PLA: Music to kill by

PLA Emblem   (Public Domain)
Apparently, Chinese military recruits ain’t what they used to be.  Especially when it comes to killing.

In order to heighten the murderous urges of recruits “raised on pop tunes and video games,” China developed a video just for them.  It “features a rap-rock soundtrack with lyrics such as ‘just waiting for the order to kill, kill, kill…’”

Catchy.  Unless you’re on the receiving end.

While ears are being assaulted with droning noise, eyes are being hit with images of “fighter jets” and “special forces troops.”  This brainwashing is designed to turn even would-be Quakers into killing machines.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is not just trying to combat enemies, but is also trying to overcome its own inertia.  Having garnered a reputation for being corrupt and lax, the PLA now wishes to up the ante.
