“According to reports, the hypersonic vehicle is designed to detach from one of China’s existing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) at a near-space altitude and then accelerate to speeds 10 times the speed of sound during its descent towards its target.”“根据报道，这种高超音速导弹被设计以中国现役的洲际导弹为投送载具，在临近空间高度释放，并加速到十马赫的速度，飞向目标区。”
are you sure the piece that is falling at Mach-10 is not a piece of Chinese junk metal falling off its antique ICBM and accelerated to Mach-10 simply by the gravity? last time I checked, are not Chinese supposedly only capable of stealing, designing and making junks that will either fall apart or simply will not work/takeoff?你敢肯定那个以十马赫速度坠落的东西，不是中国古董一般的洲际导弹上掉落的废铁——仅仅是被重力加速到十马赫的吗？我上回来这，还不都是一片中国只会剽窃，设计和制造要么不能用要么四分五裂的废品的声音么？
jokes aside — let us get serious for some strategies talk —
In this generation, we must establish a 3 way nuclear parity and MAD among China, Russia and America, asap, for the sake of our children and for the survival of human race on this earth in this century. A 3 way triangular MAD is naturally, inherently and mathematically more stable than a two way MAD between America and Russia. Can you find a single stable geometric solid or shape that is less than 3 sided?
It is very un-natural, inherently less prone to world peace, to have a two way MAD between US and Russia and it is absolutely abhorible and unthinkable for human race to allow any one single country to dominate militarily.美俄这种双边的MAD能力是极不自然和对世界和平不利的，而且对人类来说，由着一个国家来取得军事上我绝对优势，是更加可怕和不堪设想的。
With 3 way nuclear MAD, no single country among the 3 will ever try to start a war with the other or try to dominate any one of the other two militarily, because the end result will be the two fighting the war will be mutually assuredly destroyed, and the 3rd one left standing will dominate the world; so in game theory, we will have a 3 way lasting peace and equilibrium.在三边的MAD体系下，三国中没有一个国家会试图向另一国挑起战争，因为战争的结果会是两败俱伤，第三国存活下来并主宰世界。因而在博弈理论中，我们会形成一个三边的持久和平和均势。
MAD deterence already exists between USA and China, Russia and China and USA and Russia.
What matters is how a country exploits other opportunities while not DIRECTLY engaging with other superpowers.
ah duh, what was that you’re saying? can you give the cliff note version?

China is in clear and present danger posted by the significant threats from the US. China should massively pour money into its defense.
China has to be clear that the US can maintain its lead only because it has the powerful military and its world-reserve currency. The two are supported synergistically. Once China can break one of the two factors, the US will decline…中国面临着来自美国的明确和现实的威胁，中国应当对其国防砸下大笔金钱。中国应该清楚，美国能够占据领导地位全凭它强大的军事力量和美元的世界货币地位。此二者是相互依存的。一旦中国打破其中一个的优势，美国就会垮掉...
Environmental remediation, reducing pollution, shrinking the wealth gap (a problem in every society), IP law reform and stopping SOE support to the detriment of small/medium businesses, shadow banking reforms, and working out compromises with China’s neighbors to develop and share resources is what the CCP should be doing.
One wonders if the CCP will kick off a “foreign adventure” (AKA “wag the dog”) with one if its neighbors to rally the populace, if the internal pressures become too much in the coming years.Reply
G.H. made in china = cheap and crappy中国制造=廉价和垃圾
@G.H. Except that China will continuously and rapidly improve over the years. Fortunes often changes.GH，只可惜将来中国仍会继续快速地向前发展。风水轮流转。
You were probably too young then to know that soon after WW2, Japan made electric bulbs were the joke of the day as it will definitely blow within 2 weeks of use.
In the mid 40′s, 50′s and 60′s, only UK’s GEC bulbs and products eg radios and fridges or Philips products (generally European products) were considered reliable. British brands like Hercules & Raleigh bicycles or Norton or Triumph motor bikes (or the Italian Ducatis) were the preferred brands. Whereas the Yamahas or Suzukis were problematic.
你可能太幼齿了点，不知道在二战刚结束不久，日本制造的电灯泡就是那个时代的一个笑话，点上两星期不到它自己就爆炸了。在40、50、60年代中，只有通用电气的灯泡和其他电子制品如收音机和冰箱，或是飞利浦的产品（大部分欧洲货）被认为是可靠的。英国的Hercules & Raleigh自行车，或是Norton 和Triumph牌的摩托车（或是意大利的Ducatis）是人们喜欢的品牌。当时雅马哈和铃木还是问题多多。
Ha..during my very early years in school, we often make jokes about some of our teachers who owned Toyota cars. When the Toyota car paintwork faded, we could literally see the green “Milo” brandmarks surfaced, as the body were often made from MILO scrap tin metals. Many of their bodyshells completely rusted after just a few years. True…I am not joking.哈..在我刚上学那会，我们经常拿买丰田车的个别老师开玩笑。当丰田车掉漆时，我们真的就能看到下面绿色的MILO标志（好像是个罐头产品——译者注），因为车身材料经常是用来自MILO的废薄铁板制成的。大部分车的车身会在几年内就完全锈蚀，千真万确...我没在开玩笑。
European brands like Austins, Prefects, Mini-Cooper, Landrovers, Mini Minors, Volvos, Alpha Romeos etc were the leading reliable brands.
However, the Japanese has come a long way and today their Toyotas, Hondas, Yamahas, Sonys, Matsushitas etc are the world’s top brands. Top quality and reliable.
Today ?….Fast upcoming and giving the Japanese a run for their money are the South Koreans with their LGs, Samsungs, Hyundais, Kias, etc.
Within the next 20 to 30 years, do you think the Chinese will have a fair chance of emulating the same success ?
欧洲的牌子，例如Austins, Prefects, 迷你库柏, 路虎, Mini Minors, 沃尔沃, 阿尔法罗密欧等等，都是排在榜首的人们信赖的品牌。然而，日本人走过了漫长的道路，现今他们的丰田、本田、索尼、松下等等都是世界顶尖的品牌，有顶尖的品质和可靠性。当下呢？快速崛起后跟日本人抢占市场的是韩国人和他们的三星、LG、现代、起亚等等。再过二三十年，你不认为中国人很有可能复制这一成功的范例吗？
东洋货回KLJapanese products were called 东洋货 which is synonymous to copycat, cheap, crappy, flimsy, unreliable, ugly, lousy imitator, …日本制造的产品被称作“东洋货”，跟抄袭、廉价、蹩脚、劣质、不可靠和丑陋、讨厌的抄袭作是同义语...
bob回H.G you yanks failed twice with HTV-2. LOL the Chinese, on the other hand, is 1 for 1, or 100% success rate. LOL so what does that say about made in usa?Reply 你们美国佬试验HTV-2两次都搞砸了，哈哈，另一方面，中国人一次就成功，100%的成功率，哈哈，这又让人怎么说美国制造呢？

Hypersonic delivery systems are unlikely to be used against other great powers simply because they are capable of responding in kind and because of the chances of a miscalculation. Countries without the ability to respond are going to be the likeliest targets.Reply

Comrade TDog, there is absolutely no reason to be modest. Our latest weapons and technologies has put us a few steps ahead of the USA. Today as we speak we can certainly bring to USA to its knees if war breaks out. In reality we can hit the USA at will while preventing the imperialist to do the same on us.Economically the need us more than we need them and now even militarily we are superior to them only thing is they have more weapons than us but soon we will able to overtake them even on those conventional weapons.TDog同志，完全没必要谦虚。我们最新的武器和技术已经让我们比美国先行了一步。就在我们说话的当儿，如果战争爆发我们完全可以把美国打的跪下求饶。在现实中，我们可以想打美国就打美国，而让帝国主义者拿我们没辙。经济上美有求于我甚于我有求于美，如今我们甚至在军事上也超过了他们。只有一点是他们的家伙比我们多，但不用多久我们就能在常规武器上也超过他们。
Tit for Tat回楼上的高级黑
Since you have taken the title ‘admiral’, and assuming you are not an imposter, what are your thoughts about your South West neighbour India? Do you want to bring it down to its knees over Arunachal and Ladakh? Remember, they also have this hypersonic technology in the name of Shourya and K-4 as ballistic missiles and soon to be Brahmos version 2 as cruise missile…..Who knows, 75% of your naval fleet may get submerged in East and South China seas even before they leave the harbour incase you decide to up the ante in Arunachal/Sikkim/Uttarakhand/Ladakh……既然你挂着海军上将的军衔，并且假定你不是个冒牌的，你怎么看你们的邻国印度呢？你想让印度也在阿纳鲁恰尔和拉达克问题上也下跪？要记住，他们也有同样的高超声速技术，就是Shourya和K-4弹道导弹和即将出现的布拉莫斯II型巡航导弹...谁知道呢？你们75%的海军舰艇可能会在驶离港口前就在东海和南海被击沉了，如果你们敢打阿纳鲁恰尔和拉达克锡金、北阿坎德邦的主意的话....（浮尸国人到哪里都是以吹牛著名的）
