The conflicting deployments of the Chinese regime around the world are already commonplace, but now Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, has ordered the army to prepare for action.
This attracts much attention, even if Xi claims it is only for “non-warlike” purposes.
Currently, the Communist Party of China (CCP) has active disputes with dozens of countries. It also has a large fleet of hundreds of “fishing” vessels that ply the seas, intimidating countries that do not conform to its controversial territorial policies.
These circumstances demonstrate that the armed forces of the Chinese regime have indeed not remained inactive at any time—quite the contrary.
Even more so, if we consider that for years they have escalated their incursions and threatening rhetoric against the sovereignty of Taiwan, which they intend to invade despite being a democratic nation with more than 23 million inhabitants.
Thus, the order issued by Xi on June 13 does not go unnoticed, nor does the general outline composed of 59 articles that serve as the legal basis for the military operations that went into effect on June 15, 2022.
The new directive, disseminated through official information channels, gives rise to much speculation, increased by the fact that it was not published in its entirety.
Radio Free Asia, for its part, comments on the matter: “… prompting concerns that Beijing may be gearing up to invade the democratic island of Taiwan under the guise of a ‘special operation’ not classified as war.”
In this sense, the apparent innocuousness of mobilizing the Chinese armed forces for non-war purposes could also be the first official step toward a full-scale war.
Even more so, considering that this order for the preparation of “non-war” actions follows a mobilization order issued last month during a confidential internal meeting of the Communist Party of Guangdong province, China.
This activation of the vast war machine leads one to presume the worst prospects for the free world, given that it could be the effective implementation of “… a nationwide mobilization order from the top echelons of the CCP.”
The Guangdong National Mobilization Order
In a little-publicized publication, the Lutheran Times (路德時評, in Chinese) revealed: “..the secrets of the Communist Party of China’s conspiracy and preparation to launch a new strategy and tactics for a new people’s war against the whole world under the leadership of Xi Jinping.”
It added: “The transfer of Guangdong Province to a state of war is the implementation of a national mobilization order from the top echelon of the Chinese Communist Party, led by Xi, to prepare for war.”
It further explains, “People’s War, for the Chinese Communist Party, is a war waged with the lives, property, and resources of the entire Chinese people and all Chinese as the tools and weapons of war.”
It goes on to add: “For the aggressor, it is a war in which the life, property, and resources of the other side are used as the target and the result of the war, to intimidate and coerce the other side into admitting defeat.”
It should be noted that Guangdong province is the most powerful province in China regarding economy and population and has to sacrifice itself to fulfill Xi’s strategy.
From the Lutheran Times, “Obviously, the main battlefield and strategy are not only Taiwan but also the United States and the entire Pacific region.”
Escalating the conflict on a global scale means the commitment and sacrifice of the entire Chinese people and the totality of their resources.
“This is an over-the-top tactic that surpasses the West’s knowledge of world war, but the West does not fully realize that this is their greatest weakness in the face of the new Chinese Communist war model,” the Free Lutheran Times continues to warn.
Recent U.S. actions vis-à-vis the Chinese regime
For its part, the U.S. government is currently showing a definite shift toward the Chinese regime, expressed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken in his May 26, 2022, speech.
He said: “Even as President Putin’s war continues, we will remain focused on the most serious long-term challenge to the international order – and that’s posed by the People’s Republic of China….”.
He added: “China is the only country with both the intent to reshape the international order and, increasingly, the economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power to do it.”
He also defined, “[W]e cannot rely on Beijing to change its trajectory. So we will shape the strategic environment around Beijing to advance our vision for an open, inclusive international system.”
It is clear to Blinken that Washington’s primary national security challenge is the CCP. In this sense, the perception of this Democratic administration coincides with the previous Republican administration.
Likewise, a senior U.S. official expanded on the context in a briefing before Blinken’s speech, saying that U.S. policy is focused on “constraining Beijing’s ability to engage in coercive practices.”
He further stated that Washington and its allies seek to: “leverage our collective strength” and “close vulnerabilities that China is able exploit.”
However, former White House National Security Council advisor Matthew Pottinger believes, “While the “soul” of U.S. policy now consistently emphasizes rivalry with Beijing, the “body” has yet to fully follow.”
Pottinger notes that concrete actions to prevent the flow of U.S. capital and technology to the Chinese military-industrial complex are missing during the current U.S. administration, in addition to other contradictory actions which favor the CCP.
And the need for an adjustment of the U.S. posture would not be surprising, given that the destruction of the U.S. could be the main objective of the Chinese regime, as is evident from the words of its leader, Xi Jinping:
“… our struggle and contest for power with the West is irreconcilable, and, therefore, will inevitably be long, complex, and at times extremely sharp,” quotes researcher Ian Easton in his book, “The Final Struggle: Inside China’s Global Strategy.”
He also mentioned Xi’s phrase: “The ultimate demise of capitalism, and ultimate triumph of socialism, will inevitably be a long historical process,” so one can take his mobilization of the army as a first stage of the “final onslaught.”
However, it is to be assumed that all nations of Western culture will defend themselves, given the risk that their civilization could disappear, partially or totally.
The CCP has been trying for decades to make the millenary traditional Chinese culture disappear but without success.
