Still no answer. Please try having a conversation instead of just parroting CCP propganda.THE UNITED STATES IS OUT TO MILITARILY CONQUER THE WORLD.
CHINA SPENDS 60 BILLION A YEAR AND PERCENTAGES MEAN NOTHING HERE.
THE REAL USA MILITARY COSTS ARE IN THE MULTI-TRILLIONS, ALL EXPERTLY HIDDEN FROM VIEW, OF COURSE.
CAN'T HAVE BOTH, A WAR MACHINE TO CONQUER THE WORLD AND TUNNELS.
IN CHINA WE ARE SPENDING 300 BILLION DOLLARS IN 3 YEARS ON A HIGH-SPEED, NATION-WIDE TRAIN NETWORK THAT IS RUNNING NOW IN SOME PLACES. AT A MINIMUM IT IS TWICE AS FAST AS A CAR, AND AT A MAXIMUM, THE SPEED IS 330 MPH. IT REALLY GOES.
Then why is China building a war machine?
China's military spending:
2009 - 15% growth from previous year.
2008 - 17.6% growth from previous year.
2007 - 17.8% growth from previous year.
Average 1996-2006 11% growth from previous year. <quoted text>
Why the huge increases? <quoted text>
Why do you think the Chinese have been increasing thier military spending recently?
