China’s Official Military Newspaper Warns: “War Is Not Far”

China’s Official Military Newspaper Warns: “War Is Not Far” thumbnail

War is not far from us. Regional situations around China are complex and unstable, and dangers are hiding under the peace. China cannot afford a military failure, so we must be fully aware of potential crisis and be prepared for battle at all times. When the country is on the brink of becoming a great military power, it’s also stepping into a period with high risks to national security,” the official People’s Liberation Army (PLA) newspaper wrote according to China’s Global Times.

The article first headlined on Tuesday in the PLA daily: “A soldier without desire for war-preparedness is not a good soldier.” The newspaper warned that Chinese soldiers are not ready for combat because many refuse to believe war is imminent.

Military experts agree that the threat of a conflict around China has increased in recent years.

“In regions like the Korea Peninsula, China-India border area and the Taiwan Straits, the PLA needs to be prepared for all possibilities. Our overseas interests in regions like Africa and the Middle East are also under threat due to local instability,” said Xu Guangyu, a retired major general and senior adviser of the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association according to the Global Times.

Last week, President Xi Jinping kicked off the new year with a rare speech to the military urging soldiers to be ready for war and “don’t fear death.”

China’s soldiers should “neither fear hardship nor death,” Xi told thousands of troops during an inspection visit last Wednesday to the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Central Theater Command in northern Hebei province, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been conducting war drills at home and abroad involving most of its military branches. China’s most advanced military aircraft including the J-20 stealth fighter jet, the Y-20 transport aircraft, the H-6k bomber, and the J-16, J-11B J-10C fighter jets have been drilling since the start of the year.

More from the PLA Daily:

The J-20 is conducting air combat training with other fighter planes including the J-16. The J-20 is also practicing beyond-visual-range air combat, and other aircraft, including the Y-20 and the J-10C, are training at unspecified airports on a “plateau region” in order to improve their capability in long-range military transport and air combat

The Economic Times identifies the “plateau region” as the “Tibetan plateau which covered a long Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China.”

While North Korea continues to be a great distraction, China is gearing up for conflict with India on the LAC, according to Global Times.

Potential military conflicts in plateau regions have been on the rise since the border friction with India last year, so increasing military training in the plateau region is highly necessary, a retired PLA officer who used to serve in the air force and asked not to be named, told the Global Times.

“India’s ground force has some advantages in quantity in the border areas, so if conflict happens, China’s air force needs to seize domination of the skies and immediately create an overwhelming advantage for China,” said the officer.

In 2018, China’s urgent caution to its armed forces to prepare for war has been a telling sign that an event is imminent. While many focus on the developments on the Korean Peninsula, the real showdown is emerging between the two nuclear superpowers divided by the Line of Actual Control. What could possibly go wrong when the world’s two most populous nations are increasing at each other’s throat.

    MM, Yep, Mayon may blow. So? It happens about every 12 years on average. Not my problem. It’s ~200 miles from Manila and the winds blow NE to SW this time of year. No threat to most of the Ps.

    How can any country be sure war is not far off if they are not in fact planning to go to war?

    The US is always planning the next plunder and murder. It has been doing so for over 300 years. That is why it has to be taken down, and why no one trusts its word.

    As for China, it sees the US as the insane dog loose on the world and is not to be trusted. That makes the Chinese much smarter then most country’s leaders who are already owned by the Empire. So, they are preparing for the worst and hoping it will not happen, just as we preppers are doing.

    “Davy, the only ones here with “insecurities”

    mad kat, then why do you practice self-flattery daily? Something is seriously wrong with your personality.

    Mad kat, any reason you were hiding this from us?

    “The Philippines’ most active volcano has shown signs of imminent eruption, forcing thousands of people on the main island of Luzon to evacuate. Authorities upgraded the alert level at the Mayon volcano in the southern part of Luzon to “level 3” Sunday after observing steam eruptions and a bright lava glow.”

    Delusional, see my reply to MM above…

    “MM, Yep, Mayon may blow. So? It happens about every 12 years on average. Not my problem. It’s ~200 miles from Manila and the winds blow NE to SW this time of year. No threat to most of the Ps.”

    Goodgle the location and you might understand my comment. You should be more worried about…

    YOU are downwind of all of those on the West Coast. I’m not.

    I did my research and know where it is. The point is all you do is report on US natural disasters you pig. You need to be more balanced mad kat. This disqualifies you as a legitimate. You are just peddling your personal vendetta. SICK

    Davy, you support the most destructive, murderous country in the world and you call me a “sick pig”. YOU are the bloody, decaying flag waving sick pig, Davy. Obvious to all here.

    You have no authority to do anything. It is your delusions of superiority and your psychopathic tendencies that make you believe you do. The site owners decide who they allow here. You do not. You have no power or authority over anyone but yourself. You are deluded if you believe otherwise.

    I’ll post whatever I please as long as they allow it, and I think that is as long as the site exists. After all, most of what I post has to do with peak oil if you give them some thought. Especially the collapse and troubles in the US. The only time the US was good and growing was when it was an oil seller, not an oil buyer. !970 was the turning point. It is all downhill from there and the hill is getting steeper. Enjoy!

    “Davy, you support the most destructive, murderous country in the world and you call me a “sick pig”. YOU are the bloody, decaying flag waving sick pig, Davy. Obvious to all here.”
    Listen to yourself idiot. I don’t support anything other than looking into the collapse process. You are the one obsessed with supporting a rabid unbalanced anti-Americanism. SICKO

    “You have no authority to do anything. It is your delusions of superiority and your psychopathic tendencies that make you believe you do.”
    Shut up mad kat and say something logical. You have no psychological background.

    “I’ll post whatever I please as long as they allow it, and I think that is as long as the site exists. After all, most of what I post has to do with peak oil if you give them some thought.”
    I will moderate everything you say mad kat which is not hard because you don’t say much but the same daily regurgitate. It is not hard to neuter your message of extremism.

    FFS, try and stick to the topic guys. It should come as no surprise to anyone that China is eventually going to just take Taiwan and who knows what else.

    We are living in an time of empire change.

    China had best count their nukes. Not enough to win final war. Just saying. The guy with the football might just take out most of China and take the heat and die-off.
