Pentagon Questions Growing Chinese Military Power

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon is questioning how China intends
to use its rapidly expanding military power, including what it
calls some "disruptive military technologies."
A new Pentagon report also says Beijing continues to develop
weapons that threaten Taiwan, even though tensions between the two
have been reduced significantly.
The assessment comes in the latest in a series of annual
assessments for Congress of China's military power.
The Associated Press obtained a summary of the report, due to be
released later Wednesday.
It says China needs to be more open about its military
modernization; otherwise it risks creating uncertainty and the
potential for misunderstandings and miscalculations by other
nations.
