A prophecy fulfilled

The explosion in Tianjin on Aug. 12, 2015
These massive explosions undoubtedly remind people of the enormous blast on Aug. 12, 2015, in Tianjin’s Xinhai New District. Hu Shuli, Editor-in-Chief of Xincai Media, wrote on Weibo at the time that the explosion in Tianjin was caused by a “man-made disaster + man-made disaster! It hurts so much!”
Caixin Weekly released a story that month titled “The End of the Man-Made Disaster in the Tianjin Explosion.” A reporter on the scene supplied a paragraph that said, “There were not many people on the road. The air is getting thicker and smells strange, a little like rubber burning but there is a big difference. The explosion point near the Ji Yun is silent and no one is alive, an apocalyptic scene.”
On Aug. 12, 2015, a thousand days after Xi Jinping took over as general secretary of the Communist Party of China, an explosion “big gift” was sent.
The explosion is believed to have been carried out by Zhang Gaoli, with the aim that Jiang Zemin’s group would use the bombing to express its “wishes” to the Xi administration to bargain: first, for Jiang to appear at the military parade on Sept. 3 of that year; and second, for Xi to stop liquidating and arresting people from Jiang’s group, especially going after Jiang himself.
These successive fires and explosions appear to be separate incidents. Still, they occur in such a high density that they are “uncategorical,” according to Chinese political expert Chen Pokong save for the human component,” that is, using this way to exert pressure on Xi Jinping’s re-election.
And irrigation expert Wang Weiluo told Vision Times that the real motive for the sudden power outages was to demonstrate status and put pressure on President Xi Jinping, “I’m not saying it’s a coup, but it’s a ‘muscle show’ to explain my [Jiang Zemin], and our power industry’s, strength.'”
Xi has recently begun vigorously attacking the military, the political and legal system, the entertainment industry, and wealthy capitalist firms. Xi’s regime also conducted anti-corruption financial inspections of many banks, including the Central Bank, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, the Commission Securities Regulatory Commission, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and China Construction Bank, to target the money flow of political opponents.
According to the analysis, while the Xi dictatorship is purging the Jiang faction deeper and more extensively, fire and explosion incidents have become more common in China. Is this a counter-offensive by the opponent?
