China prepares for war
This should give Gen X, Gen Y & Millennials something to do ...
China President Xi Jinping ordered the military to think about “worst-case scenarios” as relations between China and the US, as well as Australia, continue to deteriorate.
“It is necessary to step up preparations for armed combat, to flexibly carry out actual combat military training, and to improve our military’s ability to perform military missions.”
China President Xi Jinping says his armed forces need to step up preparation and training for war as he defended an increase in military spending, while a Chinese defence spokesperson warned the nation was “facing some real threats” overseas.
In 2020, China had the largest active duty military force in the world, with about 2.18 million active military personnel.
The USA has 1.4 million.
The Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Australian Army, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and several other "tri-service" units has just over 85,000 full-time personnel and active reservists.
ASSUMING China has no immediate plans to invade the US or EU i would say they have been preparing seriously , since the Trade tariffs
a big difference in repelling an invasion to preparing an international assault especially since the US , EU and Japan have left such a bad taste in the past
