外文标题：Chinese paper warns PLA of training lapses
BEIJING: The Chinese government has put additional pressure on the country's military by publicly denouncing its training practices. The military training poses a threat to the country's ability to fight and win a war, the official People's Liberation Army Daily said.
It identified "peace disease" as one of the biggest challenges because the country's president wants the military to prepare itself to win wars.
The government, which regularly addresses the uniformed force through the PLA Daily, has recently announced a series of anti-corruption and disciplinary measures aimed at military officers. President Xi Jinping gave a dressing down to military officers soon after his return from a visit to India. He asked them to enhance communication within the command structure, and strictly respect the authority of the Communist Party of China.
The country's military authority has identified 40 weaknesses in current training methods, the paper said in a front-page story quoting PLA general staff headquarters. "If the problems are not rectified, the PLA's ability to fight and win will be hindered for sure," said the headquarters. "The list will help the army focus on its weaknesses and force them to learn how to fight."
The military newspaper said China needed to find a cure for the "peace disease" affecting its training regime to ensure the armed forces could master the ability to win a real conflict. "These problems reflect shortcomings and weak points in the make-up of our military fighting force," the paper said.
The weaknesses include personal problems of soldiers, current methods and standards of military training on land, sky and sea besides issues of work style in the army. "The issues were singled out based on assessment of troop performance in routine exercises or joint drills with foreign armies," the paper said.

.. Many people in China are pro-democracy. Once democracy comes in China, such Expansionism ideas will die. India should also concentrate on spreading democratic values apart from being prepared with defense forces.

..............China has clear Expansionist designs to achieve against all neighboring countries. We should keep up our preparations at the LOC on war footing as China is likely to wage another war against India as per its choice of timing.................
