For what do China need 91 new International airports, and military bases in the Indian Ocean and Middle East? 200 million soldiers will one day march on Jerusalem.

The Pentagon has raised its concern about China having global military ambitions. Unlike the former Soviet Union, the communist republic is now capable of challenging the military might of Washington.

China is not only building 91 new International airports. Such airports will be able to lift millions of soldiers in a short notice when required.  Beijing is also seeking naval bases in the Indian Ocean. They are building a new port in the Sri Lankan city of Hambantota, and also a new International airport on the island.  China is also looking for military bases in the Middle East. They hope to get some soon, through corporation with Iran.

Military spending in China has grown about 10 percent annually over the last 15 years. The Chinese government’s published 2009 military budget was 70,3 billion US dollar.

Outlining that Chinese buildup was affecting regional military balance, Admiral Robert Willard, Commander of the US Pacific Command recently said, «China’s rapid and comprehensive transformation of its armed forces holds implications beyond the Asia-Pacific region».

China and Iran are interestingly the two nations on planet Earth that are having most soldiers and paramilitary troops. Iran has less then a million soldiers, but do have 11 million other armed men under Governmental command. The total of armed men available for the Ayatollah is 12 million.

The Peoples Republic of China has 2,2 million soldiers in uniform.  But the communist regime also have 3,9 million paramilitary troops, kept to safeguard the revolution.

Combining their forces, China and Iran can mobilize close to 20 million men for war in the Middle East. That is already a tenth of the 200 million soldiers that will be used in the final war against Jerusalem, explained in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 9:14-18

It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.

The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.

(end of scripture)

A third of mankind is going to be killed by a war, or  «plagues of fire and surflur». That means two billion people will be killed in this likely nuclear confrontation.

China and Iran are already close allied. China exports rocket technology to Iran, and Iran supplies the Asian tiger with 15 per cent of its energy need. As Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facility will not only offend US President Obama.  China will react on such hostile action as a declaration of war against the Communist super power.
