China’s Military “Will Definitely Retaliate” If Trump Stages October Surprise: State-Run GT

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

China’s English language state-run Global Times, which often serves as an unofficial foreign policy arm of Beijing signaling the communist government’s intent and messages to the West, has issued a new article along with tweets saying the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) stands ready to ‘retaliate’ amid rumors the US could launch attacks on Chinese islands and reefs in the South China Sea.

The publication strongly suggested that soaring tensions with China will be used of Trump to facilitate an October surprise. It began by saying that “Chinese experts said on Tuesday that China could be restrained on retaliating to new US provocations on politics, diplomacy or economy, because Chinese policymakers will not let the Trump administration use them for his reelection, and will wait for the presidential election result to decide how to respond.”

“However, if Washington launches military provocations to challenge the bottom line of China’s national security and sovereignty, China will make immediate and effective retaliations. Experts said whether or not the two major powers can avoid military conflict in the next three months depends on the White House, and China needs to make its deterrence ‘more visible’ to warn the US about how dangerous a war could be,” Global Times wrote.

There’s no way the US would directly attack those islands. They’d get other nations to do the dirty work.

Liberal guy

Nothing will happen

Your Hatred has blinded you to the truth! You hate the Satanist that run the world. Yet you blame the people that are just finding out that their votes don’t count when the counters just say what they want to be true and not the truth of the real count. I do understand where your hate comes from. You just are directing it at the wrong place.


This is all rhetoric and who’s got the biggest balls. I have limited my time on Southfront as I have come to find it does have bias, it seems to lean towards China and Russia and to demonise the West. I know the USA has had corrupt regimes in the last few decades but that is not what we have seen with the Trump regime. He has done some bad things for political purpose just like every country does but overall has not entered any new wars and just wants to build the American economy back up which will piss of China because of trade. China is trying to overtake USA as the global leader unfortunately I don’t not want to be lead by a communist regime and hope free market capitalism prevails. New wars are unfortunately now biological warfare nobody wins with nuclear warheads so it’d be pointless to start one.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
