Da News: China’s Hu urges navy to prepare for combat..
Chinese President Hu Jintao on Tuesday urged the navy to prepare for military combat, amid growing regional tensions over maritime disputes and a US campaign to assert itself as a Pacific power.
The navy should “accelerate its transformation and modernisation in a sturdy way, and make extended preparations for military combat in order to make greater contributions to safeguard national security,” he said.
Addressing the powerful Central Military Commission, Hu said: “Our work must closely encircle the main theme of national defence and military building.”
An escalation in tensions between the US and China is by no means wise at a time when China is the biggest holder of US national debt and its fastest-growing export market.
Chinese experts: Beijing is likely to ask Washington to explain its plans to base US forces in Australia.

Even today there are people who believe they should have free license to take whatever they want from whomever they can. They’re called Democrats. Yet the president, uniter of a fractured nation, the mighty slayer of infinite straw men, claims that some Americans “rightly” suppose that the…
