    Default The race begins

    It is a race. Do not under estimate the quality of their shipyards and the eventual power of their navy.
    These things take time to build up. Maybe 20 to 30 years.

    Japan had a magnificent navy in the past. Not just the hardware, but including the quality navy personnel manning the ships. In WW2, Japan had about 20 to 30 aircraft carriers and countless battleships, destroyers, cruisers, gunboats, etc. 2nd best Navy in the world after USA. They thrashed the Russian Navy at Tsushima Straits in1905 and the British Navy (Repulse & Prince of Wales) in 1941 in combat.

    Oh, and we invited the Abe guy to come and talk. He claims to want to talk peace.

    If I remember my history... and I think I do... its their Airforce that sinked the Battleship Prince of Wales... and Battlecruiser Repulse...

    If I have a neighbor like China... I would built up my military strength too...

    Then Singapore men should start preparing. Certain sauna clubs recently mentioned in the press could be a starting point. And finally, Section 377 of Penal Code needs a review to legalize such patriotic acts

    Some might take whatever they can get, others will prefer younger groups. But hey, look at the bright side: with such changed preferences the Japanese Army will not perform mass executions anymore...

    You can also use the Jade Rabbit to help you in your preparation and stretching exercises.

    The two images have a common link.

    In 1893 (when this pathetic stone boat was built using money siphoned from funds meant for Chinese navy) China thought it was still a powerful nation. Within the next two years 1894-1895 China lost the first Sino-Japan war.

    In 2012, PRC launched an obsolete 2nd hand retrofitted aircraft carrier with much fanfare. Again PRC thinks it has a powerful navy.

    PRC navy is weak. It needs to rapidly expand its navy year-on-year for the next 20 to 30 years.
