China to Become the No. One Military Power?

Liu Mingfu, a senior colonel in the People’s Liberation Army and author of a new book titled "China’s Dream” reiterated in an recent interview that China must seek to rise to become the world’s number one military power. “We need the military to rise as well as the economy to rise.” “China’s military rise is an inevitable requirement of China’s national interest and an important guarantee when dealing with U.S. containment. China’s military rise is conducive to world peace, but will also help to change the serious imbalance in the world’s military structure.” According to a March 1 survey on the Global Times’ website, over 80% hold that China should seek to become the world’s number one super power.
