How China gets its troops to stand to attention - pins in their collars and crosses on their backs

Demonised in the West as goons guarding the Olympic torch along its chaotic world tour, these pictures show how China's paramilitary police learn their unwavering discipline.

Officers of the People Paramilitary Police preparing for the Olympics are drilled on the parade ground with pins in their collars and crosses on their backs to ensure perfect posture.

But instead of the blue tracksuits members wore while escorting the flame, they are kitted out in full dress uniform during the exercise at their base in Shenyang, Liaoning province.

Okay, so they are not soldiers. But they are still volunteers though, right? I am pretty sure China does not use a draft for the People's Armed Police.

Pls, armed forces contains 4 types. the main part is PLA.
for example, bodyguards of president Hu are PAP, and the security guards of foreign embassies in China are PAP..............

I do not think you understand my point. No division of the Chinese army or police uses a draft. I do not know why you disagree with me? :confused:

I think "draft" and "volunteer" may be causing the confusion?

shala, in this case "volunteer" only means they are not compelled by law to join the armed forces or police - not that they don't get paid or aren't professional

Or are you saying China does require citizens to serve in PLA and PAP for a period of time?

:o I have checked the law of China's military service system.
I don't know how to translate it. socialism characteristics of the language.

maybe obligation is more appropriate imo.

The Police belongs to another system.
