Mattis in China - Nice Memories

Last Update: July 3

While China won't give up an inch of its territorial claims in the South China Sea, US defense secretary Mattis will find it hard to forge an agreement that might please his boss Donald Trump. This could be the reason why the Chinese surrounded Mattis with especially beautiful army women as some kind of a cosolation prize and a reminder for the days of his retirement.


Cheer up, old comrade in arms !

我首艘国产核航母开始“试手” 俄罗斯送来两份大礼

China's first homemade aircraft carrier began with a "practical test".
Russia delivered two big presents.

It's about China's intention to construct a nuclear powered icebreaker with the help of Russian technology and which came to China in the frame of "two big Russian presents". The use of Russian technology in a nuclear powered icebreaker hints as well at the origin of Russian and US aircraft carrier drive technology because the application of nuclear drive technology in icebreakers can be seen as a first "practical test" for further military purpose.
