China's New Great Leap

Angry Chinese Blogger has reviewed the Hudson Institute's report "China's New Great Leap Forward" (PDF). I normally like to review reports like this, as I did with 2005 reports by the Pentagon and the China Commission, but ACB has done so well that another recap and/or deconstruction isn't needed.
Delivering its 95 page report, titled: “China's New Great Leap Forward: High Technology and Military Power in the Next Half-Century”, the Hudson Institute warned Washington that the 'comfort zone' of technological and strategic superiority that has always existed between China's large, but unsophisticated, military, and America's own armed forces, is not only far smaller than previously thought, but that is shrinking at an alarming rate due to the rapid modernization of both China's military strategies, and its domestic R&D capabilities.
