https://pjmedia.com/spengler/the-quantu ... y-a-novel/For the past several years I've warned about China's ascendance and the threat to America's world standing. Not enough people are listening, so I've written a spy thriller about China: The Quantum Supremacy. It's available now in an Amazon Kindle edition, but I will publish it as a serial in this space over the next six months, a chapter a week. A lot of people don't like the unvarnished facts, but they like stories. So here's a story about China. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

https://pjmedia.com/spengler/4839/“Major Ma,” said Geng, “you are thinking like a Chinese intelligence officer, and that is commendable. We tend to view the West with a kind of paranoia, and well it is that we do so, for whenever we have trusted the West it has gone badly for us. But I do not think that the problem lies in your interrogation technique. It does not matter whether CIA directed this particular gang of terrorists towards the Torugart Pass or not. They know and we know that they have the capability to set terrorists loose in China. My counterpart in at the CIA knows how much trouble the Mujahidin caused Russia in Afghanistan. There are only ten million Uyghurs among 1.4 billion Chinese, but a few more attacks like the knife murders at Kunming Station would hurt the Party’s credibility. If we can’t protect civilians from terrorists, what are we good for? That cannot be tolerated. The question isn’t what the CIA is doing, but what it might be tempted to do in the future.”
“F*** you, Arnold,” said a fat man in the corner of the room. He wore a two-day beard and a white shirt with a food stain below the third button. “This is a meeting that never happened, so I never said it, but f*** you, anyway.” He turned to the newcomer. “Young man, you’re being read into an operation about ten cuts above your pay grade. We can’t trust anyone who has been dealing with the Chinese for any length of time, long enough to have been bought. We need a Mandarin-speaker straight out of the shrink-wrapping, and you’re handy. Before this is over someone is going to ask you to put your head in a noose while jumping into the Grand Canyon. If you have any sense, leave now. Better yet, quit the Agency and teach Chinese to bored college students.”
