Military Transactions for War?
Recent high-level personnel mobilization among the
North Sea and South Sea Fleets of the People’s Liberation Army, has attracted close attention from outside.
Wang Dengping, former political commissar of the North Sea
Fleet, was assigned to the same position in the South Sea Fleet;
Bai Wenqi, political commissar of the North Sea Fleet Air Force,
became political commissar of the North Sea Fleet as well.
With the South China Sea mess unsolved,
the Varyag aircraft carrier is about to go in service,
outside analysis of the high-level transaction in military terms,
could mean that Hu Jintao is ready to fight a battle before the 18th National Congress Conference.
This could be with a view to countering any threat from
surrounding countries, and to thoroughly clean out Jiang’s faction.
Wang Dengping had been interviewed in high profile during
the two sessions this year,
his so-called “never let the homeland lose in our hands",
Has become a motto of the Communist Party hawks faction.
Recently, Wang Dengping was transferred as
political commissar of the South Sea Fleet.
His above speeches were reported again by the media.
In addition, Bai Wenqi, former North Sea Fleet Air Force
Political Commissar is concurrently political commissar of the North Sea Fleet.
He is also the first officer with an aviation background
in the history of the North Sea Fleet.
Liu Yinquan, a former history professor in Shandong Province,
believes during Jiang Zemin’s ruling, he implemented a
traitorous policy, and lost a lot of land.
Now Hu Jintao formally grasps the military.
Liu thinks this high-level transaction within military,
may be preparation for a fight.
Liu Yinquan: “Wang Dengping became political commissar of
the South Sea Fleet, which shows China will take tough measures in the South Sea.
Bai Wenqi was originally in aviation, now he serves as
commander of the North Sea Fleet, indicating the CCP will be equipped with aircraft carriers.
Aircraft carriers are mainly used to carry aircraft at sea.
The CCP may try to strengthen the sea fleet power.
If so, I think (Hu) might want to have a fight."
Liu Yinquan also said that a battle before the 18th National
Congress Conference is an opportunity to shock peripheral countries.
Liu said the United States is now busy with the general election,
if (the CCP) had a fight with a small country like Vietnam which
has no alliance with the United States, the US would not participate, and it would be easy to win.
Liu Yinquan: “What are the benefits of winning?
It can threaten others. After a battle with Vietnam…
in negotiations with the Philippines and Japan,
the other party will behave and give the Spratly Islands in the South Sea to China.
If it (CCP) waits until the United States and Vietnam become
an alliance, it will be too late, This will not be good for China."
Liu Yinquan said, a war before the 18th National Congress
Conference will be very good for Hu Jintao to seek
forgiveness over his reputation and clean out Jiang ‘s faction.
Liu Yinquan: “In this battle, (Hu) could promote generals
For example, Wang Dengping recently transferred to
the South Sea Fleet.
After the generals Hu trusts made contributions,
they could enter the Central Military Commission
and consolidate the position of these generals born civilians,
he could then replace the corrupt generals of Jiang Zemin.
After army corruption is removed, it could affect local areas,
and it will be easy to solve the corruption of local officials."
Wu Fan, chief editor of Chinese Affairs magazine said
recent challenges from ASEAN meeting countries on the
South Sea, have become a great threat to the CCP.
To what extent the army will be deployed,
whether to fight or not, we will wait and see.
Wu Fan: “It seems the CCP’s military is preparing.
Transaction from the North Sea Fleet to the South Sea Fleet,
strengthening the staff of the South Sea Fleet.
On July 10, it will hold a sham naval battle in the East Sea.
The outside has given the CCP lots of pressure.”
Wang Dengping joined the army when 18. He has served
in the army for 42 years as a soldier,
the officer of the Army Political Department,
General of Political Propaganda Department,
the Secretary of General Zhou Keyu, political commissar of
the Armament Department of the Navy, and political commissar of the North Sea Fleet.
In 2002, Wang Dengping as deputy commander,
led two ships- Qingdao and Taicang,
and 500 officers and soldiers to participate in the first voyage
around the world of the Chinese Navy.
After returning, Wang Dengping was immediately promoted
to Rear Admiral. In 2011 he was promoted to Vice Admiral.
By convention, the political commissar of the North Sea Fleet

There will be a conferment ceremony annually on August 1.
