China’s Xi Warns Military: Be Ready For War & “Don’t Fear Death”

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

In what is being characterized as a rare address to the world’s largest fighting force, President Xi Jinping on January 04 urged the Chinese military to be ready for war and ‘don’t fear death’.

As the beat of the war drums gets louder in East Asia and abroad, Xi’s rare speech to the military kicked off the New Year with a grim warning, as China and other countries in the region could be preparing for a turbulent year ahead. 

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


Xi advised the military to continue improving upon its equipment, tactics, technology, and combat readiness by engaging in “real combat training.”

He further said, the need to “create an elite and powerful force that is always ready for the fight, capable of combat and sure to win in order to fulfill the tasks bestowed by the Party and the people in the new era.”

In recent years, Xi has ushered in a period of modernization of China’s military, which has worried Asia and Washington alike. Xi is head of the Communist Party’s Central Military Commission, who is also the commander-in-chief of China’s two million-strong military. In October, he claimed his status to be the strongest leader in China that country has seen in decades during the 19th communist party congress.

Local Chinese media outlets report that Xi’s mobilization meeting with the entire armed forces is a first of its kind. Xi stated the goal of the Chinese military is to become a “world class” force by 2050. Perhaps, Xi has hinted at the time period when China expects to overtake the United States.

Analysts say there is a low probability that Xi will put his military in harm’s way in the intermediate time. However, the potential for conflict is high on the South China Sea, on the Korean Peninsula, Japanese territories around the Senkaku/ Diaoyu islands, the South China Sea, the Tibet and Xinjiang regions, as well as two potential hotspots in the Himalayan region along the Indian border.

Bottomline: President Xi Jinping’s rare military address should serve as a warning, that the region is marching towards war. For the address to be conducted early in the year, it’s leading many to believe that the second half of 2018 could be quite turbulent. The one question we ask: Which powderkeg goes off first?

    Like their ‘fearless’ leaders, right?

    “Which powderkeg goes off first?”

    Tough call, but my mammon’s on the boogeyman in N. Korea.

    (only because they’re more vulnerable than Syria & Iran).

      Same here. They’re shipping troops out from Texas to North Korea soon as a “show of force” excuse but things are definitely quietly heating up over there these past few weeks. Almost as if they are putting their pieces in position and waiting for that opening world war trigger. They ain’t shitting around with this one. Even Trump stated soon after he got into office that he was going to take care of the North Korean problem once and for all and he didn’t state it like that with Syria even though he still sent troops over there around that time. So this seems like something that was already on his agenda and given to him by TPTB.

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        Exactly, NC.

        Iran & Syria are both well-armed, and they both have considerable allies.

        NOBODY likes N. Korea (except maybe China, but I think that’s just a facade… China wants their resources… ESPECIALLY the large amounts of Rare Earths there)

        • NC says:

          I think China’s trying to distance itself from North Korea but at the same time they don’t want us getting to close to their border because they don’t want another MacArthur kind of invasion and are wholly prepared to make sure that DOESN’T happen again.

          I think they’re playing both sides for their own benefit like any country would. They want to open up North Korea too, but at the same time they don’t want North Koreans fleeing in herds into their country and causing a whole immigration and economic problem AND they don’t want Western Powers chasing after the North Koreans and coming in with them because the minute we step foot inside China’s borders, it’s game on. It then becomes a war of attrition, a war with Russia and most likely nuclear.

    When wars start putting leaders , presidents , politicians, and law makers on the front lines

    That’s when you know you’ve elected the right people
    All we are to them is Cannon fodder
    No different in any country

    ( don’t get me started on the “elected” in this country, let alone any other . Seems like here it’s the cowards with big mouths pushing the uninformed and brainwashed to do their bidding)

  4. Koorz says:

    So, Xi….. Stand up there WITH them and give the same speech.

    While the US and Israel are the the ones pushing hard for this, I dislike ‘leaders’ who never face any danger – while telling those who MUST to ’embrace it’.

  5. Mark Schumacher in LV says:

    I just wanna get this sht over with, the sooner the goddamned better.

  6. morris adams says:

    be ready for war and don’t fear death… while i stay in the palace and am comforted by your daughters… i really can’t understand why a normal human still buys this shit.

        Here but now they’re gone
        Seasons don’t fear the reaper
        Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain… we can be like they are
        Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
        Baby take my hand… don’t fear the reaper
        We’ll be able to fly… don’t fear the reaper
        Baby I’m your man…

        La la la la la
        La la la la la

        Valentine is done
        Here but now they’re gone
        Romeo and Juliet
        Are together in eternity… Romeo and Juliet
        40,000 men and women everyday… Like Romeo and Juliet
        40,000 men and women everyday… Redefine happiness
        Another 40,000 coming everyday… We can be like they are
        Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper

        Love of two is one
        Here but now they’re gone
        Came the last night of sadness
        And it was clear she couldn’t go on
        Then the door was open and the wind appeared
        The candles blew and then disappeared
        The curtains flew and then he appeared… saying don’t be afraid
        Come on baby… and she had no fear
        And she ran to him… then they started to fly
        They looked backward and said goodbye… she had become like they are
        She had taken his hand… she had become like they are
        Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
