Maybe not. 1. Our leaders are still lack political will and obsessed with so called â€œharmoniousâ€ society while the whole government system is deeply corrupted, lack of transparency and social justice. 2. Our generals are still interested in spending billions of dollars purchasing weapons from other country which indicates they are not fully confident of our own equipment (General Guo boxiong is currently in Moscow on a shopping spree) 3. Our weapon development is still heavily relying on reverse engineering and copycat, lack of innovation even though we have some new jet developed recently, which means we still have a long way to go on R&D 4. Our military force has been lack of real combat experience for too long (more than 20 years) and has been contaminated by â€œharmonious societyâ€ as well. Itâ€™s a big question mark if they can face some real challenge 5. Our family size has been reduced to the bare minimum thanks to one child policy. A lot of our children are spoiled and parents are reluctant to let their children service the country 6. Our economic structure is still outbound oriented and too many jobs are tied with exporting business . Our country is heavily rely on importing resources from foreign countries and both aforementioned points make us very vulnerable should some major crisis happen These are some of my personal concerns about China. Iâ€™m afraid we are not completely ready yet to face all challenges but it doesnâ€™t mean we should give up our interest to please everyone. Conflict and war is not solution but significant concession is also not an option. It requires a lot of wisdom, courage and calculation to sail in such choppy water. But can our government accomplish it?
