("据全球军力排名机构 '环球火力' (Global Fire Power)发布的 '2022年军力排名' 的报告,全球军力排名前三名的国家依次为美国、俄罗斯和中国。 * * * 乌克兰在这份排名中名列第二十二,似乎远不是俄罗斯的对手,但其顽强的抵抗令俄罗斯深陷战争泥沼。乌克兰外交部长库列巴(Dmytro Kuleba)上星期天 * * * 在接受美国国家广播公司(NBC)'与媒体见面'(Meet the Press)节目采访时说:'我相信可以毫不夸张地说,乌克兰已经证明其拥有世界上最强大的军队之一,也许是仅次于美国的第二强大的军队。' 他说,他并不是指的是在数量上,而是战斗经验和能力。 * * * 值得注意的是,台湾在这份榜单中名列第二十一,紧排在乌克兰前一名")

For the first time, I pay attention to military ranking. It is funny, though, because Taiwan is so far away, geographically, from Egyot and Indonesia, that there is no risk of conflict with either. Besides, Taiwan has no plan to invade either, so there is no need for Taiwan to keep a formidable army. O dpubt few country may be able to even think about invading Taiwan, protected by seas.

Summary: "China’s navy is viewed as posing a major challenge to the U.S. Navy’s ability to achieve and maintain wartime control of blue-water ocean areas in the Western Pacific—the first such challenge the US Navy has faced since the end of the Cold War." mo pagination.

Background[:] Key overview points concerning China's naval modernization effort include the following: * * *
Although China’s naval modernization effort has substantially improved China's naval capabilities in recent years, China's navy currently is assessed as having limitations or weaknesses in certain areas, including joint operations with other parts of China's military, antisubmarine warfare (ASW), long-range targeting, a limited capacity for carrying out at-sea resupply of combatant ships operating far from home waters, a limited number of overseas bases and support facilities, a need to train large numbers of personnel to crew its new ships, and a lack of recent combat experience. China is working to reduce or overcome such limitations and weaknesses.24 Although China's navy has limitations and weaknesses, it may nevertheless be sufficient for performing missions of interest to Chinese leaders. * * *" pages 4-5 (footnotes omitted).
