China Displays Stealth Bomber

No secret that China and the United States have sour relations in regard to military dominance in the South Pacific.

No doubt that China has long been working on this "secret" new weapon, but now to make it public seems more than coincident with the upcoming visit of U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates visit to Beijing.

One can only wonder if China had not adopted, at least in part Capitalism could that nation be able to present such a threat?

A Chinese Stealth Challenge?
BEIJING—The first clear pictures of what appears to be a Chinese stealth fighter prototype have been published online, highlighting China's military buildup just days before U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates heads to Beijing to try to repair defense ties.

The photographs, published on several unofficial Chinese and foreign defense-related websites, appear to show a J-20 prototype making a high-speed taxi test—usually one of the last steps before an aircraft makes its first flight—according to experts on aviation and China's military.
