VJ Day Anniversary In China 2015

Posted September 3rd, 2015 by Iron Mike

For the Chinese, WWII lasted 8 long years – only to be followed by the continuation of the Red Rebellion – until 1949…   Today they held a parade…   Chinese citizens in Beijing were forbidden to watch.China's goose-stepping ladies
Note the troop units break into goose-stepping when passing the reviewing stand. Video below the fold…

Chinese VJ Day

Folks, as you watch this parade of military might – only about 2 division’s worth – a small amount of China’s huge military….remember that YOU PAID for this – with every Happy Meal and every ‘Made in China’ item you ever bought.

NOTE:  Wed 14 Sept 2016   This is a replacement video.  Often when we post a video,  the youtube account gets closed after some time.

Chinese taxpayers didn’t have to pay for this – because YOU DID!

China doesn’t need their huge military – nobody is planning on attacking them.

Part of it is kept for control of their civilian population,… 

– part as a hedge against massive unemployment in their young adult population, 

– and part is a screening process to weed out anybody who might have troublesome tendencies.

Now they’ve begun building a large, modern, blue-water navy. Take heed!

And note that their good friend Obama wasn’t invited,…so he went to Alaska to rename a mountain,…and take selfies….

    VERY IMPRESSIVE, BUT SEEN MANY TIMES IN HISTORY, WHEN A COUNTRY FAILS IT RESORTS TO ITS MILITARY, TO INVADE ITS NEIGHBORS AND STEAL THEIR STUFF. IT HAS BEEN DONE FROM THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND.

    Very reminiscent of the Victory Day parades in Moscow’s Red Square. It trumpets military might but does nothing to address the inherent problems of the country.

    I have been to Power Plants throughout China, the soldiers who guard these plants are dressed poorly, have 40 year old “Grease Guns” and are not trained well.

    Chinese have celebrations for the people and take weeks from work,it is likely the soldiers in this photo were actors.

    The last parade I was at was in Hongzhou, the soldiers were carrying plastic molded weapons.

    I always buy American if possible. Unfortunately, in too many instances there is no “Made in U.S.A.” option, you can only find items made in China.

    The first online petition I ever signed was part of an attempt to stop Clinton from giving Most Favored Nation trading status to China. The only two senators to vote against this were the two NH senators Warren Rudman and Bob Smith. How far we’ve fallen since then.
