China’s Military Spending Surges To $175 Billion

The 8.1% increase comes as China’s dictator Xi Jinping is set to rule for life, and the Communist state becomes more aggressive in relation to their neighbours.

China continues to demonstrate that they have every intention of displacing the United States as the dominant world power.

Their military budget is set to increase 8.1% this year, which would bring it to $175 Billion USD.

China has the world’s second most heavily-funded military, and spending last year had already grown by 7%, the latest in a long line of military spending hikes.

In a statement, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said “China will advance all aspects of military training and war preparedness, and firmly and resolvedly safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests. Faced with profound changes in the national security environment” the absolute leadership of the military by the ruling Communist Party must be observed, and the unity between the government and the military and the people and the military must always be “strong as stone.”

China’s rapid military spending increases will be of concern to their neighbours, who have watched China make increasingly aggressive territorial claims and militarize islands in the South China Sea.

The move should also be concerning to all of us who value freedom and democracy, as a more militarily powerful China – especially under the leadership of dictator Xi Jinping – is not a good thing.

That’s why Canada needs to get our garbage procurement system in order and increase military spending to ensure we have a strong national defence. After all, despite our small population, we have an economy similar in size to Russia – a nation with a strong military – and there’s no reason we can’t have a military capable of deterring any aggression or encroachment on our national homeland.

It is scary and of course we are not at all ready to protect are almost non existent unprotected borders. I hope our Liberal government is ready to fork over Billions of borrowed money to the USA to protect us (really) as it will take a strong country with know how and strong leadership and the right equipment that knows how to use it as our military has never really been supplied for this kind of thing. I read that the Liberals have bomb shelters being readied for the government peoples use.

“the absolute leadership of the military by the ruling Communist Party must be observed, and the unity between the government and the military and the people and the military must always be “strong as stone.” ” This is the very same Communist Party that now owns and controls what used to be owned by the “failed” Anbang Insurance. Billions in Real Estate and corporations across Canada and the world including the Seniors Corporation in BC. Don’t expect for one second that the Communist Chinese Government will sell one inch of those holdings. The Communist Chinese, by the way, are major… Read more »
