    The Chinese Navy Commander is wrong by atleast 2 years. And he doesn't seem to be getting his prediction right anytime soon!

    You gotta give it to the Chinese! Even when they were in a not-so-great situation economically in the 1980s, they were making such audacious claims. No wonder some of the Chinese kids who post on defence forums sound so out-of-the-world! Is it too much testosterone or too much melamine in their diet?

    China's 'peaceful' predictions that they are way off, is another disingenuous assertion to encourage complacency in all.

    They are making great and phenomenal progress in the defence arena.

    It is time to sit up and smell the coffee.

    The US is correct in scuppering up the peripheral countries and containing China!

    Even Japan is abandoning all the pacifist claptrap with the encouragement from the US.

    The US policy has even disarmed Myanmar and is about to topple an outpost of China looking into the Indian Ocean!

    The US has signed a bill to stop aid to Pakistan. So, another cookie of China is set to crumble.

    Japan does not need US' encouragement to take a more defensive approach to China. Japan of all countries in the SEA region has suffered the most provocations from China. The neighboring countries in the South China Sea (the Philippines call the waters adjacent to their West as "West Philippine Sea" now) also do not need reminders from anyone of the growing danger that is China.

    The world caught a glimpse of China's naval ambitions through the so-called "island chain" strategy revealed by Navy Commander Liu Huaqing during the 1980s.

    US making a significant marine base near Australia.
    South Korea steps up it's defense.
    Japan leaving it's pacifist nature and may start defense exports.
    Vietnam in challenging mood against bullying by China.
    Burma tilting towards US.
    India having plans of sending it's navy in South China sea.

    So more and more countries waking up against ever increasing Chinese threats and so called "peaceful Chinese rise".

    Yah, with 2500 soldiers.
    Of course, North Korea got nothing to do with this.
    Of course, the failing economy got nothing to do with it.
    Yah, You have just found out about this when the fact is that it has been going on since the 70s. Where were you for the past 40 years? Wait, dont tell me you were born just recently....
    Having plans is the key words here.

    The more the merrier. :namaste:

    Good point about the number of troops in Australia, but they are US Marines and would not like to be called soldiers.

    If that were so easy, it would be stormed by the Chinese themselves, rather than rioting now and then!
