Media reports on China’s modernization and military development have been viewed as news about Chinese military threat. But in my point of view, China’s growing military strength means more chances for peace. Our ancestors liked to build walls to ward off their enemies
and evil spirits. As the most magnificent and largest defense project in ancient China, the Great Wall is effectively the manifestation of strategic defense thought of the Chinese nation and our longstanding peace-oriented nature. The Great Wall is no longer a wall to ward off
enemies. It has turned into a bridge that links the east and west, the south and north, and the countries all over the world.
