” If the world really did not Qiao Feng, Li Yunlong can I marry “- when the TV series” Sword “popular in the north and south, when a female college student even said so.
behind this statement is an era of peace the people of the hero’s call. The soldiers, carrying the hero of contemporary Chinese people more complex.
from the Sino-Japanese War, “one soldier, the family honor”, to the fifties and sixties, “Who is the most lovely people”, the Chinese soldiers during the war years, with flesh and blood to write a clank steel frame man’s heroic image;
same hero complex, but in the social transition, suffered from the impact of the market economy, “all the money,” the military has become seen as “stupid soldiers “;
However, the flood, snowstorm, earthquake relief, the people again and again to see, is not afraid to sacrifice the people’s army again run ahead;
year, the National Students will also enroll one hundred and twenty thousand army soldiers, officers and men to further improve the quality of the Chinese armed forces continue to refresh the image, and each time did not disappoint.
this regard, the National Defense University, said Professor Gong Bin, change the image of the military, the real judge that reflect social values ??of social change.
This is for the military to enhance the soft power considerations, whether of foreign or domestic, are required so that the image of the shape. In an interview the experts, without exception, mentioned this.
As a Major General Group Zhengwei said Gao Jianguo, in the information under the conditions of an army does not take the initiative to shape their own people is bound to be shaped. The military must adapt to the country’s comprehensive national strength has been increased, the growing army of foreign exchange situation, in order to power the military should show his style.
people see in the Wenchuan earthquake disaster relief, the United States “International Journal” in the “death of the soldiers stood in the ruins,” a paper that describes an ongoing struggle to save lives of soldiers, the military Satisfy hat in one hand and drooping, mourning for the dead victims who hearts this startled the image. The Associated Press has to admit, and in 2004 the United States when Hurricane Katrina disaster the U.S. military, the Chinese army’s response is much faster.
Gong Bin believes it is the ruling idea of ??progress and ability to govern, the process of development of Chinese society and the army of their own development needs, determine the changes in the image of Chinese soldiers. In the concept of governance, social values ??shift occurs when the negative comments made by the armed forces is inevitable. However, when the event occurs often, “when people face death, soldiers duty-bound to face death; people again and again to see the power of the army, and this force behind the strong foundation.”
On the other hand, public professor, said a large number of students into the army, to improve the quality of officers and men. While improving the overall quality will be able to enhance the image of Chinese soldiers. This is the inevitable development of the Chinese army.
