The result of China's 15-year effort has been "the largest military buildup the world has witnessed since the end of the Cold War," says Richard Fisher, a China specialist for the International Assessment and Strategy Center (IASC), a Virginia-based think tank.

Hi Don, I've enjoyed reading your posts in the past when I was lurking. you'll have to forgive me until I can properly respond to point by point quotes - Since China didn't disarm anyone in '91, everyone still has their arms. (please elaborate on that point. I am very curious what you mean) [Edited by Don W]
