Similarly, another contemporary world war is on: the owners of China have been trying to have “n” times more scientists and engineers in the post-nuclear military fields than the U.S.A. has. This is clear from the statistical yearbooks of China, available at the New York Public Library. But what American professor or a congressman will read books from a public library?
The war between the owners of China and the free West is not noticed in the free West. It may be noticed so shortly before the total annihilation of the free West that any defense will be belated.
In the modern wars, the development of superweapons (like nuclear weapons between 1939 and 1945 in the U.S.A.) is the essence of a war, while the U.S. use of atom bombs in Japan took just a couple of days till its unconditional surrender.
The modern wars in countries like China begin with the education of scientists and engineers able to construct the equipment producing superweapons.
The scientists and engineers include those foreigners to whom the word “genius” is applicable. The Chinese recruiters promised to a Western weapons designer US$150,000,000 if he works in China: half of the sum being delivered to him on his arrival, and the other half used for his salary.
I have been writing about the motivation of the owners of China. The free West evokes, by its very existence, the hatred for their owners of 1.1 billion Chinese slaves (that is, the population of China minus 0.2 billion Chinese whom the owners of China consider prosperous). Yes, the owners of China believe that it is safer for them to annihilate the free West than to keep 1.1 billion Chinese slaves in slavery and leave the free West for them to admire.
The owners of Russia promised paradise on earth to its population instead of the hell of the capitalist West. But in 1991, that is, more than 70 years after Lenin’s “revolution,” the Soviet dictatorship was overthrown. True, another dictatorship came in, several years later. But these were new owners of Russia, not those of 1991.
The owners of China want to preserve their ownership, and this is why they have to remove by super-weapons the present stimulant of hatred for them—the free West.
The war of the owners of China is invisible. The more trusting, good-natured, friendly the West is to the owners of China, the better this is for their secret war. Their secret war may last decades. Then their open war will take days, hours, minutes or seconds.
Since the Industrial Revolution, Western Europe regarded science and engineering as its hereditary attributes. But they are not. China produced Newton’s calculus, book-printing, compass, and what not before the Industrial Revolution.
In the Western old-fashioned war much came from an aristocratic duel when an aristocrat challenged his opponent and faced his pistol while shooting at him. Even Hitler, a bandit and a scoundrel, declared war on the United States and on Stalin’s Russia.
In China, even in antiquity, a war should begin as unexpectedly for the enemy as possible, and then the victory will come all the more quickly. In the epoch of post-nuclear super-weapons, such a “least expected” attack may be the beginning and the end of a war—an instant war that leaves nothing of the enemy. There may be no worsening of diplomatic relation—on the contrary, these may be pure diplomatic sunshine, trade, friendship. The greater surprise for the side attacked, the better for the attacker.
The search in China for new super-weapons should never stop. Possibly, it is the latest Chinese super-weapon that will prove for the enemy totally unexpected, absolutely unknown, ruling out any defense.
