Of course Baidu is going to say China and Russia have the strongest military its a Chinese search engine. China is a communist country and controls all media as a propaganda took to make them and their allies look good.
And the US is a capitalist country that does the same thing.
What does communism or capitalism have to do with anything? They are just words, just like their own political zealots call us "capitalist pigs" in China or Russia. But not everyone falls for it. Anyway if China is communist then that obviously hasn't stopped them from catching up to our self-destructing capitalist economy.

Check this out! The largest search engine in the US is definitely a government tool. Not only does it track the user's electronic footprint as we all know, it also hides the information that it doesn't want you to know.
If you data-mine "World's Strongest Military" on Google you get search results confirming that the United States military is the strongest.
On the same token, if you data-mine "World's Strongest Military" on Baidu, China's largest search engine, it ranks the People's Liberation Army as the world leader followed by the Russian military. It puts the USA at an unfortunate third place.
I did some other searches and noted that currency and other world issues are being skewed by Google too. Is Google involved in bone fide propaganda or were these just a couple isolated incidents?
Am I alone in this experience, or have you experienced this too?
Thank you for your input.
