NEXT CHINESE LEADER WILL STOP ``APPEASING`` THE US
Uh oh. And he takes power within 2 years.

Heir apparent showing his stripes
By Willy Lam

Vice President Xi Jinping's brief visit to the western-China metropolis of Chongqing this month has given important clues about the "crown prince's" political orientations and his relations with key Chinese Communist Party (CCP) factions.

After his induction into the Central Military Commission (CMC) last October, there is little doubt that the 55-year-old Politburo Standing Committee (PBSC) member will succeed Hu Jintao as party general secretary at the 18th Party Congress slated for late 2012.

According to long-standing tradition, however, Xi has largely kept his beliefs to himself so as not to be seen as upstaging his superiors. During his "Chongqing tour", however, Xi dropped strong hints about his deeply held ideology and aspirations. Equally significantly, Xi's bonding with politburo member and Chongqing party secretary Bo Xilai shows that the vice president may be putting together his own team in the run-up to taking over the helm in less than two years' time. Seeds of conflict between Hu and Xi, respectively the "core" of the CCP's fourth- and fifth-generation leadership, might also have been sown.

Since Bo became party chief of China's most populous city in late 2007, the flamboyant former minister of commerce has made headlines with his no-holds-barred advocacy of Maoist norms. In his speeches, the charismatic Bo has profusely cited Mao Zedong-era slogans such as "plain living and hard struggle" and "human beings need to have [a revolutionary] spirit".

He has resuscitated Cultural Revolution-vintage revolutionary operas. Bo, who is the 61-year-old son of conservative party elder Bo Yibo, even asks his secretaries to regularly text-message Mao quotations to the city's students.

On the economic front, the high-profile "princeling" has made waves with his attempts to go after "red GDP", a reference to economic construction that exemplifies Maoist egalitarianism. Chongqing has emerged as a national pacesetter in social-welfare policies such as providing subsidized public housing to the city's masses.

Best article I have read on the upcoming struggle for determining which direction China goes.

In reading it I am reminded of the concept of Ying and Yang ... where first you go in one direction and then you go in another direction. China's direction of the last 25 years may be about to change when the new leadership comes to the fore.
