Leaked Audio From Chinese Military Meeting Shows Serious Tone on Preparations For Invasion of Taiwan and War with the U.S. Including Mobilizing a Joint Military-Civilian Command System
On May 14th, the People Liberation Army’s senior officers of the Guangdong Military Region of the Southern Command, high up officers in the Guangdong Province administration and the regional Chinese Communist Party committee held a meeting on preparing for an invasion of Taiwan and war with the U.S. There is a constant theme in the meeting of proposing a transition from ‘normal’ to ‘wartime.’
Those in the leaked meeting image include:
- Major General Zhou He, Commander of the Guangdong Military Region.
- Major General Huang Shan-chun, Member of the Standing Committee of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee and Political Commissar of the Provincial Military Region.
- Li Xi, Secretary of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee.
- Wang Wei-zhong, Deputy Secretary of Guangdong Provincial Party Committee and Governor of Guangdong Province.
- Zhang Hu, Member of the Standing Committee of the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee, Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee and Executive Vice Governor of the Provincial Government.
- Wang Zhi-zhong, Deputy Governor of the Guangdong Provincial Government and Secretary of the Party Committee of the Provincial Public Security Department.
Though the leaked meeting audio only mentions these three men:
- Zhang Hu, Standing Committee Member of the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, Secretary of the Political and Legal Committee.
- Zhou He, Major General, Commander of Guangdong Military Region.
- Wang Shouxin, Standing Committee Member of the Guangdong Provincial Committee and a political commissar of the Guangdong Military Region.
Normal to War transition
The meeting focused on three areas:
- Building a military-civilian joint mobilization command and control system
- Establishing wartime procedures
- Preparing for wartime command and control
Worth noting is the stockpiling of grains and what seems to be an admittance to using the latest lockdowns in major Chinese cities as cover for preparations, especially at the ports. The lockdowns could also be used as preparation for the transition to war time. You can watch the translated video next.
If you didn’t want to sit through that, here’s some important details.
At one point, a speaker talks about transforming “the experiences we gained from pandemic prevention and control in previous years into wartime social prevention and control initiatives to ensure that people’s production and life are in order, to ensure the general situation of social stability, and to create a favorable environment and conditions for the strategic victory.” They are obviously detailing the control of not only production, but the supply chain while locking down their citizens and reapplying that to a war time strategy.
Later in the meeting, shifting from economic development to “ensuring strategic victory” is detailed by saying “all levels, all regions, and all departments in the province should quickly adjust the work priority.” The fact the Chinese want this done quickly tends to leave a hint that the coming war is fast approaching. This won’t be a 2027 invasion of Taiwan like others have predicted. It will, most likely, be much sooner.
The meeting even delves into the number of military and civilian personnel, ship types and numbers, resources, buildings and other needs for the coming war.
“One, the mobilization tasks issued to our province by the eastern and southern war zones totaling 20 categories and 239 items, mainly 1,358 detachments of various types with a total of 140,000 personnel, 953 ships of various types, and 1,653 units/sets of various unmanned equipment. Other resources include 20 airports and docks, 6 repair and shipbuilding yards, 14 emergency transfer centers, and resources such as grain depots, hospitals, blood stations, oil depots, gas stations, etc.
Two, the national defense mobilization recruitment office will recruit new military service personnel, retired military personnel, and special talents totaling 15,500 people from our province.
Third, the National Defense Commission clearly stated that our province shall coordinate the implementation of the seven types of national level warfare resources, including, mainly, 64 10,000-ton roll-on/roll-off ships, 38 aircraft, 588 train cars and 19 civil facilities including airports and docks…”-Quote From May 14th Chinese Military Meeting on War Preparations
