China's Nuclear Submarine Show

If you got it, flaunt it. China will put its nuclear submarines on display for the first time at an upcoming international naval show. According to a Chinese naval officer, the showcase is "aimed at promoting understanding about China's military development." According to other observers, the show is a sign of China flexing its military might; Recent disputes with the U.S., the Phillipines, Japan and—most significantly—Taiwan, have motivated the rapidly growing country to bolster its military and serve notice that it means business. The submarines are the most powerful ships in the Chinese Navy, and there are reportedly interests in adding an aircraft carrier to the fleet. Chinese warships are part of the international flotilla patrolling the pirate-infested waters off the coast of Somalia.
