    • Absurd Comparison
    • 07.10.10 | 09:45 (IST)

    What a ridiculous comment....China is nowhere as strong as the US military in spite of its growing power: just look at the military spending figures. The US spends near 400 billion dollars, China around 60 billion (that's the revealed but the US believe the total would not exceed 100 billion in light of China's socioeconomic developmental programmes). Meanwhile, neither Iran nor Turkey is as militarily mighty as Israel- they are both paper tigers. Turkey has a large army (and so does Iran) but they still require external assistance to upgrade the quality of their military equipment. When some people compare a clown like Ahmadinejad to Hitler, and countries performing a simple military drill to Hitler and Mussolini (who had a much stronger alliance than that), it is simply frustrating. If I were you I'd worry about how Israel can best act to ensure peace in its territory to guarantee its long-term stability and prosperity
