    Unrestricted Warfare: China's Master Plan to Destroy America
    By Colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, Introduction by Al Santoli

    As incredible as it may be to believe, three years before the Sept. 11 bombing of the World Trade Center a Chinese military manual titled Unrestricted Warfare touted such an attack – suggesting it would be difficult for the U.S. military to cope with. Here is an excerpt from Unrestricted Warfare:

    “Whether it be the intrusions of hackers, a major explosion at the World Trade Center, or a bombing attack by bin Laden, all of these greatly exceed the frequency bandwidths understood by the American military...”

    In reading China’s military manual Unrestricted Warfare, you will learn that the events of Sept. 11 were not a random act perpetrated by independent agents. Indeed, Chinese military planners believe that terrorism is just one of the many tools at the hands of nations and their terrorist allies to wage total war against the United States.

    You will be surprised to learn:

    --The two PLA colonels who authored Unrestricted Warfare have been hailed as heroes in China since Sept. 11.
    --The Chinese state-run propaganda machine is cashing in on the terror attacks, producing books, films and video games glorifying the strikes as a humbling blow against an arrogant nation.
    --Chinese Communist Party officials are saying that President Jiang Zemin has obsessively and gleefully watched and re-watched pictures of the aircraft crashing into the World Trade Center.
    --The CIA’s own translation agency reported that this book identifies the U.S. as China’s main enemy, and details how a weak nation can destroy America using unorthodox attacks, like the 9-11 attacks.
    --China is preparing itself and encouraging others to engage the U.S. in total war. The book is chock full of plans and strategies, from using computers, to smuggling illegal immigrants, to manipulating the stock markets, to influencing the U.S. media, to using weapons of mass destruction – all to destroy America.
    --Recent press reports indicate that China has assisted and continues to assist militarily and economically the Taliban and al-Qaeda – even after Sept. 11.

    The doctrine of total war outlined in Unrestricted Warfare clearly demonstrates that the People’s Republic of China is preparing to confront the United States and our allies by conducting “asymmetrical” or multidimensional attacks on almost every aspect of our social, economic and political life.

    Here’s what others say about Unrestricted Warfare:

    “You need to read Unrestricted Warfare because it reveals China’s game plan in its coming war with America.... China thinks it can destroy America by using these tactics.” Adm. Thomas Moorer, Former Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

    “The 9-11 attacks may just be the beginning. Many terrorist nations and groups will try to imitate this operation … and China’s war book Unrestricted Warfare will be their text.” Maj. Gen. John K. Singlaub,
    Former Chief of Staff, US Forces Korea
