God I hate defending cutthemdown, but he is correct that China does spend more then what they official publish. They don't official report everything budget toward the military, plus the PLA earns its own money through the number of companies they control or have part ownership in. Those companies rack in billions of additional dollars a year that is unaccounted for.
