It makes no sense for China to spend so little on the military budget.

China should immediately triple military spending from 1.5% of the Chinese GDP to 4.5% of the Chinese GDP, then, the Chinese military would be 2 times bigger and 2 times more powerful than the US military.

If China triples military spending from 90 billion dollars to 270 billion dollars, given the fact that everything is so much cheaper in China, like a Chinese infantry rifleman being paid 1,200 dollars a year compared to a US infantry rifleman being paid 35,000 a year,  or like an assault rifle costing only 65 dollars in China compared to 900 dollars in the US, spending 270 billion dollars in China is equivalent to spending 1,620 billion dollars in the US, therefore, the Chinese military would become 2 times bigger and 2 times more powerful than the American army.

But why? We hear this a lot from bing and he makes no decent argument for doing so....and doing so would divert funds from far more important tasks of keeping the people happy. Power doesn't always come from the barrel of a weapon you know!

Chinese leaders are neglecting to protect the defense of the Chinese motherland.

Why are Chinese leaders refusing to spend at least 10% of the forex reserves of 3,000 billion dollars on military spending to build a strong Chinese army?

China should spend at least 10% of the forex reserves or 300 billion dollars on the military spending.

Given the cheaper costs in China,  300 billion dollars spent on the Chinese military is worth at least 1,500 billion dollars spent on the military in America.

The Chinese military should be 2 times bigger and 2 times more powerful than the US military!
