Thread on China's new defense white paper, China's National Defense in the New Era. This WP has just been released by the @chinascio. Press conference is happening now.

Thanks to you know who you are.

#China #PLA
@chinascio WP starts off with Section 1 looking at the "International Security Situation", highlighting that the world is undergoing changes "unseen in a century" with "prominent destabilizing factors and uncertainties in international security".

"The world is not yet a tranquil place".
@chinascio What are the profound changes as seen by China that is transforming the international strategic landscape?

Most prominently, WP points out the acceleration of the "realignment of international powers" with the "configuration of strategic power...becoming more balanced"

Occam's Razor perspective indicates that such complexity is doubtful.

My 1st Master's degree focused on Chinese Intel & Military Ops under a spook & a now-retired general. I researched & wrote on Huawei intensively.

US MIC & #DeepState r in a death-struggle w/ #PRC #CCP #PLA &
despite all of the puffery of the strength of our military, the PRC is gaining more rapidly in power than the US. #DeepState & US MIC are in a pretty tough fight.

We also have to worry about Russia (and Iran) siding with China should a conflict develop between US & PRC
I wrote this back in August of 2016, regarding the danger of a China-Iran-Russia, tripartite military alliance.

The 340 page dissertation I did for my Ph.D. focused on Chinese military and industrial operations.

Comme promis un #thread sur les #biberons. Je vais parler matériaux parce que l’utilisation est à peu près la même. L’ACV dépendra surtout de l’origine du matériau. Et le choix du type de biberon (plastique, verre...) est assez difficile ⬇️⬇️
Je pense que ce qui va suivra va vous apprendra pas mal de choses
Ce que je trouve étonnant c’est que l’analyse que je vais vous faire je ne la retrouve pas sur internet. Pour la petite histoire j'avais fait cette analyse pour mon premier il y a 8 ans 😇
On commence par un point sur le Bisphenol A (ou BPA). Il y a peu de plastiques qui en contiennent. Généralement : PVC et polycarbonate, sachant que depuis quelques années on ne les retrouve pas sur le marché, que ce soit pour des biberons ou des produits génie civil.

Struck up a convo w/ what I suspect was a young IC recruit yesterday. They lived abroad in #China, spoke Chinese, called it “#Xinjiang” (not #EastTurkistan), insisted the @USNavy could never challenge the #PLA Navy in the SCS, that the Chinese have no interest in Democracy. 1/3
… & that #China’s rise poses no imminent threat to America. “So you don’t think the #CCP has a plan to supplant the US as the world’s dominant superpower?” “Not in my lifetime,” they insisted. “Really,” I asked, “not even by 2049?” They responding unblinkingly, “oh, no way!” 2/3
… if these are the kind of denialist, can’t-do-attitude types certain intel agencies are now scraping from the bottom of the Ivy League barrel, perhaps #China really will win. Disheartened to see bright young people buy in to orthodox thought that’s been consistently wrong. 3/3

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

China will try to avoid military adventurism because of the lesson highlighted by American examples. But in the yrs ahead, it will find itself pulled towards foreign military entanglements because of its rapid expanding interests and footprint around the world.

1/ BRI routes
China's military, #PLA, is increasingly called upon to protect China's interests around the globe, including along the routes of the #BRI with its share of unstable polities. The rapid modernisation of the #PLA will enable China to project power much more effectively

The combination of the demand for #PLA to project its power in advancing China's interests globally as well as its modernising capabilities mean that the #PLA will be more likely than ever to be pulled into a foreign military entanglement.
