it should be at least equal to the US budget...

to defend the motherland from foreign incursions...

IF china is ready & commit to combat then the answer is a big YES (that's what the US does 24/7) if not then why bother such a waste in budget when china can improve the rural regions  {:soso_e114:}{:soso_e113:}

That's an interesting question. I think given the sheer size of China's population, a further rise in military expenditure is understandable. China also has ambitions to become a serious player in terms of aircraft carriers and stealth fighters and all of that needs to be financed.
The United States does seem to fear China - opinion polls confirm that. But look at the military fear mongering spread by the United States. There is no reason for China to reign in spending on their army, navy and airforce. They have the money and ambition so they'll go for it and nobody can really stop them...

Power balance means no war. The United States will never fight China as long as China keeps getting stronger.

According to some Governments, China does not have a choice ..

1) India ...Indian Navy vessels easily outperform and outnumber China's Navy
2) Japan .. Japan leads in every category of military hardware .. in number and performance .. (Except nukes).. in a conventional war ...China would loose easily
3) US ..US goverment report  states .. in one simple word about Chinese Defence Force .. "GARBAGE"

China .... your gonna have to lift your game ...
