Rockdog.......I think you're the one that doesn't fully understand the Chinese system. Xi has systematically removed anyone and everyone who he suspects will not be 100% loyal to him from the 7 member CCP Politburo Standing Committee. So now they are all his loyal DOGS.......they either sink or swim with him. The problem with that type of system is that no one person has the power or incentive to try and replace an all powerful leader even if he screws up really bad. Like loyal DOGS, they will die defending their Master, no matter what happens. And that's why all you Chinese guys on the DFI are so nervous today - you know that if the "Xi Jinping train" takes one major wrong turn in the next 15 years.....then you are all royally screwed !!
