Lest most forumites are too distracted by trivial events, it should be pointed out that the new Chinese paramount leader, Xi Jinping, inspected the Guangzhou military base and used that occasion to show his concern for the living conditions and food of the rank and file sailors and soldiers by going to their mess hall, and helping serve himself a sample of their regular meal.  This is very impressive when you see him do it naturally without any pretense whatsoever.

He also emphasized that the key to a strong military force is absolute discipline in following rules.  This cannot be overemphasized.  An army is only as good as its discipline, period.  With discipline, the whole is ten times greater than the sum of its parts.  Without discipline, the whole is less than one-tenth of the sum of its parts.  Discipline and therefore eradication of corruption and abuse of power are what won their battles leading to 1949.  A disciplined army is kind to the people, while a corrupt or undisciplined one invariably treats the people rudely and abusively.  Abuse of power is the best evidence of lack of discipline.

Then, he outlined how the army should be tasked (http://news.qq.com/a/20121213/000055.htm):

坚决听党的话跟党走


习近平在会见驻穗部队师以上领导干部时特别指出,实现中华民族伟大复兴,是中华民族近代以来最伟大的梦想。可以说,这个梦想是强国梦,对军队来说,也是强军梦。我们要实现中华民族伟大复兴,必须坚持富国和强军相统一,努力建设巩固国防和强大军队。一是要牢记,坚决听党指挥是强军之魂,必须毫不动摇坚持党对军队的绝对领导,任何时候任何情况下都坚决听党的话、跟党走。二是要牢记,能打仗、打胜仗是强军之要,必须按照打仗的标准搞建设抓准备,确保我军始终能够召之即来、来之能战、战之必胜。三是要牢记,依法治军、从严治军是强军之基,必须保持严明的作风和铁的纪律,确保部队高度集中统一和安全稳定。他表示坚信,在实现中华民族伟大复兴的征程中,英雄的人民军队一定能够发扬传统、继往开来,有效履行肩负的历史使命.


President Xi Jinping knows how to lead by his personal example, by his words, and by his ideas.  China will doubtlessly become the world's biggest economy and strongest power during his tenure.  He combined the best qualities of China's many leaders, and yet, we know from his innate humility, China will never be a bully nor seek hegemony, regardless of what her detractors are now saying.  China's detractors, like Vietnam, Japan and the Philippines, are the real bullies, and they are afraid of China because their bullying has no effect on China, and will have no effect on China under the capable leadership of Xi and the rest of the standing committee members.
