How the world’s largest military stacks up to the US armed forces

A recent report from the US Congressional Research Service outlines China’s 2.3 million-member armed forces and sheds light on misconceptions from Western military analysts. Simply put, the report challenges the idea that Westerners can understand China’s military and foreign-policy decisions without first understanding Chinese philosophy and culture of warfare. Unlike the US, China has a media apparatus controlled by the state, so its military reports lack the transparency established by a free press … for more, go to ... 

China needs to further strengthen its military against saboteurs and invaders

KUALA LUMPUR (January 2018): Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has rightly identified “three tough battles” in pursuit of reforms for the 1.4 billion communists.

China’s four decades of runaway development has made it imperative for reforms and innovations to ensure sustainable domestic and global progress.

Li identified the three tough battles as:

> reducing poverty;
> pollution control; and
> reducing risks in the financial system and economy.

However, I Love Malaysia-China Silk Road notes that winning the “three battles” would come to naught or fail if it does not tackle a “fourth battle” - global sabotages and threats to check China’s growth.

And the head saboteur is no other than the jealous war-waging United States of America (US). Read this for context: (It’s now the US-India-Australia-Japan vs China-Russia Combo?)

It is crystal clear to the rest of the world that the US, which has been waging war with sovereign nations after World War ll, can be trusted to uphold global peace.

The US uses “aid” as the front and excusew to serve its foreign economic and defence agendas. In some cases, like Iraq, they waged war and occupied the country to “milk dry” Iraq’s oil.

Did we hear wrong that the US decided to invade and occupy Iraq because the late President Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction” (WMDs). Did the US and UN find any WMDs?

China thus has no choice but to fight the “three battles” to achieve sustainable domestic and global economic progress, and at the same time solidify its military and defence.

The US’ global economic and military influence is diminishing fast and it now akin to a desperado resorting to all ways to check or stop China global progress.

And, the US’ animosity towards China is no more subtle or diplomatic. It is direct as seen in statements made by the US and its allies, the military of India, Australia and Japan.

China’s mighty military is the only thing that is keeping the US and others from engaging or trying to occupy China like what happened pre-World War ll.

However, when dealing with desperados, anything can happen!

Here’s what Li said as reported by Reuters and posted by The Star Online:

"China must win 'three tough battles' while pursuing reforms - Premier Li

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said the country must reduce poverty, control pollution and reduce risks, challenges he described as "three tough battles" for the economy, as policymakers push for reforms and innovation this year.

Economic growth beat the government's target last year, good news for policymakers looking to reduce leverage in the economy, curb risks in the financial system, and contain pollution that has plagued the country following years of runaway development.

At a plenary meeting of the State Council, or Cabinet, on Monday, where a draft version of the government work report was approved, Li also said China should stick to supply-side reforms this year even as it makes efforts to secure good growth prospects.

In Li's report, due out at the opening of the annual meeting of parliament in March, the government is expected to set its economic targets for this year.

The year 2018 will mark the mid-point of a five-year government plan.

In its plan for 2016-2020, the government aims to achieve average annual GDP growth at or above 6.5 percent, add at least 50 million urban jobs, and cut energy intensity by 15 percent, among other goals.
