The Anglo media and Defense Secretary Robert Gates keep lying about the real strength of the Chinese military.
Gates keep claiming that the American military will remain much more powerful than the Chinese military in the future. Gates is threatening China with the supposedly omnipotent might of the US military.
Gates is lying.
China already has a bigger military potential than America.
If the government in China spent 7% of the real GDP of China on the Chinese military ( like the US spends 7% of the US GDP on the military ), the Chinese military would already be much bigger and much more powerful than the US military.
The Chinese military would already have more advanced weapons than the US military if the government in China had not been refusing to spend money on the Chinese military.
The Chinese military has been starved of funds for the past 20 years.
Can you imagine that the government in China is only spending 1% of the Chinese GDP on the Chinese military!
