China’s Military: Mighty Dragon or Paper Tiger?

"China is not the United States’ enemy, but neither is it our friend. The two world powers have interests that sometimes are in accord but conflict in key areas that are not negotiable for either country. War with China is not inevitable, but it is always better to deal from a position of strength than from a position of parity or weakness. Maintaining our military advantage over China is the key to protecting our interests in peacetime as well as war."

the big problem with the army in china is corruption. instead of effective leadership, they get whoever could bribe their superiors better. they also have a major top-down problem..individual initiative and doing the correct thing without orders is completely unheard of. if we cut off the leadership's ability to communicate, the rest of the army will sit waiting for orders while we take it apart.
