DailyDirt: Never Get Involved In A Land War In Asia...?
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
While there has been a lot of talk about the threat of cyberwarfare, there should probably be more concern about actual warfare and new secret weapons that can shoot things that explode. Not to be too paranoid, but the US has been focused on terrorism for the last several years, but regular armies/navies/etc haven't been standing still. Here are just a few possible examples.
- A Chinese aircraft carrier has been spotted by satellites in the Yellow Sea. Some people think it'll still be years before China's navy catches up to the US, but it's pretty hard to say exactly how advanced China's super-secret navy actually is right now. [url]
- China is usually known for its Great Wall being visible from space, but there are some other weird structures that haven't been explained yet. These strange formations can be seen via Google Maps, and they *could* be weird pranks like crop circles. Or not. [url]
- Submarine technology is supposed to be really stealthy, but what ever happened to the Chinese sub that surprised the USS Kitty Hawk? In 2006, a Chinese submarine surfaced within 5 miles of the US carrier, but foreign subs shouldn't be able to do that... [url]
