"National defence is top priority for a nation..but had to ship home corpses."

It is tragic that those with the most military might forget this when starting a war onto others which have suffered from past wars. They write extensive tomes on how to prosecute a war strategy but they forget in the heat of their thoughts the tombs that have to be dug in the end when young men die on both sides.

China and Russia have suffered the most as victims and have had to go to war to protect their borders even after. Japan has forgotten her past and is now rearming for defense but with weapons that are for offense.

The US? Still jarhead military might galore. Generation after generation to no end.

But be careful about busting the economy from a militarisation budget race. That's what knocked out the old USSR.

I consider this small increase in defense spending to be a subtle message from the dominant faction in the CPC that China does not intend any military aggression despite the displays of toughness in the South China Sea. I hope this progressive and moderate faction is strengthened by the October congress of the CPC. It would be very responsible and patriotic for all Chinese citizens to join the CPC to influence the CPC in a progressive, moderate and peaceful direction. I think China is reaching a critical crossroads decision.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

We are talking about the illigal takeover of international waters

whatever.. the islands belong to China and what's more NO one has been prevented to sail on the claimed waters and no one will ever be. The US is creating all the problems, even so, the Chinese let their navy sail those waters under the excuse of 'freedom of navigation' but in fact all the US is achieving is creating bad blood ..!

Have a heart. Dusty's just spilled his milk.
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 enacted US 2016 DoD budget was $580.3 billion.  Obama's requested DoD budget for 2017 was $582.7 billion.  Trump pledged to raise the budget by 10% and rebuild the US military.  A 10% increase would bring the requested 2017 DoD budget to $640.9 billion... Trump plans on getting that by slashing the budgets for education and the environment.

That $640.9 billion US DoD budget would equate to 4.42 trillion RMB.  China's 2017 defense budget is estimated at 1.02 trillion RMB ($148 billion US), less that one fourth of the US budget.  The 7% hike in China's budget is reportedly the smallest in 7 years.

瞄准中东 中国五代机出口前景展望



My two cents on the subject



Logic speaks: for a Chinese product to penetrate foreign markets and compete with others name brands first time, my thinking is that this Chinese product have to be very very competitive. For this product to sell, the per unut cost of Chinese product thus, must have a price tag no more than a quarter (1/4) that of the price tag of any name brand of its equivalence in the market otherwise it would be a no sell for the Chinese as is with the case with Hyndai and KIA.



Example: if the Chinese tries to unload a BMW-knockoff, lets call it a M-WB for reference and for fun sakes, at the very same price as the real deal, the true and recognized name brand, BMW, naturally have the advantage over a replicated specimen - even if everything is exact same or superior in some cases.


Even at 1/2 the price of the real deal, this M-WB would still be in a disadvantage because its new and unrecognized. Therefore, The M-WB will need to reach its maturity as in the case of Hyundai and KIA for the consumer to want to invest in it.


China, thus, must target the lower end narket to sell its product and that means price tags @fraction (1/4) that of the name brands in the market.


This is to say, where China's defense budget is a quater that of the US budget, given the different variables between US and Chinese production costs, the equation should equate and everything should be relative.
