China's PPP GDP is $12 trillion, so its actual defense budget could be between $600-700 billion in 2013.
It is the biggest industrial power, with steel production approaching 650 million tons and electricity production approaching 4,500,000 Gwh.
China has emerged as an economic and military super power, the manifestation of which can no longer be hidden.
China is successful because of the effective leadership provided by the Communist government in Beijing, and especaly the pragmatic efficient reform policies of Deng Xiaoping since the late 1970's.
Such policies have allowed massive capital from the USA, Japan and other Western countries to be invested in China.
Jewish capital and guidance has also helped China since 1949.
(i) Communism is a Jewish quasi religion, and even though China is becoming a capitalist country it is still officially a Communist state, so Jews feel special affinity to it; but such emotional attachment is not necessarily replicated for ALL communist states such as North Korea, Cuba or Vietnam. Jewish elite love and affection is selective, illogical and whimsical...Quija board obscurantist policies that is the perverse preserve of the anointed Shekel. Jewish Communism killed 40--100 million Chinese in the 1950's to 1960's, depending on your source. Mao passed, as did the Gang of Four. The Communist Party privately accepted the mistakes and reformed, and moved on. Now they have had 30 years of total success.
(ii) The House of Rothschilds based in London and Europe have special affinity to China based on the red dragon symbol......the Rothschilds are still among the most powerful Jewish families in the world, and what they think and feel has implications for the world.
(iii) The Chinese are light skinned people, and for the ultra-racists in the Jewish elite structure that is a very important factor for liking a nation and people.
(iv) China is an exciting ancient civilization, which has been the richest nation for many centuries save for the ravages of 19th century and 20th century Western colonialism into its territory......so it is human nature to admire such an illustrious GREAT nation.....not just by Jews.
The Jews have unleashed the USA in the Greater Middle East, and now Africa, whilst China quietly and not so quietly develops.
Jews such as Hilary Clinton linked to the Rothschilds talk about sending 100,000 American university students to study in China, whilst Kissinger the Jew says Iran is the Greatest threat to the world...also linked to the Rothschilds (I think when they don't bat for the USA, but instead follow Jewish tribal elder policy based in London they are referred to as Atlantists)
However "Esoteric" arguments can only carry for so long and so far, even with the best deployment of semantics, propaganda and BBC deception.
China will become the biggest economy with the best military that such an economy can buy.......and a confrontation with China is a real possibility, (i) because the USA has once too often stepped on a resource that China needs, but the supply of which the USA has subverted, or (ii) the USA backs a minor power against China in China's own back yard.....which China cannot and will not ignore.
The best outcome is of-course that there is no confrontation, and the USA declines peacefully and gracefully in relative terms, and accepts the coming Chinese hegemony.
The USA is not known for confronting big powers since WWII and especially since 1962 and the Cuban missile crisis. It prefers to attack piddy little powers which are thoroughly weak anyway, with an army of "Coalition of the willing" proxy powers. On that basis the USA with its "warriors" of child killers, wedding party attackers, rapists, drug peddlers, Droners and whores for Wall Street will not face down an emergent China in a conventional confrontation.
CHINA'S emergence is good for the world.....not based on the logic of the Jew elite, or because one likes Chinese food, or one speaks perfect Mandarin, or that one is versed in Chinese history or culture.....but that the steady reliable action of China in the world has been consistently mature, CIVILIZED and positive for the development of humans of whatever shade and ethnic background, into the next level.
Long live China.

China reportedly “sunk” a mock US aircraft carrier with a state of the art missile during a war game in the Gobi Desert recently, fueling concerns that the newly emerging superpower is increasingly eyeing the United States as a military rival.
“The People’s Liberation Army has successfully sunk a US aircraft carrier, according to a satellite photo provided by Google Earth,” reports the Want China Times,” adding that, “A satellite image reveals two large craters on a 200-meter-long white platform in the Gobi desert used to simulate the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. The photo was first posted on SAORBATS, an internet forum based in Argentina. Military analysts believed the craters would have been created by China’s DF-21D anti-ship missile, dubbed the “carrier killer.”
The article cites a report which appeared in the state-run Global Times boasting of how the new missile has the capability to strike aircraft carriers 2,000 kilometers away. The report was careful to add that the missile, which is being stationed at strategic locations around China’s coastline, does not have the technical capability to reach America, a moot argument given that US aircraft carriers are located at numerous different points on the globe at any one time.
As Business Insider notes, the report’s legitimacy is bolstered by the fact that, “The China Times is a 63 year old Taiwanese paper slightly slanted toward unification, but with a solid reputation and accurate reporting.”
Although the test in the Gobi Desert was supposedly successful, defense expert Roger Cliff points out that targeting a real aircraft carrier at sea would be significantly more difficult.
“The thing to keep in mind is that, in order for China to successfully attack a U.S. navy ship with a ballistic missile,” Cliff told The Diplomat, “it must first detect the ship, identify it as a U.S. warship of a type that it wishes to attack … [then] over-the-horizon radars used to detect ships can be jammed, spoofed, or destroyed; smoke and other obscurants can be deployed … and when the missile locks on to the target its seeker can be jammed or spoofed.”
However, the fact that China is targeting a mock US aircraft carrier as the main focus of one of its war game exercises is sure to set alarm bells ringing, especially amidst an undercurrent of tension created as a result of China’s recent spat with Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea. Last week, Japan warned that it would fire on Chinese aircraft to prevent violations of its airspace.
The Pentagon’s recent geopolitical pivot made it clear that China was the primary military threat to the United States.
Threats on behalf of Chinese military officials to target the United States have increased in recent years.
In September last year, Zhang Zhaozhong, rear admiral at China’s National Defense University, was quoted in the state-run People’s Daily as bragging that China would comfortably defeat Japan in a war and that Beijing should prepare for the United States to become involved in the conflict.
In December 2011, Zhaozhong also warned that China “will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third world war.”
Earlier this year, Zhaozhong reacted to the announcement that the United States had developed a new high-tech stealth destroyer warship by saying China could use fishing boats laden with explosives to carry out suicide attacks against the U.S. Navy.
“It would be a goner,” Zhaozhong told state broadcaster CCTV’s military channel.
In July 2005, Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu boldly threatened the United States with a nuclear attack if it became embroiled in a conflict between China and Taiwan, with which the US has a mutual defense pact.
“If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition onto the target zone on China’s territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons,” Chenghu told reporters. “We Chinese will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xian [in central China]. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds … of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese,” he added.
In January 2011, China changed its military policy to allow pre-emptive nuclear attacks on other countries.
