Exposed: How China is Removing the ‘Rot’ From Its Military | The National Interest Blog

Just when China’s present crop of military leaders were attending a performance of  “Building the Great War with Flesh and Blood” to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the People’s Anti-Japanese War and the War Against Fascism organized by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), a real drama within the Chinese military was unfolding for its former top soldier.

On July 30, rumors that Guo Boxiong, a former vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) – China’s highest military decisionmaking body – had been implicated in the anti-graft dragnet were finally confirmed. Following a decision by the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) Politburo, it was announced that Guo had been expelled from the party and his case was transferred to prosecutors within the military.
