China increases military spending

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday the United States is concerned about China's military build-up due to Beijing's tensions with Taiwan, an island Washington has vowed to defend.
To say the least. Not to be uncharitable towards China, but come on, folks. It should be concerning that the Chinese are building up their military, and not just because of Taiwan.

Oh, don't be so hard on them.
If -you- were an aggressive communist regime bent on dominating the region and world economic stage, you'd be building your military too. I mean, do you expect them to just sit there and accumulate human rights violations without getting bored of such paltry misdemeanors?
