China's 'broken heads' comment triggers World War 3 fear
Beijing, July 3: World War 3 fear has been ignited after China promised "broken heads" for their enemies, perceived as a sign of threat by Beijing to the West.
Speaking at a mass gathering to mark the centenary of the ruling Communist Party, President Xi Jinping warned that those who try to bully China will face "broken heads and bloodshed in front of the iron Great Wall of the 1.4 billion Chinese people", reports Express.
He continued: "The Chinese people are a people with a strong sense of pride and self-confidence."
"We have never bullied, oppressed or enslaved the people of another nation, not in the past, during the present or in the future," he said.
He also said the Chinese people will "absolutely not allow any foreign force to bully, oppress or enslave" them.
The Communist nation leader was quoted as saying by Express: "The people of China are not only good at destroying the old world, they have also created a new world."
Tang Renwu, a professor of public management at Beijing Normal University, told Express the speech was in response to the US and Western efforts to "contain" and "suppress" China.
He said: "Xi's stronger-than-usual response would have the effect of invoking even more patriotic and nationalistic sentiment among the Chinese people."
