Xi’s First Tweet

1 01 2016

How Interesting!  The Chinese President who is leading a charge to censor and control the Internet has nevertheless decided to send his first tweet-like message on China’s Weibo.   Wearing a modern Mao suit he sent his tweet to military leaders.  Both the dress and the venue sends a larger message to the world that isn’t on his tweet list and doesn’t read Chinese.

Expect even more emphasis from the new China on building up the military and standing up to U.S. imperial designs not only with the Asia Pacific “pivot” but also in the Middle Est and beyond.
