China's military

Just something I ran into while browsing Google. Pretty crazy, I think we are witnessing the birth of another super-power.

That propaganda video honestly doesn't impress me at all. Most of that was rather old technology. The real threat from China is economic, not military.

China has secret military bases. We might not know what weapon they have

We have all our latest and greatest tactics, technology and show it all off our experience in our TV commercials too. Oh wait. Ya that's secret stuff.

While I think you are probably correct. The US military is ahead of the Chinese I don't think the gap is all that big and certainly not is big as we'd like to believe.

War with China would by a hugely bad idea.

And as another poster already said. Our issue with China isn't military, it's economic. If any military action ever happened with us and China, China would just forclose all the loans they have given the US and bankrupt us. Then we wouldn't be able to buy oil for our military. Oddly our armed forces need oil....

War with China would in fact be a hugely bad idea, and I haven't seen anybody say it would be a good one. There are far more effective ways of turning them into a democracy.

By the way, I was not just the poster who said we would beat them militarily, I was also the poster who said the true issue is economic.

I agree that the threat is an economic one. If they did try to start a war, however, I would put my money on the US. Not a single thing in that video was that impressive, just a bunch of wasted, communist taxpayers' money.
