Excessive masturbation is hurting China’s military

The Chinese military says excessive masturbation and too many video games are among the reasons its physical-test failure rates have reached an “alarming high.”
The People’s Liberation Army is now dishing out advice after one city saw more than half its candidates — 56.9 percent — fail their physicals, according to the BBC.
PLA found that 8 percent of candidates failed because of abnormalities found in their scrotum from sitting too much. Another 25 percent flunked because of blood and urine tests.
It recommended that candidates follow 10 basic principles, including exercising more, cutting out fizzy drinks and booze, limiting computer games and masturbation, not getting a tattoo and drinking clean water.
The advice was instantly mocked by users on social media microblog Sina Weibo.
“Next year they’ll be asking for circumcisions!” said one user.
The PLA has struggled to recruit new members, despite desperate measures to find candidates like releasing a rap recruitment video last year.
The Ministry of Defense last month announced the PLA would be cut from 2 million to 1 million — a move that some believe is due to a lack of new recruits.
Masturbation is what chinese army is best at....

Is there a set date for the induction of J20 fighter? Also, have the engines aboard the Z-10 been replaced by more powerful ones?
1. the first J-20 batch(4 sets) was handed over to PLAAF test unit in late 2016
2. on Mar 9th 2017, the national TV station-CCTV news officially confirmed the introduction of J-20 to PLAAF
3. on Feb 9th 2018, the PLAAF spokesman confirmed the combat unit was receiving the J-20.
another CCTV news clip few weeks ago....Z-10's field training on 4000m plateau. the army aviation units of this region/theater was the last units getting their Z-10s..the WZ-9 serial engine is in the Evolution to power lifting.
Are they thinking about exporting it?
If Z-10 has new engines, then that means they can carry their intended payload of 16 atgm( is that right?). Though, I don't understand why Pakistan did not went for Z10 and instead selected atak heptors.
1. J-20 will be PLAAF exclusive for quite long period.
2. for a 5.5-6 ton class gunship, 8 missiles+ 7*2(and 19*2 is more often observed)rocket should be ideal payload. the benifits of more engine power is assigned to pilot protection which was given Low priority before
and possible mounted MMW radar
Pakistan's choice should be reasonable...and the feedback and battle experience in that years' evaluation in Pakistan is of great value for the R&D team...and this choice is also a great finace relief for both sides.
I have noticed that all of the fighters developed for PLAAF after the 80s have never gone anywhere but China. I wonder why that is.
Cuz original designers like Russia and Israel don't allow China to sell their IPs and make money from exports.

MOSCOW – In a first such event, military personnel from India and Pakistan are participating in an anti-terrorism exercise organised by the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Russia.
The six-day SCO drills, which have brought the two countries together for the Exercise Peaceful Mission 2018, will continue till August 29 at Chebarkul town in Chelyabinsk Oblast in Russia.
The exercise is aimed at enhancing cooperation between member states to deal with the growing threat of terrorism and extremism.
Around 3,000 soldiers from India, Pakistan, China, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan are taking part in the exercise.
The Pakistan contingent comprises 110 members, while the strength of the Chinese contingent is of 748 personnel.
The 200-member strong Indian contingent has 167 Indian Army personnel including four women officers and 33 personnel from the Indian Air Force.
The opening ceremony of the peace mission exercise was conducted at the Combined Arms Range at Chebarkul. It started with a speech by Central Military District Commander Col Gen Alexander Lapin, the Exercise Chief, who exhorted the participating troops to execute all tasks allotted to them in a professional manner.
The meet was declared open with the hoisting of national flags of all member nations, accompanied by respective national anthems. Contingent commanders also addressed the gathering followed by an impressive march past.
The SCO Peace Mission Exercise takes place every two years.
The Peace Mission 2018 also created history when for the first time as four major military powers of the region – China, Russia, India and Pakistan – are participating in the same military drill.
In previous editions, only Central Asian nations participated.
Pakistan and India were given the status of full members of SOC in 2017.
With India and Pakistan joining the exercise, SCO’s counter-terrorism mission has expanded to South Asia, a region in a grip of terrorism and extremism.
