Chinese Officer Calls for Hard Line Against U.S.

Epoch Times
March 9, 2010

In his new book, China Dream, Senior Colonel of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Liu Mingfu appears poised with gauntlet in hand, wielding statements such as “It is time [for China] to cast away illusions and get ready for the duel with the United States for global dominance in the 21st century.”

The book was released just before the convening this month of the annual sessions of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

At the two sessions in Beijing, the defense budget will be one of the hottest of topics. At the same time a year ago, Beijing announced its defense budget for 2009—an impressive 14.9 percent raise over 2008. Some military experts think the actual defense budget for 2010 far exceeds this.

According to state-run media in China, Colonel Liu’s 303-page book has attracted extensive attention. After an arduous bidding process with a few dozen publishers vying to publish the book, the China Friendship Publishing Company won out.

Lieutenant General Liu Yazhou, a well-known military strategist, senior commissar and member of the party elite, wrote the preface for the book.

In the book, Liu calls on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to build up its military, in order to topple the United States.

“China’s grand goal in the 21st century is to become the world’s No. 1 power,” said Liu, professor and director of the Institute of Military Construction at the elite National Defense University. He added, “Rivalry between the two powers is a competition to dominate the world, a conflict over who rises and who falls.”

Liu’s arguments contradicted the policy to “never seek hegemony” of previous Chinese leaders, and the “peaceful rise of China” policy of the current regime.

It’s not the first time military professors have made hawkish arguments. In 2005, Chinese Major General Zhu Chenghu, professor and Dean of China’s National Defense University, told journalists in Hong Kong that China might start a nuclear war if the U.S. decided to intervene in a military conflict in the Taiwan straits.

According to a report by The New York Times, General Zhu said, “If the Americans place their missiles with precision-guided munitions [so-called “smart bombs”] into the target zone of China’s territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons.”

Zhu made a dramatic conclusion, “We… will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xi’an. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared for hundreds… of cities to be destroyed by the Chinese.” [1]

While western countries are plodding along the road to recovery from the financial crisis, advocates of a hard line against the United States and Europe are again being listened to in China. Liu’s opinions ring out as a dominant voice amid shrill, persistent voices that demand an offensive strategy towards Washington, on such thorny issues as Tibet, human rights, trade, the environment, and arms sales to Taiwan.

In an interview with the Voice of America, (VOA) Professor So Wai-Chor of the Open University of Hong Kong said though Liu said, “the book represents only his personal views, it’s likely the publication has the tacit approval of the CCP.

So said, “I believe that it may reflect the views of the Communist regime. They want to test the waters. For sensitive topics, such people are able to make their views public only if approved by the authorities.”

China’s No. 1 online military forum is considered to be A blogger recently posted there, “The Soviet Union collapsed because all the people in the country held similar views. Luckily, this time the advocate [of such war-oriented views] is only a PLA colonel.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
