A little Background for the book “Invasion USA“
The “economy-bubble” of good, soft living burst in the United States and Europe for many half a decade ago. Unemployment rose, average incomes dropped, family purchasing power decreased, and the life of comfortable Americans changed for the long term.
Now it is about to happen in China, a country now spoilt by good living, luxuries, and a life of material wealth for many. How are the new wealthy Chinese companies and workers, as well as the demanding Chinese Government going to make of this direction reversal?
An old proverb: “First give children candy, then try and take the candy away?” sums up the reactions I believe China will have once its economy bubble bursts in the next year or two.
Always a very proud nation, the Chinese government, and many of its modern people will rise up
against the lowering-quality of life once the country’s GDP returns to what Europe and the U.S. currently have.
This idea of China manufacturing a large percentage of the world’s modern electronics was a subject that interested me to start writing a fictional series of novels about China rebounding from “The Good life” five years ago.
I searched for a modern dystopian subject to write about; The idea of China manufacturing everything I use; my cell phone, my computer hardware, everything my family purchases here in the USA. This idea of the power, the control, and the system the Chinese are using to control the USA became a good subject for my writing of the INVASION USA Series over the last four years.
There was one main drawback to a possible Chinese invasion of the United States; the mighty US military. What could they do about this last barrier to become the most powerful and richest country on earth?
As a UK reviewer wrote about my INVASION USA Series on Amazon UK “The plot is a good one and will have people in China saying either “Damn why didn’t we think of that. Or Damn the Yankees, they know our plans.” I think they might have figured out a way to actually do it!

US weapons ‘full of fake Chinese parts’. Thousands of United States’ warplanes, ships and missiles contain fake electronic components from China, leaving them open to malfunction, according to a US Senate committee.

China was never a “Blue Water Navy” a navy which could sail anywhere in the world and attack a country on another continent. For the last several centuries, the Chinese military was designed for defense. Lately the plans have changed, several aircraft carriers are now under manufacture and within a decade China could take its new, modern, and mighty power anywhere in the world.
Naval expert: Aircraft carrier will play a major role in settlement of islands disputes

China’s first aircraft carrier (Xinhua/Li Tang)
Translated by People’s Daily Online
An exclusive interview with naval expert Li Jie Naval expert Li Jie said that China’s first aircraft carrier, which is mainly used for experiments and training, will soon enter service, which will mark a significant milestone in China’s naval and maritime history. The aircraft carrier will play an important role in China’s settlement of islands disputes and defense of its maritime rights and interests.
After entering service, the aircraft carrier will enhance the overall combat capability of the Chinese navy, and change its traditional naval warfare mindset. It is far more than just a large naval vessel, and its addition will bring fundamental, qualitative changes to the navy’s operational style, organizational and troop structures, military theories, logistical support, and equipment.
A battle group built around an aircraft cattier can fight a three-dimensional battle at sea. Traditional large- and medium-sized warships such as cruisers and destroyers can perform outstandingly in anti-ship, air defense, and antisubmarine operations, but are unable to establish air supremacy. A carrier battle group will not only enhance the Chinese navy’s combat and defense capabilities, but properly integrate the country’s naval and air forces, contributing significantly to the exponential growth in China’s maritime combat capability along with the constant development of information technology.
The aircraft carrier will also play a major role in consolidating China’s great power status. Its addition will bring a significant leap forward for China’s maritime forces, which include the navy, maritime law enforcement agencies, and air force. Comprehensive utilization and coordination of these forces and a carrier battle group capable of far seas operations will greatly enhance China’s defense in depth in the sea.
As my novels depict, I believe that a dystopian plan could already be in progress. Why not? What do the Chinese have to lose? They are a governmentally controlled mass of people. Now, unfortunately, they have seen the money, trinkets, soft life, and power success brings, and this time I believe they will scream if it is taken away.
