China: A Nation of Shooters

While many here have spent a fair bit of time poo-poo'n the Chinese's first baby steps in to carrier aviation, I think the engineer-heavy USN mind has largely missed the point - there is a lot more going on here.

It looks like the Chinese get it. They get the symbology, the images, the significance of the milestone.  They know there is a lot more to do - but they are not focused on the right-now.

While we have spent a lot of time and money diminishing our national capital - from "Global Force For Good" to appologizing for our power, to begging for a 1,000-ship volunteer international navy to do our bidding (har, har, snark), to intentionally keeping our CVN away from Libya so our allies could play top-dog while they empied their shallow bunkers - the Chinese continue to build, and message.

The Chinese people get it. Think about it. Here's what I mean.

Via The Atlantic - guess what this guy is doing besides post-modern cat-blogging?

Yep, he is a P-3 guy on a disassociated sea tour ... no wait ... no ... he is just the cheeky part of what has become an organic Chinese meme.  A meme of  ...

They get it. Good for China, and I am glad to see that they are enjoying something that they should be proud of.

Anyone have any NIMITZ memes we can counter this with?

Hat tip PK.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
