China’s People’s Liberation Army believes that biological weapons, not nuclear weapons, are the key to global military dominance.
In our recent Gateway Pundit article, we described the 2005 and 2006 Chinese military publications by Colonel Ji-wei Guo, who advocated the use of biotechnology in developing new methods of waging war and recommended that military medical doctors be involved in creating bioweapons.
In his 2008 book, “Biological Outlook on War and Foresight of Biotechnology Supremacy,” Colonel Guo elaborated on the application of biotechnology in bio-based war, representing the “Third Leap” in military strategy:
“The third leap includes biotechnology and related sciences that develop and grow on the basis of information technology (including advanced computer and communication), nano-science and other convergence technologies, where biotechnology and biomedical science (including genetic engineering), cognitive science (including cognitive neuroscience) are comprehensively applied. It will cause huge quantitative changes in the combat environment, combat methods, space-time relationship, military structure and function, and will eventually cause new qualitative changes, which will bring about profound changes in modern military history. The operational level change brought by this military transformation is the further extension of the theory of power control with modern biotechnology as the main feature.”
