A Chinese Admiral said recently that his country's military is capable of sinking American aircraft carriers in the East and South China Seas.

Luo said that sinking American ships would resolve the ongoing territorial disputes in that part of the world. 'What the United States fears the most is taking casualties,' Admiral Luo said.
