    Biological Weapons the Focus of China’s Military Research in the Last 20 Years

    A Revolution in Warfare By All Means




    The book — termed Unrestricted Warfare in the English translated version — went on to state that geographical security is an outdated concept. Threats to national security may not come from cross-border invasion, but from non-military actions. Qiao and Wang articulated that definitions of security must include geographical, political, economic, resource, religious, cultural, data, environmental, and near-earth space security.



    While commenting on the bans on chemical, biological weapons, and landmines, the authors argued that for a country to accept rules which regulate war depends on whether the laws and rules are favorable to its own national interests. They contended that powerful nations use the rules to control others, for instance “by banning chemical and biological weapons.”


    War for Biological Dominance




    More than a decade later, a 2010 publication titled War for Biological Dominance (制生权战争) emphasized the impact of biology on future warfare.



    The book, published by Xinhua Publishing House in October 2010, was authored by Guo Jiwei (郭继卫), a professor and chief physician at the Third Military Medical University, Army University. The book highlighted the decline of traditional military thinking and focused upon emerging trends in military thinking, the invisible battlefield, and unexpected changes.

    Not a new concept at all. Biowarfare has been around for millennia. The problem it presents is that, while attractvie to smaller, poorer nations that cannot afford modern, hi-tech military forces, their opponents are usually highly developed nations that can wipe them out using similar tactics or even conventional or nuclear munitions...and of course, the very great risk of such bioweapons killing themselves in the process.

    It's very much a two-edged sword.
