The article reports that China recently conducted a joint military exercise with the Russians, the ostensible scenario being an attack against a terrorist base. Skeptical Russian commentators observed that these were unusually well-armed terrorists, since the exercise involved thousands of conventional troops, heavy Backfire bombers and amphibious ships. The Chinese government has acknowledged that last year there were 74,000 demonstrations, mostly protests in the countryside against official corruption. Such activities strike a frightening historical chord.
