● Since the dawn of Homo sapiens, strategic thinking has never stopped, put forward the strategic war, is to the strategic level the contest from the “underwater” prop “water” will help us focus on the wisdom and strength to strengthen strategic research, learn and good at strategic planning.
● “Thrace who is better than no war.” The fundamental strategy of war is political war, will warfare, psychological warfare, mind war, wisdom, war, peace and war, before war is war, war of the first fighting and psychological warfare, war of the war plan. Proposed strategy is not a belligerent war, but to “stop war”, “information war”, “no war”, in order to better take the road of peaceful development.
Foshan, Guangdong Province, deputy political commissar of the Military Wang Yuanlin body at the grassroots level, high aspirations, in the army 38 years of unremitting, sleepless nights of reading and study, the combination of work experience deep thinking our military political, military, strategic, and cultural and other construction issues, writing and made a “strategic warfare” deep creative thinking, causing concern and attention to many outside the military. Early autumn in September, this reporter had an interview with him.
Reporter: for the “war strategy” was some doubt, that you say “strategic battle,” Are there “campaign war”, “tactics”? However, most experts think that this is a positive creation, the former president of the National Defense Act, Zhu will be in your London “strategic battle,” the preface to the book highly affirmed the “strategic warfare” was that the “strategic warfare” concept is “the first time in the field of global strategic military launched publicly, “” inspiring, open hearts awakened, thought-provoking. ” Why do you want to make such a concept, what kind of value?
Wang Yuanlin: so-called strategy of war, is a strategic way to deal with, inhibit, to counter the opponent’s strategy is the strategic level of confrontation and contest, a strategist and political groups to each other strategic thinking of the match-ups. If culture is the culture war battle, the battle is the war of public opinion, information, information warfare is the battle, then the strategy is the strategic nature of war battle. Strategic warfare as a form of long-term objective and applied to countries and organizations exist, but not as a “strategic battle,” the concept was put forward, but I just clear this concept from the “underwater” prop up a “water” pushed to the foreground of our thinking. The strategy as a form of battle or the struggle to be cured or clarified, we can focus on the wisdom and strength to strengthen strategic research, learn strategy vs. the scientific development of strategic policy, strategic planning. In particular, to further the future of human information, civilization, more and more people simply cast aside by violence, war will become increasingly important strategy.
strategic thinking of the “rapid fission,” up to “thinking vs.” level, to form a strategic battle. Strategic warfare is the highest level of war, war is the most economical and practical, from a strategic plan to achieve victory “without fighting the enemy’s soldiers,” the best way. Fight fight fight for is the strategic sense, culture and wisdom, is the war before the fighting and the first fighting and psychological warfare, war of the wisdom of fighting and seek war. Its ultimate value lies in the current world situation resolutely defend their core interests, and seek the greatest economic and political interests.
the current development of the world’s new revolution in military affairs, national defense and army building factors greatly increased to keep up with the trend of the world’s new military revolution, we need to stand on a higher level of thinking and greater scene down This is a strategic war thinking.
Reporter: “The Art of War” said: “All warfare is deception also.” That is the strategy and the strategy of confrontation. You say that already exist and are used in war strategy and organization among the countries, then the human history and today’s world power is how to use strategic combat it?
Wang Yuanlin: is the ancient Chinese strategic use of the Spring and Autumn period of rapid development, planning and guidance in the global war, the emphasis on political, economic, ethical and other factors, the role in the struggle, emphasize just war, Jen war, psychological warfare, just war and other values, respect for political reforms, Fuguoqiangbing, and the war focused on the long-term strategic direction. Especially the late Warring States period, Asian countries appear in the “Triangle weak to attack a strong” and “to do a strong attack the weak public” and “horizontal” “vertical” strategy, is a typical strategy for war; has still to Zheng drainage off of the strategy is left for the war; Three Kingdoms period, Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang’s “Longzhong”, also described as a typical case of strategic warfare. Chinese strategic warfare theory and experience is extremely rich, well worth studying and learning.
since the industrial revolution the world powers always attempt to strategic victory. Italy from the last century began the Air Force is committed to establishing and developing strategic theory, put forward a “theory of air power victory.” Late 19th century, with the capital market in the world mature, the growing role of the oceans by attention, then the United States, Mahan Ti a “victory on sea power.” German machinery industry with the rapid development, proposed the “theory of mechanized winning” strategy. After World War II, the United States dominate the world in order to achieve the purpose of research is always ongoing and adapt their strategy from the 1940s to play 90 years, has been the use of cold war policy, and finally making some strong strategic adversary collapse. Now the United States so-called “smart power” strategy to both hardware and software means dealing with countries in the world, unswervingly seek hegemony in the world. These methods and means, in essence, belong to the strategic battle, very worthy of our attention and study.
Reporter: Any of these actions need to establish some basis of the theory and practice, “strategic warfare” theory and practice is the basis?
Wang Yuanlin: based war strategy is primarily based on the following aspects: First, the strength of the strategic war. It is a country can achieve its strategic goals of real or potential use of critical resources, strong national power is a prerequisite for strategic warfare, what kind of strength to fight any kind of strategic warfare. Second, strategic warfare theory. One of the most important is the strategic guidance of the guiding ideology of war, in the present is to adhere to Marxism, Mao Zedong Thought and theoretical system of socialism with Chinese characteristics as a guide. Third, strategic war politics. Strategy is the essence of war for political purposes, the goal is the country in the international system to achieve national interests and political plan, only the superior political system and full cooperation to achieve the expected strategic warfare. Fourth, strategic war thinking. This is the quality of people’s basic requirements. Strategic war thinking is the highest form of strategic thinking and level, with political, international, global, holistic, systematic, long-term, future-oriented, creative and so on. For this issue, I proposed a concept called “strategic high-rise.” Those high-rise, long-term perspective of the base also. System leading organs of the military generals and even the world’s only high ground on a national, thinking all major issues in order to better plan the high-end and top-level design.
Reporter: as a form of struggle, the strategic characteristics and means of warfare is it?
Wang Yuanlin: The fundamental strategy of war is political war, will warfare, psychological warfare, mind war, intelligence war. Notable feature is the opinions of the opinions, the strategy of strategies to long and short term for long and short term, by means of means. Proposed strategy is not a belligerent war, but to “stop war”, “information war”, “no war”, a better path of peaceful development. “Skilled persons is better than no war.” Keeping a low profile, good humbleness to “Futuresoft” g “to Kennedy,” is itself a strategic consideration. To become “zero” for the win, opposition to change is compatible, it is the highest state of war strategy. Strategic warfare with a strong hidden, confusing and long-term, is real “without firing a shot” and not see the smoke of the battlefield.
strategy to establish such a war launched several awareness: First, a clear strategic direction. Strategic objects are not groundless, must have a clear goal orientation, and prioritizing. Second, focus on strategic country. Of different countries adopt different strategies for large or small, strong or weak a country, multinational and other different situations need to be strategic research, resulting in a complex process of struggle to achieve calm, at ease. Third, focus on strategic areas. Different areas have different ways of strategic warfare in the political, economic, military, culture, religion, science and technology are strategic war there. Fourth, understand the strategic situation. Fully understand and grasp the clear strategy of the opponent strategy shapes and movements, to know ourselves, know yourself.
military struggle is just a form of strategic warfare, from the United States as the representative of power struggle in the form of strategic warfare point of view, it means first and foremost political containment, that is, using political means to confront, which is the primitive form of strategic warfare, is an important path. Second is to infiltrate. The collapse of consciousness and change, than any physical confrontation are more economic means, completely without leaving a trace. Third, economic sanctions. Economy is the lifeblood of a country, economic constraints are a fundamental constraint. Fourth, the diplomatic pressure. Usually presents in the allies to consolidate the united front against the enemy or fight on the allies to drive a wedge between the enemy’s strategy. And finally a military strike. War is “thinking vs.” extension and the results of last resort, through the use of force to completely conquer the other side, expectations and ultimately to achieve strategic objectives.
Reporter: strategy of war is the “big strategy,” “all strategy,” “far strategy”, both to guide the military field, but also guide other related fields; only guidance usually, also guide the war; both guide the use of force, but also to guide the construction of military forces; to guide preparation and implementation of both war and peace guide the containment of war. War military strategy is crucial, and its success or failure determine the outcome of the war or not, a matter of national honor and national prosperity. So you think it made the military’s strategy to develop the quality of what kind of request?
Wang Yuanlin: Yes, the high-end thinking, strategic thinking, global thinking, long-term thinking, it requires the integration leading organs of the military generals and officers must have a strategic mind overlooking the world, Insight future strategic vision, good planning of the strategic wisdom, with the knowledge that some strategic, decisive battle strategy character. Specifically to do the following points: First, learning to become leading cadres. CPC Central Committee “to promote learning about the views of party building,” pointed out that the world today is undergoing major development, major changes and major adjustments, the world multi-polarization and economic globalization. Among them, the political situation, military struggle cloud wave sly deceitful, fickle, in various forms. This requires us to pay more attention to and good at learning, hard to master and use all the scientific ideas, new knowledge, to achieve continuous updating of knowledge, the only way to a keen grasp of the times, the general trend of science to judge the world, tell the country his strategic intent. Second, the supremacy of national interests to have the spirit and character. Strategy is relevant to state and national interests of the big issues, strategic victory of the future state and the nation about the fate of the party and the people to give us such a task, they should go all out to take on this task, as Zhuge Liang said and personally, and spared no efforts in dying. Third is to have open minds and far-reaching vision. The decision space of human thinking mind, the decision horizon of human thinking vision. Mind the extent of strategic planning is as big; vision of how far, how far there is strategic planning. As a strategist, you must mind the overall situation, look to the future, do not favor the one city in one place, do not care about gains and losses. In other words, their leading cadres must always be placed in “strategic high-rise” up thinking, strategizing. Fourth, a scientific way of thinking. Strategic thinking war is war, who are good at thinking, who will be able to win a chip. Therefore, we must learn to master the scientific way of thinking, understand the science of logic, use the scientific way of thinking to analyze issues and strategic planning. 5 is to have unity and team spirit. Strategic planning is not a business of the people, not a few business of the people, it is a crystallization of the wisdom of the leadership group. This requires us to solidarity, active collaboration, to achieve information sharing, knowledge sharing, intelligence sharing, brainstorming for strategic planning and adjustment of the strategic decision to make perfection, for the greatest chance of winning.
