Chinese Are Told To Be Prepared As Xi Jinping Called On Troops For War
On October 13, the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen ordered all residents to prepare emergency supplies in 72 categories, such as enough food and water for 72 hours and a fire blanket.
Last month, China’s Emergency Management Ministry and several municipal governments, such as Beijing and Tianjin, issued similar orders but the news didn’t attract attention.
Shenzhen made its announcement on the same day that Chinese leader Xi Jinping told troops to focus on preparing for war, fueling concerns that Beijing was getting ready for a conflict.
Chinese leader Xi Jinping visited marine troops stationed in Chaozhou city, about 220 miles away from Shenzhen and also in Guangdong province, and told them “to put all your thoughts and energies on preparing a war, and remain on high alert.”
