“The East Wind shall prevail over the West Wind,” prophesied Mao Zedong. Lest you think Mao’s successors have departed from his philosophy, consider that the latest Chinese long-range nuclear missiles are called the “East Wind” series.
Sound threatening? You’re right, and Edward Timberlake and William Triplett II (Year of the Rat) back up your gut feelings with solid evidence amassed over five long years. Using the Freedom of Information Act, the authors break new ground, revealing startling Chinese military achievements that include a proliferation threat to Europe, the development of exotic new space-based weapons, and remarkable advances in potentially devastating information warfare.When Indian Prime Minister Rao met with Sen. Larry Pressler in May 1994 (at midnight, on Capitol Hill) and told Pressler that the US and China would be at war within 10 years, he was dead serious. If only a fraction of this book is on the money, America is about to be stunned by the emergence of a Communist superpower, armed with the most modern nuclear and conventional arms—a superpower harboring darker ambitions and wielding greater strength than the former Soviet Union.
Have Timberlake and Triplett come up with the ultimate right-wing scare story? Not even close. Their documentation is enough to convince the most ecstatic liberal. We suggest you sit down before reading on. Mind-opening. A few of the sparks Timberlake and Triplett let fly
