Well if you use that logic Russia and China haven't crushed any super powers either. Russia didn't win WWII they held there ground and then beat back a beast that was fighting on multiple fronts. Make no mistake if Germany made better tactical decisions during that war they might have beaten Russia, but guess who was providing logistics for Russia on the Eastern front. USA. Who's gear were they using to run into Germany with, ours.

When It comes to Military might there is no threat to America!

If it wasn't for the U.S., the Chinese would still be slaves for the Japanese.
Australia's Defence force is also defensive, hence the name, and they are very capable, in fact among the best trained in the world. They can project military might if needs be. We have sent 1,500 troops + to Afghanistan alone. So something tells me China can do the same if not more, if they wanted to.

Its a DEFENSIVE army, with near ZERO posibilities to project military power more than 200 km away from their borders.
Sure, they have MILLIONS of troops...and its impossible to win a war where China is on defense.
What china CANNOT DO (at least for many years from now on) is to DEFEND MILITARILY anything else EXCEPT North Koreea.
China can send NOW 1,000-2,000 troops in, lets say Iran, or Syria...but that is pretty much the BEST they can do.US can send 50,000 troops along military hardware ANYWHERE in the world, in shortest time possible.
US have 400+ bases all around the world (logistics) AND alied countries that will ACCEPT any amount of US troops and military hardaware.
What else China don't have compared to US, UK or France ? They don't have WAR EXPERIENCED soldiers.
Or WAR EXPERIENCED air force and or navy.
A hardened US or UK or Israeli army battallion will kick the shi.t out of a chinese army DIVISION.
Numbers means NOTHING in 21st century.
