Troops, tanks, trucks, artillery, and armored personnel carriers of China's military were seen heading to the Vietnamese border on May 16 and 17, according to photographs taken by by residents near the border.

Chinese netizens have been posting photographs of the large movement of the People's Liberation Army, many of them showing Chinese troops in full combat gear heading to the local train station in Chongzuo, along with military vehicles.

One netizen said the Chinese military was taking the train from the Chongzuo station to Pingxiang City, which shares a 60-mile border with Vietnam. The netizen said that the Huu Nghi Border Gate to Vietnam is also now closed.

One of the photos, taken from inside a passenger train, shows the Chinese military preparing artillery for transport on a train track. Others show Chinese troops and military vehicles traveling along dirt roads.

Vietnam is a Russian ally, so it would be interesting to see if China does anything, how Putin would respond.

Looks like China is about to pull a Putin on Vietnam.

That’ll be a long one if they do.

Why would the Chinese launch on the Viet Nam border? Viet Nam is ALREADY part of the hegemony.

Not like they needed to compel the Vietnamese to agree to trade terms or port facilities.

China and Viet Nam have about two thousand years of bad blood between them.

Some say that the Communist Obamanation is already hostile - - - - .

Okay, more people say that than just the family of Nevada cattle rancher Clive Bundy.

Probably a response to Vietnamese opposition to Chinese businesses and citizens in VietNam. Like Putin they see an opportunity to use the pretense of protecting countrymen to advance their territorial aims.
