In an editorial for the state-run People’s Daily, Chinese PLA Professor Han Xudong warns that Beijing should prepare itself for a third world war which could arise out of the conflict between the United States and Russia over Ukraine.

“As the Ukrainian crisis deepens, international observers have become more and more concerned about a direct military clash between the US and Russia. Once an armed rivalry erupts, it is likely to extend to the globe. And it is not impossible that a world war could break out,” writes Xudong, noting that “the world has entered an era of new forms of global war” based around the Internet and the concept of sea power.

The professor goes on to predict, “It’s likely that there will be a third world war to fight for sea rights,” and that in order for China to be ready for this new conflict, Beijing needs to, “develop its military power based on a global war” so as to guard against becoming a passive victim of events.

Noting that “China’s overseas interests have been increasingly threatened by the US,” Xudong warns that Beijing, “must bear a third world war in mind when developing military forces, especially the sea and air forces.”

Xudong’s comments take on further significance given reports last week that Beijing recently moved 12,000 troops to the border with Russia

Economist Martin Armstrong notes that Xudong’s are also aimed at Japan. “The sentiment in China for war against Japan is rising in popularity. Keep in mind that China does not confront NATO as does Russia. The prospects that we will see a conflict in Asia are rising rapidly,” he writes.
