Apparently it's not that high 50 million or more. Probably because it extends to just about every public sector from police to roads and construction. :laugh2:

They have always have more people than weapons. In the Koran war only one in 5 had a weapon. the others would follow along behind and when the guy with the weapon went down they picked it up and continued the attack.

We have equalizers. They are called artillery, rockets, high explosive warheads, air power and even nukes. And if we have to fight china don't think we won't use WMD's.

But in the one world pseudodemocracy, number of people will be all that matters to affect policy. The twin death memes of abortion and feminism (anti-family) have been used to hobble western populations.

First of all, why do we need a military the size of China? It's not like we are planning an invasion any time soon. China has mandatory military service.
China also has nuclear weapons. We don't need to match their production. Any nuclear exchange with China (or any country) is the end of life as we know it. If you think either nation can "win" a nuclear war, you need to take your fool head out of the sand.
Military hotheads who are gung ho to "nuke" another country need to watch a movie called "Threads." If that doesn't scare the shit out of you, then you are beyond hope. Not to mention beyond basic compassion.

You've got 300 million people, you're not going to get numbers in your military anywhere near China's. Besides, as Gaffer pointed out, you don't need them.

Nobody said anything about nuking another country. He was asking about china's military. And yes china has nukes. They don't have a way of delivering those nukes accept by bombers at this time. Unless china collapses as the soviets did you can expect them to become more militant in the future as their need of natural resources grows. The ones who will need to be most concerned will be south east asia, india and russia.

A limited use of nukes would not end the world as we know it. It would take a massive exchange to do that and china does not have that capability. Nor are they going to create a situation where it would be necessary. They are slowly discovering capitalism.

The irony about China is that economically there's so much inequality they need a communist revolution :laugh2:
