Media Articles after Articles to Mobilize People’s Trade War with the USPosted: August 30, 2018
SCMP’s report “Expect ‘deep structural change’ in ties between China and US, senior adviser says” today with the subtitle “State media commentary calling for ‘strategic confidence’ to deal with trade war pressure a clear sign Beijing expects fight to intensify, according to analysts” tells us Beijing’s determination to fight its trade war to the bitter end, but fail to indicate that CCP mouthpiece People’s Daily’s commentaries after commentaries and articles after articles aim at national mobilization of people to fight a people’s trade war with the US.
You could precisely found such commentaries and articles for mass mobilization at the beginning of Korean War, in which lots of civilians kept watching US warplanes’ destruction of the roads on hills at very cold nights to send signal to trucks to hide in caverns when US aircrafts came and lots of civilians on duty at night in caverns came out to repair road destructed and remove time bombs and obstacles dropped by US air force. CCP’s people’s war ensured the supplies for Chinese troops long away in the front to defeat much better equipped US troops.
Why did the most advanced and riches nation in the world was defeated by very poor and backward China? China had popular support that the US lacked.
Will the US repeat its failure due to sad lack of popular support? Let’s wait and see.
All analysis about economies etc. are irrelevant. As Mencius teaches us, popular support is the key factor in a war.
