Trying to follow the example of the West, reducing its size while trying to catch up on technology, China is ending up with neither the advantage of size or the edge of superior technology.  In this situation, the correct way foreign powers are planning to crack up the PLA is to create multiple fronts, like the Korean peninsula, the South China Sea, the East China Sea (Diaoyudao), the Indo-Chinese border, Xinjiang uprising, and soon, Tibetan uprising, and if inflation hits the fan, another TAM-style uprising.  Lacking enough manpower to defend its borders and enforce its laws, the China of 2013 promises to be a very difficult one to govern, protect, and prosper.

IF CHINA WANTS TO DREAM A LITTLE, THIS IS WHAT IT OUGHT TO DREAM ABOUT.

China's GDP growth has dropped to a historic low of 7.7% and promises to slide even lower.  The problem is not just the loss of China's export market due to global recession and Yuan appreciation.  The problem is that the TYPE of domestic consumption that the economic planners are promoting is totally inadequate to keep industry humming and workers working.  Instead of trying to increase personal consumption, China should try to increase collective or societal consumption, which includes having more soldiers and sailors, training them better, equipping them better, and hiring more scientists to do basic research in every field, and to promote applied research as well.  Improving health care equipment and training and manpower keeps the productive workforce producing more efficiently and for a longer period of time also.  These kinds of COLLECTIVE SOCIAL CONSUMPTION is what will propel China back to a 9% GDP growth rate, year after year, while its defense, infrastructure, knowledge, and technology get an across the board upgrade to the forefront of world standards.
