The following is based on a translation of a report in Chinese media:

A report in mil.huanqiu.com titled”Yongshu Reef (Fiery Cross Reef) will be China’s foothold in Nansha (Spratly) for counterblow at US, Philippine and others’ provocation” has stressed the Chinese government‘s commitment to the military use of an artificial island in the South China Sea at Fiery Cross Reef.

The Chinese on the stone tablet in the first photo reads “Nansha (Spratly) is our country’s sacred territory that allows no infringement.”

That in the second reads “Yongshu Reef (Fiery Cross Reef)”

The third reads “Nansha Islands of the People’s Republic of China,” “Yongshu Reef” and “Tablet established by Hainan provincial people’s government in May 2000”

The report says that, according to foreign media based on the measuring of satellite photo, the island must have an area of 8 square kilometres.

The report also says that as foreign media tends to exaggerate, it cannot determine whether the figure is reliable.

The report says the new artificial island is much smaller than the one completed on June 14. China has not published the size of the new island.

The report continues that China is capable of finishing the land reclamation project before Washington is able to organise diplomatic and military pressure to stop the project.

The rhythm is nearly “perfect”. It is much better than carrying on the operation while being subjected to US air and sea provocations.

The report talks much about China’s peaceful intention and desire to resolve the maritime territory disputes peacefully for mutual benefits.

It says, “the islands built on the reefs are not to be used as military outposts in the South China Sea.”

The report concludes that, with such large islands, China will have military superiority whenever it is necessary for it to militarise the islands.

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.
