There has been a lot of talk about how China, if the United States were to go to war with them, would beat the United States. This comes from the idea that China has a lot of people and therefore, has a mighty military force. I do not think this is the case. I highly doubt China could beat the United States for one simple reason, navy. Yes the navy will decide who wins a war, and he who commands the sea commands the war.
The United States has invested a great deal of money, more than any other country, on naval power and technology. We have the biggest, strongest, and most technologically advanced navy that the world has ever seen. China does not compare to this power.
So when I hear people say this, or see it written down, I find it very odd and point out that we actually have the numbers, the funds, the power, and the technology to beat China hands down.
