Chinese doctrine seems for me OK.

Minimal forces don't mean small, and wothless...
What are Switzerland's armed forces? And how many enemies EVER attacked Switzerland?

Former soldiers in Switzerland are permitted to keep their rifles. So if an army can get past those mountains, they have to deal with a well-armed, well-trained population in addition to the Swiss Army. Even the Germans were smart enough not to invade Switzerland, and they were still dumb enough to invade Russia.

That needs to be corrected, no doubt.

And in China we have little different, but also similar situation...

Huge population, most of them after even busic military training, easily coordinated by any local authority, but srtictly opposite to any foreign authorities, specially occupant.

Population is also well prepared to live in very hard conditions, and relatively more independent from high-tech then any potential occupant.

Then we have terrain... If tunnels and highways would be blown up - there is not a chance for quick marche of occupant army, and secured supply lines.

So there would be not even army, but masses of guerillas. Nam? Iraq? Afghanistan? None of that was in so good possition.
