^ your just fcuken stupid Aussie... did you even read any of the articles... I provide third party links you provide more hot air...who wants to read that

bottom line any war will be a quick skirmish type war... one where the Chinese will have an initial advantage

anything more than that will involve Nukes....

China will not have the ability to destroy the world 50 times over but it will have the ability to destroy the world 1 time over... and thats all that really matters... plus once missiles start to fly... Russia will not take the risk that the USA is going to leave them alone...

China has over 24 million single men who will never find a wife, and 300 million people it needs to move out because of pollution and overpopulation... better to have them dying in a war then rioting on the streets...

add that too the fact you are thinking guns and bullets when a country like the USA has no money to fight its wars... Japan has no money to fight a war... although it is sitting on 800 billion of american debt but would kill the US economy if they had to dump them... just like the Chinese would

a crash of the US economy would destroy the western bank, who are sitting on 1.5 Quadrillion in derivatives bets that they can only cover 2% of....

but in the end... the USA has proven they are afraid to take on a country like North Korea who has 5 nukes at the most...

and even worse they they wont take on Iran who dosent even have nukes at this point in time...

but most damning? is the USA fcuked over Mubarak in Egypt....after 30 years of backing him...

basically a regime that was one of the few friends of Israel...

so you can talk big all you want... over over disputes in the South China sea

where China has a historical claim over the Scarborough Shoal with the Philippines dating back to 1279

or their dispute with Japan...

"The Chinese claim the discovery and control of the islands from the 14th century. Japan controlled the islands from 1895 until its surrender at the end of World War II.

The United States administered them as part of the United States Civil Administration of the Ryukyu Islands from 1945 until 1972, when the islands reverted to Japanese control under the Okinawa Reversion Treaty between the United States and Japan"

im always for if you have the power then you take it all the power too you....

just like the USA is supporting the French in Mali as we speak...

if the USA, or a western Country wants to step into a dispute between China all the power too them....

China takes tentative steps toward greater role in world diplomacy with Syria peace plan
Fri, Nov 9, 2012

BEIJING, China - China's four-point plan for Syria is a rare foray into international mediation for the rising power, a sign that Beijing's increasingly global economic interests can trump its traditional hands-off diplomacy.
Outgoing President Hu Jintao, in his agenda-setting report this week at a Communist Party gathering to choose the coming decade's leadership, signalled China's intent to step out more on the world stage.

Hu said China would "get more actively involved in international affairs, play its due role of a major responsible country," while underlining Beijing's deep sensitivity to matters of sovereignty and its rejection of "any foreign attempt to subvert the legitimate government of any other countries."

China's foreign minister introduced the plan for a political solution to the Syria conflict to U.N.-Arab League special envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, during his visit to Beijing last week.

It calls for a phased, region-by-region cease-fire; the appointment of representatives to negotiate a political resolution while maintaining "the continuity and effectiveness of Syria's governmental institutions;" international support for Brahimi's efforts; and steps by the international community to ease the country's humanitarian crisis.

The U.N. has welcomed the effort, but there hasn't been much international discussion of it. Observers have found it vague, and likely aimed at bolstering China's reputation following criticism of its moves to join Russia in blocking U.N. resolutions aimed at ending Syria's bloodshed, including calls for Syrian leader Bashar Assad to step down.

China's proposal leaves open the possibility of Assad staying on in a power-sharing agreement, and does not significantly add to past peace plans that have failed.

"But then this statement isn't so much about setting forward a concrete proposal for action as about the messaging that underpins it," said Sarah Raine, a consulting fellow for Chinese foreign and security policy at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. "It has become increasingly clear that Beijing is worried about the reputational damage its relative intransigence on Syria has been doing to other important relationships, in particular in the Middle East."

The 20-month crisis in Syria pitting Assad's government forces against a fractured opposition has so far defied the trend of other Arab Spring uprisings that have seen authoritarian leaders ousted, exiled or killed. Assad is determined to stay in power and has vowed never to leave Syria, leaving world leaders to look for a solution.

If Assad were to step down, "China will surely accept that," said Li Weijian, a Middle East studies scholar at the Shanghai Institute for Foreign Studies. However, "China believes it's not up to the international community to judge the legitimacy of the government or the leader of a country."

China's move may be mostly about improving its standing in the Middle East, where it is a major buyer of petroleum — not from Syria, but from countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran.

In recent decades, China has kept a low-profile in global affairs, abiding by a policy of non-interference in the affairs of other countries. Having used the military against its own citizens in 1989 and facing accusations of ethnic oppression in Tibet and Xinjiang, China is wary of approving any interventions that might set precedents for intervention in its own affairs.

American/west greed and avarice, the bullying, plundering ,rapping , mass killings, stealing ...and the the genocidal wars and many perpetual overseas wars.. on the World are much worst than Other nations and China combined.
Chinese Calender was invented for about 5015 years ago. China was born for just only 2200 years old. Please, look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China . The establishment is 220 BC. It means China has stolen the calender (+other civilizations) from other the nations/peoples that it had destroyed. Hundreds of nations/peoples were destroyed around that time. Before that time, the civilization could not be called Chinese.

In the same way, China nowadays has occupied/destroyed Tibet and stolen/claimed Tibet's civilization as its own. The same at East and South Chinese Sea.

Chinese people have in fact no civilization at all.

It can be said that China was for 2200 years ago established, when a criminal gang led by the evil bandit Qin Shi Huang had succeeded to steal the power. China is only a criminal gang. That is why Chinese/the gang members are nowadays so evil, criminal and live to steal.

Buddhism and Chinese Kungfu are stolen from India.

^ typical response, whose only recourse is to go back to numbers killed.. which both sides can give their over inflated or under inflated numbers

of course you are going to win the numbers game... China did not have the ground, air or naval superiority... the US/UN did

all China had was a surplus of soldiers who were given 5 days of rice... and in some regiments 1 rifle between 4 or 5 soldiers

plus lets look at Vietnam... how many enemy soldiers did the Americans kill there? 1 million or more?

does it matter... no one considers the Americans won that war even though they won the numbers game...

because thats what you do... when faced against superior military force you sacrifice land and lives for time

btw you said it yourself....

think about it.... if things were going so well for the USA and the UN....

why were they talking about using nukes then??????

(btw the Chinese didnt believe the USA, was going to use them... and the US was afraid it would bring in Russsia to the war)

China intervenes (October – December 1950)

Chinese forces cross the Yalu River.

On 27 June 1950, two days after the KPA invaded and three months before the Chinese entered the war, President Truman dispatched the United States Seventh Fleet to the Taiwan Strait, to prevent hostilities between the Nationalist Republic of China (Taiwan) and the People's Republic of China (PRC).[133][134] On 4 August 1950, with the PRC invasion of Taiwan aborted, Mao Zedong reported to the Politburo that he would intervene in Korea when the People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Taiwan invasion force was reorganized into the PLA North East Frontier Force. China justified its entry into the war as a response to "American aggression in the guise of the UN".[135]

On 20 August 1950, Premier Zhou Enlai informed the United Nations that "Korea is China's neighbor... The Chinese people cannot but be concerned about a solution of the Korean question". Thus, through neutral-country diplomats, China warned that in safeguarding Chinese national security, they would intervene against the UN Command in Korea.[132] President Truman interpreted the communication as "a bald attempt to blackmail the UN", and dismissed it.[136]

.
.
On 15 October 1950, President Truman and General MacArthur met at Wake Island in the mid-Pacific Ocean. This meeting was much publicized because of the General's discourteous refusal to meet the President on the continental US.[146] To President Truman, MacArthur speculated there was little risk of Chinese intervention in Korea,[147] and that the PRC's opportunity for aiding the KPA had lapsed. He believed the PRC had some 300,000 soldiers in Manchuria, and some 100,000–125,000 soldiers at the Yalu River. He further concluded that, although half of those forces might cross south, "if the Chinese tried to get down to Pyongyang, there would be the greatest slaughter" without air force protection.[121][148]

After secretly crossing the Yalu River on 19 October, the PVA 13th Army Group launched the First Phase Offensive on 25 October, attacking the advancing U.N. forces near the Sino-Korean border. This military decision made by China solely changed the attitude of the Soviet Union. After 12 days of Chinese troops entering the war, Stalin allowed the Soviet Air Force to provide air cover, and supported more aid to China.[149] After decimating the ROK II Corps at the Battle of Onjong, the first confrontation between Chinese and U.S. military occurred on 1 November 1950; deep in North Korea, thousands of soldiers from the PVA 39th Army encircled and attacked the US 8th Cavalry Regiment with three-prong assaults—from the north, northwest, and west—and overran the defensive position flanks in the Battle of Unsan.[150] The surprise assault resulted in the U.N. forces retreating back to the Ch'ongch'on River, while the Chinese unexpectedly disappeared into mountain hideouts following victory. It is unclear why the Chinese did not press the attack and follow-up their victory.

The UN Command, however, were unconvinced that the Chinese had openly intervened due to the sudden Chinese withdrawal. On 24 November, the Home-by-Christmas Offensive was launched with the U.S. Eighth Army advancing in northwest Korea, while the US X Corps were attacking along the Korean east coast.

But the Chinese were waiting in ambush with their Second Phase Offensive.

On 25 November at the Korean western front, the PVA 13th Army Group attacked and overran the ROK II Corps at the Battle of the Ch'ongch'on River, and then decimated the US 2nd Infantry Division on the UN forces' right flank.[151] The UN Command retreated; the U.S. Eighth Army's retreat (the longest in US Army history)[152] was made possible because of the Turkish Brigade's successful, but very costly, rear-guard delaying action near Kunuri that slowed the PVA attack for two days (27–9 November). On 27 November at the Korean eastern front, a US 7th Infantry Division Regimental Combat Team (3,000 soldiers) and the U.S. 1st Marine Division (12,000–15,000 marines) were unprepared for the PVA 9th Army Group's three-pronged encirclement tactics at the Battle of Chos

On 27 November at the Korean eastern front, a US 7th Infantry Division Regimental Combat Team (3,000 soldiers) and the U.S. 1st Marine Division (12,000–15,000 marines) were unprepared for the PVA 9th Army Group's three-pronged encirclement tactics at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, but they managed to escape under Air Force and X Corps support fire—albeit with some 15,000 collective casualties.[153]
By 30 November, the PVA 13th Army Group managed to expel the U.S. Eighth Army from northwest Korea. Retreating from the north faster than they had counter-invaded, the Eighth Army crossed the 38th parallel border in mid December.[154] The U.N. morale hit rock bottom when commanding General Walton Walker of the U.S. Eighth Army was killed on 23 December 1950 in an automobile accident.[155] In the northeast Korea by 11 December, the U.S. X Corps managed to cripple[156] the PVA 9th Army Group while establishing a defensive perimeter at the port city of Hungnam. The X Corps were forced to evacuate by 24 December in order to reinforce the badly depleted U.S. Eighth Army to the south.[157][158]

Map of the U.N. retreat in the wake of Chinese intervention
During the Hungnam evacuation, about 193 shiploads of U.N. Command forces and materiel (approximately 105,000 soldiers, 98,000 civilians, 17,500 vehicles, and 350,000 tons of supplies) were evacuated to Pusan.[159] The SS Meredith Victory was noted for evacuating 14,000 refugees, the largest rescue operation by a single ship, even though it was designed to hold 12 passengers. Before escaping, the U.N. Command forces razed most of Hungnam city, especially the port facilities;[121][160] and on 16 December 1950, President Truman declared a national emergency with Presidential Proclamation No. 2914, 3 C.F.R. 99 (1953),[161] which remained in force until 14 September 1978.[b]

Third Phase Offensive

Fighting around the 38th parallel (January – June 1951)

With Lieutenant-General Matthew Ridgway assuming the command of the U.S. Eighth Army on 26 December, the PVA and the KPA launched their Third Phase Offensive (also known as the "Chinese New Year's Offensive") on New Year's Eve of 1950.

Utilizing night attacks in which U.N. Command fighting positions were encircled and then assaulted by numerically superior troops who had the element of surprise, the attacks were accompanied by loud trumpets and gongs, which fulfilled the double purpose of facilitating tactical communication and mentally disorienting the enemy.

UN forces initially had no familiarity with this tactic, and as a result some soldiers panicked, abandoning their weapons and retreating to the south.[162] The Chinese New Year's Offensive overwhelmed UN forces, allowing the PVA and KPA to conquer Seoul for the second time on 4 January 1951.

B-26 Invaders bomb logistics depots in Wonsan, North Korea, 1951
These setbacks prompted General MacArthur to consider using nuclear weapons against the Chinese or North Korean interiors, with the intention that radioactive fallout zones would interrupt the Chinese supply chains.[163]

However, upon the arrival of the charismatic General Ridgway, the esprit de corps of the bloodied Eighth Army immediately began to revive.[164]

U.N. forces retreated to Suwon in the west, Wonju in the center, and the territory north of Samcheok in the east, where the battlefront stabilized and held.[162]

The PVA had outrun its logistics capability and thus were unable to press on beyond Seoul as [165] food, ammunition, and materiel were carried nightly, on foot and bicycle, from the border at the Yalu River to the three battle lines.

In late January, upon finding that the PVA had abandoned their battle lines, General Ridgway ordered a reconnaissance-in-force, which became Operation Roundup (5 February 1951)[166]. A full-scale X Corps advance proceeded which fully exploited the UN Command's air superiority,[167] concluding with the UN reaching the Han River and recapturing Wonju.[166]

For instance Vtech phones, TVs, & DVDs. Lenovo computers and phones, Haier washing machine and dryers, and refrigerators.
These are famous brands and as popular as LG and Samsung all over the world. The market tells whether the products are good, but not you racist.

China makes good fighters jets, and they are good. It creates its own brand of electric cars, and the fastest running speed training with home developed technology newer and faster than Japan and German's.

Even if many white countries have invented many things, and USA is the best inventor, what does it have to do with your country Australia and your people?

Aren't USA a different country? How can you treat their invention as your own? Are you saying that Australia is a state of USA?

You really have no shame? When you accuse other people, first look at your own house. You are a lot worse than China and other Chinese states in technology development and production.

Fourth Phase Offensive

In mid-February, the PVA counterattacked with the Fourth Phase Offensive and achieved initial victory at Hoengseong. But the offensive was soon blunted by the IX Corps positions at Chipyong-ni in the center.[166] Units of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division and the French Battalion fought a short but desperate battle that broke the attack's momentum.[166] The battle is sometimes known as the Gettysburg of the Korean War.

.
.
Fifth Phase Offensive

The Chinese counterattacked in April 1951, with the Fifth Phase Offensive (also known as the "Chinese Spring Offensive") with three field armies (approximately 700,000 men).[179] The offensive's first thrust fell upon I Corps, which fiercely resisted in the Battle of the Imjin River (22–25 April 1951) and the Battle of Kapyong (22–25 April 1951), blunting the impetus of the offensive, which was halted at the "No-name Line" north of Seoul.[180] On 15 May 1951, the Chinese commenced the second impulse of the Spring Offensive and attacked the ROK Army and the US X Corps in the east at the Soyang River. After initial success, they were halted by 20 May.[181] At month's end, the US Eighth Army counterattacked and regained "Line Kansas," just north of the 38th parallel.[182] The UN's "Line Kansas" halt and subsequent offensive action stand-down began the stalemate that lasted until the armistice of 1953.
