In WW2 the French army was technologically more superior than the Nazi German army and they had more troops, and Nazi Germany still beat them.
The Finnish army also managed to hold back the Soviet Union from completly invading Finland, and the finns were definately outnumbered and technologically inferior.
So technology doesn't always matter, unless you're like 100-200 years behind, it's how you use what you've got and also pure will power.
I'm not saying China has got the edge on those either, but they could. You shouldn't be so arrogant and underestimate theirs or others capabilities.

Go ahead and laugh but I personally believe that both Capitolism and Communism are
obsolete and will be on the way out in the 21st century.
Fear the future ...
I have read the report to congress concerning China, it makes interesting reading. The world as a whole needs the emergence of a second or even third superpower, its all about balance.
