    This week’s parade also included the debut of the DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). It is a ground-mobile ICBM with a maximum range of 9,300 miles, capable of carrying multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles. That range provides Beijing the means to target the mainland United States. China has also been developing maneuverable warheads, decoys, chaff, and jamming techniques that could make the DF-41 more difficult to intercept.

    "Fight", articles like this present modern war as if it were a fight between 12 yr. olds in the school yard. This is the time of nuclear weapons, myriad types of delivery vehicles. If the big kids start fighting there will be no such thing as a beautiful little war.

    Corporate America built China into the behemoth it is today. The insatiable thirst for more and more profit sent all of our jobs, technology, and intellectual property to a communist country of over a billion people. Of course they are going to use the incredible wealth of this situation to build their military and exert their new-found influence on the geopolitical stage. Trump is trying to reign them in using tariffs but facing stiff resistance from Wall Street.

    Building and functionality are two different things. China knows that, so does the US and rest of the world.

    Ironically, it's Americans who fund China's military through DECADES of trade imbalances.

    What would happen if we had no military bases in the world? Most countries do not. Most countries host our military through a mutual agreement because we either pay them or agree to do business with them through trade. Canada is our biggest trading partner and there are no bases in Canada. I believe the military creates conflict to enrich themselves and their Republican Lawmakers. Most of the billionaires were made through military purchases either in th the run up of the value of their stocks or through the sale of goods. if we had a much smaller military, we could use the extra money saved to pay down the debt.

    The budget funds four branches of the U.S. military: the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force. For Fiscal Year 2019 (FY2019), the Department of Defense' budget authority is approximately $693,058,000,000. Approximately $684,985,000,000 is discretionary, approximately $8,081,000,000 is mandatory.

    I studied abroad in China. They’re not ready to fight the USA. Not even close.
