From Newsy.com – a multi-source video analysis website which in my mind is a good idea –
‘The U.S. Defense Department’s annual report on China’s military has drawn fire from Chinese officials, who say the Pentagon report exaggerates China’s military power and downplays its more peaceful intentions.’ Here, they juxtapose reports from Fox News, CNN, Xinhua, Global Times and CCTV to provide a more holistic framework to assess the Pentagon Report. I was surprised to hear of the size of China’s peacekeeping forces is the largest (and also in the video) in the UNSC’s ‘nuclear-armed’ group of five permanent members.
