RE: significant military?

If by sticks you mean modern assault rifles and by 4 planes you mean 2,300 including 400 modern fighters, then yes, every military in the world besides the US is third world. PERIOD.

Anyways, this is nothing new for China, though I think they should be more worried about sandstorms than rain, as those would be much more inconvenient.
