Pentagon: China Restructures for War

China’s military underwent a major restructuring last year in a bid to prepare its military for conflict, the Pentagon said in its latest annual assessment of the Communist Party-controlled People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

The armed forces were reformed with new military regions, a new command structure, and updated strategies to better fight regional, high technology warfare, the 145-page report to Congress says.

“These reforms aim to strengthen the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) control over the military, enhance the PLA’s ability to conduct joint operations, and improve its ability to fight short-duration, high-intensity regional conflicts at greater distances from the Chinese mainland,” the report said.

  • They make their moves in the South China Sea and provoke South Korea.

    It’s time for a new pan-Asian alliance.

    It is also time for massive robots.

      • I’m thinking more like Robot Tae Kwon V or Japanese battle-bots which – if the Koreans and Japanese were smart – should be built instead of using men.

    What else is China to do with those millions of young men who have no hope of a spouse? I guess the only alternative would be to change them into either homosexuals or trannies. On a bit more serious note, there is the real risk of all those young men with no hope of finding a wife to cause some difficulties for the communist regime, if they are not put to a different use.

      I think china will invade a neighbour for food and women.

      The chinese have been importing more foodstuff than they have been exporting the last few year.

      • The North Korean situation.

          Actually China invading North Korea would be the smartest thing they could do. It gives them an out of funding the Regime, gives them access to more good farm land and women and lastly it gives them the ability to say they did it to prevent the regime from starting a war with the west.

          If they played it right I could see western leaders giving them a pass on it.

          • China already does that.

            North Korea exists because of China. When Kim Jong Un gets killed by his generals and North Korea goes to sh–, China will kill all refugees.

            No, China’s invasion of North Korea is NOT the answer.

            The West already gives China pass on what is doing to North Korea.

    • What Exile said.

      They are using North Korean women.

      Because it’s 2016.

    As was shown here not too long ago, China has economic feet of clay.
