The PLA and PAP would presumably draw on the tactics and techniques that they have developed to prevent, contain, and suppress such unrest. In addition, PLA commentators generally draw direct parallels between the experience and lessons of their MOOTW and their wartime mobilization and operations. For example, PLA officer Yang Jinkui (杨金奎) writes in the PLA Daily that the PLA should reflect on what might happen if severe weather coincided with war. 37 Other PLA analysts look at natural disaster rescue operations as a variety of joint operations.

The change in this fundamental relationship between the CCP and PLA is making its subtle impact on such important matters such as the selection of the next generation of civil and military leaders and China’s dealing with the Taiwan issue. The two authors point out that by embarking on building professionalism as a key organizational objective, the PLA will develop its own corporate identity and logic of operational autonomy.
