China preparing for war! China leader Chairman Xi Jinping told People's Liberation Army, PLA Troops to "prepare for war." It comes as cities around China are told to prepare emergency supplies. Xi Jinping has also been talking a lot about the War to Resist American Aggression and Save Korea, aka the Korean War. The message is clear—China is willing and able to fight the United States. But this is about more than US China relations. China is also sending a message to Taiwan, that a Taiwan China war would be too costly, so it might as well surrender now.
