Bowing to Beijing (Hardcover)
By Brett Decker and William Triplett II
Flattery Won’t Tame a Raging Dragon
While the Obama administration is mired in big-government “solutions” to “threats” such as global warming, unregulated businesses and free-market health care, Obama officials have ignored and compounded the single biggest danger facing the United States: the rising power of communist China.
In "Bowing to Beijing," Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett cut through the fog of soothing, pro-China propaganda to reveal the disturbing truth: far from the gradually reforming “partner” portrayed by its many American apologists, China is an aggressive and rapidly militarizing criminal state feverishly striving to displace America as the world’s preeminent power. Shockingly, despite Chinese leaders showing their hostile intentions in every realm, the Obama administration refuses to take action or even acknowledge the threat – and as new evidence indicates, has gone so far as to actively cover up China’s misdeeds.
In this alarming book, Decker and Triplett reveal:
- How China’s accumulating wealth is solidifying the Communist Party’s grip on power, funding a major military build-up and making the regime more bellicose
- How Obama’s reckless government spending and utopian green policies are empowering China at our expense
- China’s role as a major global proliferator of weapons of mass destruction to rogue regimes and Islamic terrorist groups
- China’s recurring pattern of stealing U.S. military, trade and company secrets
- Beijing’s vast program to buy influence in American politics and universities
- Why Obama’s policies guarantee increasing Chinese aggression toward America in the near future
With China threatening everything from our national security to our food supply, "Bowing to Beijing" explains how the Chinese regime is conspiring against America – and how our own leaders remain willfully blind to the danger.
Praise for "Bowing to Beijing"
“China’s military build-up is a reality the United States must deal with and not just today, but well into the future. Conventional weapons systems, cruise and ballistic missiles, blue-water naval forces, and nuclear weapons are all part of Beijing’s aggressive plan. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett have written a compelling analysis of China’s plans and programs, and lay out a comprehensive and persuasive proposal for America’s response. Policy-makers must read this book.”
- Ambassador John R. Bolton, former permanent representative to the United Nations and under-secretary of state for arms control and international security
“To understand what China’s unprecedented rapid modernization and expansion of its military forces mean in terms of its clear objective to achieve regional supremacy in the western Pacific and beyond, 'Bowing to Beijing' is an absolute must read. Brett M. Decker and Bill Triplett make clear that regardless of the vast economic relations between China and the U.S., unless we maintain our military deterrence capability, a serious confrontation looms just over the horizon.”
- Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., former commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet
“My Motown soul brother Brett Decker and Wild Bill Triplett take aim at communist China and hit the red dragon square between the eyes. Patriotic Americans need to read about the growing Chinese threat in 'Bowing to Beijing.'”
