Abstract : China's drive to firmly establish itself as the regional hegemony in East Asia is facing increasing pressure from various sectors of their society. The People s Liberation Army (PLA), as the guardian of the Communist Party and the keeper of internal stability is not immune to these factors. Rampant corruption across the PLA and especially across its most senior leadership now threatens the very core values of the PLA. If left unchecked, this corruption and it's institutionalization in the PLA officer corps may even extinguish China's drive to become the dominant power in East Asia.
