Since the first sweeping structural reform of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in 1985, the military media have periodically floated trial balloons about deeper restructuring, but the political realities of the situation have consistently stymied the proposed changes. In early 2014, the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun reported that the PLA was planning to make the most significant modifications to its command and control structure in almost 30 years, replacing its administrative, geographically oriented military region system with a mission-oriented configuration designed to match the increasing “joint” orientation of its deployed forces. To the surprise of many, official Chinese media organs did not reject the report out of hand, but instead expressed dismay that the information had been disseminated prematurely, and grudgingly acknowledged plans to carry out the changes.

News Translation Taiwan Voice 2014/03/26 (Facebook) Press Conference with Lin Fei-fan and Chen Wei-ting It is often overheard that the student protesters (coming from the top universities in Taiwan) outmatch the Ma administration intellectually, but yet they are still portrayed as troublemakers. Here is a transcript of a press conference with two of the student leaders following the mayhem at the Executive Yuan that shows these students are thoughtful, smart, and resolute. Press Conference with Lin Fei-fan and Chen Wei-ting at 9:30 after President Ma’s press conference held on the morning of March 24 Lin Fei-Fan: Of course, members of the the student movement group are bound to hold different opinions.

Claims Joe about Ma Ying-jeou's bloody crackdown: "The force used to expel the Black Island Nation Youth Front mob wasn't violent at all." [Emphasis added] Refutation comes from the equivalent of a thousand words: (Image from 4am.tw)
