LIBRARY OF MOST CONTROVERSIAL FILES Russia Warns US-China-Japan Pacific War “Just Weeks Away” Posted: 14 Jan 2014 02:44 AM PST An “urgent” report issued today to the General Staff from the highly secretive Deputy Defense Minister General Pavel Popov is warning that war can be expected to erupt between the Pacific Powers of the United States, Peoples Republic ofChina and the State of Japan “within weeks” due to a power struggle currently “exploding” within the Communist Party of China (CPC). According to this report, the recent decision by Chinese leader Xi Jinping to prosecute retired security tsar Zhou Yongkang’s son Zhou Bin for corruption is the “leading impetus” that has lead to a fracturing of loyalties in the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) between those advocating immediate strikes against Japan and those cautioning a more strategic and diplomatic course of action in a number of territorial disputes between these two nations.

Stalinist policies won’t help China in long run: Claude Arpi | The new leadership in Beijing has shown the way it intends to go: Bo Xilai, Chongqing’s discredited party secretary (and former member of CPC’s political bureau) has been sentenced to life imprisonment. The People’s Daily, the Party’s mouthpiece speaks of “a persistent, high-voltage campaign” against corruption to correct the party’s style and win people’s support. Xinhua says that probity is “the chief principle in self-discipline while law is a precondition for governing a country. … It is the common wish of all party members and citizens”. It is at least the will of general secretary Xi Jinping, as entire episode of the mediatised case and Sunday’s judgement was minutely orchestrated by the party. Chinese news agency asserts: “Sentencing Bo Xilai in accordance with law fully reflects that nobody is exempt from party discipline and national law, and whoever is involved must be thoroughly investigated and severely ...
SIDE SHOW OFF BO XILAI. Rumours from sites normally hostile to CPC and the Chinese government have reported that just before Bo Xilai's secret deeds were unraveling, the Dalian businesssman Xu Ming, the one who bought a 2-million Euro house in France for use by Bo's wife and son, laundered off 50 million RMB out of China and used it to conduct public relationships attacks on the families of Wen Jiabao and Xi Jinping. The Zhou Yongkang faction helped gather secret personal real and false information about Wen and Xi friends and relatives to construct two sets of complicated smears. They hired PR professionals to even bribe journalists to put these info out. That money has not been used up yet and attempt to subvert investigations are still going on. Xu Ming has been arrested and has talked to try and lighten his punishment. Lots of plea bargaining going on in US system. A little bit of it in China too.

Bitter Harvest: China’s ‘Organ Donation’ Nightmare ~ When Wang Lijun made his break for the US consulate in Chengdu on the night of February 6th 2012, he was in a unique position to reveal a series of damaging stories about his superior, Bo Xilai: Bo’s familial connection to the suspected murder of British businessman Neil Heywood, siphoning of Chongqing’s public funds, and shakedowns of local criminal and triad elements. As former head of the Chongqing Public Security Bureau, Wang also knew that Bo, as Chongqing party secretary, had engaged in surveillance of Politburo members, potentially implying that Bo and other players aligned with Jiang Zemin’s faction—most prominently, Zhou Yongkang, secretary of the powerful Political and Legislative Affairs Committee (PLAC)—were thinking about seizing power. Faced with the complexity of China’s leadership transition crisis, most Western editors played up the Sopranos aspect of the sordid tale, fixing on the alleged Heywood murder, essentially t ...
