If by Sunfire, you mean the SSN-22 (Nato Code Name Sunburn), its a fairly old missile, although they might have upgraded it. But its not some new weapon that is going to change the nature of Naval Warfare, its just an antiship cruise missile, much like the Harpoon.
Btw, don't be to impressed with the speed of a antiship missile. Coming in faster tends to make a missile less accurate. The best antiship missiles tend to be subsonic, with a smaller radar signature, and a greater ability to manuver. That is why after the SSN 22, the russians developed the SSN-25, which is closer in design and ability to the Harpoon. Our navy people jokingly called it the Harpoonski. But its more of a threat to our ships than the Sunburn/Sunfire.
But what has that got do with the Chinese wanting us to ban country boys having guns? Red Dawn aside, the Chinese aren't really a threat to invade the West Coast, even if war broke out. They are a regional navy, with one experimental carrier, and not enough of a logistical infrastructure to operate a large fleet more than a few hundred miles from their own coast.
Yes, I mean Sunburn.
In reality, I agree with you for now. I dont really think anything could happen within the next decade unless they attack Japan.
But the reality is that the world is changing right now. When big things happen, such as a "changing of the guard" at the superpower position, history shows that wars usually happen during these periods.
At the end of all of the global empires from Babylon to Rome to Germany.
For 50 years, there was kind of an equalibrium with the USSR, but after collapse in the 90s, unfortunately, even our beloved America immediately started expanding it's global power.
These are unstable times as the economy is wobbling, there is very hot political division, rising powers in the east again with a resurging Russia, and the giant China that is growing tired of submission to the Western banking empires (USA, UK, NATO).
Once again, I am rambling, but I promote the Teddy Roosevelt and Ron Paul doctrine of "Speak softly, but carry a big stick". I think that there are huge problems with all of this 'globalization'. It always seems like there are huge debts to be paid, and phantom gold that seems to have disappeared all over the world.
To get back on topic... Unfortunately, I see a time during my lifetime when we Americans may need to protect ourselves on our homeland, and it is really easy to take away rights, but a struggle to get them back. I dont see our politicians ever giving the 2nd Amendment back if they take it away... they see it as a threat to their power.
