    China is doing some pretty incredible engineering feats lately. Did you see that bridge they built? And it has an under water tunnel for a high-speed tram underneath it. I think it’s double the size of the next biggest bridge in the world. I don’t know it might just me. I’m as American as they come, but something tells me we better figure out pretty quick how to get along with the Chinese. Because they are not a Third World country anymore. One could even argue their technologically, passing everyone by.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    governments can build some pretty much anything when they don't need the approval of the people or anybody else.

    A great deal of their technology was obtained through industrial espionage from Western industries.

    Many believe that, but my opinion is, that's exaggerated.
    I think that because, if they're stealing so much technology, then the countries they're stealing from should be more advanced than China and they're not.
     
    Numb Thanks this.

    I see where you are coming from, but it's mostly under reported. Take for instance the J-20. It's a stealth fighter without any doubt based on the F-22 Raptor. It fails to compete with the Raptor because it's avionics can't compare. You don't design and aircraft if you can't pull the entire thing off. It's 100 percent espionage.
     
    Numb and Chinatown Thank this.

    Every up-and-coming nation has "stolen" from more advanced nations. The U.S. "stole" from Europe. The Japanese "stole" from Europe by sending students to the best European universities. And now the Chinese.
