"Hey, Jiang, make sure to get the pictures we require of all those wonderful targets in the harbor...."

Chinese Warship Visit to Japan Part of Growing Military Charm Offensive

Fortunately, that works both ways. If you don't think that destroyer won't be scrutinized from stem to stern during it's port visit you don't understand how the real world works. What do you think Navy SEALs do besides combat?

Yeah, who else would they steal their designs from without us? The Russians? The Iranians? They both have to make it work first.
That's the dirty little secret I talk about so much, the fact that you can't build an industrial base overnight. Sure, you can steal or otherwise acquire foreign technology that is more advanced than your own, but like giving a primitive Amazon tribe a Ferrari Testarossa, the greatest minds in the tribe can dismantle the Ferrari and completely understand how it works, but they are completely incapable of reverse-engineering it. That's why Russian and Chinese gas turbine technology is behind the United States by 25 and 35 years, respectively.

Sure, no nation on this Earth is lily white, but China is no one's friend. Deal with China and you're dealing with the devil....at your own risk.
