Is the PLA a Paper Dragon?



China's military has its weaknesses. But it's strong enough to dominate Asia, thanks in part to America.
By MICHAEL AUSLIN

Beijing -- China's boasts about its military may soon be put to the test, as new tension with Vietnam in the South China Sea comes on the heels of a months-long standoff with the Philippines.
How confident Chinese leaders are in the strength of their armed forces will play a big role in how far they push their territorial claims.
It also will indicate whether Beijing is trying to bluff America into staying out of these controversies roiling Asia.

Well  .........


I certainly hope that just because the PVA caused the US its largest ever retreat in history in Korea  ...........

And then held them to a stalemate for three years ...........

That they would in the modern world see that as relevant now  ..........

More idiots...

Of course the US isn't going to take a big role or stick it's nose in at this stage  ...

A Gulf of Tonkin incident can easily be arranged.

When did prudence and truth enter US politics?
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.
