“apparent large-scale exercise”

The propaganda machine is at full throttle right now.

“a drill”

This psychological warfare campaign is intense. All China channels have hammered on the PLA border buildup.

I’m seeing this video everywhere, implying troops are currently entering the border. I can’t find the original source, but it is more likely than not misattributed, older footage. Would bet some of this is being seeded by CCP. The psywar is working.

This is another one of those videos being reattributed to spread an urgency and fear. The 1 day old time stamp isn’t moving the needle on this fake news spread
