China and its Paki-lackey ally always put on a mighty show for visiting US officials. While the latter's medal-loving military peacocks love to strut out captured wanted militants, the former prefers to compete on a more equal level.
So it was no surprise that on the eve of US Defense Secretary's visit to China for a meeting with Prez Hu Jintao, Chinese muscle was exhibited by the maiden launch of the J-20 prototype stealth fighter. Apparently the plane took off from an airfield and flew for fifteen minutes.
Other than information gleaned from official China-govt approved blogs there was no independent verification from any other reputable international news sources. This is typical in China where all information that relates to the country must be vetted by Pahty officials and is subject to stringent censorship.
Questioned by foreign media on the veracity of this prototype and the flight's so-called success, Chief Defense Official Ding Ah Ling told reporters:
"China is taking aggressive stance against all China's enemies"
J-20 update: Your news reporter has just been advised by an anonymous blogger-contact in China that statements indicating the plane had undergone high-speed taxiing tests, with photographs of the airborne jet posted on several Chinese blogs is just Party bragging.
We are told that prior to this bogus flight which was just computer animation anyway, the prototype had broken into small pieces. Corrupt defense officials in charge of this project had pocketed funds for personal use of generals and mistresses leading to the use of substandard material which led to the plane's breakup.
Brooking no dissension the Chinese government immediately televised the execution of the pilot for bringing national shame.
