A recently-declassified Chinese military document states communist
China will first conduct a “Vietnam”-like conventional war against
American forces, and then eventually fight a nuclear war against the
U.S. homeland.

The document, recently translated by an American intelligence agency,
was sent by the Chinese army central command to all the regional
garrisons and army corps headquarters in China. A copy was obtained by
WorldNetDaily for this exclusive report.

According to the August 1999 policy document published by the
People’s Liberation Army Office of the Central Military Command, China
is “willing to sustain major losses of our armed forces” in exchange for
large losses of U.S. military personnel. The Central Military Command is
the party command structure of the People’s Liberation Army — that is,
the people who make policy for the Chinese military.

“If the U.S. forces lose thousands or hundreds of men under our
powerful strikes, the anti-war sentiment within their country will force
the U.S. government to take the same path as they did in Viet Nam,”
states the Chinese army document.

Titled “Watching Closely for Changes in Relationships with Taiwan and
Enhancing Awareness of Military Leadership of Current Situation,” the
Chinese army strategy document also describes a chilling scenario of
nuclear war with America.

“In comparison with the U.S. nuclear arsenal, our disadvantage is
mainly numeric, which in real wars the qualitative gap will be reflected
only as different requirement of strategic theory. In terms of
deterrence, there is not any difference in practical value. So far we
have built up the capability for the second and third nuclear strikes
and are fairly confident in fighting a nuclear war. The PCC (Communist
Party Central Committee) has decided to pass through formal channels
this message to the top leaders in the U.S.”

The Chinese army command document also noted that recent U.S. combat
experience cannot be compared to a future war with the massive People’s
Liberation Army. China is capable of massing millions of troops, and
has over 5,000 aircraft that can be thrown into a battle over Taiwan.
In addition, the Chinese military noted it had a clear edge in fighting
a tactical nuclear war with American forces in the Pacific region.

“In terms of air defense,” noted the Chinese army document, “it is
impossible for the U.S. Air Force to enjoy the kind of dominance which
they maintained in Iraq or Yugoslavia.”

“It can be safely expected that once the U.S. launches an attack, the
front line of U.S. forces and their supporting bases will be exposed
within the range of our effective strikes. After the first strategic
strike, the U.S. forces will be faced with weaponry and logistic
problems, providing us with opportunities for major offensives and win
large battles.”

According to the Chinese military, “Unlike Iraq and Yugoslavia, China
is not only a big country, but also possesses a nuclear arsenal that has
long since been incorporated into state warfare system and play a real
role in our national defense.”

“During the last crisis across the Taiwan Straits, the U.S. tried to
blackmail us with their aircraft carrier(s), but when their spy
satellites confirmed that our four nuclear submarines which used to be
stationed at Lushun Harbor had disappeared, those politicians addicted
to the Taiwan card could not imagine how worried their military
commander were.”

The Chinese military command also outlined its plan for a quick
victory by using overwhelming numbers in a massive assault against
Taiwan.

“Taiwan occupies only a small area. Although the quality of its
equipment is not too bad, its quantity is limited. It is obvious that
after the first fatal strike, the Taiwan forces have no way to organize
effective resistance. Under such circumstances, we will be able to
control Taiwan before the U.S. intervention and then concentrate our
forces to fight the U.S. Based on this scenario, it is impossible for
the U.S. to force us to fight on two fronts when it tries to protect
Taiwan.”

The Chinese army document also noted that the Chinese diplomatic
attack has started in the “war” with America. According to the
military, recent Chinese diplomatic efforts successfully lined up a
solid wall of support from the other Asian powers, allowing the Chinese
army to move forces south in preparation for an invasion of Taiwan.

“Internationally, President Jiang Zemin will go to Biskek in late
September to attend the five-country meeting, including China, Russia,
Kyrgzstan, Kazakstan and Tajikstan. The meeting will sum up and expand
cooperations in the field of security and reach agreements on reduction
of armed forces stationed along the borders and establishment of
military trust.”

“The above efforts will not only eliminate security concerns along
our rear by reducing the traditional pressure along our northeast and
northwest border, and increase the proportion of forces which can be
moved to the southeast coastal regions, but also serve to ensure our
exchanges with the outside world by land routes during the war.”
