A New Arms Race?

Great to see that China now has the capability to shoot down satellites (here). That should come as good news to democratic governments and mobile phone companies all over the world.

It must only be a matter of time now before a head-on confrontation with the US occurs. The key reason made for this not happening is the interdependence of their economies and the high level of trade between the two. However, this assumes that the quasi-communist regime in China cares for the well being of its citizens - a big assumption - and that relations with the US are the key to its long-term economic future.

With around a billion people, it dwarfs the United States and makes Britain look like a pimple on a panda's bottom. I for one will be learning Mandarin as soon as possible. Now what's Chinese for "yes sir"!
