I think perhaps you misunderstand the "Western Concerns" you are speaking of here. China is long overdue a modernization of it's military forces. The concept of mass people to overcome a threat is no longer valid - since almost all the major military forces in the world can attack or defend from greater distances then the old battlefields.

China's current military buildup and modernization is welcomed by the western world overall, except when they preceive development of strictly "Offensive Weapon" development. Don't get excited here however, yes the US specifically and Russia have great arsenals of "urely Offensive weapons". (so of course they object and carry concern).

Aside of all the objections and press objections, China must protect it's people and it's security as a nation - so I am sure they will do so without this agust panel of experts!

china is able to protect herself 100%. no nation on earth could contemplate attacking china. After taiwan lost the ability in 70s, its just impossible.
Maybe china can invade taiwan and occupy taiwan soon, but at what cost? Puerto Rico = money talks, no need for nationalism. finland, fear talks, pragmatism. and now what?

china should wait for money to talk


let the yankees ruin themselves with their defence spending (/ isrerali R+D budget) like ancient rome did.

let them contain, china has no wishes to expand so containment matters nothing, right?

No country on earth can hope to invade china now, or ever in the foreseeable future without suffering a terrible defeat. china faces no threat now or in the future

the only people who can bring china down are chinese , from within. and contrary to the comical bullcrap some chinese tell me, the USA, JAPAN and all other countries have absolutely no intention to occupy taiwan if china doesnt.

Money spent on democratisation, equality, developing economic levers, developing a harmonious society and internal security are china's best options. tempting, rather than forcing. showing taiwan that CCp is not corrupt like taiwan ( thats a long way off) oh wait, im not that smart, thats what they are doing.

Of course China should be as strong militarily as she wants and needs to be.

i just wish that in this day and age the monies could be spent on other things.
Health care, education, R&D and environmental programs immediately spring to mind.

It's a shame.
