    Good story about China and its military buildup.
    This is forcing the US to spend billions of dollars to develop another bomber, the long range strike bomber!

    The US military is stretched thin because we are a global military force and are involved militarily through treaties and commitments all over the world. The Chinese military is concentrated in one area. The threat is what is important here. If the Chinese are perceived as more powerful in the region then it will be they not us who influence events in the region. Even Japan, a long time foe of the Chinese, might have to start allying with the Chinese instead of the USA.

    When I was a teen I remember reading a book, can't for the life of me remember now which book it was but some unknown reason one phrase stuck out and it's the only thing I remember from the book.

    The Eagle will defeat the Bear but the Dragon will overcome them all. Weird, eh?

    China is hiding a huge internal problem, the next war they fight might just be with themselves.

    China's military is almost entirely used for internal control. The leadership there really is riding a tiger of ever increased consumer expectation. The fact they have a huge imbalance of young men to young women is just one worry.

    They are frightened of the citizenry for very good reason. All they can think to do short term is keep the army large, under ferocious discipline, and moving all the time from province to province to make sure the army doesn't side with the people in case of disturbance.

    They have the experience of what happened in Romania, Albania, Russia, Hungary and Germany when they lost control. Life for those in power in China must be a constant nightmare.

    china is a very scary country. i seen on tv that we are selling water to china. they are dumping it on the ground to recharge their aquifers. a lot of rich people or people with resources like the bush's have bought land with water under it, mostly in 3rd world countries, yes our precious great bush family are not letting those people have water. they are saving it due to they believe water will be the next oil. china is not just building an army they are preserving their country. plus they are taking care of the business of their country. if we not careful we may be living under their control

    Historically when a country has internal problems they will engineer a crisis with another country leading to a conflict that will instill national pride. What is the one thing that the Chinese want? Taiwan. They have been building up for a take over of that island for decades. If it wasn't for the shadow of the USA they would have already taken it. Now that they have unleashed their enormous industrial capacity they are getting the capacity to force the US to stay out of the southeast Asia. Its going to be an interesting 20 years in that region.
