Recruiting Skilled Soldiers, Challenge, Let Alone Scientists, Engineers


US military’s environment is so poor that it has difficulties to recruit scientists and engineers as proved by its design of useless Zumwalt destroyer, LCS and troublesome F-35. That is not the only problem now. Business Insider says in its report “The military’s ‘war for talent’ is affecting what the Navy’s future ships will look like” 9 hours ago that US military finds that recruitment of skilled soldiers one of its main challenges now.

That is really bizarre. With such a high budget, it cannot afford competitive pays for skilled mercenaries.

    i read today that thaad will not be re-deployed in s. korea

    i think that the owners of lotte should be brought to n.korea to be hung upside down, then fed to the dogs, as their allowing the americunts to use their land for thaad was an invitation to start hostilities. having lost the chinese market (sales down 80% monthly till they finally got the message) was not enuf .

    their entire families should be brought over.

    let’s see how interested the cut-and-run americunts would really be in helping the s.whoreans.

    “Trump should insist the 20 frigates be constructed in China under Chinese supervision for superior state of the art construction – no cost overruns delivery on time.”

    Why insist on building obsolete and old technology? China is at least a generation behind in modern ship design. Just look at their inability in building catapults for modern carriers and or powerful aircraft engines. China needs to learn how to innovate! There is little China can teach America.

      This Beetle-mania is at it again. Repeating nonsense.
      Here are the same answers – China’s EMAL system is under construction in carrier mumber 3. China has powerful indigenous aircraft engines in WS 10, 13, 15, 18, Yun 20 transport, etc etc.. Also, heavy lift long march 5 rocket launches, latest rollout of long march 5B & 7A for its new spacecraft launch. This is something that your ganges tribe cannot understand China’s innovation as a phenomenon – it’s called endless Chinese ingenuity. US politicians and Pentagon has already confirmed that China is ahead of America in scientific research & technology. Look at Huawei 5G, it’s shaking the pillars of American democracy. America fears China’s Huawei 5G, as it can easily suppress American telecommunication technology. There is plenty America can learn from China, but the mountain is too high for America to climb. Why.? America cannot recruit skilled soldiers, let alone skilled scientist and engineers to plug the widening hole in America’s lack of innovation.

        “.. China’s EMAL system is under construction in carrier number 3”
        Yeah yeah we have heard this fake news before but still lack ANY proof of this ‘powerful’ Chinese EMAL catapult. Time for China to face the reality!

        According to PLAN sources China has cut back its plans to develop a nuclear-powered carrier due to financial and technical constraints. It FINALLY looks like China has come to its senses and scaled back its unrealistic expectations and grandiose plans

        Insiders also said that tests of the electromagnetic catapults used to launch the J-15, China’s only carrier-based fighter, had yet to meet the required standard.

        There are problems China just cannot overcome, in spite of so called “CHINESE INGENUITY”

        Poor China and the PLAN. They talk a good game but at the end of the day its all talk. And we all know that talk is cheap, Ha ha!

    Pentagon could be dreaming of a military alliance with formidable China. Just looking at China’s state of the art destroyers and frigates/corvettes 055, 052D, 056, 054 is mouthwatering in comparison to US navy Oceantubs. US will spend 20 billion $$ constructing 20 frigates at a billion a piece that is inferior to China’s 054B. Trump should insist the 20 frigates be constructed in China under Chinese supervision for superior state of the art construction – no cost overruns delivery on time.

    According to survey, Chinese scientist under Professor Ma has an average age between 32 and 34 years. In the US is around 56 years. Chinese research scientists are loaded with young potent dynamites. China must be careful, US has a history of kidnapping scientists.

        People should give it a rest about the Pacific allies coming to help the US in fighting China. Both South Korea and Japan do not want to feel the wrath from China’s megatons. If you think Hiroshima and Nagasaki were that devastating wait till China drop its MTs on a country surrounded by the ring of fire that will literally shake the whole country multiple times simultaneously on a scale of 9. I guarantee you everything will be flat if the shockwave alone from the blast didn’t finish the job completely those aftershocks certainly will and imagine multiple times FUKUSHIMA.

          U 4got s.korea, so I’ll remind readers that the south whoreans are painfully ,overly aware that a land war with China would be like an elephant stepping on a grape. Hell, even n.korea alone could finish them off . After disastrous Vietnam an Korean wars, the cowardly Americunt will only send postcards from Hawaii this time.
          As for Japan, Russia developed a conventional bomb that could wipe them out in one drop.

            I have seen some American GI JOE’s comments on the China army video on Youtube. It was hilarious, you could tell they where crapping in their pants. One said he doesn’t want to mess with China, scary shit. The other said he served in Afghanistan and said he didn’t want to fight the Chinese army. US army commercials are full of bragging how mighty they are lol, go watch it on Youtube you will be having a blast. In reality the Chinese warriors will be raping these fools if they dare set their boots on the Mainland.

            In the case of South Korea, they will be giving the excuse no can’t help. Need the soldiers to guard against the North so they do not have to face the Beast. Japan will claim they have tiny defense force not for invasion, so they pass this so called invitation too.

              How is China going to fight a war when its soldiers cannot even see the enemy? Beyond visual range takes on new meaning for Chinese pilots.

              From the South China Morning Post:

              “China’s crisis of shortsightedness
              With an estimated 720 million people affected, China has the largest number of people with UNCORRECTED poor vision in the world—a number on track to explode in the coming decade.
              Experts at Shanghai Eye Disease Prevention and Treatment Centre have highlighted that 20 per cent of China’s young people actually have high myopia (-8 points)—roughly five times the global average—putting up to half of them at risk of eventual blindness.

              Within the next 30 years, the center for Myopia Research at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University estimates that more than 80 per cent of the entire adult population of China will be” short-sighted.

                This is an example of how dumb the American is. Shortsightedness? Really? It is a condition that can easily be corrected. It is not even a physical disability. Perhaps the shortsighted people in America would have their brain fried too, but shortsightedness or myopia is considered the signs of smartness. It is more plausible than ridiculous claim that autistic people are ‘exceptionally’ smart? The Chinese does attempt to transform their army with sleek and smart soldiers able to fight futuristic wars. If the shortsighted is the consequence, then it is an acceptable consequence. Is this why the American soldiers often called themselves grunts? They are just big show off but dumb? Well the new futuristic army would have good time to fight such primitive army, the Iraqi General Soleimani called the American soldiers should wear women attires because they always ran away from battle. Even if the Chinese soldiers are blind, they could still kick American butts, like in the Korean War. How did they do that if they could not see the enemy? Sixth sense? Telepathy? Even if Chinese soldiers are shortsighted, it can be remedied with with glasses and contact lenses. But it still much better than PTSD among American soldiers. How do you remedied PTSD? Well, I once heard that the American actually tried to treat their PTSD soldiers in the Korean War with Japanese prostitutes, an irony considering how the Japanese forced the women in their occupied area into prostitution. It was also how the American got their admiral Harry
                Harris who resembles much like the war criminal Tojo. But in their state of economy could they afford prostitutes now?Even Phillipines, American source for cheap prostitutes on credit is turning their back on the American. Obviously accepting Chinese investments is more lucrative, and dignified than providing prostitutes -on credits- for the American soldiers. Shortsightedness is actually an advantage in the war against the American. American always relies on ‘shock and awe’ with their scary weaponries. How would the Chinese soldiers be ‘shocked’ and ‘awed’ with such shortsighted vision? On the other hand, PTSD is common among American and Western soldiers. With such ‘clear’ vision, how would their brain process the scary sights of Chinese weaponries? It will enhance their PTSD exponentially. They would wish they have shortsightedness instead of PTSD. And it will be a new definition to the Sun Tzu’s The Art of War -Winning a War Without Fighting- to -Scare Your Enemy to PTSD. – Or even better ‘Scare your enemy to commit suicide.’ Isn’t it what the PTSD people do. It is just an American-style hara-kiri. Inside they are just as cowardly as the Japs.
