    Chinafs most powerful military leader, in an unusual public statement, last week ordered military forces to prepare for combat, as Chinese warships deployed to waters near disputed islands and anti-Japan protests throughout the country turned violent. Gen. Xu Caihou, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, considered the most senior military political commissar, said Friday that military forces should be gprepared for any possible military combat,h state run Xinhua news agency reported.

    Jin Baisong from the Chinese Academy of International Trade – a branch of the commerce ministry – said China should use its power as Japanfs biggest creditor with $230bn (’141bn) of bonds to gimpose sanctions on Japan in the most effective mannerh and bring Tokyofs festering fiscal crisis to a head.

    Writing in the Communist Party newspaper China Daily, Mr Jin called on China to invoke the gsecurity exceptionh rule under the World Trade Organisation to punish Japan, rejecting arguments that a trade war between the two Pacific giants would be mutually destructive.

    Separately, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported that China is drawing up plans to cut off Japanfs supplies of rare earth metals needed for hi-tech industry.

    The warnings came as anti-Japanese protests spread to 85 cities across China, forcing Japanese companies to shutter factories and suspend operations.

    My guess is its a case of saber rattling, although it is undoubtedly a step up in rhetoric compared to the past. China is facing internal political issues with the stalling global economy so it could simply be a ploy to misdirect the Chinese publics attention to the Japanese.
