Chinese Navy Commander Personally Direct Biggest Drill for War

Navy Commander Admiral Wu Shengli personally directing the drill

China stresses that its biggest navy drill now is a routine one but the timing on the eve of the arbitration ruling by the International Court of Arbitration at The Hague tells us otherwise. Moreover, according to Chinese official military forum mil.huanqiu.com’s report today, the drill is of unusual large scale and it is quite unusual for Chinese Navy Commander Admiral Wu Shengli to direct the drill personally and quite a few high-ranking officers to take part in the drill.

However, as lots of US warships are at the South China Sea and may interfere in the dispute between China and the Philippines after the arbitration ruling comes out possibly in favor of the Philippines, China has to concentrate its navy and make it combat ready at this critical moment. That is why the drill is a live-ammunition one, i.e. the entire troops taking part in the drill is armed to teeth.

The drill shows China’s unflinching stance in safeguarding its sovereignty even to fight a war. Is that bluffing? I do not know. However, since Chinese President Xi Jinping has told Chinese people to cherish the Chinese dream to make China strong enough to prevent the repetition of its sad past of being bullied by foreign powers, it is only natural that China has to fight a war to safeguard its sovereignty now no matter how great the cost.

China’s entire South Sea Fleet and parts of East and North Sea Fleets take part in the drill. In fact, in this drill, China has concentrated as much troops as possible. including naval air force, submarines, surface warships and coast defense force. Why shall the scale be so big? It is quite obvious that it is a drill for a large-scale real battle.

Comment by Chan Kai Yee on mil.huanqiu.com’s report “Navy commander directs large scale drill at the South China Sea”

The following is my translation of the full text of the report:

On July 8, the navy organized a life-ammunition confrontation drill in the area near the Hainan Island and Xisha (Paracel) Islands. The troops taking part in the drill are divided into red and blue troops to conduct “back-to-back” attack and defense drill in the designated sea area. Leaders of Military Commision’s joint staff department, training management department and the South Theater and all the standing committee members of the Party committee of the navy take part in the drill and give direction on the spot.

The troops participating in the drill are divided into red and blue troops to conduct “back-to-back” attack and defense drill in the designated sea area. They mainly come from the South Sea Fleet but also contain parts of the North and East Sea Fleets consisting of various kinds of combat platforms including air force, submarines, surface warships and coast defense troops.

    Obama as Commander In Chief should also show up to direct USN Freedom of Navigation. Pivot To Asia without the Commander In Chief to direct USN CSG is like a general who hide under the table to avoid physical harm to himself. If he cannot do it, at least Sec of Def Carter should be onboard CSG and wave to his Chinese counterpart.

      Obama is effectively not a commander in chief of anything in the US right now. In fact he has de facto stop being president of United States. For some months now the US military has openly indicated that they stop following Obama’s presidential instructions as he won’t be president by the end of the year. Early this year, Obama had to issue gag order to stop US Pacific admiral Harry Harris, the American Tojo. Harris defiantly declared that not even Obama could gag him, and only stopped for a short period of time. In the end, it was not Obama’s gag order, but the lack of attention, that shut him up for time being.
      Effectively, USA currently does not have a functioning president. So it does not matter whether it is Obama the president or Obama the cook who observes the navy operations. Renegade admirals are actually in control. Just like other fail states, warlords are the future of US military.

    IMPERIAL WASHINGTON’S SEEKS MAJOR NUCLEAR WARS TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM ITS COLLAPSING ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND POLITICAL MILIEU

    “The drill shows China’s unflinching stance in safeguarding its sovereignty even to fight a war. Is that bluffing? I do not know.

    It is NO bluff. The Red Line has been drawn. The South China Sea is a core interest of China and “Emperor” Obama and his Neo Nazi gang had been warned. This is NOT your backyard. BACK OFF. You have been lucky thus far we let you keep your military bases in East Asia to threaten our NATIONAL SECURITY and even our lives.

    There are three aspects to this coming WAR if warmonger “Emperor” Obama and his general “nutcase” Ashton Carter does not back off. First is if Obama allows his neo Nazi underlings to start a conflict, rest assure they will NOT back off even if they lose the conflict and thereby lose FACE. They WILL seek revenge and/or excuse to conduct a sneak massacre of huge number of Chinese just to satisfy their irrational EGOISTIC NEED TO LOOK LIKE THEY “WON” and then calling for a “ceasefire”. If President Xi is foolish, he will accept. If he is smart, he will NOT and will order a counter missile or nuclear attack to similarly atomize the Americans. And the war escalates and the killings increase unabated.

    Secondly, the war of conquest of East Asia by the European and American powers in the 1800s is NOT over. Imperial Washington through “Fuehrer” Obama and his neo Nazi goons continue to threaten China with their bombs and guns from their bases in Okinawa, Yokohama, Jeju, Subic, Guam, and Diego Garcia, and even Hawaii. In a matter fact, this SAME threat IS INCREASING and not decreasing.

    China and most of East Asian countries generally welcome America and Europe to trade here BUT NOT to impose their military imprimatur here. Who do American think it is? Although viscerally, East Asians, particularly Chinese, would prefer the American armed forces OUT of East Asia, it will not force the Americans out UNLESS it crosses a red line touching on Chinese core interest, whereupon it will NOT just be a war concerning the South China Sea but one of DEFEATING the U.S. armed forces and throwing them out of East Asia once and for all; Out to beyond the first island and second island chain. There can be NO half measures once the war begins.

    If Beijing has indeed more than 300, maybe 1- 3000 nukes, Japanese command and control centers will all be incinerated along with American cities. Japanese citizens can thank Shitzo Ape for the destruction of their cities and colonization by China. They WILL pay for the sins of their militant leaders as will Americans for their fascist warmongering leaders also. Moreover, expect Taiwan to be invaded as will the small islands between Shikoku and Taiwan immediately over-runned by Chinese troops. Meanwhile, American bases in Philippines will also be blasted to smithereens by saturated missile attacks from China. Subic and Puerto Princessa/Palawan islands will be incinerated.

    Thus, will fire burn in East Asia because of corrupt leaders selling out their countries’ national interests to Imperial Washington. And nuclear winter will descend upon America and East Asia and extinguished the bulk of life here on Earth.

    AND the most likely reason why STUPID Obama and his equally STUPID warmongering goons wants to start a war here in East Asia and in Russia, from the third perspective, is because American EXTREME CAPITALISTIC society – economically, socially, and politically – is JUST about to COMPLETELY COLLAPSE into riots and mayhem and penury. They need a diversion from their coming catastrophic debacle, relatively speaking, and NEED wars to achieve just that. As well as to avoid paying ALL their debtors .. this scheming, cheating, untrustworthy, scamming country of U.S. of A. The ultra rich and its Establishment vassals will all have prepared their safe havens together with all their ill begotten wealth from their exploitation of people, resources, and systems during the last 60 years.

    It’s easy to start a war but not so easy to stop one. “Fuehrer” Obama and his Neo Nazi goons ARE INTENT on starting a global WAR with China and Russia. What are the REST of the decent ANGLO-SAXONS doing about THIS? REALLY! IT IS SO UNLIKE CANADIANS, AUSTRALIANS, NEW ZEALANDERS AND BRITISH TO KEEP QUIET AND APPARENTLY INSOUCIANT ABOUT SUCH POTENTIALLY CALAMITOUS AND GLOBAL CASTASTROPHE TO BE IGNITED BY THE AMERICAN LEADERSHIPS? YES, YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING, WE CAN SEE IT, BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH.

    If a real naval confrontation flares up, China will definitely engage in the SCS ring of fire. China has not used combative words to engage the enemy, instead its the enemy beating the drums of war. The US, is in a position of geographical disadvantage and its allies are not ready for war. After the July 12 arbitration award, the US would have lost face in its support for the Philippines PCA arbitral tribunal and President Duterte shall be looking forward to inspect Beijing’s guard of honour in the great hall of the PRC and enjoy some Peking Duck and SCS seafood.
