooks regarding him, and I often went on the Internet at night to search some knowledge about him. I was sad after I knew he had only a short life. I felt exciting when I knew he was a chief editor of five movies, which made him much money. He went sometimes even into my dreams at night to show his strength and power to the world and me.

As I was growing up gradually, I felt that my load of homework from school became heavier and heavier. My mom paid attention to this and began to persuade me not to admire him any more, because she thought that too much time I spent on him would affect my exam-grades at school.

To reduce my mom’s worry, I began to spend more time on homework every day, although Bruce Lee still fascinated me. The only difference was I put him deeper in my heart than before. When I met difficulties in my study at home, his stories always encouraged me to overcome them and say to myself that I should never give up.

When I look back to see my way on study, I found that I would not have made such a great progress if his stories did not come into my after-school life. His stories told me that his success was not built over one night but came from his hard work day by day and his spirit of never giving up to failure he met. One day, I remember, I told to my mom that I was not a kid who was only keen on his Kung-Fu skills but a teenager keen on his spirit too.

I always think that the lessons I take daily at school are extremely useful to me, but who can say what I learned after school from Bruce Lee’s stories are not important? I think Bruce Lee makes my life closer to perfection. My life becomes colourful due to my after-school life, which goes sometimes across Bruce Lee’s stories.

A Wonderland with Jasmine Blossoms 在茉莉花盛开的地方

Zhang Qiping 张其萍@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

It is worth watching the music TV video, A Wonderland with Jasmine Blossoms在茉莉花盛开的地方. This video broadcasts everyday via China Jiangsu TV channel to the entire world.

From the art of view, this five-minute music video is extremely successful. I have lived in North America for many years and am proud of the natural views and environment where I am living, but I still can not help being deeply amazed by the harmonious and paradise-like pictures from the video.

Each time when I watch the video, just like what the singer sings in it, it makes me lost in joyful reveries, although I know that China is confronted with some severe problems on environment and economy, and only 20% of Chinese working citizens have monthly individual incomes over RMB 3000 or USD 462.

The Jiangsu province the video promotes is in the east China and neighbouring my hometown Shanghai, the biggest city of China. If you take the newly built Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail, it will only spend you one hour from its capital city Nanjing to Shanghai.

The singer’s name is Zhang Qiping 张其萍. According to Baidu Wiki, she was born in July of 1982 in Jianhu city, Jiangsu Province, China. She is a national first-class actress of China and a member of China Musician Association. She is now under the flag of China Jiangsu Performing Arts Co., Ltd. and is also studying for a master degree in China Nanjing Art Institute.

Let’s enjoy the music TV film A Wonderland with Jasmine Blossoms as follows. Please full screen and set resolution to 480p for breath-taking views.

Beidou Navigation System goes to perfection

Beidou System@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

Recently, China announced its Beidou development strategy following the successful launch of the eighth Beidou satellite.

Besides the system’s active location function as before, the system will add on the passive location system to be compatible with GPS, GALILIO, and GLONASS. This will greatly expend its both military and civilian usability.

In October 2009 I wrote a comment named Stranded in Shallow Water, Chinese Navy’s Fate. The comment analyzed the disadvantage of Beidou active location system in military utilization. The newly announced Beidou development strategy with passive location system obviously corrected the disadvantage.

According to the strategy, the Beidou system will become a global navigation and positioning system formed with more than 30 satellites by 2020. Even in a civilian role, the system will also greatly benefit China through the business chain it creates on navigation chips, navigation devices manufacturing, etc.

China is now a country, which has the most cell phone users. Next year China will have the most automobile users in the world, the China’s Statistic said.

Those Charming Past Events 那些迷人的往事 told us

General Ding Sheng and his wife (under)
Those Charming Past Events那些迷人的往事@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

China’s political stage is gradually and quietly changing. These days, The China Central TV entertainment channel is airing a TV drama series called Those Charming Past Events 那些迷人的往事. The drama told TV audience a touching story between the heroine Yu Kangmei 于抗美 and the family of the commander of China Southern Military Region during years from 1970s to 1990s.

The drama praised the region commander Yang Sanhu 杨三虎for his charisma and expressed sympathy for his miserable fate. The 30 series TV drama was completed in 2007 but was not allowed to air on CCTV until June of 2010. From the drama people can know the story of the commander of the China Southern Military Region, Yang Sanhu, came from the real life of one of the former commanders of the China Guangzhou Military Region广州军区, Ding Sheng丁盛.

Ding Sheng 丁盛 was born in 1913. In 1955 he was awarded the rank of Major General in China. Between 1969 and 1973 he served as the commander of the Guangzhou Military Region 广州军区. Because of his royalty to Mao Zedong 毛泽东 during the political fighting between Mao and Lin Biao 林彪 in 1972, he was dispatched in 1973 by Mao to the Nanjing Military Region 南京军区as the commander, so as to protect the political base Shanghai of Mao’s wife Jiang Qing 江青 to against Deng Xiaoping邓小平 and Ye Jianying 叶剑英.

After Mao’s death, the China Central Military Committee, which began to be controlled under Deng Xiaoping and Ye Jianying, quarantined Ding Sheng in 1977. In 1982 Ding Sheng was commanded to quit from Chinese military and was fired from Chinese Communist Party. He passed away on September 25, 1999, two years after Deng Xiaoping’s death. That time, the Chairman of the China Central Military Committee was Jiang Zemin 江泽民. On Ding Sheng’s funeral, it was not allowed to called him as Comrade or General. What he could be called was Old Man Ding Sheng.

Now the air of the TV drama series Those Charming Past Events on the China Central TV told us Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin’s influences in Chinese military are fading away after eight-year leading from Hu Jintao 胡锦涛.

China feels happy on its losses in Libya


Basing on the UN Security Council resolution passed on March 17, the allied forces build up by France, Britain, U.S., Canada, and Italy have started military operations to Libya on March 19. China did not block the passing of the resolution. Many people may think China is a total loser on this issue, but analysts believe China still keeps a smiling on.

Since the uprising began in Libya last month, it is true that China suffered large financial losses in Libya. Chinese media showed that 35,860 Chinese left Libya, leaving behind construction materials, machines, vehicles, and project contracts totaling in the billions of dollars. An unbelievable fact in China is that not many Chinese people care about these losses.

As we know, China has the second large GDP in the world and has accumulated huge foreign exchange reserve, but the living standards of most Chinese people have not had a link with the quantum leap of its GDP. Consequently, the China’s financial losses in Libya cannot attract the eyeballs of Chinese people, especially because China is also a country with a single party ruling system and news censoring.

Instead, what did Chinese people see were Chinese government withdrew 35 thousand Chinese citizens out of Libya within one week, four Chinese air-force’s IL-76 transporters took back Chinese workers from Tripoli, and Chinese naval frigate Xuzhou reached Mediterranean for China’s civilian withdraw on sea off Libya. From Chinese media Chinese people also knew that many other countries’ people were abandoned in Libya by their own governments. All of above greatly inspired patriotism in China.

During the recent political chaos in North Africa, what Chinese government worried about is mainly on the stability of its party’s ruling status, but not the financial losses. Uprising in Libya granted Chinese government an opportunity to show its strong side to the world and get good points from its people. Analysts believe Chinese authorities must think that these points are much precious than the financial losses in Libya. That is why analysts say China is happy on its losses there.

What does Israel worry to Iranian naval vessels?

Iranian Kharg Supply Ship@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

Two Iranian naval ships, Alvand Class frigate and Kharg Class supply ship passed through Egypt's Suez Canal into the Mediterranean on February 22 heading for Syria. This is Iran's first naval deployment in the Mediterranean since its 1979 Islamic Revolution. This happened when Israel is anxious about political upheaval in Egypt and other Arab states in North Africa.

Iranian Alvand frigate is a warship that can arm with 4 x C-802 China made anti-ship missiles. The Kharg is a replenishment ship with displacement of 33,000 tons. Analysts believe what Israel worries about is not the frigate but the supply ship to Syria, because Israel may think the 30 thousand ton ship is delivering weapons, which can sneak to the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon and the Hamas in Gaza to against this Jewish state.

On February 22, Israel conducted a successful test of the Arrow 2 ballistic missile defense system off the coast of California and said the defense system can destroy any Iranian missiles. In the Lebanon War of July 2006, Hezbollah fired two C-802 or Iranian Kowsar missiles at Israeli warships. One missile seriously damaged Israeli corvette INS Hanit and killed four sailors on board.

U.S. needs a red China

U.S. and China Reform@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

What kind of China is good for U.S.? Someone may say a democracy China. Actually, a red China benefits U.S. most under current situation.

According to Wikipedia, as of January 31, 2011, the total Public Debt of U.S was $14.13 trillion, account for 96.4% of calendar year 2010's annual GDP of $14.7 trillion. The financial and economical globalization has stuck U.S. in trade deficits since 1976. The trade deficit of U.S. had set on record high in 2006 at 800 billion dollars although it went back to near 400 billion in 2010.

Under so high trade deficits, U.S. has to live on issuing large quantity of U.S. dollar bills and selling huge amount of U.S bonds to the entire world. If there were a new currency, which is strong enough to replace the U.S. dollars, the U.S. economy would ruin over one night.

To escape from this miserable and horrible potentiality, U.S. is desperately looking for new increasing points on economy. U.S. is facing unprecedented competition from the world including China and Europe. Since Euro dollars were established, they have troubled U.S. enough on challenging the leading status of U.S. dollars. Similarly, a democracy China with a robust economy would be a nightmare to U.S.

Thankful to Chinese ruling party for it has no ability to break its own limitation on guiding a political reform under an organized and systematic way, U.S. can luckily keep its amulet to best China---always hinder or attack China by raising an ideological flag. If China had orderly and successfully turned to be a democratic country, U.S. would lose its best ground to depress China’s rise.

Many examples showed that U.S. has been trimming or appeasing today’s China whenever U.S. feels necessary. If China keeps sticking on its unpopular ideology, when its economy grows big enough to attract the world to discard U.S. dollars, under an ideological flag U.S. can choke China’s supply arteries with its worldwide military forces on oceans. This will easily collapse China’s economy ahead U.S gets a fatal trouble. Although this will be the last choice for U.S. to best China on economy, who can say it is not a guaranteed good way for U.S.?

In China there is a saying that “The Monkey King is hard to jump out of the Ru Lai Fo Buddha’s palm 孙悟空难逃如来佛的掌心”. If we use the Monkey King as a metaphor for today’s China, and the Lu Lai Fo Buddha for U.S., China is hard to escape from the control of U.S., as long as China keeps red. U.S. needs a red China.

Why does Confucius stand at Tiananmen Square east

Confucius at Tiananmen@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

January 11, at the east of Beijing's Tiananmen Square, a 9.5-meter high bronze statue of Confucius was setup in front of the National Museum. Why did the Beijing Authorities do this?

There is a saying in China that “Hold the feudal overlord, so as to control his vassals 挟天子以令诸侯”. By holding Confucius, Chinese ruling party is trying to give the international world an impression that this party is passing on and carrying on Chinese traditional culture, and it is functioning as a same role as each dynasty in China’s long historic river. Through the Confucius statue, Chinese Communist Party also emphasizes to the outside world that only the Chinese Communist Party is the unique and the only legal representative of Chinese culture in recent China and the world, and it is just as same as each Chinese ruling social level in each dynasty of Chinese history.

In China’s thousand years of history, there were many great thinkers and educators such as Confucius, Mencius, Laozi, etc., but only Confucius was conferred posthumous honour-titles by each Chinese dynasty starting from 479 B.C, including Republic of China in 1935. Till now, there have been over 300 Confucius Institutes in more than 90 countries. These are why Chinese government and its communist party chose Confucius as a signboard to the world now and set up a statue of him at Tiananmen Square east trying to tell the world the unique and legal representativeness of the Chinese Communist Party in Chinese history.

People should not forget that Chinese President Hu Jintao is also the General Secretary of Chinese Communist Party. By his nature, his past, and his qualifications to the ruling communist party, analysts do not believe there is any possibility that he would/will do anything not good to his party on purpose. Analysts believe Chinese government led by the communist party will still insist on Mao’s thoughts. Confucius is only a coat for Chinese government to dress up for its international role.

Analysts believe Chinese government and its ruling party would never setup a Confucius statue at Tiananmen Square east if it will not benefit but hurt the ruling status of Chinese Communist Party. On the same reason, Chinese President Hu Jintao would not visit a Confucius Institute during his official visit in U.S. last week, if this would/will affect the ruling of his communist party.

Mao Zedong for inside and Confucius for outside. Hold the feudal overlord (Confucius) to control his vassals (other countries’ people and governments) and to pave the way for the communist China going to the world. This stratagem is so good and tricky that not every smart person is able to see the mark it points really to, even the left wing members of the Chinese Communist Party.

Hu Jintao visits U.S.

Obama held dinner with HuObama and Hu@peterpeng210.blogspot.com

Chinese President Hu Jintao landed in the U.S. capital of Washington Tuesday for a four-day state visit. Although the two countries expressed their goodwill to aim at enhancing their positive, cooperative and comprehensive relationship, analysts believe a downturn point in their relationship is still inevitable in the near future. Taiwan issue is still the first obstacle in front of U.S. and China.

During 2010, U.S. operated eight military drills with Asian countries around China. High pressure from outside made China more eagerly develop its military technology. Through this, U.S. may realize that keeping a closer financial and economical relationship with China is a better and easy way for U.S. to control China. This relationship may drive China on to the way of newly changed Tunisia. Some analysts even said that White House’s warm welcome to Chinese President Hu is “covering the dagger with a smile”.

Certainly, China knows that U.S. will keep selling arms to Taiwan, otherwise it means U.S. has to give up Taiwan by its own. That is why some analysts said Chinese President Hu’s goodwill speech at a welcome ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House this time is another “feigning madness without becoming insane”.

J-20, a placebo for New Year’s Eve


On Chinese portal websites these days, some pictures of a Chinese 4th generation fighter called J-20 are fascinating Chinese Internet users. Analysts believe these pictures posted on Chinese personal blogs were intentional leakages from Chinese authority.

Recently, China’s morale was downgraded by the fact that U.S. has stood firmly behind S. Korea and Japan on the issues of Northeast Asia (Yeonpyeong Island and Senkaku Islands). Meanwhile, Russian-Indian joint development on T-50 stealth fighters has worsened the mood for China going into 2011. At this moment, a piece of good news to pop up the morale in China is extremely needed.

It is not new to U.S. that China is pursuing a plan of its 4th generation fighter that is compatible to U.S. F-22 raptor and Russian T-50. The Pentagon has never stopped watching closely the fledgling plan of the Chinese J-20. The Pentagon never doubts that China needs at least 15 years to mature the J-20 technology, f.g., on stealth coating and turbofan vector-engines. It is ridiculous that a country which has no technology to copy Russian Su-33 for aircraft carrier fighters is able to build stealth fighters same as F-22.

Basing on the crystal clear to the development of Chinese J-20 and Russian T-50, U.S. has banned the exports of the F-22 for years and kept non-production of this military plane since 2010. Although the intentional photo-leakage of a China’s J-20 stealth fighter can hardly trick U.S., we can see from the reactions on Chinese portal websites that it has really boosted morale in China. The placebo effect from J-20 granted Chinese Internet users a sound sleep on new year’s eve.
