I have to agree, I don't see any real reason for China to be allowed to do this. It is likely a ploy to take control of the land around the canal they will build as well as militarize it. It is further north than the Panama Canal and will reduce travel of goods though there which will benefit the Chinese. If you look at how long we controlled the Panama Canal this is cause for concern.

Also allowing this route through the largest freshwater lake in Latin America should have ended this discussion.

It seems like China doesn't give a damn about preserving nature. Their cities are polluted as hell and they obliterate massive mountain ranges to expand development.

I get it, China wants to stage a future conflict with the US. If that is the case, then they are dumber than I thought.

Didnt say that, but look at what is going on in the world today, a world war in the future isnt out of the realm of possibility. And if that were to happen, we arent about to give the Chinese access to the Panama Canal to gain access to the atlantic ocean. It makes sense.

Is it possible? Yeah...I guess.

But is highly unlikely.

Well tbh they could likely own us in a war. Remember what made us such a strong military in the 1st place? Production. Which in America our industry is nowhere near what it once was. China could likely out produce us if there were to be a conflict between us and they have been taking our military vehicles and making their own versions for some time now. To be the best you have to beat the best. They want the respect and clout that the United States has all over the world. Not to mention how much do we owe them now that we can't payback? China owns the US.

I kept this out of political talk but we should all be aware that our military is not a priority anymore and a weakened military will lead to the fall of the American Empire.

This is a joke right? The US military would absolutely destroy China in a conventional conflict anywhere not on the Asian continent. Our nuclear submarine fleet alone would destroy the Chinese blue water Navy in the mater of a few days.

Being a retired Navy Submariner for 20 years, I can agree with this statement. Two of our Seawolf Class Subs could take out China's whole Submarine fleet. Yes the Seawolf Class is absolutely that BADASS. I know this due to being and ex-torpedoman stationed aboard the U.S.S. Connecticut (SSN-22) for 6 years.

I wish they would have built more than 3 Seawolfs. The Virgina class seems to be world class but the Seawolfs seem to be that much better.

Their man power is fierce, I will give them that. When it comes to technology though, we would own them in more ways than one. No one needs a million soldiers if you have a bomb capable of wiping out entire cities or regions. Of course the use of that kind of capability would require a world war, and I am sure no one wants a piece of that. Not even the Chinese. Remember as soon as Kim Jung Crazy started acting out, they were the first ones there to set him straight. They don't want a conflict with us, they want to be like us. Just commies.
