    BEIJING: China's defence minister has put aside diplomatic tact and said the country's military will prepare itself for "military conflict in every strategic direction" in the next five years. The military will speed up modernization and development of equipment, he said.

    "We may be living in peaceful times, but we can never forget war, never send the horses south or put the bayonets and guns away," defence minister Liang Guanglie said in an interview published in state-backed newspapers. China's pace and scale of military modernization and construction of military related infrastructure has caused alarm among neighbours like India, South Korea and Japan.

    The way GoI is worried about a 2 front war with China and Pakistan. It is China now, which is worried about a multi-fold war with it's neighbors - namely India, SK, Japan, Taiwan, Brunei, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia. GoI should reach out more to these countries in terms of defense agreements.

    This is the way to go. Forming solid pacts with other nations will allow for these nations not to focus on massing military might to counter the Chinese threat, but make more selective advances that allow for a more solid, technologically advanced, unified front to present to China.

    As for the Chinese, well... the deceitful are ever wary of deceit.

    过去五年,在各级政府和人民群众的支持下,我军统筹推进各个战略方向军事斗争准备,信息化条件下防卫作战能力明显增强。
    In the past five years, under the support of our government and our people, PLA has improved the preparation of military conflict in every strategic directions, and has highly improved hi-tech defense ability.

    Seems your media fooled you again.:happy_7:

    I would suggest that your country should stay focused on the peaceful and harmonious co existence with its neighbours in the East Asia and South East Asia. THe consequences off any misadventure will be at very high price to the Chinies economy and its people. Your country will most likely have to face the response from not just USA but the combined power of East Asian and South East Asian nations. You also have disputes with some of the Central Asian countries. You choose and think it through. Illegallly occupied Tibet is also another flash point. It was never a part of China to begin with. Read the history than reply.
