China Talking War

China is preparing for war–again. Xi Jinping met with the seven-member standing committee of the Chinese Communist Party Politburo in late November. According to Xinhua, the state-run news agency, he spoke about preparing for war by integrating political work into all links of combat effectiveness.

Basically, says China Uncensored anchor Chris Chappell, Jinping wants good communist soldiers who listen to their party. And by the party, of course, he means himself. In other China headlines, Chappell reports on the re-arrest of dissident Joshua Wong and Apple Daily’s Jimmy Lai, Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam’s pile of cash and why China is laying claim to the moon, and Kimchi.
