"From National Defense to Global Justice": China Changes Legislation for Military Entry into the International Arena


Beijing is amending its national defense law, demonstrating China's commitment to global justice, writes the Chinese newspaper The Global Times.


The updated law is expected to take effect on January 1, 2021, upon approval by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (PRC's highest legislative body). This was announced on December 26, 2020 by Xinhua News Agency.

Most Chinese experts believe that China will be able to take care not only of national interests, but also of other countries, fulfilling a unique role on the planet. Protecting world peace at a time when evil forces are trying to devastate it will become an external priority. policy Beijing.

Introducing the latest version of the law, the representative of the legislative bureau of the Central Military Commission of China emphasized that the PRC follows a policy that is defensive in nature and will actively promote international military cooperation, countering acts of invasion and expansion. The new amendment suggests that China will assert itself in terms of global justice, especially in countering acts of aggression by regional and global hegemonies, in addition to protecting its own interests.

According to military analyst Song Zhongping, amid collusion and actions of selfish hegemonies and the rise of terrorism, separatism and nationalism, today's world is not peaceful and needs China to play a unique role in establishing justice. It became necessary for China to strengthen its defense capabilities, including for just goals abroad. This will enable China to assume responsibility for regional and global security. In fact, we are talking about China's military entry into the international arena.

According to the new concept, every Chinese must participate in national defense. All organizations, political parties, civil groups, enterprises, public and other structures should support and participate in the development of national defense, summed up the media from the PRC.

          Can't confirm with links now. A couple of years ago there was such information. In June this year, a 25-year partnership agreement was signed. Some of the documents were published. The section on military technical cooperation is classified. It was about the lease or sale of ports at the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz.

            It may very well be that they are there. As I understand it, this is why the legislation is being changed so that the military should be "thoroughly populated", that is, to bring the regulatory framework. Apparently the likelihood of a conflict is quite high. Accommodation abroad is one thing, participation in a conflict is another. The Chinese leadership demonstrates its readiness to defend its interests by military force does not want accusations of "voluntarism".

              Most likely there will be another one from Iran. China is creating the backing for its Belt and Road concept. There will be a base in Pakistan. We will soon see the confrontation between China and India. Most likely India will be in the Anglo-Saxon camp.

                The question is, are they ready to apply them. In principle, everything is logical and step by step. First, property is bought abroad, the question of its protection arises. Silenok saved up, aircraft carriers were built, the next stage of use if necessary.

                Israel gives China the keys to its ports

                The Chinese military will not be there.

                Most likely there will be another one from Iran. China is creating the backing for its Belt and Road concept. There will be a base in Pakistan.

                Done right. yes Unless they manage to "trample" and "de-democratize" Iran earlier.

                We will soon see the confrontation between China and India.

                The opposition has existed for quite a long time, we can only talk about an aggravation.

                Most likely India will be in the Anglo-Saxon camp.

                But this has not yet been determined, "we will see." Naturally, they need to fight with someone's hands, but the advantages for the Indians are not at all obvious.

          China and Iran maintained close military-to-military contacts throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Among other things, China helped Iran boost its anti-access / area denial (A2 / AD) capabilities by selling tactical ballistic and anti-ship cruise missiles (eg, HY-2 “Silkworm” anti-ship missiles), advanced anti-ship mines, and Houdong fast-attack boats (equipped with anti-ship missiles) to the Islamic Republic.

          China also provided technical expertise to Iran by, for example, helping develop Tehran's indigenous Nasr anti-ship cruise missile. “Chinese design and technology can be seen in many Iranian missile series, from the short-range Oghab and Nazeat missiles to the long-range Shahab 3,” a 2012 RAND study explains.

          Beijing moreover offered assistance to Iran's nuclear program by training Iranian nuclear engineers and helped Iranian master uranium exploration and mining. Between 2000 and 2002, China also delivered a number of C-14 catamaran missile boats, but, as a Jamestown Foundation briefing notes, “the arms relationship essentially ended by 2005.”

          Here's an incomplete list. Ballistic missiles, aviation, air defense, anti-ship missiles, boats, all this requires not only engineers and specialists, but also military instructors.
          Whether there are military advisers and instructors there, everyone can decide for himself.

    From the beginning of Deng Xiaoping's reforms to the declaration of an economic war by the United States, the PRC performed an economic miracle comparable to the Soviet Union of the era of J.V. Stalin - it went from "plow" to flights to the moon and quantum communication lines, became the largest economy in the world, whose interests extend to the whole world and need protection around the world.

    Since the 80s, the United States has been pumping China with investments and technologies in the hope that it will grapple with the USSR / Russia. It didn't burn out. Now China is their enemy number one, in an alliance (yes, it seems that now it is really in alliance) with enemy number two Russia. What's next?

        It depends on Russia itself, what it will be like at this time. No one needs competitors, and China in this regard is unlikely to be more sentimental than others.

          123 ... After the main showdown with the United States (with such tendencies in the United States itself), perhaps the PRC will emerge victorious (not necessarily in a hot war) and the PRC is more tied in the south of the Pacific region, there are problems with neighbors for more than a decade (Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Australia, etc.) ... Also, the Indian Ocean with neighboring India and others ... The PRC is in a tight spot and needs a reliable rear (otherwise the PRC will be taxed from all sides), and it is in the form of the Russian Federation. Already today, the PRC acts as the instigator in joint maneuvers and other acts with the RF Armed Forces ... Therefore, friendship with the PRC is guaranteed to us for a long time ...

            Politics and friendship are difficult concepts. It is somewhat naive to rely on any guarantees. The best guarantee is a powerful army, navy, and of course the economy. hi

                Are you tired of whining? More than 300 new production facilities were opened during the year. Why won't we have an economy? Perhaps in numbers, the impending economic collapse will be clearer? Can you?

                The main problem of the Russian Federation, in the liberals in power since the EBN, and A. Chubais is a clear guarantor of this.

                Well, Chubais is not particularly in power. Who do you want to go there? Zyuganov? Are there any candidates?

                A. Chubais put V.V. Putin in the presidency with all the consequences and oaths: not to destroy this alignment of the comprador liberal power and structure ...

    demonstrating China's commitment to global justice,

    American justice is not enough, and Chinese is also being added. I have worked with the Chinese. They smile in their eyes, but they keep "a fig in a pocket". All non-Chinese are treated like Papuans. Nazis in full.

    Interesting article the other day:
    "The Coming Global Reaction Against China"
    "... from Helen Raleigh's new book, Backlash: How Chinese Aggression Backfired."
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/coming-global-backlash-against-china-113024712.html

    The leader of the Chinese Communist Party, Xi Jinping, is the most influential leader of Communist China since Chairman Mao. However, X's strong man's appearance hides his inner insecurity. When he took office in late 2012, China's economic growth slowed from double-digit to single-digit; the working-age mass population, which was the engine of China's economic growth, began to decline. The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a think tank in Washington, DC, predicts that by 2030 "China will make up for its shrinking workforce by hiring foreign workers." At the same time, according to Mark Haas, professor of political science at Duquesne University, "China alone will have over 2050 million people over 329 by 65." Hence, China is expected to be the first major economy to grow before it reaches widespread prosperity. Without a demographic dividend and with an aging population, China's economic growth will slow further at a time when the government needs to keep its growing middle class from demanding a level of political freedom that matches their newfound wealth. An aging population will also force the government to devote more national resources to elderly care and social services, which means there will be fewer resources to compete with the United States. This is probably one of the most important reasons Xi believes he should abandon the so-called Strategic Patience Guide published by Deng Xiaoping, China's supreme leader from 1978 to 1997, who instructed his comrades to play for time and avoid any confrontation. with powerful external forces until China is in a much stronger position, both economically and militarily. ...
    Xi, however, believes that China cannot wait any longer. It must replace the liberal world order with a China-centric world order before China's population gets too old and the Chinese economy too stagnant.... However, instead of promoting economic reforms and opening up more sectors to foreign investment and competition in order to strengthen their economy, Xi chose to hide China's weaknesses and exaggerate China's economic strengths. He emphasizes China's independence and use of resources to support "national champions" or state-owned enterprises that can compete with world leaders in strategic sectors. Xi feels that nationalism is his new trump card, something that he can use to motivate, inspire, and unite a billion people while at the same time strengthening the CCP's hold on them. Others say that its inward-looking nationalist policies are driving China into a very middle-income trap - in which China's level of development stalls before reaching the heights of other modern industrialized nations - which Xi and his predecessors have tried very hard to avoid.
    However, the more the Chinese economy slows down, the more Xi feels the need to create an image of a strong person both abroad and especially at home.... As two Chinese scholars Wang Gongwu and Zheng Yunniang wrote in China and the New International Order, these dynamics are deeply rooted in Chinese history: “China's internal order was so closely tied to its international order that one could not exist for long without the other. ... ; when the barbarians showed no obedience abroad, the rebels could more easily rebel within. Most of the dynasties fell under the double blow of internal turmoil and external disaster, nei luan wai huang, that is, internal rebellion and foreign invasion.
