Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, widely tipped as his country's next leader, on Monday called the Korean War "a great and just war for safeguarding peace and resisting aggression." Xi was speaking in a meeting with veterans of the Chinese People's Volunteers to commemorate the 60th anniversary of China's entry into the war.
There is some indication that Xi is the hardliner of hardliners. He has belittled Japan and possibly pushed the recent naval incident with Japan. Now he pissed Koreans off. If he keeps doing this, then eventually he will lead PRC toward regional conflict with almost every neighbors.
