Description

Did you know that....

* China is quietly purchasing and squirreling away vast amounts of the earth's remaining oil? * That the Chinese are a huge major player on Wall Street and control billions in American investments? * That while the US has been fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Chinese have been focusing its substantial muscle on upgrading their nation's inner-structure and industrial strength? *That the Chinese control most of the world's rare earth resources, all of which are essential for cell phones, computers, electronic devices, etc.?

And this is just the beginning. RED ALERT will be a most provocative and, in truth, a frightening examination about the growing political, economic, and social power of China and the threat that nation poses to the Western world.

Peppered with the startling statistics, charts and evidence of how China continues to expand its economic reach, RED ALERT is meant to be both controversial and powerful in its scope.
