    For anyone who keeps up with bible prophecy - that 200m man army in the Battle of Armageddon comes from China...how closer to achieving this number now?

    China's birth limits create dangerous gender gap

    BEIJING – China has 32 million more young men than young women — a gender gap that could lead to increasing crime — because parents facing strict birth limits abort female fetuses to have a son, a study released Friday said.

    The imbalance is expected to steadily worsen among people of childbearing age over the next two decades and could trigger a slew of social problems, including a possible spike in crime by young men unable to find female partners, said an author of the report published in the BMJ, formerly known as the British Medical Journal.

    "If you've got highly sexed young men, there is a concern that they will all get together and, with high levels of testosterone, there may be a real risk, that they will go out and commit crimes," said Therese Hesketh, a lecturer at the Centre for International Health and Development at University College London. She did not specify what kinds of crimes.................

    A country short on women is a pizzed off country. Dangerous indeed.

    Why won't the 200M man army be from the Middle East or Russia? That seems much more likely given their (lack of) affinity for Israel. I also wouldn't rule out Europe from having the 200M man army, since based on biblical text the anti-Christ comes from Europe.

    It's pretty sexist of those feminist researchers to claim that a bunch of single men will definitely cause violence or unrest. China has had a gender imbalance going back in its history when it was one of the richest most powerful countries in the world, but it did not go around invading other countries. Colonialism and imperialism are mostly Anglo constructs. I have also read reports that say India faces a similarly big gender gap, and yet those researchers don't make the same claims, which makes their research potentially propagandist.

    Regarding the gender imbalance, way back when, China's males had a bunch of eunachs and monks in society. In modern times, I've read the men (especially in major cities) do most of the cooking/cleaning/child-rearing in order to compete in the skewed supply/demand for women they have over there. I don't envy their situation.

    State mandated abortion is creating a very unstable society. Check the age demographic as well as the sex demographics, not a good situation. Worse than W Europe.

    When was the last time you peeked out your shuttered windows, there might be one in the bushes.......communist that is. :D

    I read an artical a couple of years ago about a study linking an overpopuation of men to a higher probability for war. So China could fit that profile. The thing is nowadays with economies intertwined its just to costly for large scale wars imo.
