Unable to control his anger, President Xi slammed his fist on the conference room table. Blood rushed to his face as he furiously spoke.
"Is this true, Director Ju?"
President Xi shook his fist and glared in disbelief and rage at the other bureaucrats in the room, including Director Ju sitting across from him. A cold silence filled the room, and Director Ju replied amidst the chilling atmosphere.
"Yes, Mr. President, this is the information received from the agent in charge of overseas investigation about Japan's Ministry of Defense. They have already finished negotiating with the U.S."
National Security Director Ju's report was as follows:
1. July 2016, U.S. Nimitz-class aircraft carrier reception
2. 3000 Japanese marines on the aircraft carrier with 1 year of training
3. Purchase of 80 F-35B
4. Purchase of 8 electronic-warfare aircraft EA-18G
