China’s Xi: “We must persist in strengthening the overall planning of war and make preparations for military struggle.”
Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged the country to prepare for a military conflict. The Chinese leader demanded more power and resources for the country’s armed forces, the People Liberation Army (PLA).
The PLA “must be placed in a more important position, and the consolidation of national defence and a strong military must be accelerated.” the Communist dictator declared on Friday. “We must persist in strengthening the overall planning of war and make preparations for military struggle,” he added.
Friday’s statement comes amid series of threatening remarks aimed at the United States and the West made by the Chinese leader since President Joe Biden took over the White House.
In early July, Xi threatened that China’s adversaries will “have their heads cracked and bleeding” in any future confrontation. They “will find themselves on a collision course with a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people,” he warned in a televised speech marking the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party.
The Hong Kong-based newspaper South China Morning Post reported the Chinese leader’s comments:
Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for a greater focus on national defence and the military in a speech given on the eve of an important military anniversary and as the nation faces a growing range of security risks.
After giving a spirited speech on the achievements of China’s Communist Party during its centennial celebrations earlier this month, Xi said on Friday: “On the path of completely building a modern socialist country and realising the second centennial goal, national defence and the military must be placed in a more important position, and the consolidation of national defence and a strong military must be accelerated.
“We must persist in strengthening the overall planning of war and make preparations for military struggle.”
Xi’s comments on the military’s development were made two days before the PLA’s 94th anniversary and come at a time when China is facing heightened security risks.
These are not empty threats from a raving Maoist tyrant. Since President Donald Trump left office, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has come out even more openly about its plans for global domination. In February 2021, the CCP-run parliament unveiled the road map to overtake the U.S. economy in 15 years. The Chinese Communist grand plan includes sweeping modernization of its military by 2027, to coincide with PLA’s 100-year anniversary.
Under Xi Jinping’s watch, the Communist regime has come to possess the world’s largest navy in terms of ship numbers. Beijing “has the largest navy in the world, with an overall battle force of approximately 350 ships and submarines including over 130 major surface combatants,” the U.S. Defense Department’s 2020 military assessment said.
As China builds up its military might, it is also setting the stage for the next armed conflict. The CCP leadership makes no secret of its intention of annexing the neighboring island nation of Taiwan. In recent months, Chinese fighter jets have repeatedly invaded Taiwanese air space, as Beijing demands Taiwan accept “One China” policy, which will turn the independent country into a Chinese province.
