#1 Yes, a follower. Endless tasks they pursue. They really stand alone in their attempt at being a superpower. They waste as much as 50% of their GDP on so many programs internally and externally. They can not suffer the least bit of disruption internally or externally. Pakistan and North Korea are really the only two they can count on but obviously that isn't much. They have a controlled economy. So in my opinion they will never be a true super power with their internal problems and international alliances being so week. Trump has shown the way to grow a country. Britain will soon do the same. I see great things to come. These are exciting times. "Which shall it be". Seize the day.

#3 If China ever races ahead of the US in defense tech, it will only be because of differences in objectives of oversight on research budgets.

#4 It's a breakthrough technology in stealth. They strap a ninja to the front of, whatever, and nobody can see it because, well, ninjas.
And they have a big supply of potential ninjas.
