Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elite Slept By: Brigadier General Robert Spalding

This book is extremely eye opening.  I alas y knew China was engaging in corrupt tactics from a technology IP perspective because that is the business I am in.  When Huawei first developed their routers, it was literally the Cisco Systems operating system.  When I worked at a distributor of computer parts and equipment, people were arrested for writing down serial numbers as they were being used for fake China created fakes.  But economic warfare was way more than I expected.  Also appalling was the chapter on "law-fare".

The author seems to be non-partisan as he criticizes both majority parties of the US. He is critical on Mitch McConnell for his wife's unholy alliance with the CCP as well as Obama and Biden. Although I disagree on some of the author's recommendations for rectifying the China problem, I do believe it is worth looking into.

At a minimum, the author does praise President Trump on his efforts and sees them as a positive step forward. However when I hear Biden come out and say "China is going to eat our lunch?" It gives me pause.  How can a man in the VP seat for 8 years and still either be ignorant or complicit to what is going on there?  It is not a long book, but very concise.

I was recently in Jamaica and saw a brand new highway that was fabricated by China for Jamaica.  Reminded me of the chapter on Shri Lanka

Here is the story of Shri Lanka
