The deputy head of a Chinese military academy told an audience in Shenzhen last month that tensions in the South China Sea could be resolved by sinking a pair of U.S. aircraft carriers, reports said…

Another way to go would be with the USA sinking ALL their vessels in their home ports.

Problem solved.

Or a typhoon wiping out those 'islands'.

If the 3 Gorges Dam were to be breached it would wipe out millions and a large part of China's industry.

Seems to me the Japanese said something similar prior to attacking Pearl Harbor.

He said sinking one carrier would kill 5,000 and sinking two would double that number.

The Chinese are good at math!

I thought it was Rum, Bleeped texty and the Lash. Those used to be mainstays for relieving tensions at sea.

Because there wouldn't be a China left to cause any tensions!

Anyone want to find out how long it takes the USN to sink a couple of islands?

I think it's time to unleash the world's funniest joke.

@Ghostrunner: 30 minutes or less, and the next on is free.

If we weren't Americans we just might hit them first. That would really give the world something to think about. However, we are Americans and would never think of doing such a thing.

This is comedy gold.

Sorry, butchered the joke. Should read:

"Delivered hot, fresh, to your door in 30 minutes or less and the next one is free!"
