Liu’s China Dream That Xi Shares
“The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation must go hand in hand with a rich and powerful army. In order to achieve this goal, China must dare to strengthen its military force, not just its economy.” You might be forgiven for attributing this quote to China’s President Xi Jinping, who has made the China Dream the refrain of his tenure in office. But you would be mistaken. The quote comes from the book China Dream by Liu Mingfu, a retired PLA colonel.
