China: Security tight at Tiananmen Square as if confronted with formidable enemy

Tiananmen Square Security 2013Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) says in one report, “On this the 24th anniversary of the Tiananmen incident, a flag-hoisting ceremony was held at Tiananmen Square as usual.”

“Since yesterday evening, security has been upgraded at many scenic spots in Beijing. The air is heavy at Muxidi, where troops entered the city that year. It is heavily guarded. Lots of uniformed police and plainclothes officers are patrolling the streets. Fire extinguishers are placed by the side of roads, which are filled with police patrol cars and cars of the police task force. The cars occupied all the parking spaces.”

In its report on a Hong Kong reporter being detained, RTHK says, “People who enter Tiananmen Square have to pass security checks.”

“When a Hong Kong reporter stationed in Beijing got out of his car, immediately a large number of policemen rushed towards him to intercept him and check his papers. Meanwhile, they opened his car and took away his key. At the same time, policemen came to reinforce from every direction. Some of them yelled, “Catch the reporter.”

Note: It was only one reporter! Why all the panic?

“The policemen searched the equipment on the car and took the reporter’s home visit permit for verification. One policeman of Tiananmen Police Station said that it was merely a routine check not directed at any of the reporter’s activities.

“A staff member of the Exit and Entry Control Office came to check the reporter’s identity once more, saying that they administer reporters jointly with the China Journalists Association.

“The reporter was detained for investigation for one hour. When he left, the police told him that it had been made clear to everyone, and everyone must know what to do.”

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
