World's largest : China's 2.3 million person army
China's 2.3 million-strong army is the world's biggest as far as numbers go. It is followed by the United States with 1.38 million.
troops, India with 1.3 million and Russia's 1.24 million. Technological capability is another matter.
The primary mission of the PLA remains stopping the self-ruled island of Taiwan from formally declaring independence,
as well as preventing US forces from intervening in any ensuing war. Despite a recent thaw in relations with its longtime rival Taiwan, Beijing says threats from separatist forces in Tibet and the Muslim-populated Xinjiang region that endanger China's security and unity have risen.

Last month, two Chinese destroyers and a supply vessel joined the global armada patrolling the waters off Somalia's coast where Chinese ships have suffered seven attacks by pirates. In a rare display of openness, the Chinese military has also said it is "seriously considering" adding an aircraft carrier to its fleet to ensure the country's maritime security and its commercial interests.
The October 1 [ 2009 ] parade - the first such display in 10 years - will include the navy which dispatched warships to join the global anti-piracy campaign in the Gulf of Aden and the Second Artillery Force, which controls China's nuclear missiles.

China aims missiles at U.S. aircraft carriers
The missiles are described in the report as part of China's "anti-access/area denial capabilities" that include "anti-ship ballistic missiles designed to strike ships at sea, including aircraft carriers."
Other new weapons that are part of the precision-guided missile arsenal are advanced cruise missiles, medium-range ballistic missiles, the direct ascent anti-satellite missiles, like the one tested in January 2007.

Chinese missile obliterates orbiting satellite

-- China last week successfully used a missile to destroy an orbiting satellite, U.S. government officials told CNN on Thursday, in a test that could undermine relations with the West and pose a threat to satellites important to the U.S. military.
http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/space/01/18/china.missile/index.html

China now has approximately 36 intercontinental missiles that can hit the United States – 24 older CSS-4 missiles and up to 12 new Dong Feng 31 missiles," said Col. Larry Wortzel, vice president of the Heritage Foundation.
"The Dong Feng 31 missiles can reach Alaska and the western U.S. China has also tested the Dong Feng 31 with multiple warheads," stated Col. Wortzel during a recent Washington conference on missile defense.
The new Dong Feng 31 (DF-31) missiles are attached to the 80304 Unit of the Second Artillery Corps. The 80304 Unit is headquartered in Luoyang, Henan province. Its older CSS-4 missiles can strike targets throughout the United States and Europe.
A single DF-31 missile armed with the huge H-bomb could destroy any major U.S. city including
Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle.


"as close as lips to teeth"
North Korea has also restarted development of its long-range Tae Po Dong missile that can reach Alaska and the western United States.

China increases short-range missiles ( fired from ships off U.S. coast ??? )
China has increased the number of short-range ballistic missiles on its coast opposite Taiwan, the US has said. In an annual report to Congress, the Pentagon claimed there were now up to 730 such missiles in place. Last year's report found only 500.

China's Julang 2 ( "Great Wave" )  submarine-launched missiles
U.S. Navy sources expressed concern that a JL-2-armed submarine could sail to within a few hundred miles of the U.S. West Coast. Such a move would place West Coast cities at "point-blank" range, enabling the Chinese submarine to shower Los Angeles or San Francisco with nuclear warheads. The move would also place most – if not all – U.S. cities within range of the H-bomb-equipped missile.

"It is likely that the goal for the JL-2 is to be able to reach the western U.S. from the Yellow Sea, an area that the PLA can defend with near-current ship and aircraft resources. But of course, if the Type 094 SSBN is able to reach launch points outside this area, the JL-2's reach will increase," stated Fisher

China's DF-5A
MIRV = Multiple, Independently targetable Reentry Vehicles (MIRVs).
The current force of DF-5A missiles is deployed with single warhead, but in November 1983 China inaugurated a DF-5 modification program to arm these ICBMs with MIRVed warheads. Technical difficulties, however, have stalled the program. The DF-5A, able to strike targets in the continental United States (CONUS), was the designated recipient of the MIRVs, although there is no evidence that they have been deployed. Some sources claim that at least four DF-5As have already been MIRVed, though it is generally asserted that while MIRVing may occur within the next few years no DF-5s have yet been fitted with MIRVed warheads.
Thus the DF-5A could direct a warhead bus over a fairly large arc covering an array of aim points. But the exact status of this program cannot be confirmed based on open sources.

Venezuela's Chavez wants nuclear power
; also Braziland Argentina
So far, the Bush administration has cautiously reacted to Chávez's ambitions. The Venezuelan president has sought to position himself as the nemesis of U.S. imperialism and a defender of Cuba and Fidel Castro, and for the United States to criticize him publicly would only add to his popularity in Latin America
He has found support for the idea. When Chávez spoke at a conference in Spain in October of acquiring as many as a dozen reactors, Brazil reacted with enthusiasm. "Any country that wants to share with Brazil its peaceful-use programs will be welcomed," Marco Aurelio García, national security adviser to President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, said at the conference
Though Brazil's nuclear program is more advanced than Argentina's, experts say that Argentina offers the best fit for Venezuela

Spain is selling 10 C-295 transport planes and two CN-235 patrol planes, as well as four ocean patrol boats and four coast patrol vessels. It is Spain's largest-ever defense deal.

The first 30,000 rifles are set to arrive next month. [ December 2005 ]
Relations between Spain and the United States also have chilled under Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who withdrew peacekeeping troops from Iraq immediately after taking office in April 2004.

But the broader and equally controversial background to the Franco-German initiative is the EU's drive to forge a strategic relationship with China, independently from Europe's links to the United States.

defense, security and trade -- SABIC
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - "Oil-rich Saudi Arabia and energy-starved China signed defense, security and trade agreements Saturday on the first day of Chinese President Hu Jintaos visit, a trip both sides expect will enhance burgeoning relations.
Hu's trip comes as Saudi Arabia opens up to Asia's growing economic powers in a bid to find stable markets for its oil, step up its international diplomacy and show the West, particularly the United States, that if relations worsen, the kingdom [ Ed: Saudi Arabia ] has other alternatives, analysts say"

Several said the trip would further strengthen relations between Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter, and China, the world's No. 2 oil consumer.

China and Saudi Arabian Oil
Last month's visit to Beijing by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia not only underlined China's importance as a market for Saudi crude oil and natural gas
Saudi oil sales to the United States peaked in 2002 and have shifted growth to China,
the world's second-largest oil market.  Two-way trade between the desert kingdom [ SA ] and the Middle Kingdom
[ China ] jumped almost 60 percent to $14 billion last year. The Saudi government has invested in oil refineries in China and allowed Chinese companies to prospect for new oil in Saudi Arabia
China is negotiating a free-trade agreement with the Gulf Cooperation Council and has begun political consultations with several key states in the Middle East. In December, China and Kuwait signed a deal to build a $5 billion refinery complex in Guangdong Province.  
Saudi Arabia, for example, has acquired long-range ballistic missiles from China

Tehran [ Iran} can rely on powerful friends in Asia. China, which could veto sanctions against Iran at the United Nations Security Council, obtains more than 30 percent of its oil and gas supplies from Iran. India relies on Iran for almost three-quarters of its oil. President George W. Bush may have dubbed Iran part of the axis of evil, but from Asia, Iran is seen as a useful Shiite counter-balance to radical Sunni forces in Pakistan and Afghanistan
India
is pushing to build a 2,600-kilometer pipeline to Iran through Pakistan that Washington opposes because it wants to isolate Iran. Both India and Pakistan see the pipeline as a critical ingredient in the growing rapprochement between the two countries
Singapore
, for example, which has a small Muslim community, is hoping to become a center for Islamic banking in the region, and began a modest Asia-Middle East dialogue last year.

the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries -- United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

China is currently in talks with several other possible FTA partners, including New Zealand, Australia, Chile and
South
Africa.
However, an FTA between China and the Gulf Cooperation Council, which holds 45 percent of the world's oil reserves and accounts for 20 percent of oil production, would help shore up China's energy supplies

ASIAN ALLIANCE
SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee on Tuesday called for a comprehensive security framework in Asia, which hosts the world's largest standing armies and four nations with nuclear weapons.
Vajpayee said Asia has "seven of the 10 most populous countries in the world, the largest standing armies, four declared nuclear weapons states and several missile producing and exporting states."
China, India, Pakistan and Russia all have nuclear weapons in their arsenals.

Vajpayee, however, said that a security framework was gradually emerging in Asia, referring to the Association of Southeast Asian (Asean) Regional Forum, or ARF.
ARF groups the 10 Asean states -- Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam -- and their security allies Australia, Canada, China, the European Union, India, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Russia and the United States.
