Tanks rolling down the main street overlooking Tiananmen Square, the same route they took 30 years ago to crush democratic demonstrations
- writes the Washington Post.
Today, China’s main Western media agenda is centered around Hong Kong protests. Particular excitement caused the death of a demonstrator, who was allegedly shot dead by police. Against this background, the military power of the country shown in Beijing is perceived by the West in dark colors.
A lot of young people feel that they will not have a future because of the power of China
- quotes Politico the words of one of the residents of Hong Kong.
It is not surprising that the latest weapons models did not practically attract the attention of Western media. The only product on which journalistic material is recorded is the DF-17 ICBM.
It is capable of breaking through all existing anti-missile shields deployed by the United States and its allies.
- noted the online newspaper Politico.
You can continue to quote this kind of quotes from the Western press, but try to focus better on the weapons shown by China. Imagine a broadcast of what was presented today at a large-scale Chinese military parade - as a demonstration of the new guise of the Chinese troops.
