    In its 'comprehensive' appraisal of historical and social components? Of course it is. These 'concerns' are military in nature.

    An army marches on its stomach. Overlook that at your peril.

    Well of course these concerns are military in nature. What other concerns do you think the Pentagon reports to congress about?

    None whatsoever, which is why they fall so short of the mark.

    There's this thing. It's called scaremongering. Our respective administrations in particular are adept at exploiting the collective stupidity of their people. Indeed, they count on it. How often does intel of any immediately pressing worth trickle down into the public arena for dissection? Never, right? You might begin with that, and ask yourself just what reactions are likely to be provoked.

    Gotta have an enemy, brah. It can't be Russia anymore, cos everyone knows they're ****ed.

    Well now you open up a whole different story. I'm well aware of propaganda, fear mongering, and disinformation from our government. Projected for domestic consumption to garner support for the next war for purposes such as feeding the very hungry MIC. So your not saying that the Pentagon is irrelevant, but like American (the poster) you believe the Pentagon is justifying a budget increase. And that the Chinese military is no threat whatsoever?

    "China could be able of reaching its political goals even before the US localizes all the necessary forces for a full-scale counterattack," Kashin said.

    That and the necessity of hoodwinking the electorate. There must be a threat abroad or threats at home are more conspicuous. People are suckers. China's a paper tiger.

    What about the independent groups and individuals expressing the same concerns but haven't this alleged pentagon agenda to which you speak?

    What of them? Any large-scale BS will have its adherents and partners in crime. Don't mistake me. Any criticism to that effect isn't reserved for the US alone.

    Private groups, think tanks, analysts and academics that don't have a pentagon budget to defend or its agenda, all of whom have papers on the growing threat of Chinas military?
