USA reports on increased Chinese military spending, while China denounces the report



The USA released a report about China’s military spending and possible ambitions:

June 6, 2014

China has rejected a report by the U.S. Defense Department that suggested Beijing significantly underestimated the amount it spent on defense last year.

The annual Pentagon report to Congress Thursday said Chinese military spending was about $145 billion in 2013. That figure is about 20 percent higher than the $119.5 billion China said it spent.

The Defense Department document also noted Beijing is expanding its ability to project power overseas. It cited advances in China’s navy and air force, as well as in missile technology, drone technology and cyber warfare.

China’s Defense Ministry on Friday said it “resolutely opposes” the report, saying it “makes pointless accusations, exaggerates the ‘Chinese military threat’ and is a completely wrong course of action.”

U.S. officials have long suspected China is not telling the truth about its military spending, both because of a lack of transparency and other factors such as corruption.

Washington and its allies accuse China of using its rising military strength to bully neighbors in the East and South China Seas with which Beijing has territorial disputes.

Many consider that China is going to be the major threat to the USA, both economically and militarily.  But although China is affecting the USA in both of those ways, China has its own problems and will not really become the leader of the world in the 21st century:  that will be a European-based power (watch Is China THE Threat to the United States of America? and Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

Because of China’s growth and certain political stances, the USA is more and more convinced it needs to prepare militarily for issues that could involve China.  This is contributing to the USA not seeing the real threat which is developing against it in Europe (see Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

Now, it is true that the Bible does tell of the rise of a confederation of ‘kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12), which would include China.  But the prophecies relate to this happen AFTER the USA is eliminated.  Daniel 11:39 shows the elimination of the USA, while Daniel 11:44 tells of the later threat “from the east and the north” that will affect the European power.

The powers from the north and east include China and Russia.  Japan, Korea, India, and others are also expected to support a Russian-led power (Jeremiah 50:41-43).

Speaking of Russia, like China, there are anti-American sentiments coming from it:

June 6, 2014

MOSCOW — Anti-American sentiment here is growing as Russia responds to Western sanctions over Ukraine, and that is worrying expats and foreigners in this country…

An opinion survey published Thursday by the Levada Center, an independent pollster, shows 71% of Russians view the United States “badly” or “very badly” — the highest in more than 20 years, with more positive attitudes registered during the Soviet era.

While that hasn’t translated into outright aggression, it is sparking some additional curiosity toward foreigners in the street.

“My husband … recently had the experience of running into a man in a store who didn’t like that our son was communicating in English,” said Natalia Antonova, a Ukrainian-American journalist and playwright who lives in Moscow.

The man, Antonova said, told them their son “shouldn’t be” bilingual. ” ‘Just teach him Russian. It’s for the best.’ The man wasn’t aggressive or anything, he just explained that he’s a patriot and it’s important to encourage patriotic feelings.”

Despite the thaw in relations between China and the USA since its President Nixon first visited there, and the ‘reset’ that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attempted with Russia, the reality is that the Chinese and Russian governments do not trust the USA and do not have the same world view.

We are in the process of seeing two major Gentile military alliances building up.  One, a Eurasian power, that will ultimately include more than Russia and China (cf. Jeremiah 50:41-43).  The other, a European power (Revelation 13:1-4) that is destined to takeover the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39).

Because of the fact that USA political and and military leaders do not rely on Bible prophecy, they will take steps to prepare for war with China and/or Russia, while ignoring the threat that is arising in Europe.  Instead of seeing the threat in Europe, partially because of its own debt and partially because of China, the USA is encouraging Europe to increase its military spending (see Obama tries to provide assurances to Europe while pushing for increased European military spending).

While the USA is warning against Chinese military spending, it is European military technology which will prove to be the real military threat to the USA.
