The Baoji Municipal Committee, a CCP authority in the province of Shaanxi, shared the five-minute video, originally posted on the Chinese video sharing platform, Xigua. The narrator calls for the use of weapons of mass destruction to be used against Japan to make them surrender “for a second time”.

Although the original video was removed (after gaining more than two million views), human rights activist Jennifer Zeng, uploaded the video to Twitter with English subtitles.

The video says: “When we liberate Taiwan, if Japan dares to intervene by force, even if it only deploys one soldier, one plane and one ship, we will not only return reciprocal fire but also start a full-scale war against Japan.

“We will use nuclear bombs first.

“We will use nuclear bombs continuously until Japan declares unconditional surrender for the second time.

“What we want to target is Japan’s ability to endure a war. As long as Japan realizes that it cannot afford to pay the price of war it will not dare to rashly send troops to the Taiwan strait.”

In 1964, China declared its ‘No first use’ (NFU) policy – promising not to use nuclear weapons as a means of warfare unless first attacked by another adversary using nuclear weapons.

The NFU policy also prohibits China from dropping weapons of mass destruction on countries not equipped with nuclear weapons.

By contrast, NATO has rejected calls to adopt an NFU policy under the argument that a ’pre-emptive nuclear strike’ is a key option.

Japan does not own any nuclear weapons of its own but supports the potential use of US nuclear weapons on its behalf.

The video continues to put forward what it calls the “Japan exception theory” which would scrap China’s NFU policy and make Japan the ‘exception’ to the rule.

The video states that since the signing of the NFU, the international situation has changed dramatically.

It states: “Our country is in the midst of a major change that has not been seen in a century and all political policies, tactics and strategies must be adjusted and changed in order to protect the peaceful rise of our country.

“If Japan goes to war with China for a third time, the Chinese people will take revenge on the old and new scores.

“Japan is the only country in the world that has been hit by atomic bombs and has a deep memory of the atomic bombs from the government down to the people.

“It is exactly because Japan has such a unique feeling that nuclear deterrence against Japan will get twice the result with half the effort.”

The video concludes by pledging to punish Japan Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, former Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, and Deputy Prime Minister Aso Taro – and to retake the Diaoyu and Ryukyu islands.

The CCP authority repost comes just weeks after Chinese president Xi Jinping warned foreign nations will “get their heads bashed bloody” if they attempt to interfere with China.
