U.S. Trains China for War ... With U.S.=20
  NewsMax.com
  Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2000=20
Chinese troops are being trained for war with the United States, using =
methods freely handed over to them by the U.S. Army.=20

According to an official Chinese military publication, the U.S. Army =
invited representatives of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) to visit =
an Army base and observe the mock war exercises in which our troops, =
tabbed the "Blue Army," fight "enemy" troops using the most up-to-date =
tactics and strategy.=20

China's military digest, the Beijing Junshi Wenzhai, said the Chinese =
went home loaded with valuable information about how the U.S. would =
engage the PLA in the event of a war.=20

The digest reported that Chinese military officials visited the U.S. =
Owensburg National Training Center in August 1985 and observed "the =
sharp exchanges between the troops and a simulated opposition force. ... =


"After the Chinese group of representatives returned home to China, they =
made a special report to the Central Military Commission," the digest =
added. "In March of the next year, based on authorization from the CMC, =
the Nanjing Military Region [in southern China, responsible for the =
Taiwan Strait] formally organized a combined tactics training center. At =
this point, China then had its first 'Blue Army' base."=20

At a secret base in China's eastern Anhui province, "Training is held =
strictly in accordance with the commands and orders used in foreign =
armies and their training formats, with even the mess hall using knives =
and forks [similar to those in the U.S.]. ... The current base =
commander, General Xiao Deqiao, intimately knows that modern warfare is =
warfare of information and mechanization. The base has been able to bear =
the tasks of scientific research and experimentation, specialized =
project consolidated training and combined tactics theory research.=20

"At the 'Blue Army' base all the troops [live by the code] "Here we face =
the battlefield of the future." They use specialized methods to =
[sharpen] each group of incoming Red Army troops into [well-honed] =
blades, whose brilliance will shine in all directions."=20

The digest reports, "In today's Chinese Army, there is a 'Blue Army' =
base specializing in simulating the war tactics of foreign militaries in =
order to compel our army in counter operations to 'Know the Enemy' and =
therefore 'Defeat the Enemy.'"=20

The publication leaves no doubt that the "enemy" is the United States, =
which generously taught China how to train its troops to fight us in a =
future war.=20
