China has celebrated its 60th anniversary of communist domination with a huge show of military force, with a colourful parade of tanks, soldiers and even nuclear weapons rolling through central Beijing.

China’s premier Hu Jintao clung to empty Marxist rhetoric as he watched as 200,000 people and hundreds of military vehicles participate in the grand parade:

“The development and progress of New China over the past 60 years fully proved that only socialism can save China and only reform and opening up can ensure the development of China, socialism and Marxism.”

State media boasted of the sophistication of China’s latest military hardware, saying 52 new “indigenously developed” weapons were on display for the first time.

CHINA-NATIONAL DAY-CELEBRATIONS-AIR SHOW (CN)

China insists its huge military buildup is peaceful in intent, but with the past 60 years having seen China attack Vietnam, Taiwan, Tibet, India, Russia and the UN in Korea, many wonder just what it intends to do with this vast arsenal.

    • why all those warring comments? Instead of spending trillions into military hardware, I think the world should develop to free AV and real life eroge to all of us… Yeah we will be shooting every night but it won’t kill… XD

    • We all want to live free and happy, but we insist on living in fear of others. We must educate people about the importance of life, not death. The way to live in peace with one another and nature. We have become detached from our own Earth, which will outlive us all. China’s power will not bring happiness to the world, nor China. We must put down our weapons, brothers and sisters. There is no need for weapons to kill each other. This is not the way we want to live. Fear is a negative driving tool, not contentment. Think before you write about China’s power. If you are angry at my message, it is because someone has told you not to think for yourself and know what is right. Wake up, sheep!

      • As a Chinese, I very proud, then I want to say. See the comments of your I smiled. Don’t know whether to laugh your ignorance. Or say you are S B. Junk Americans think things in it. In my eyes you birds are not only in China, not more than 10 years of economic in accordance with wood schedule can be you the United States of america. Like many Chinese technology technology. I think you are not even the United States of america. China slowly in China only 10 years beyond the United States economy beyond the United States only 50 years of military basic can be completely over the United States of America in the. Like you these American waiting to be slaughtered. With the global anti American appeal lay strong. I believe that the United States of America in the global military power, a year than a year

    • Dunno…

      Given China has been trying to steal outdated US hardware I highly doubt that. One US B-52 bomber drops a tactical nuke during that rally and all of China’s military strength would have been cut in half.

    • china and russia have both surpassed the us in military. believing otherwise is sheer idiocy and ignorance.

      in fact… russia never surpassed the us, for the us never even came close to russia, be it on technology, quality of soldiers or hardware.

      of course, us people love to say it is otherwise because it makes them feel proud and comfy. They make lots of movies and games about it too. Its quite sad.

      • They might look like toys, but inside some of those barrels are SA-300 series SAM missiles each 10m long. Enjoy having a missile half the height of Gundam chasing your plane at mach 3.5. None survived that yet and just SA-6 shot down American stealth fighter in Serbian war.The weird looking APC might be amphibious which is suitable for their terrain.

        • So the ridiculously retarded looking toy-like exterior which could potentially make someone die from either laughter or puking are just disguises? Ingenious! ‘Cos from the way that they look, I think even war-haters won’t mind having them. Heck, if nobody announced that this was supposed to be a military parade, I think many would mistaken this whole thing for some mega cosplay fest or something.

    • It’s unlikely CHina will be economically superior much less militarily superior to america in 20 years. Reports put China’s economy surpassing America’s in more like 40 years, assuming china’s robust growth. By which time the chinese may have a competent and comparable military that lacked the large economic heft amer had up to then enjoyed. Still, equal or surpassing military strength wouldn’t be necessary to make ‘China strong’. A relative diminishment of Amer military strength in Asia via Chinese strengthing would do enough to deterrent amer involvement in Chinese affrairs assuming the costs of war with china were too great a cost. So china wouldn’t need to surpass amer but just diminish it’s tactical advantages, which it is already doing and not by convential means but asymmetrical means. All in all, times in history were major power shifts occured whether economically or militarily saw wars hammer out a new balance of power so a likely confrontation between amer and china may occur. On the other hand, China’s large population and untaped economic and military potential will be quickly sabotaged by it’s aging population. While it is the largest fastest growing economy in the world with constant perceptions of challenging american hegemony, their population is demographically stagnant and will see a hug wave of aging retirees hit their economic system about the time it’s supposed to surpass amer economically. currently, all industrializing and advanced states require large amts of capital and energies to support continually longer living and expensive costing older persons. simply it’ll be a huge drag on further growth. assuming that dynamic is still viable in 40 years.

      • the politicians may like to strong arm each other to gain support from the masses but in truth, the us and china’s fates are so intertwined that noone is likely ever going to attach each other. theres just too much business to be done!

        • Tito-Machete says:

          true. at this point the US owes China billions in loans. so why would the want to attack their imperialistic ”enemy”? the US imports so much stuff that it represents almost 60% of all China’s exports.
          there is so much money to be made if they are at peace then war between them. attacking each other would only cost them and no profits would be gained. the only people who would gain something is the country’s who would lend them cash after the war to rebuild. so they rather arm other country’s to wage war, then be in war them self’s. a conflict its self has no real value. the true value, is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt, you control everything.

        • As a Chinese, I very proud, then I want to say. See the comments of your I smiled. Don’t know whether to laugh your ignorance. Or say you are S B. Junk Americans think things in it.

        • We all know how China wants to be the number one in everything. Imo, China wants the USA’s spot as the global super power.(No, I’m not an American and I do not even live anywhere near America.) For example, I remember there was once when they announced that they no longer wanted the green notes to be dominating the global economy anymore and want to replace them with their currency.

          And for the joint military exercises, just think of them as enemies keeping each other in check ^^

        • China hasnt even hinted it wants to even start a war with the US.

          Just remember in many cases the China and the US have actually done co-op military exercises. They set each other as the benchmark for military progress.

      • if you knew your chinese history, china’s greatest enemy has always been themselves. The warring eras, the mongol invasion, the muslim invasion, the burning of ships and self seclusion during the 17th century, the boxer rebellion that led to japanese occupation which eventually led their invasion. All caused by internal factors.

        But its great to know that your making a difference right? rather than just mouthing shit off on the internet and going back to your mundane reality. right? right??

        • Obviously you DON’T know your Chinese history. How could you force the dogma of Chinese unification on even history? For example, there was no “China” in your sense during the Warring States era, each state had different language, script, measuring system, culture etc. etc. The “unification” in the modern sense was first achieved under the brutal, barbaric and military rule of a tyrant who called himself “Shi Huang Di” (first emperor). At the time of Mongol invasion, Northern China (in a geographical sense) and Southern China have long been governed separately by different regimes such that in the discourse back then they were referred to with different names. So where was your so called “China”? Where was Xizang, Xinjiang and Dongbei in Shihuangdi’s rule? Where do you draw the legitimacy? By now you should have realised the the current boundaries of China were taken straight from the Imperial Qin Dynasty, whose territory was obtained purely from conquest. So this “China” you speak of is really a geographic IMPERIALIST legacy, is that the sort of historic legitimacy you wanna draw from? So stop trying to mess around with “history” narrated in your primary school books, the only legitimacy China can draw from, and really needs, is its governance right here right now. China is not the only country whose borders were drawn by blood spewed from Imperialism, UK & US were no better if not worse. But it’s silly to tweak history, not to face issues left by history straight on with a straight face. Let the legitimacy of a country by granted by the way it treats its people right here right now.

      • You should be thanking the American Imperialist pigs.

        If it wasn’t for them, China would be a colonial state of the Japanese empire, and would be in the same situation as Taiwan.

        On second thought, yes, death to the American pigdogs for allowing the Chinese to become independent.

        • Hahaha… You got your history wrong. Stalin didn’t loan anything to the Americans. It was the other way around.

          Just think. If the US didn’t volunteer people in both sides and if Pearl Harbor never happened, things could have been a lot different. But who cares now. What happened happened.

          Does anyone get tired of hearing “China has a long history”? Which China? As far as I know, it has constantly been burning previous dynasties and its own history down. And the current one is suppose to represent or have some resemble the past in some form? You mean like Napoleon and the french monarchy? Please.

        • The Japs have tanks fighting against bolt action rifles so no surprise there until the Russians bring their T-34 which is the best tank of the war and Jap tanks could not even penetrate the armour. But for some reason Stalin loaned some of those to Americans to kick some Axis ass.

        • sigh… why all of you guys just never see the real truth about the war…. every nation just have to work together to eliminate the enemy… didi Brits won the WWII alone? no.. can US stop WWII alone??? no!… u get the rest… even today, with US military’s high-tech weapondary and funds, they still needs NATO’s help, ISAF. and who’s NATO? the EU countries… so… u guys understand? unite we stand, separated we fall… no matter how powerful your military was…

          and… PEACE!!! NOT WAR!!!

        • The only major setback Japanese suffered on the mainland was the Russian invasion of Manchuguo. At the time of Japanese surrender, Kantougun still held vast part of Eastern China. If it wasn’t for the nukes, as far as the Chinese Theatre was concerned the Japanese were still far from defeated.

          Actually, considering the primary objective of Japan’s invasion of Chinese mainland was raw material, and that there was rampant warlordism and limited sense of nation state in China back then, a Raj style exploitation could be very possible.

          I was born and spent most of my life in China and I’ve got to say honestly, if you stare down the barrel of history and try to assess it more neutrally, it was almost impossible for the various elements in China alone to defeat the Japanese militarily in the short term. But that is far from stretching it to say anything like “the Chinese should be thankful of the Americans”, because they were in it to the extent it was because they themselves were attacked by the Japanese. WWII has always been praised as a war on Fascism, but really, the world did jackshit against Fascism and only knee-jerked when the shit hit the fan. It’s more appropriate to say it was a series of wars by various countries in the world in response to the aggression from militant totalitarian states.

        • But any japanese victory in East China was like the British victory over the Amer colonies. Cities and population centers were taken but main political opposition spread throughout the chinese frontier that the japanese would never be able to hold on to china especially considering their wide expansion into other terroritories in the pacific. However, if japanese occupation mimicked the Brits in India there’s something more plausible. However, Indian occupation came slowly over centuries through active cooperation with the Brits by India princes and warlords.

        • If by “beat back” you mean attempt to mount a defence by hiding in the mountains as the Japanese occupied the the entire eastern part of China, and were busy moving into Indochina and Burma, considering the Chiense beaten.

          The Japanese were not defeated on the mainland until the Russians blitzed into Manchuria, while the IJA were busy slaughtering Chinese guerillas.

          L2WWII History

        • Communists united with the Nationalists in a temporary cease fire and beat back the Japanese when Americans were island hopping in the Pacific.

          And the coalition being lead by communists the US didn’t want supplies to go to them, so China pushed the Japanese out with “guns and cannons built by our enemies”.

    • When was the last time China has ever won a war against a foreign power by itself? You know, despite its massive manpower reserves and resources?

      China is like a panda, big body, powerful muscles, and great potential. But all it does is sit on its lazy ass and chew on bamboo sprouts until something comes along and drives it to extinction.

  • Are you afraid yet Americunts?

    That’s right, I bet you are shitting yourselves. China, mighty China shall become the new superpower one way or another and America shall get on it’s knees one day and beg for mercy in recognition of Chinese superiority in culture, intelligence and military.

    China shall usher in a new age of peace and prosperity throghout Asia under it’s rightful hegemony that will undoubtedly overshadow what the US Imperialists have to offer. Just as the Tang and Han Dynasty once created a prosperous trading zone for everyone so too will the great People’s Republic in China.

    No-one will be racist to China ever again, no one shall make stupid comments about China again when China becomes the new world superpower.

    But what should we do with this powerful military that will one day be as powerful as the US? First, take down the counter-revolutionary Japanese and Korean otakus. And then, put those Taiwankers in their place.

    China shall not collapse, it will not collapse and it must not collapse for the sake of glorious new era Pax Sinica that all Chinese shall be proud of. And so let us sing to the People’s Republic of China’s glory. Make you fight on for another glorious 100 years.

    Arise! All who refuse to be slaves!
    Let our flesh and blood become our new Great Wall!
    As the Chinese nation faces its greatest peril,
    All forcefully expend their last cries.
    Arise! Arise! Arise!
    Our million hearts beat as one,
    Brave the enemy’s fire, March on!
    Brave the enemy’s fire, March on!
    March on! March on! On!

    *sigh* some people here…
    Most you people don’t really get it. War isn’t a game. War doesn’t work the way many of you think. If a country decides to go to war, that country has to be prepared to take some pretty tough hits in return. If two major powers like the US and China actually went to war (which is highly unlikely) both countries stand to be crippled by the end of it, with no real victor. War today is not the same anymore. It’s unlikely any country would resort to nuclear weapons too, except as a last ditch effort in the face of defeat. Both the US and China have missle defense systems , but neither of them are perfect, and ultimately, any country that ever resorts to nukes would be nuked to hell in return. There would be no real victory for anyone, especially when whatever land they wre fighting over or for was turned into irradiated wastelands.

    WMDs changed war, and by that, I mean they almost entirely destroyed the chances of any major powers going to war with each other for fear of retaliation. That’s why war today is only fought between strong and weak nations, not strong and strong. Imagine: if China had been responsible for 9/11 it would have taken years for the US to decide if it wanted to go to war with a major power. For similar reasons, though, China would never risk causing an event like 9/11 anyway.

    Take a few minutes and think about the realities of war before saying foolish things about how “country a” would totally destroy “country b”.

  • Parade is just tell people that we have the army, that a country does not?
    You only care about weapons have thought about why there is war?
    China’s development is now very good, needs a war?
    Tired of the peace, not China, but other countries.
    Chinese people have been bullied and know the pain of being aggressive, so it will not bring pain to others.
    This is the case, why should suspect that the Chinese? Rather than the suspect days GunsAndGears country?

  • Tibet…. I really dun understand why people speak for those former salve holder… Just because they are anti-communism?

    It’s really werid for real Chinese to see people from places other than China to consider China to be a communism country… It’s just an autocracy & low efficiency government….

    P.S. the worry about China’s going to collpase is bullshit… even the money been corruption has a greater amount than our military expenses LOL

  • Half the people posting here are complete idiots. I feel like my IQ is gradually lessening even as I type this. So I’ll keep it short: don’t claim to understand conflicts you’re not a part of. If you don’t live there, you can’t possibly have a thorough enough understanding of the situation at hand. Every government has it’s flaws; no matter what code you impose on the people, certain aspects will be considered unfair or even inhumane. If, god forbid, all these demands for nuclear holocaust were granted, then perhaps those of us who survive will be able to put aside our differences. But I don’t think that’ll happen. So in the meantime, it looks like we’re stuck with war and asshole internet fascists and people who post uncomfortably long comments (all apologies).

  • I am a chinese,my English is pretty bad.I just want to say the parade is a usage,and our goverment want to show the condition of army to our people.I havn’t heard the “cold war”for so long time,it just appeard in history book in our middle or high school. If I made some mistakes in grammer ,please point them to me.Thanks.

  • Philippines have the same camouflage style (Lego blocks with different green hues) with their amphibious vehicles as the one that China has. Saw it on tv while they were broadcasting civilian rescue operations done by the marines in Metro Manila yesterday.

    Except it has the shark eye and mouth design at the front like the American versions have.

    I have to wonder if they got that vehicle from the Chinese Navy…

  • I read almost this all your fuc*ing comment..
    but still, all of you is missing the main point!
    war?..nuke?…economics?..China?..US?….
    fuc*ing retard!..
    the main important is you visit this site, you read this news, just for fun and killing time, don’t you?..
    So, why you need to crush and angry each other??
    believe me, even all of you “bark” in here, none will be change you know!..
    take an action than talk!..fuc*ing ass hole!
    kill the Obama, or kill the China president, if you want to start a war!!..
    do some onani or watch more Hentai for relaxing your fuc*ing retard brain!!

    • Actually China has APAR radars for their long range SAMs such as the HQ-9 and their S-300PMU2’s.

      The dish-radars are just build-in active targeting radars for their low-key, point defence SAM systems (HQ-7 Crotale), and the Type 95 Self Propelled Aircrat Gun. Both of them doesnt need long-range, high performance APARs. The short range pulse-doppler radars are more than sufficient.

      well, that’s /k/ for you…

  • So…. who the fuck are they parading for? Aren’t all the chinese citizens too busy struggling in sweatshops for 10 cents a day to attend this? Or is this purely for the cameras to be spammed around the internet?

      • China might want to stop handing out loans. Sooner or later some smart politician will ask “Why pay back so much money to a third world country when we can use there internal conflicts to destroy them.” Nuclear arm Taiwan, Get weapons to Tibetan separatists, encourage extremists in Chinese occupied Muslim regions. Beware of America, their only true God is money.

        • This is actually not that far-fetched. People hammering the PRC government for its relatively strong grip (until recently) on foreign intervention should realize that countries like America have traditionally took advantage of internal struggles in other countries. A good example would be CIA funding for the Dalai Lama to train guerillas in order to fight against China, as well as its ‘convenient’ support for Taiwan.

  • What many Chinese forget is that the Chinese government is as likely, or even more likely, to run over its own people with these tanks than anyone from another country in the conceivable future.

    • so be it. if it’s for the sake of peace and stability, the let the heads roll.

      for the happiness of some over-zealous protestors and students, one should not forget the happiness of 1 billion ordinary people, whose wealth is build on exactly this communist enforced stability.

      chinese dont want to have USSR situation in their own country, where the leader s didnt roll over their people but sacrificed the whole fucking country instead. noone is happy there.

  • U guys are missing the point…nobody will nuke nobody. Even a country like north Korea has nuke.So if the war breaks out between China and other heavy weights like US,European nations,India and Russia it’ll be a massacre.Almost everything will be wiped out.And hello…those fags who thinks china can beat USA are living in fools paradise.’cause US never fights alone.Lets do the maths—China (the second most powerful nation) will have allies like Russia,Korea and may be Pakistan(I seriously doubt that).While USA(most powerful nation) will have allies like ALL EUROPEAN NATIONS,India and may be Japan(Japaneese people seriously hates China).Now a few more small nations may join the war but that wont change anything.
    So in the end winner is still USA.
    I am an Indian and not a very big supporter of USA.But truth is truth.And about china’s ARMS DISPLAY CEREMONY—–it’s just a political move.
    By the way I LOVE JAPAN & I LOVE SANKAKU COMPLEX.
    VIVE LA MANGA…VIVE LA EROGE…VIVE LA OTAKU.

    • You just keep telling yourself that, trying to appease the otaku crowd here after spewing your bullshit. Your country is almost 3 times smaller than China with almost as much population, due to overtake China’s population in 10 years. Everyone lives in a shitty straw house while all the college grads go on to work for Microsoft call centers. Great country, hope you do well. Viva turbania!

    • then in that case the war will never happen, cause even if a amateur like you knows the end

      war only happens when the both sides think they can actually win things from the war

      the military parade is just for ppl like you india, where, when war broke out usa will not be willing to send even one of his men despite the truth that the war is actually stirred up by him

    • China’s own statement about the military parade is maybe the best description of what you said:

      ‘we are just presenting our advanced army on a parade as means of deterence – it’s actually the healthier and more peaceful alternative to what western countries do in order to detere their enemies: invading them.’

  • you guys know why you hate china so much?
    did any chinese done things awful to you? have your grandfather got massacred by ch army?

    surely not,

    you hate china only because your gov told/taught you to,

    and the most funny thing is ,you guys never realise that you just willingly choose your dictator and happily get fucked up just in order to let he or his good pals get the most cash for he to pay his ads/media to make you choose him again in the next 4 years,
    and you're still laughing thinking that the whole world other than your own so-called decomcracy empire, is fail.

    you guys and the socalled media of free speech,etc never fail to amuse me when concerning this kind of things

  • Jesus, the amount of pussy all lined up never to be pleasured. No wonder there is so much hate in the world. All the women are busy doing other things besides making men happy. Then you get US folks here gawking and touching out little wee wee selves and comparing dong sizes on which missles are better.

  • 我是一个中国,我承认,我们也不能击败美国和其他发达国家,如果有人胆敢侵犯我们,我们将让他们的家人收到他们的骨灰。

    I am a Chinese, I admit that we also can not beat the United States and other developed countries, if anyone would dare to violate us, we will allow their families to receive their ashes.

    • As a Chinese, I very proud, then I want to say. See the comments of your I smiled. Don’t know whether to laugh your ignorance. Or say you are S B. Junk Americans think things in it. In my eyes you birds are not only in China, not more than 10 years of economic in accordance with wood schedule can be you the United States of america. Like many Chinese technology technology. I think you are not even the United States of america. China slowly in China only 10 years beyond the United States economy beyond the United States only 50 years of military basic can be completely over the United States of America in the. Like you these American waiting to be slaughtered. With the global anti American appeal lay strong. I believe that the United States of America in the global military power, a year than a year

  • Man some of the comments here are pretty stupid. China and the States aren’t going to go to war anytime soon. If they did neither side would win, both would lose. The colourful military is most likely strictly for celebrations purposes. To the guy saying rape the women and the person saying American women in the military are better fighter get your facts straight. US, Japan, China and some other countries allow women to be in the military but currently they are not allowed to server in active combat zones to PREVENT the risk of rape. You really can’t compare the capabilities of women between these 2 countries and I would like you to try to give me hard facts proving your point.

    Btw I heard that China bought some weapons and military technology from France not too long ago.

  • theres not really anything wrong with this military parade. Its just a celebration of 60 years of “communism” in china. Its just like any other celebration such as the celebrations of independence day, anzac day etc.

    I dont get why there are so many dumbshits in the united states who want war with china when China aren’t trying to screw the united states over-they’re actually helping the US.

    Furthermore, who the fuck starts a war over a difference in army sizes these days? Those people who hate china at the moment usually are those dumbfucks who support groups like equality now. The conservative retards who don’t accept change.

    Imho china’s political system is excellent considering how big the country is. If china was to take on full capitalism like the united states we’d see the region smash itself to pieces in a matter of months. The EU is a good example of what I mean.

    The world doesnt have to interact with war. God those people who think that way should really let that urge to kill out in their fantasy worlds. I mean play some CS or something.

  • apparently with all of the communist argument above let me just say China is not a communist by name however they are a modified communist as their economic policies now accept a free market however most of their government policies still are communist by nature

    • +1.

      The communism is to keep unrest at bay, mind you in the context of the world’s biggest country in terms of population i find this appropriate.

      Look at what the media left to its own devices is capable of in the US… flick through a few channels, always some story about murder, or investigations.

      Now imagine the gun crime in the US multiplied to coincide with china’s population…

    • if applied 100%.

      Maoist communism wasnt true communism, and currently its 50% socialist and 50% capitalist imho.

      if we put it your way capitalism is also the very definition of faliure.

      Its a very selfish system, because the rich get richer and the poor get poorer; inequality. Not everyone is born into a wealthy family too bear that in mind. In the US its horrendous how theres no free healthcare.

      Funnily the media cover all this up. Its just like communism isnt it?

      But capitalism in moderation is win. So is communism in moderation.

      Look at countries like Australia where most of their economic policies borderline on socialist compared to other developed capitalist nations.

      They didnt even get smacked by the GFC unlike other nations. China? Drop in demands, but still rich.

  • This kind of coincides with a post above mine, but I’d be more worried about a Chinese naval buildup. If they build up a good sub force like the ones the US has, especially with ballistic missiles, then I’d be very worried.

    They already have long range missiles and something like 400+ nukes, which pales in comparison to Russia and America, but it’s still a good shiton.

    I just thought it was kind of funny when Japan politely asked China to cut down the amount of nukes it holds as per Obama’s whole nuclear disarmament push.

  • us and china have worked together to build world’s police force. and that police force is designed to protect the great resources of the world. while chinese people fear/hate america, it is america that gave them everything they needed to start “the miracle”. it’s funny to listen to chinese with anti america hatred when america honestly gave china all their secrets in how to build modern country plus business secrets, plus most of their police/military infrastructure. america has given them high tech military stuff for free. all you people assume china vs. america but never stop to see it has china + america. why would america give china so much the last 30 years for no reason? the politicians and business leaders want to work together to control the world’s resources. chinese people act like they invented everything modern on their own but the truth is america made the new china. china just provided the labor. america by far has been the biggest supporter and business partner with china. the new china looks just like america…like america built america 2.0 with a lot of chinese people. they both will rule earth like darth vader some day…except there will be no luke skywalker! america used to say “we’re not going to use this military anywhere” when they got biggest after soviet union collapse. then they practiced on little countries and pumped their chests like they beat up russia. the people got jacked up and eventually they got bolder. americans are tired of war now, but during first gulf war they thought they were the new roman empire. they got off on their military so much. china will do the same thing. chinese people will be easily tricked into military patriotism like american people are. within 5 years they will “enforce” something involving a small place. chinese people will brag about it and see it as the start of their new destiny. soon after, china will use military enforcement to bring taiwan officially under control. it’s all going to happen. america did it. now china will do it. you don’t build a military like that to fight unarmed tibetans or a handful of uighurs. you do it to enforce your will around the world. some day they will need to test their military like america did with small countries. they need to know if their stuff works. they need real world combat or else it’s all just parade dressing. it’s coming. they will easily quadruple their nukes and navy power in 10 years and then they will basically be same as america. given america was the only superpower after soviet collapse and that they also then did the most business with china, why would america let another superpower rise so easily if they didn’t have some closed-door plan with china for the future? as usual this is about oil, natural gas, minerals, water, but common people think it’s about national pride. ha! fools!

    i do think the parada is necessary. after all, china doesn't have a war for a long time.and parada offers a chance to show the power of china and tell the world that I'm not a sucker.

    unlike USA, America can show her power in Iraq and Afghan.
    nomatter how mamy nukes china have, being a 60-years-old country, having nukes is amazing.
    recently, american planes are allways found around the chinese coast, china said nothing, beacuse he didn's want world to know how powerful he is. that is bright. through the parada, china can tell you that is my military instead of a war like in koera.

    so, china just wants the world(especially USA and western countries) to know do not even think about any threats in military, i just bother talking.

    WTF? Considering that China's only claim is that it has the largest land force in the world is great and all, but last time I checked we had shit that pretty much rendered large swarms of Infantry rather useless. Tanks by all practical purposes, are pretty much useless in urban warfare which is what most wars these days compromise. Hell, just ask the Israelis every time they go up against Jihadist.

  • Seriously, if an all out war start between China, Russia and American, I don’t think China is the last one who standing, but if there is a change that all of em end up collapse, it’s may not a good thing to happen…or it not ???

    • Actually, considering china doesnt have stupid conservative morons in politics, their technological process is fairly unhindered compared to the US.

      I reckon Russia should be taken out of the equation however, they are no longer as potent as they were in the USSR days.

      Considering how big the chinese army is and how they’re as technologically advanced as the US its simply disadvantageous for the US to even attempt to attack.

      The real war that the US should be fighting is the war against the hypocritical media, “welfare” groups, etcetera. Thats where all the suffering is coming from.

  • as an american IMO, the US got screwed over after it tried to pick up the slack in places the old imperial powers lost…

    Vietnam – France
    Iraq/Middle East – Britain
    Africa – Britain, France, Belgium, etc.

    In Vietnam, if France hadn’t tried to get back it’s old colony there would be no reason for us to go back in there, but nope we went in there and tried to stay in there o_o… not a good idea at all…

    in the middle east if Britain had kept their promise to the arabs for an independent country and never made Israel, I highly doubt the Taliban and other peeps over there would care much about what we did, so long as they got paid for their oil and got tourists visiting man made islands

    and then in freaken Africa, well if you studied imperialism and learned about how the Europeans treated the natives like shit and ruined their economy with cash crops and so on, then you can pretty much figure out lots of the problems there…

    basically most of the problems in this world are the cause of… over religious peeps and over racist peeps (past and present)…

    ):O so instead we should use our guns on them… the only problem is many of them have a gun as well… I propose all of us band forces to eliminate the KKK, Black Power Groups(including gangs), those asshole Mexican gangs, over Religious assholes trying to indoctrinate you, and Hill billies (which would solve the problems in the US at least)

  • Is it just me or is carrying a bunch of exposed rockets into battle really a great Idea? Still though gotta love the China quality, their tanks are great freaking rip-offs. But like most things out of China, I’m pretty sure there’s some military bulletin about High Lead quantity in Chinese tanks somewhere out there. Not to mention the actual lead in their bullets.

    However if we ever were to go against China we would lose, I mean seriously, who wouldn’t surrender to a shitload of hot indentical-I can pretend their all twins- chicks?

    Chinese Female Soldier: You put gun down!! Me Suck for 10 dollar.

    US soldier:……….aight, but make it 5 dollars.

    Chinese Female Soldier: Deal now drop to floor!!!

    US soldier: Fuck Yea mam’!!

    Also, is sending 90% of bride eligible Chinese women into war a great Idea? I mean seems counter intuitive but then again maybe Mao Zedong was really gay and just wanted a women free zone full of meek men in Soldier cosplay. We’ll never know…..

    • Jesus, cast aside your superiority complex.

      You’re one fucked up person considering the latter of your post :).

      Rip offs or not, these are weapons, they’re made to kill. If those tanks were rip offs then the united states basically have ripped off the design of the gun itself, and the british ripped off the chinese who originally invented the gun.

      Let me guess, your family loves guns. One of your family members or yourself is part of the NRAA.

      • I’m appalled you are actually defending a man that caused Chinese Genocide, but hey if you feel like defending batshit dictators that turned one of the most ancient cultures into a veritable bastion of failed communism, hell be my guest.

  • China insists its huge military buildup is peaceful in intent, but with the past 60 years having seen China attack Vietnam, Taiwan, Tibet, India, Russia and the UN in Korea, many wonder just what it intends to do with this vast arsenal.

    • Let see…There is too many things potential wrong with this post, but picking a few of the best ones…

      Japan was more than 60 years ago, and THEY attacked FIRST (Pearl Harbor, and before that, the USS Panay.).

      China – US did not want to fight them, but than all those Chinese ‘volunteers’ showed up and attack (Again, first.) the US/UN troops near the Yalu.

      North Korea – yeah, and that was after the NK attack first South Korea (A US ally.). Unless you read history books printed in Pyongyang.

      Congo – Ah…No. Methinks you are mixing up the Belgians here.

      Libya – only after they launched terrorist attacks against US interests. El Dorado Canyon should have been repeated after Pan Am 103 was blown up by Libyan intelligence.

      Afghanistan – the nation that welcomed Bin Laden and defended him after the 9/11. Another case of the US being attacked first.

      Cambodia and Laos – well, explain why the North Vietnamese were violating those countries’ neutrality first and continuously while operating the Ho Chi Minh Trail. If the trail did not exist, there would have been no problems.

  • The Chinese military would never surpass the US. The US has the backing of NATO nations, some of the richest and most advance nations in the world, India, Japan, and some members in the Middle East. Besides, the only reason why China is able to maintain its large standing army is because of the massive population, the relative poverty level in China that often gives youths little choice in what they want to be thus joining the army seem like a logical step, massive gap between male and female ratio, and a booming economy that is, unfortunately, unsustainable because it is funded by stimulus money. The big problem now is not whether China can challenge the US or its allies but the potential landfall that an economic, social, and political breakdown that will ensue when, not if, China will receive its “lost decade.”

  • Wow, china its perfect! They are almost like ants! Its like a monarchy that works because their citizens think they are happy with their lives as gears in a social machine that they call government that actually makes happy those who work directly in there xD

  • All these stupid arguments about whether China or the US would win in a war are quite frankly idiotic, for two reasons:

    1) China and the US will never go to war. China’s economy is based on selling cheap stuff to the west. To keep on making their stuff so cheaply, they keep their currency, the Yuan, low compared to the dollar by buying tons of US debt. If either nation goes to war with each-other, both will collapse. Millions of Chinese workers will lose their jobs and their economy will crash overnight, and similarly, the US debt would go up hugely, foreign nations would cut off all investments in the US economy and sell their share of US debt, and our government would be broke.

    2) The US and China have already faced each-other in war before. The place was Korea. Guess what – neither side won.

  • Every country has the right to protect itself , comparing with the US army , these showed weapons are laggard , so don’t worry they will invade us someday . and for some fags , watch your dirty mouths ,anyway 中国万岁 even I don’t like communism party .

    • Christopher Hitchens has the best line about situations like this – ‘a pre-war feeling’, like all the dress rehearsals are over and they are just waiting for the real show to begin.

      By that standard, it will not be long before the fireworks start going off.

      K

  • what kind of an asshole country show case it’s weapon as if it is a proud thing to do. Killing is never right yet they are displaying it as if we will launch these weapon at a moment notice.

    • How to celebrate mother’s 60 year’s birthday?
      Her son said he was getting stronger and the mother’s insulted history ended now.
      He shows his confidence to bring the good future to his mother.
      I bet this is the best gift.
      If the troops are Americans, do you hate them?

  • We have to remember the other communist country to do this. The USSR bragged about their worldwide military superiority while parading tanks and missiles down red square. They kept up a ridiculous level of military spending while their economy collapsed around them while throwing all of their money into the blackhole called afghanistan.

    They bragged about how mighty and invincible they were until their country completely collapsed…

    It couldn’t happen to us because communism = bad and capitalism = jesus loves you. So we should be safe because of jesus using his invisible hand to finger**** the free market…right? right? RIGHT!?!?

  • Very impressive display of manpower and discipline. The march reminds of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, choreography and creativity was the best I have ever seen.

    While grand as their military is, and in light of all the conversation about pitting the US and China against each other, all I see is a nation built to protect itself and invade neighboring countries en masse. Granted the style of warfare were the same as back in the 18th Century and before where armies faced each other in line on the battlefield, chances are China would win due to numbers alone. No matter how many died, more replacements would be abundant.

    Nowadays, military might comes more from technology and not numbers…making the individual soldier more lethal and effective so that even if you have a comparatively smaller force they could be a serious threat.

    China built a military not capable of sending forces to placed outside its reach as compared to the US which is tailored to bringing the war to the enemy’s doorstep. In terms of military hardware in that aspect, the US reigns in air and naval superiority. And while I think that most of our taxpayer money should be used elsewhere instead of building weapons to fight enemies we wish we had instead of the ones we have now, I at the least feel secure and protected.

    If China were to be invaded, they would put up one hell of a fight and I would not doubt a single second they could thwart such attempts easily.

    • Still the thing is, manpower is still quite important. One person with the most technologically advanced weapon would not be able to hold out against a couple thousand people armed with bows.
      He would run out of ammo first.

    • Actually the chinese are working on anti satellite missiles.

      If we lose our comm sats, we can’t coordinate our remote drones, spy sattellites, and other weapons/devices that we control from halfway across the world.

      If they knock enough sats out with the initial strike, they could have subs take out our ships and damage our fleet while they use their satellites to coordinate the war.

      They could catch us completely off guard if they pulled that off right.

      • To make some clarifications: The United States as well, along with Russia and China, are the only countries to date to develop space weaponry.

        While China had international spotlight with its 2007 demonstration, the US followed shortly after with the destruction of its own decommissioned spy satellite USA-193.

        There are several thousand active satellites ranging from communications to spy to weather to scientific research operations in orbit around earth in addition to thousands more that are dead space. Trying to single out, track, and target a handful for destruction is easier said than done or even thought about.

        China has always been focused on its land-based forces. While its nary has built up over the past decade, analysts place China far behind as a power…even some placing it behind Japan. Naval commanders in China are hoping to boast their naval presence with their first ever aircraft carrier, even if it is only a restoration of an ex-Soviet carrier used back in the 1980s. Plans are underway to build a few of their own, however, none are said to be matching the size of the US supercarriers.

  • China’s is pretty hypocritical calling itself communist. Given, it does rightfully exhibit socialist economic practices, communism is not socialism. Communism is an idealist’s idea, a utopia not possible in our world, and it has failed many times throughout history. China definitely exhibits capitalist tendencies along with their socialist practices.

    Do people really think when they point fingers and call names? Do they really understand what communism is? No, but its much easier to BLAME THE DIRTY RED COMMIES. FUCK YEAR

  • That is the sexiest army I have ever seen. Pic would be better with a counter march by the Alabama black snakes. Chinese military girls, about face, bend over, present arms (a.k.a. the beaver). Lolz.

    Also love the Lego paint job on their vehicles of mass destruction, lol. Japan should have slaughtered China’s military spirit when it had the chance. Then again, so should the Monguls, and so should have England, and so should have the US rather than waste time on Vietnam and splitting Korea and dicking around in the middle east and Africa.

  • The US isn’t a democracy, it’s a republic. A democracy is actually closer to communism.

    “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands”

  • Well, you have to admitt! On solid ground, China has the strongest army today.

    If it’s on the oceans, they couldn’t go up against the US, but as soon as it comes to ground battle, there is no army stronger.
