"China expert Robert Spalding reveals the shocking success China has had infiltrating American institutions and compromising our national security. The media often suggest that Russia poses the greatest threat to America's national security, but the real danger lies farther east. While those in power have been distracted and disorderly, China has waged a six-front war on America's economy, military, diplomacy, technology, education, and infrastructure -- and they're winning. It's almost too late to undo the shocking, though nearly invisible, victories of the Chinese. In Stealth War, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spalding reveals China's motives and secret attacks on the West. Chronicling how our leaders have failed to protect us over recent decades, he provides shocking evidence of some of China's most brilliant ploys, including: Placing Confucius Institutes in universities across the United States that serve to monitor and control Chinese students on campus and spread communist narratives to unsuspecting American students. Offering enormous sums to American experts who create investment funds that funnel technology to China. Signing a thirty-year agreement with the US that allows China to share peaceful nuclear technology, ensuring that they have access to American nuclear know-how. Spalding's concern isn't merely that America could lose its position on the world stage. More urgently, the Chinese Communist Party has a fundamental loathing of the legal protections America grants its people and seeks to create a world without those rights. Despite all the damage done so far, Spalding shows how it's still possible for the U.S. and the rest of the free world to combat -- and win -- China's stealth war"-- Provided by publisher.

*********************** 100 STARRED Review ***************************
The Chinese Communist Party's Document 9 - - America's 123 Agreement with China - - Holy Cuh-rap!!!
Having served in several branches of the US military, and having followed the corrupt careers of Generals James Clapper, Patrick Hughes and Michael Hayden, I've long had considerable antipathy for general officers who've sold out their country for personal profit and career success - - but Gen. Spalding does not fall into this sordid category - - Gen. Spalding is the Real Deal!
The general's concise explanations of full spectrum cyber espionage yielding complete knowledge networks/databases have never been explained in the American media and are seriously mind boggling.
The Voice of America - - under complete control of the Chinese Communist Party - - why am I not surprised???
Just read the darn book!
This book is rated triple X:
[FYI: Gen. Spalding mentions that Blackstone Group's Stephen Schwarzman supports China [the Chinese Communist Party] and several chapters later mentions Tsinghua University's media lab which routinely receives the complete data feed for Weibo [China's social media platform] for complete analysis. What the author did not mention, perhaps due to book space constraints, was that Schwarzman financially supports the surveillance program at Tsinghua University - - Schwarzman made an endowment to that Chinese university of between $100 million to $300 million and that media lab is simply another node of the CCP's Social Credit System which, if you comprehend some of the passages in this book, you will grasp what I mean when I state that the Social Credit System is functioning globally, not just implemented within China.]
