US Concerned With Chinese Military Buildup
The United States has concerns about a military expansion in China that may be excessive, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Friday.
China's reported military budget rose more than 14 percent this year to $35.3 billion, but outside estimates of China’s true spending are up to three times that level.
“There are concerns about China’s military buildup,” Rice told a television interviewer. “It’s sometimes seemed outsized for China’s regional role.”
So should we add China to the list of countries that are doing something militarily that we don't approve of, but apparently can do little to stop?
