The article discusses the efforts of Chinese communist leaders to militarize its people. Under the slogan "Everyone a Soldier," China is militarizing its people by enrolling them in the militia. The massive military training has exceeded the Western concept of a nation in arms. The Chinese Communist Party is known to be a militant organization. It came to power primarily by military operations. Even its peacetime projects are described in military terms. China's armed forces, supported by its military reserves, are considered threat to its non-communist neighbors.
