US "Genuinely Concerned" About China's Military Buildup

Wednesday night Adm. Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gave a speech to the Asia Society in which he said, "I have moved from being curious to being genuinely concerned" about China's military buildup.For years there has been an argument among China hands about what Beijing was up to. China's stated goal is territorial defense but it seemed to be investing in equipment such as long range missiles and even an aircraft carrier which traditionally are used to project power overseas.

There is reason to worry. Especially for the people of Taiwan. As Communist China widens the gap in military power between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, it becomes more and more likely that the Communists will invade Taiwan. Taiwan desperatly needs more advanced jet fighters and submarines to deter a Communist invasion. Whether from the US, France or Russia? Taiwan needs to make a massive arms deal and very quickly. The sands are poring down the hour glass at a rapid rate.

Taiwan was, is and will remain integral part of great china, world should not wory about that.

Taiwan is not an integral part of china, its Republic of China(Taiwan)中華民國 not communist barbarian china(PRC)

I wish same freedom and democracy for Tibet, may holi dalai lama will rule the kingdom.

Long live Tibet and ROC.

No matter what one says China is raising as a military Power and in newer future it will have sufficient power to disrupt US plans in the region

@Asian Defence
Ya you are right by your stand, China is rising but the only problem is about Transparency...i.e at what pace thet are growing? do they posess potential weapons or just fancy toys, i explain my point with an example, US worries about Chinese capabilties of having Anti- Aircraft Carrier missile, but at the same time they are not sure whether china is having them or not because it`s difficult to engage moving target in vast sea wih a missile, Because in the ocean hittting an Aircraft carrier is just like "finding a needle in a haystack"
