Leaked Chinese Memo Warns Of "Thucydides Trap" With US, "War Is Unavoidable"
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]




A series of leaked internal documents reveal that China's military reforms are aimed at allowing Beijing to "manage a crisis, contain a conflict, win a war" and overtake the United States in military strength, according to the Express.


The leaked documents were published by the Central Military Commission in February for the purpose of spreading President Xi Jinping’s “thought on strengthening the armed forces”.

If the reforms go ahead, they will lead to heightened tensions with China’s neighbouring countries, including Japan, in the East and South China Seas and the US. -Express

“As we open up and expand our national interests beyond borders, we desperately need a comprehensive protection of our own security around the globe,” read the leaked documents, which adds that a strong military is the best way to "escape the obsession that war is unavoidable between an emerging power and a ruling hegemony".

It's worth noting that in March Beijing rolled out their largest defense budget in three years.

They are just saying that a strong military is the best way to avoid war.

They want peace, same as the US, that is all.
