“No Force Can Shake Us”: Xi Says As Hypersonic Nuclear Missiles Unveiled At China’s Largest Ever Military Parade

"Patriotic passion" and "tears of joy" filled Beijing streets, writes Reuters, as China’s National Day military parade extravaganza wound up on Tuesday.

Though state media pundits have sought to assure the West it's not at all about "flexing muscles, but showing military transparency," it remains that citizens were handpicked by the government to merely stand on the sides of streets to watch phalanxes of tanks, armored vehicles, and the country's newest high-tech aircraft roll by.

"Organizers last month said 30,000 Beijing residents were selected to view the parade itself."

Among them, the DF-17 ballistic missiles, which is touted as capable of circumventing US defense systems, also believed capable of striking the continental US within 30 minutes.

The DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile is believed to have the longest range in the world and is Beijing's newest hypersonic nuclear-capable missile.

In his ceremonial remarks, President Xi Jinping confidently called for “complete unification” of the country and that nothing can stop the march of “socialist China's” progress.

“Today, a socialist China is standing in the east of the world and there is no force that can shake the foundation of this great nation,” Xi told a crowd of as international reports noted carefully vetted guests. “No force can stop the Chinese people and the Chinese nation from forging ahead.”

Another new weapon featured included the submarine launchable JL-2 missile, which can provide "sea-based nuclear deterrence," and a new generation anti-ship missile called YJ-18, according to state television CGTN.

Additionally, there were new HQ-9B surface-to-air missiles "capable of intercepting multiple air strike weapons in a complex electro-magnetic environment" on display.

It was also an opportunity for the PRC to celebrate its gender equality and "diversity" within the military ranks, apparently:

Regional media called it the biggest military parade in the nation's history. 

“The People’s Liberation Army [PLA] will serve its purpose in safeguarding the sovereignty, security and development interests of the country, and world peace,” he said, at a time when Beijing has expanded its military footprint globally, including with its first overseas military base in Djibouti.

Xi called on the Communist Party and the country to unite and continue to fight for the realization of what he called the “Chinese dream” – the nation’s rejuvenation— SCMP

Xi further addressed the now months-long unrest and soaring tensions in Hong Kong, vowing that the central government uphold “one country, two systems”.

Beijing would ensure the long-term stability of the semi-autonomous city, and additionally underscored the goal of “peaceful reunification” with self-ruling Taiwan, China's president reassured.

Meanwhile, on the streets of Hong Kong…

State media pundits took swipes at the nearby unrest and its "beautiful sight of democracy," which included for the first time a baton wielding protester being shot at point-blank range by a police officer.

At least one mainland state media editor, perhaps overly giddy from the day's celebrations, used the occasion to unleash a barrage of sarcasm and veiled threats on the world. 

State media was also lockstep on China’s National Day in signalling HK citizens: "We need more than ever the solidarity of all Hong Kong people to work towards the same goal, seek common ground and accommodate differences," one source quoted a Beijing official as saying.
