China will “only” increase its military spending by 7.5% in 2010, to 532 billion yuan; the force is already the world’s largest with some 3,000,000 members.

China has been increasing its military budget by over 10% each year for the past two decades or more, but many suspect it has been concealing the true magnitude of its military expenditures amidst its notoriously opaque public spending, and are similarly sceptical about this year’s supposed reduction in increases.

China claims its purpose in this huge armaments program is purely self-defence:

“The only purpose of China’s limited military strength is to safeguard China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

China insists its territory includes land currently administered by several neighbouring nations, and historically has felt free to impose its sovereignty on non-Chinese peoples in a vast empire, intact to this day:


Hawks within the PLA advocate building a huge military force with which to challenge the west, the so-called “China Dream.” Even moderates advocate the invasion of Taiwan, which is already the target of thousands of missiles.

One Chinese foreign policy think-tank was last year lambasted for suggesting Chinese policy should encourage the forcible break-up of India, and Chinese submarines have repeatedly infiltrated Japanese territorial waters – many understandably wonder if its rise will be as peaceful as it claims.

    In the Abrahamic religions (Islam, Christian, & Jews),Dajjal (in Christian known as Anti-Christ)is a one-eyed person who will come when the Doomsday start (Qiamat in Islam), to mislead the believers, & later will be killed by the Imam Mahdi (a person who will be born in the future / probably already born). Messiah (Isa Al-Masih), will also descend wheen the Doomsday start.

    Find the series 'The Arrivals', maybe you will learnt something from it.

    China won't do squat. They depend too much on the US to buy their cheap crap. And if they pull something funny, we don't need to invade. We would destroy their infrastructure in hours but we would not have to send in ground forces to rebuild it like we did in Iraq.

    The only good thing I can see of this is WWIII happening so that all the butthurt Chinese pukes (going on about how the West exploited them for hundreds of years and now they'll "self-defense" and "reclaim their lost land" on yo ass), can go to war with America.

    They'll rope in all the other allies, Western sympathizers on one side, Chinese sympathizers with the 'pragmatic fence-sitters' placing their bet on the sheer AWESUM of China the other.


    Then we'll solve overpopulation and global warming (personal transport emissions) in one fell swoop. And all the butthurt and RAGE can be resolved in one swift bloody war.

    The very idea of a one on one war with China is insane, if China decided to invade America good luck getting across the Pacific, if America decided to invade mainland China good luck crawling over corpse mountain.

    Now the threat China poses to it's immediate neighbors is another story, as is how much the US would get involved. If China invaded South Korea the US would come running and who can say how much the two powers would up the ante before somebody folded. If China 'invaded' Taiwan then maybe we'd have a little war on our hands, and maybe we wouldn't, persuasive journalism could sway that. Anywhere else at this point would be just talk. Oceania, Japan, it's Asian neighbors.

    This is not a particularly good time to be starting a war.

    Ol Saddam beat the living snot out of an Iranian Zerg Rush using 1960s level technology.

    A mass of conventional Chinese soldiers vs US forces would equal such a blood bath you'd be able to see it from space.

    A large conventional army without air superiority and a blue water navy to protect it is also known as hamburger.

    Their only chance would be to hope the US would actually be stupid enough to invade mainland China and then revert to guerrilla tactics like the Vietcong.

    Artefact's article regarding the modernization of Chinese military sounds like outdated early 90s NATO/7th USN fleet policies.

    Invasion of the ROC, Taiwan, is completely absurd in this current political-economic environment.
    Not only would that literally spark global outrage that could very well lead to a third world war, given the fact that Taiwan is a major player in the US sphere of influence in South East Asia, the idea that they would bluntly used CBMs to just outright destroy Taiwan infers that the detente style hostility of North and South Korea apply to this situation, which by concessions of Dian Xiaoping during the 1980s reformist movement, had become thankfully defused over lucrative trade incentives.

    China at worst will simply use its modern military to created an opposing political market in terms of arms trade. A conflict on any major industrial nation, particularly an allied member on the permanent security council, will be so blindingly devastating it would be insane to attempt.

    If the USA can freely destroy offside governments and diplomatically manipulate the UN to allow this in spite of opposition, why can't China do the same? Could you say they wouldn't?

    Because Taiwan is economically, militarily and politically much more important than either Iraq or Afghanistan.


    War with Taiwan will mean war with the USA, as both treaties are still active.

    Why do you think the US 7th Fleet is so powerful in East Asia, and is still increasing in size? Not only because of the US's Japanese and Korean commitments, but also as a deterrence for China, who would be crushed in the air and on the sea; it is only the Chinese land based army that poses any threat.

    ahh i see, so its alright for the US to boast the world's most powerful army, but as soon as someone challenges that, with, let me assure you, a budget that is less then 6times the size of the US budget (USA has a budget equivalent to the chinese one, only instead of it being in Yuans, its in dollars, the number figure is the same).

    While China largely is not a threat, these ultra hawks in their nations is scary stuff. Then again, ultra-nationals are stupid/scary everywhere.

    Especially when they are not at any type of a direct threat from its neighbors, building up a huge army just sounds disingenuous. Then again, China thinks they are pulling a fast one over the world, but people are smarter than that.

    Not that its a bad thing. This kind of puts pressure on the US, who can't go running around with their armies around the world promoting "peace" as they would like to call it. The small increase they showed to the world also helps from over excessive use of force, so they can enmasse an attack force without the UN to come down on their heads.

    Oh c'mon. Any Chinese will tell you that this is complete and utter BS. We've already had too many wars over the past centuries and we fully understand the cost and terror of war. Trust me, military buildup is the last thing on our minds!! 99.99% of Chinese are more concerned about what to eat for dinner than some petty post cold war imaginary arms race. Even Japan, France, UK, Germany, Italy etc spends more on their military than China, not to mention Big Brother USA, which spends 30 times more than China on their military and 10 times more than the second military spender (UK).

    You Americans are suffering from some kind of post cold war persecutory delusions, that's probably why you spend so much on your military and are overly sensitive to our proportionate military growth rate. We dont have armies stationed at your borders and are never going to do anything to you, in fact, I'm pretty sure if a war were to occur the US army stationed at Okinawa would be the ones to fire the first shot. >:(

    It is scary to think that China can afford to continue to lose a war up untill the end because of their nearly endless amounts of troops. Even with our advanced army in the US, do we have enough people to stop them? China has pretty good weapnry too, what would stop them from taking Japan or anywhere?

    The real threat to the world is not China, it's America. Faking an Terrorist attack and killing it's own people to invade a poor and defensless country.

    Then lying about Iraq, to invade and killing millions of people again.

    Who will be the next one? The Americans are mad. The world need's China. It's the only country that could, and will, stop the Ameicans.
