    MILITARY FORCES AROUND THE WORLD NEED TO REPOSITION THEMSELVES OR RISKED BECOMING “AXIS OF EVIL”​

    Within few hours after the brutal earthquake strike Sichuan , China ’s president also the highest military commander, Mr. Hu Jintao, command the nation army, known as PLA (Peoples Liberation Army) to rescue people as soon as possible.

    Thousands of PLA’s soldiers, air forces, navy combined with civilian rescue teamwork rushed to the disaster areas. This is the largest rescue effort in human history. Our great PLA are struggling frantically to rescue survivors with about 50,000 troops in the disaster area.

    This quickly and huge relief effort has win many praises from International community. Compare it with the slow military response when cyclone Nargis strike Myanmar . Compare it with the slow military response when the Katrina hurricane strike America .

    The irony side of the world’s most powerful military force

    Although America is the world’s most powerful military force, it keep spending heavily to upgrade their capability. US military spending accounts almost half of the world's total military spending.

    Recently, American military forces unveiled that they have more than five thousand nuclear missiles. Those quantity of nukes are capable of destroying two earth size planets, change the global climate into winter for thousand years.

    Even a single nuclear bomb can destroy the whole city within seconds. America is the only country on Earth who has dropped atomic bombs to destroy the whole city, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki , Japan . A nuclear bomb is thousand times more destructive than an atomic bomb.

    But when facing the frequent forest fires in American cities which have took so many life, the powerful American military can do almost nothing. They can destroy a whole city in seconds, but they are powerless to extinguish “a tiny scale” of frequent forest fires at American cities.

    American military forces can destroy two earth size planets, they have the capability to change the global climate into winter for thousand years, but they are powerless to neutralize “a tiny scale” of storms, tornados, and hurricanes which frequently hit American cities.

    Designed only to destroy life, not to save life

    Advance military forces around the world are developing night-vision gadgets, mainly aimed to launch military attacks at night. But in many cases around the world, those military forces have to suspend their rescue effort at night, due to darkness. Why ?

    Advance military forces around the world are launching military spy satellites, equipped with high resolution camera and other powerful sensor system, aimed to spy other countries. Advance radar has a highly sensitive heat sensor to track enemy’s missiles or aircrafts at the air. Meanwhile, advance sonar at warships are invented to track enemy’s missiles or submarines. Why don’t installed an ultra-sensitive heat sensors, motion sensors, combined with other advance sensors system on the military satellite to track alive people inside the building ruins cause by earthquake ? The distance is too far away to observe from the sky ? Why don’t installed it at military UAVs, which could fly at low altitude ? Why don’t installed advance sensor aimed to track people drowned at the sea ?

    Military commanders around the world may have a perception that saving life is not part of their responsibility. Or probably the frequent nature strikes such earthquakes, storms, sandstorms, tsunamis, and heat waves are considered not their enemies, although they killed many people and cause billions dollars losses for their own national economy.

    A new perspective for global military forces

    Military forces around the world need to reposition themselves, or risked becoming “axis of evil”. They should refocus their target, mainly to save life, not to destroy life. Killing enemies is the last option.

    Advance weaponary should be adjusted to save life, such as to intercept huge hypersonic asteroids heading to Earth, to neutralize storms, tornados, and hurricanes, to extinguish forest fires, oil blasts, chemical blasts, and so on. Advance military spy satellite and other advance radars should be adjusted to save life, such as to track the upcoming earthquakes, tsunamis, tracking alive people in disaster areas, etc.

    Instead of spending billions USD to build missile-shield not only on domestic soil, but also in allies countries such as US missile-shield in Poland, global military forces should start to invent storm-shield or tsunami-shield to save life.

    A lot more advance military equipments to save life should become the main focus of global military forces. A powerful robotic arm, ultra-sensitive life detector, a huge water bomb should be invented.

    An American aircraft carrier has been sent to deliver a massive foodstuffs, and also serve as a floating hospital for thousands of tsunami victims in Indonesia , at 1998. This is a great story in human race history.

    Our great PLA could lead the global military repositioning

    As the most civilized creature on Earth, human should take a big lesson from the “ocean of blood”, cause by numerous wars in mankind history. That war is a lose-lose solution, even for the winner of the war.

    Despite a few country in this world ignored the “ocean of blood” lesson, but the majority country are ready to negotiate a peaceful solution. But the brutal nature strikes don’t leave any space to “negotiate”.

    How often and how long mankind should keep running away and hide (read : evacuate) everytime when enemies or terrorists (read : the frequent natural disasters) strike us brutally ?

    What about the yet unpredictable earthquake which strike many places around the world frequently ? What about the man-made disaster, such as oil blast in Dalian which take so long (15 hours) to extinguish the fires and could harm the ecology for more than a decade ? Or the oil spill in the gulf of Mexico ?

    As one of the most frequent country being attacked by frequent natural disasters, our great PLA should step up efforts to modernize the army, mainly to save life, not to destroy life.

    It is an undeniable fact that our great PLA is the world’s No. 1 military forces in term of helping people in disaster areas. Look at how bad the powerful American military forces in term of helping their own people when the Katrina hurricane strike them.

    But there’s a lot of urgent homework for our great PLA. Our great PLA could lead the global military repositioning. A mighty PLA should be celebrated around the world, because it aims to save life, not destroying life.

    Celebrating today’s August 1 as our national Army’s Day, billions of us extend our salute and gratitude to our respectable Great PLA Army.

    Happy PLA Day !!!! :china::china::china:

    Re: Happy pla's day !!!! ( with our special request )

    That is a gross generalization of different military without considering how each one belongs to a different political and cultural identities.

    For every country there are equivalent of these: militia, police, border guards, national guard, military, etc. what each branch is tasked with for each is different.

    Where the US military is primarily designed to be an offensive platform while the US national guard is for defence and natural disaster relief, like Katrina.

    Which is not to say that the US military will not do humanitarian missions like the ones they did for the Indian ocean tsunami where they sent USS Abraham Lincoln strike group to provide emergency provisions and health care facilities for those nations hit.

    Similarly the US military was sent for Haiti. Thus it is really irrelevant to claim which military is top dog in one way or the other - it only fuels competitions as both China and the US does a lot of humanitarian jobs.

    Happy Bday to the PLA!

    Indeed. The whole existence of the military is not for disaster relief, constructing roads, working at the stock exchange, mowing your lawn, piloting aircraft, fishing, driving cars etc. It is to defend the country against military threats. That's their mission. The military is but one of the many tools available to a government to allow its continued function and existence.

    Now, since many of the largest threats to a country's continued function and well-being today comes from natural disasters as well, the military has increasingly been used to assist in disaster relief. And contrary to your post, they do indeed use a lot of materiel and resources geared towards warfare in disaster relief.

    As Lezt says, you cannot judge the military's existence and mission by seeing them as isolated, independent organizations. They are a mere branch of a government. It's like saying one should abandon the ministry of industry because all they can do is manage industry.

    PS: Most of your technical stuff were way off the mark.

    PPS: Happy PLA Day :p

    I think the military is used during disasters because 1) they are the easiest to be organized and we know during natural/manmade disasters, time is life; 2) out of all the govn't organizations, they are the only one who have been specifically trained to do their job in a life-threatening situations. This makes them ideal choice for disaster relief; 3) In peace time, it is difficult to simulate the kind of life-and-death situation that will be found on the battlefield. And these situations happen to be the ones that would most likely affect the performance of soldiers and the judgment of commanders and their ability to lead. Additionally, unpredictability is also something that is shared by both war and natural disaster and something soldiers and commanders will have to face. Also during both war and natural disasters, everything, including organization, supply, etc, will be stretched to the limit. Thus, participation in disaster relief becomes a good way of training and gauging the capability of the military.

    Better be Late then Never.

    Happy PLA 8.1 birthday.

    Chinese people ranked PLA as their most popular choice, because they are the people's army, always appearing to help whenever disaster striked.

    Not true.. the USCG rescued 1500 persons in the first 24 hours after Katrina hit but was told to cease by the boneheads at FEMA. In fact Army National Guard forces were ready to respond to Katrina but were also held back do to the ineptitude of FEMA.
