    China closer to matching modern militaries

    Pentagon report: China closer to matching modern militaries

    China's military buildup has made impressive gains that pushed the Communist Party-controlled People’s Liberation Army closer to matching modern militaries, according to the Pentagon’s annual report to Congress made public Wednesday.

    They have four times our population, I don't see how anyone would ever think we'd maintain military superiority forever. Population brings economic strength, and economic strength brings military strength.

    Companies selling products to China is an inevitable result of capitalism. It cannot be avoided.

    Short of fracturing like Russia did, they're going to run the world. Get used to it.

    There's a good chance, but a lot can wrong for them before that happens. They are going to have a wee problem maitaining an authoritarian government as the population grows wealthier and becomes even more capitalistic. And it's not unlikely that they could crash their economy in the next 10-15 years.

    We well eventually fight a war with China. Once they think they can get around or defeat our technology, they will.

    Bank on it

    I don't think so, for the same reason we never fought a war with the USSR.

    The error in that is you assume that other cultures and other nations have the same values, same motivations and use the same logic that we do.

    You don't think China values not being turned into a lake of molten lava?

    In addition to that, don't forget that China holds over a trillion dollars in U.S. debt or that we're China's second biggest export market.

    A - The people and businessmen of China have no real strength or ability to affect the Chinese government. That entity will allow them to play around at a semblance of a free market for as long as it benefits the government

    Don't believe in that bull****. The ruthless bastards will continue to do business with us and other nations because it brings capital into the country, which they need to *build* the modernization of the army/country. Once the opportunity of superiority exists, they will go ape**** against us.
