There Are A Few Problems With China's Plan To Fight Military Corruption

In an effort to fight massive corruption from rotting the Chinese military, Beijing wants a mandatory audit prior to any promotions of regimental officers and higher, reports the Times of India.
The efforts would be comprehensive, with President Xi Jinping reportedly said he would take on the "tigers" as well as the smaller "flies."

But from the start, there are obvious problems. From Times of India:

Roderic Broadhurst, a professor of criminology at Australian National University who studies corruption in China, said he was skeptical about the plan, particularly if the audits were not made public.

"The absence of transparency will be a major limitation, as it is in all other aspects of oversight of guardians," he said.

The term is "guardians" because the duty of the Chinese military is not to protect the people, but rather maintain the Communist party's grip on power (a major difference from western armies).

Despite the obvious conflict of interest involved in auditing the arm charged with keeping you in power, there's also the hypocrisy of Communist Party officials calling the military corrupt.

Reports out today about something called "gray money" paint a staggering picture of income inequality between the common worker and the party elite.

Gray money is undeclared income, and in a country with little regulation like China, there's a bunch of it.

From Quartz:

CSER researcher Wang Xiaolu, writing in Caixin magazine, said gray income reached 6.2 trillion renminbi (about $1 trillion) in 2011, or about 12% of GDP, based on a survey of 5,344 families in urban areas that was completed in 2012.

It remains to be seen if the Chinese government is serious about its crackdown on military corruption. Beijing has started many of these crackdowns in the past, only to come up short.

As if to exemplify income inequality, in 2011, the same year as the study on gray money, a Chinese citizen parked a gold-plated Infinite G37 in a no-parking zone and left it to get towed. And just days ago, a red-gold Ferrari was spotted in Beijing.

Expensive cars have been a bane to Chinese officials in recent years. Last year the high-visibility death of a rising star's son in a Ferrari crash caused a very public shaming, and an even more public demotion.

Military officers have acknowledged the corruption problem on their side of the aisle though.

Gen. Liu Yuan who runs the logistics arm is a "princeling" with "privileged informal networks across military ranks and the civilian side of the party-state," writes John Garnaut of Foreign Policy.

Liu said in a recent speech, "Only our own corruption can destroy us and cause our armed forces to be defeated without fighting."

Powerful words of criticism in public are rare in China.

So the reason for Broadhurst's skepticism is obvious: How likely is a general like Liu to allow his military to undergo audits from the likes of "gray money" government officials?

Yes, indeed, the Peoples' Liquidation Army is there to attack and enslave the Chinese people, and NOT to defend China as a normal army in a normal country does!

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Seeing as how there is not a single hionest individual in the CCP or PLA, perhaps the International Court of Justice shoul;d handle prosecutions of China's scum dictators?

Yes, the Chinese Communist Party tries to blame the Chinese people and Chinese culture for its own obvious and endemic corruption. It also claims that its mass-murders of its own people are necessary to create a climate of political terror in China, which is apparently unique among nations in needing mass-murder as a feature of "politics"

So what else is new.
