The place for getting your daily dose of all things military within the Chinese realm.

The simple fact is that China has been flexing its muscles for some time now. Be it in the South China Sea or the far-off stretches of the Arabian Gulf, the easy answer would be to club Chinese military doctrine as an Anti NATO or anti-West mindset like an evil mastermind from a James Bond movie.

In here, we examine the latter aspect without losing perspective of the Asian giant’s larger goals.
