"China lands first jet on aircraft carrier" confuses me, they are a threat?

I doubt the Chinese are doing this in an attempt to catch up with the United States. That might be the eventual goal, but the immediate goal is to be the baddest kid on their own block. This is more about regional rivalries with South Korea, Japan, and Vietnam, and control of islands and key maritime chokepoints around their own area.

China wants the South China Sea to be theirs and theirs alone.

As the polar ice continues to melt, get ready for some heated naval engagements to establish who controls those new shipping lanes, though.
