Having Fun At Vietnam’s Expense

Tim Johnson writes in his China Rises blog:

The Morning Post (which is behind a pay wall) said the “occupation plans” appear to be unofficial. Yet censors do not seem to be leaping for the “delete” button. Curious.

The supposed plans detail a 31-day invasion, starting with five days of missile strikes from land, sea and air and climaxing in an invasion involving 310,000 troops sweeping into Vietnam from Yunnan , Guangxi and the South China Sea. The electronic jamming of Vietnamese command and communications centres is mentioned, along with the blocking of sea lanes in the South China Sea.

“Vietnam … is a major threat to the safety of Chinese territories, and the biggest obstacle to the peaceful emergence of China,” the plans posted on Sina.com and at least three other websites say.
