    Chinese have an unlimited surplus of young fighting age men with no wives to be able to send anywhere in the world it is fact that they have boasted that they can field an army of 300 million men and women. China has had a long history of being the economic trading superpower of the world, perhaps they are attempting to rule the world economically again. Can we stop it? We do have a large army but we are already sick of these resource wars.

    I agree with the estimate of China's immense "militia." There are tens of millions of young men and women moving around the countryside looking for work, living in temp shelters, footloose and with a deep anger about their fate of being shut out of the ancient, sacred family tradition they share with all Chinese, The unattached mobs of young men have always been tender boxes. This is so immense it is hard to grasp its implications. Since China is allying with Russia, Pakistan, Iran, and central Asia with all of that oil and gas, it's a potentially great global shift, if they can solve their bureaucracy problems.

    The Chinese et al. will probably buy gold quietly and slowly to avoid rapid price hikes. It will be hard to detect directly, but people like Soros and Faber might have sources to watch. This could become a massive move toward a new currency base to escape the U.S. Fed's tsunami of trash paper and its Global Inflation Bubble.

    World leaders and financial people always think that China is 1.3 billion or 1300 million people economy and they say China is very important for the world economic growth.

    World people forget that a country with 1300 million people can build an army of 300 million or 400 million soldiers. Country with high population will have military ambitions and desire to rule the world financially or militarily.

    Look on both sides of the road/street before you cross it.

    If China has 700 million men and China loses 300 million men and 100 million women in big wars then China will have 400 million men and 400 million women. This is perfect for future population explosion. China will remove/abolish one-child policy.

    No need for logistics. China will start conquering countries close to its border and they will keep moving ahead for the world. Similar to what Hitler did in year 1939.

    Iraq feilded a massive army as well... In today's techno battlefeild, it's not about the numbers, it's about the willingness of the individual solder.

    Iraqs military blunder was that they used conscripts. As a general rule, forcing someone to join the military leads to solders that have less "staying power" in the realm of moral.

    Their armys numbers mean nothing if the solders don't want to be in the fight

    China is an oil importer, and most of that oil passes through the Straights of Malacca. Its army of 200 million won't help it fuel its economy of 1.3 billion as well as the oil supply does.

    What good is a huge army if you can't move them? Using carrier sized ships, it would take an armada of 10,000 ships that they don't have, can't afford and couldn't defend.

    That's assuming they aren't moving over land.

    Course, the logistic problem is still there.

    Why fight for it when they can just own the whole thing without a single shot fired?

    China deploys nuclear missiles on Indian border: US

    China has deployed more advanced and survivable solid-fuel nuclear capable CSS-5 MRBM missiles against India as a 'deterrent posture', Pentagon has said warning that a high degree of mistrust continues to strain their bilateral ties.
