china is smarter then all the superpower in the world for the last 5 century

PLA need to be stronger. the question is in want way. they need more R&D, better training and air carrier within the next two year. the space station is still 10 year from being completed. unlike US and some of the former superpower. china is more focus on economic power. arm power can not last for ever and hurt the image of the country beside their pocket book.

the growth of the chinese PLA is 5 time faster then forcast
the growth of the chinese economic is 9 time faster then forcast.

the question is when would china over take the US and Everything i say rought about 15 year. mostly the GDP would take that long. but if USA decide to go to war again anytime soon then it would that 5 year. like attack iran, korean, or some other country they can bully around.

Yes, but technology-wise only that is...

Don't forget: all of Saddam's loyal Republican Guards were no match for laser guided smart bombs; F-16's, Panava Tornados, Mirage-2000's, and F-117's which hunts like owls at night...   

Manpower-wise? I think the world is switching from the soldier boy to geeks with the ability to man handle a war games consul and/or a computer keyboard.  Even fighter planes of the future will be operated by remote from hundreds if not thousands of miles away from the war's epicenter and these people will be deemed as assets rather than as collaterial damages rather than as military casualties.

Actual military personnel's (the fighting soldier) of course are and will always be indispensable but the number of such personnel's will continue to dramatically be down sized and their duties limited to defense and holding patterns rather than the dash and overwhelm offense duties military personnel's used to have against enemy positions as in the past.

And the next phase of military rivalry? Yes!, "assassin mace (or spacewars)" will and unavoidably be a dictating and a decisive factor of all future world armed conflicts but this won't be until the 2020-2025 time frame at the very soonest  because it will take that much time for all these States, i.e., the US, the Russians, the Chinese, and I speculate even the Indians to actually be able to put the science together and to put it to work.

But, if push becomes shove, I have the suspicion that both the US and China are the only two nations that can do a crush program on it and have it crudely implemented and put into motion.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

The issue at point? The issue is the lack of Marketing and down-playing our own capabilities by Beijing in order to avoid the so-called China Threat perceptions towards outsiders. Without proper PR even our own people believe we are a weak country who therefore need a "stronger" military power. Without proper PR about our own Nuclear Deterrence capabilities, even these aggressive Imperialists would publicly and openly discussing "successful" first-strike strategies on China.

Nobody in Beijing would ever forget that the sole reason for us to be able to concentrate on economic development is because no sane soul dare to attack us. And therefore, ever since the reforms and opening-up started, it has always been the PLA that benefited most from the developments. But even a growing military power should go step by step.  

The First Gulf War has shown us that numbers did not matter at all anymore, technology is the future. Therefore, PLA manpower has been downsized for the sake of faster technological advancements. After all, resources is no where unlimited, but count on that we can easily add a few millions up to tens and hundreds patriots [depending on how much we need] in time of real war. With our manufacturing capabilities these hardware output can easily catch up. So people should not worry about the size of our army at the current moment.

But now our technological gap with the biggest Imperialist Threat to mankind and China is narrowing down so rapidly, and basically has come up with more creative counter-tech for each single area of threat. Our next playing field should be able to develop the capabilities of defending our interests abroad, no matter how far away. This will include defending our allies in time of need. Then you will see that NUMBERS will matter again soon.

Anyhow, for now, we should really not shy away of adequately and effectively PR our real military power, or even make it stronger than it might be, that is always the best deterrence against these aggressive greedy Imperialist from the West [some of you go ahead blablabla away the generalization of "West", fact is that it is the West that has been causing all the wars and sufferings]. People WILL KNOCK on our doors ANYHOW for business regardless of how many "China Threat" fear & warmongers cry and yell about our military power. Some knowingly that China can defend their interests will even switch side all together, instead of only half-heartedly and quietly. By then, we will see an even faster development of our economical and military strength.

They should make modern day PLA movies instead of historic (ancient) ones, and by-pass in ten-fold whatever Hollywood is doing for the past decades!

And have a Chinese version of American Army. It works. And I like videogames more!

It's all about the script and director! Give Bingo [aka Stephen Chow] or some of those others the budget and you will stop these youngsters whining about that the PLA should get stronger blablabla.
