Doesn't China have like 3-4 million in it's military?

I think the US has the best because we are highly trained, and have superior technology. Really no one on earth can touch our Navy or Air power.

I believe we have the best military on earth, but China is the sleeping Giant that no one wants to wake IMHO.

USA is still #1 by far, though the most important reasons why are still classified.

Best Army: Israel and U.S. a close second

Best Navy: U.S.

Best AF: U.S.

Military Most Spread Out: U.S.

Based on this info, China is much more stronger than the US...Not sure why one considers China a "sleeping" giant, they are a giant. Of the technology, remember just over a year ago when the US Navy was doing an exercise near Taiwan and a Chinese sub surface without being detected? The uninvited guest: Chinese sub pops up in middle of U.S. Navy exercise, leaving military chiefs red-faced | Mail Online

If China wants to invade a neighboring country, there's very little we could do to stop them, we'd just slow them down a little...Due to Geneva/UN/NATO, we can't just nuke 'em...The cost to stop the advance of 1,000,000 Chinese soldiers would bring our country back into the WWII ration days...Also remember, China has slave labor, all of their equipment costs 90% less of what we pay...
