China ready for WAR with airstrikes and troops OPENING FIRE close to North Korea from World Breaking News By Arcot R.V. Manivannan's blog

CHINA unleashed a barrage for military firepower close to North Korea’s border over the weekend in a brazen show of force aimed at intimidating Kim Jong-un.

In excruciatingly cold conditions, Chinese troops took part in a mock battle between opposing army units, read and blue.

Practice airstrikes, aerial reconnaissance and electromagnetic interference were among other drills conducted by the PLA in temperatures as low as -17C.

An army unit responsible for border security carried out the drill on the Zhurihe military base – a remote training ground near the North Korea border.

The PLA's largest and most advanced training base, Zhurihe was set up to provide realistic battle conditions for Chinese soldiers to enhance their combat skills.

In August this year, Chinese president Xi Jinping stood over 12,000 troops, tanks, long-range missile launchers, jet fighters and other impressive weaponry at the military base.

The highly provocative drills come just days after China closed off its main route with North Korea amid ongoing tensions.

Beijing is furious with Pyongyang for repeatedly testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in defiance of international condemnation.
