The mysterious disappearance of China’s Defense Minister, Li Shangfu, has been the subject of media speculation for weeks. This incident seems to fit into CCP’s broader pattern, as the sudden absence of high-ranking officials has become a recurring phenomenon. A case in point is that of Foreign Minister Qin Gang who despite having served only seven months in his role, was announced removal from his position following a month-long disappearance.
Amidst all the rumors, the New Federal State of China’s (NFSC) recent intelligence has confirmed that Li Shangfu has been arrested. As per exclusive sources from the NFSC, On September 15th, 1am Beijing time, Xi Jinping mobilized several thousand soldiers and dispatched close to a thousand trucks to seize Li, as well as those affiliated with him and Wei Fenghe. Over 200 PLA Rocket Force associates were arrested.
Clearly, Xi Jinping is initiating another round of political purges within the military and the Communist Party. This move manifests the PLA’s probable mutiny and the CCP’s political instability. Recently, Xi has orchestrated the formation of a new axis of evil with North Korea and Russia and has clearly signaled his intent to attack Taiwan. The PLA Rocket Force, responsible for the CCP’s arsenal of land-based ballistic and cruise missiles—both nuclear and conventional, is crucial for the potential military action against Taiwan. Since his rise to power, Xi has consistently removed or purged commanders and generals from this crucial troop, fearing that their lack of “absolute loyalty” might turn against him at any moment.
The recently deceased PLA Rocket Force commander, Wu Guo Hua, along with some others who were persecuted by the dictator Xi, were later disclosed by their families as covert supporters and whistleblowers for the New Federal State of China.
