Pentagon report on China

China has already hit back at a Pentagon report on its rising military might telling the world that it was exaggerated and an interference in Chinese domestic affairs.

"The Pentagon report exaggerates China's military strength and expenditure with ulterior motives," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted in its Web site.

I can recall Donald Rumsfeld stating his views on the Chinese military build up but I cannot recall reading anything on how Robert Gates views the same. Has anybody?

Here's a good book to consider on the China question which is very good in terms of how the U.S. should engage it, 'The Writing on the Wall: Why We Must Embrace China as a Partner or Face It as an Enemy'
