Q: Do you read Chinese official newspapers?

My daily news feed:

China's Official Military Newspaper Warns: "War Is Not Far" 

"War is not far from us. Regional situations around China are complex and unstable, and dangers are hiding under the peace. China cannot afford a military failure, so we must be fully aware of potential crisis and be prepared for battle at all times. When the country is on the brink of becoming a great military power, it’s also stepping into a period with high risks to national security," the official People’s Liberation Army (PLA) newspaper wrote according to China's Global Times.

asd

The article first headlined on Tuesday in the PLA daily: "A soldier without desire for war-preparedness is not a good soldier." The newspaper warned that Chinese soldiers are not ready for combat because many refuse to believe war is imminent.

I suspect any military newspaper, in any country, is going to be full of propaganda and bullshit.

 

This is probably the governments way of 'motivating' the troops to stop being fat, lazy and corrupt and start being obedient and subservient.

 

They have probably been recycling the same basic message ever since they started publication.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jan/13/nuclear-policy-rev...

 

Excerpt:

 

News that the Trump administration’s nuclear policy review loosens constraints on the use of nuclear weapons to improve US military capabilities is a case of déjà vu. It’s back to the hottest moments of the cold war and a reinforcement of the first principle of American nuclear policy – first-use – a policy of questionable value and certain immorality.

 

Reports claim that it is designed to “send a clear deterrent message to Russians, the North Koreans and the Chinese”. This is one-size-fits-all nuclear thinking: “Fire and fury like the world has never seen.” It is another misguided and dangerous policy, as its critics have made clear.

 

“This is not a species to be trusted with nuclear weapons,” Ellsberg writes, presciently. Certainly, Donald Trump is not to be trusted with nuclear weapons. Neither is his doppelgänger in the Kremlin. Nor the prime ministers of India and Pakistan. Nor Little Rocket Man. Dr King’s “fierce urgency of now” never seemed more urgent than now.

Thank Trump for letting the American people in on the dirty secret of nuclear weapons, for making that choice as graphic as it has ever been. The nuclear age has come full circle. But is anyone outside the Beltway paying attention?

Why are they all posting about on the same day? Chinese, British, Russians ... ZeroHedge c&p ....

The Chinese soldiers run from battles in Africa and don't fight. The problem is the mind of the Chinese male has been brainwashed.China is the center of the world on our school maps and the rest of the world does not matter because we are the greatest and most powerful country on Earth. I do not need to fight in another country and miss my family. We need to be prepared for invaders only, but our country is overcrowded, polluted with bad drinking water and pollution, so why would anybody invade us, to what end, for what purpose, don't bother me with this shit, I need to finish my computer game and my mom has some blind dates set up for me to find a wife. I don't have time for soldier bullshit and the money and pay is lousy and now the corruption is gone and I can't get rich being an officer. What is in this for Me? How much does my family get if I die in Africa as a peacekeeper, your kidding right, my funeral will cost more than 50000 rmb, what school can I afford to send my kid to school at for my soldier pay, I work as a soldier in this city, but my hukao want allow my son to go school there, thanks for honoring my service to the country. My father is an ex soldier in China getting 200 rmb a month pension, how much will I get, you don't know, but we love you and will promise to take care of you when you are older, you pinky swear and promise, where do I sign up. I have not even touched on the elephant in the room, a Chinese male would never protect a black female from genocide or rape because of the underlying intolerant racism in their culture, this simply want happen, I have killed many defending civilians of all religions and races and this simply is of no concern to a Chinese male, If you your not Chinese "SCREW YOU". If you can't get a good samaritan law to help your own people dying on the sidewalk to make a phone call instead of making a video on their phone, the rest of the world getting any empathy from China is nothing short of a utopian pipe dream, unless you can be screwed on a business deal for money or resources, then you can be my friend until you are no longer useful to my country.

Shocking Video Shows Kid Placed In Storm Drain During Hawaii's False ICBM Warning

 

Not only did yesterday's stunning false alarm warning of inbound ballistic missiles leave Hawaiians "crying and screaming", it caused some parents to resort to hiding their children in storm drains.

 

 

 

As Alex Thomas notes, while citizens who were on Twitter were informed that the alert was false within ten minutes, it took upwards of 38 minutes for government officials to officially correct said false alarm with a second text message.

A: If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer.
A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
