China has a very long and storied history, one that is full of all the vicissitudes of the human experience. Pearl Buck’s ‘The Good Earth’ has a marvelous look into what the life of an average person in China was like, prior to the entrance of Opium and Communism, and the dark shadows those events and ideas cast upon the Celestial Empire. Today, on PJ Media, Richard Fernandez did a very interesting article on China. In this article, it talked about a new age of unrestricted warfare.
This details how two Chinese Colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui laid out how China could defeat America without conventional warfare. A neat thesis follows:
‘In 1999, two Chinese colonels wrote a book called Unrestricted Warfare, about warfare in the age of globalization. Their main argument: Warfare in the modern world will no longer be primarily a struggle defined by military means — or even involve the military at all….
Colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui argued that war was no longer about “using armed forces to compel the enemy to submit to one’s will” in the classic Clausewitzian sense. Rather, they asserted that war had evolved to “using all means, including armed force or non-armed force, military and non-military, and lethal and non-lethal means to compel the enemy to accept one’s interests.” The barrier between soldiers and civilians would fundamentally be erased, because the battle would be everywhere.
The number of new battlefields would be “virtually infinite,” and could include environmental warfare, financial warfare, trade warfare, cultural warfare, and legal warfare, to name just a few. They wrote of assassinating financial speculators to safeguard a nation’s financial security, setting up slush funds to influence opponents’ legislatures and governments, and buying controlling shares of stocks to convert an adversary’s major television and newspapers outlets into tools of media warfare. According to the editor’s note, Qiao argued in a subsequent interview that “the first rule of unrestricted warfare is that there are no rules, with nothing forbidden.” That vision clearly transcends any traditional notions of war.’
I would like to focus on the highlighted text and ask the reader if China isn’t already doing this? Isn’t China paying for a documentary on the Notorious RBG? Don’t they heavily invest in America already? What interest in Hollyweird does China have? And do we even comprehend the totality of Chinese influence on our media? Couldn’t China use companies it invests in surreptitiously to buy and control American media companies? With the nonstop media attacks on Trump, who is one of the most hostile Presidents to China that we have ever had, does anyone doubt possible links between the media attacks and the financial clout of China? Also, with the Mueller investigation, who doubts that China would love the division that pinning Russian collusion on America would bring? What a genius master stroke, to have Americans fighting over a fake Russian Collusion charge, while the Chinese Dragon continues flexing it’s muscles for an eventual face off with a declining Russia and America? Who poses a threat to America, Russia or China? China has 1.5 billion people, Russia has 140 million, and we are worried about Russia and her aging Nuclear Weapons? That is silly. Also, Russia is Orthodox Christian which is much closer to America’s Christian Heritage. China is the world’s biggest atheist nation. Do we forget that secular atheist nations murdered 100 million in the last years? Are we going to be fooled by the leftist malicious lies about how Christianity killed so many people, when anyone who knows the Bible halfway decently knows the New Testament forbids murder, and Christ not only didn’t kill anyone ever, but he forbade his followers from murdering anyone as well? Does anyone not know that the leftists are simply projecting their own murderous ways onto Christianity, which was the entity responsible for ending and/or containing the leftist holocausts of Hitler, Mao, and Stalin?
China is currently developing hypersonic missiles that can take out an aircraft carrier, is consolidating her ownership of the rare earth minerals, is building islands in the South China Sea, and is flexing her muscles in regards to Taiwan, who she regards as her own. We ought to pay attention to real threats, and not be distracted by the, possibly Chinese induced, smokescreen of Russian Collusion.
