原文:

PLA has already surpassed the U.S. in missile development and its number of warships and air defense systems under the Chinese Communist Party's plan to achieve dominance by 2049, the Defense Department said in a sobering report released on September 2, 2020.

The ultimate goal of the People's Republic of China, or PRC, is to ‘develop a military by mid-Century that is equal to–or in some cases superior to–the U.S. military, or that of any other great power that the PRC views as a threat,’ the DoD's annual report to Congress said.

To that end, the PRC has marshalled the resources, technology, and political will over the past two decades to strengthen and modernize the PLA in nearly every respect.

中譯:

美國國防部於2020年9月1日發布的一份嚴肅報告中表示,依照中共企圖於2049年達到全面統治的計畫,共軍在飛彈研發方面,以及其戰艦與防空系統的數量,目前均已超越美國。

美國國防部於提交給國會的年度報告提到,共軍的終極目標,就是要在本世紀中葉時,發展出一支軍隊,得以抗衡、抑或在某些方面超越美軍,或者其他中共視為威脅強國的軍隊。

為達此目標,過去20年以來,中共一直都在統整各種資源、技術及政治決心,以近乎全面的方式,強化中共能力,並使之現代化。
