The Chinese military anciently? Well, except when they were between Dynasties or toward the end of one, China was very often very quietly the most powerful military on earth. The Ming or the Yuan Dynasties could certainly claim this (though the Yuan is not exactly a "Chinese" Dynasty.)

The problem with this all is perception. China was not terribly interested in interacting with anyone outside of it's immediate neighborhood, so nobody knew how powerful they really were. They also did not go on the road of conquest. Truth be told, the Ming was about as aggressive as they ever got. It was the non-China originating Dynasties that everyone ends up remembering.

The Chinese dynasties seemed to have a terrible time dealing with the many, many "barbarian" attacks. In this sense, China faced the same issue that ultimately brought Rome to it's knees. Most advanced ancient states had significant "barbarian" problems...is this not an indication that the larger empires could only expand to a particular point?

Zander, two ears and one mouth or in the world of forums the maxim still applies, two eyes and one mouth.

If you want to know more about this,go to ask the Huns;Go to ask the Mogolians who attached Europe easily and they experienced about 80 years to conquer China and their empie in China only lasted for about 80 years.
