China is both exporting unprecedented amounts of goods (like Japan did) and using much of its income to grow militarily (like Hitler did, but at a slower pace). No country that is not threatened would be foolish enough to spend fortunes expanding and modernizing rapidly its military for offensive operations if it does not intend to use it.
China is upgrading it's miltary. It is now chosing for quality instead of quantity. A lot of their military stuff is still outdated. It is quite normal for a country that gets rich to augment their miltary and they desperately need a bigger and better armed navy to protect their supply lines. Nothing wrong with that.

Germany, Italy, Japan, and the USSR were just upgrading their obsolete military in 1938, both claiming for defensive requirements. Nothing wrong with that. Until Germany and the USSR invaded Poland and then the USSR invaded Finland, Lithuania, Bessarabia, etc, for defensive purposes, nothing wrong with that.
Unfortunately, the allies got tired of playing along with Hitler when it was too late, nothing wrong with that.

Iran and North Korea are just updating their military and their nuclear arsenals, nothing worng with that either, they're cool people and Chinese allies.

Sadam Hussein was updating his military supposedly to defend himself from Iran, nothing wrong with that, until he invaded Kuwait and threatened Arabia. Does it take a lot of insight to conclude that people who are not threatened and spend excessively in weapons probably intend to use them?

China is getting stronger day by day. It can be No. 1 Power in the world.

Super Powers come and go, and these days they dont last as long as they used to. Now China is on the rise and who will then follow China and push it of the perch.

Doubtful. The Chinese economy isn't all it's cracked up to be.

No country can rule in today's multi polar world. China is flexing its muscle and certainly not as defensive mechanism.like their claim to south china sea which is strongly and unitedly opposed by the countries smaller than china in every aspect.

I am not an expert on the 1979 armed conflict between China and Vietnam, however I understand that the Chinese numbers were impressive but they were weak on the battle-field thus feeding the impression that they're good on massive long parades and spit & polish, but less skilled and disciplined in combat.

A lot of their warships have fake technology bolted to their ships to give the impression they have similar radar, etc, but it's all show. This is not to say they won't have good technology in the future, but China, like Nth Korea, is all show (for now anyway).

The Chinese army is neglected by the PRC. Most of it is only suitable for internal security operations. oh and yes, parades


and this (v) pretty much sums up my opinion on china's superpower credentials...
