Xi Jinping’s remarks on the military have become conspicuous. On Xi’s orders, the entire military was instructed to make ‘preparations for war’ in January of this year. During last December’s military inspection, Xi laid the pretext for war when he said that the purpose of a strong military is to engage in triumphant battles.
Last November in a speech delivered in Beijing, Xi described his nationalistic ambitions in the following way, “More than 170 years of all-out effort since the Opium War has revealed a bright future that will witness a great revival for the Chinese people.” Taken at face value, China watchers can interpret his remarks as a wish to see the return of the Okinawan and Korean territories and so on, which China held during the Qing Dynasty.
Is Xi Jinping an Ambitious or a Weak Leader?
On the other hand, at a round-table discussion attended by foreign experts in December, Xi emphasized that China has never advocated the idea of a hegemony and would not be implementing any kind of outward expansionist policies. What on earth are Xi Jinping’s true intentions?
People’s opinions are polarized as to how to view Xi Jinping.
One belief is that Xi is a man with an ambitious lust for outward expansionism, and he has already laid his hopes bare. Another sentiment is that Xi is weak leader, the type of person who shows people what they want to see, and that he was chosen as a result of ‘factional power politics’.
Various countries are still embroiled in disputes with regard to the question of how to perceive Hitler, the man who controlled over half of Europe during the Second World War. Hitler broached this subject in his book ‘Mein Kampf’.
He insisted that the Germans from Austria should return to their great German motherland, that a new territory in the East should be prepared for the Slavs to live in, so as to ensure the survival of the Germanic race, and that Germany would either rule the world or be wiped off the face of the planet.
Hitler openly discussed his dream of eastwardly expanding German territory, his desire for revenge against France, and his hopes for a war with Russia.
Hitler Realized the Ambitions That He Reported in His Book ‘Mein Kampf’
With the birth of the Nazi regime in 1933, Hitler announced a program of rearmament. He commenced production of combat aircrafts, submarines, and so on, which were military assets that the terms of the Treaty of Versailles banned. Britain, among others, took the initiative in embarking upon a conciliatory foreign policy in order to deter further German rearmament.
Hitler’s army then occupied the demilitarized zone of the Rhine region in 1936, and he annexed Austria in 1938. Afterwards, Hitler made clear that he would not invade any other country, but then threatened Czechoslovakia in order to force it to cede the Sudetenland, home to many Germans, back to Germany. Using Germany’s military might, he overthrew the whole of Czechoslovakia in 1939. Next, in 1940, Hitler pushed forward with an occupation of Paris, France, air raids over t
he British mainland, and an invasion of Russia.
Almost all of the ambitions he described in ‘Mein Kampf’ became true.
Churchill Criticized Hitler for Acting Like ‘Genghis Khan, the Ultimate Invader’
After British statesman Churchill read ‘Mein Kampf’, he became one of the only people determined ‘to fight Hitler to the bitter end and to defeat him’.
When Hitler became Chancellor, Churchill gave a speech in which he declared that the Jews and Slavs would be annihilated, and that the madman, whose wish was for German territory to extend from the North Sea to the Urals, had come to power. When Germany annexed Austria, the Cabinet of the British Prime Minister Chamberlain, just as any contemporary government would have done, declared that it was ‘sincerely regrettable’, but Churchill severely criticized Hitler. He said that Hitler was a demon that had crawled of an abyss, and that he was the reincarnation of Genghis Khan, the ultimate invader.
In September 1939 when Britain and France ultimately declared war against Germany, Churchill was at last a central figure within the British government as both the Naval Minister and Prime Minister. America subsequently participated in the war against Germany, and those forces attained an upset victory after being on the brink of annihilation.
Hitler Could Have Been Stopped Much Sooner
There was a way to stop Hitler earlier.
- Hitler feared Anglo-French military intervention. During his occupation of the Rhine region, he gave instructions to his army to retreat in the event that the Anglo-French army mobilized. It is important to show the determination to fight both through diplomatic and military channels.
- After the First World War, excessively clamouring for peace, Hitler’s duplicitous promises not to expand his territories continued to deceive Britain and France. The content of ‘Mein Kampf’ was not taken seriously and his book was regarded as ‘absurd’.
- Any leader who acknowledged that Hitler’s behavior was in line with what he wrote in ‘Mein Kampf’ should have strengthened national defense as a matter of urgency, but no politician had the courage to insist on it and make fortifications a reality.
‘Mein Kampf’ was a book that described the ‘true intentions’ of Hitler, written for his ardent supporters while he was in in prison, after he failed in a violent attempt to overthrow the government. Now Xi Jinping’s true intentions (related to his subconscious desires) have been revealed by Master Okawa and published in his book China’s Hidden Agenda and ‘The Key Player in 2012: Xi Jinping’s Secret Ambitions? (Web only).
In those works, Master Okawa made Xi’s ambitions known, “Realizing its most longed-for wish to annex Taiwan at the same time as taking control of Japan, China will build its ‘Great Chinese Empire’ by incorporating South East Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and a part of North America within its sphere of influence. Then it will be naturally clear that he is the ‘reincarnation of Genghis Khan’”.
Just as with Europe during the Second World War, the reaction to Master Okawa’s book and the course of action implemented will decide whether this ‘second Hitler’ will be left to his own devices or whether Xi will be defeated.
