"I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest." - - Winston Churchill
(AP) WASHINGTON (AP) — A top Chinese general says his country has no intention of trying to match U.S. military power.
Speaking Wednesday at the National Defense University, Gen. Chen Bingde said the U.S. is far more advanced militarily. He cited a "gaping gap" in American and Chinese capabilities. He said it is at least a 20-year gap.
Chen is chief of the general staff of the People's Liberation Army. He is on a weeklong visit to the United States.
Chen said his visit has made even clearer to him that China's navy, for example, is relatively underdeveloped and must keep building more ships.
