Speaking on Friday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing Xi Jinping’s belligerent speech was met by unanimous applause whilst he boasted of China’s resistance against US aggression and aid to North Korea in the brutal civil war from 1950 to 1953. The Korean civil war was the only military conflict between China and the United States. Xi Jinping held the conflict which led to a stalemate as a demonstration of China’s military might against American imperialism.
The Chinese leader tasked his nation to learn from history and quickly modernise its military.
The stability and internal security-obsessed leader was at pains to emphasise the ruling Communist Party should always maintain “absolute leadership” over the military.
Levying a not so subtle attack on the US Xi Jinping stated: “We will fight and fight to the end, even if you are the number one superpower in the world.
“Any actions that focus only on oneself and any efforts to engage in hegemony and bullying will simply not work not only will it not work, but it will be a dead end.”
The Chinese leader added: “Seventy years ago, the imperialist invaders fired upon the doorstep of a new China.
“The Chinese people understood that you must use the language that invaders can understand.
“You must fight a war with war and to stop an invasion with force, earning peace and respect through victory.
“The Chinese people will not create trouble.
“Chinese people are not afraid of them.
“No matter the difficulties or challenges we face, our legs will not shake and our backs will not bend.”
