Korean Abstract

It is clearly recognized as the world’s only superpower. Under these circumstances, the concept of information preconception in grandchild philosophy is recognized as a key element of a complete asymmetric strategy for China to achieve its strategic goals. This paper argues that, while excluding factors of conventional or military conflict with Taiwan, China is continuing its efforts to take advantage of the information industry with the following four factors. The first is that China understands America much better than the US understands China. The second is to thoroughly block information leaks from China to the United States. Thirdly, China’s strategic goals and strategies are no bigger than that of the US, and finally, the United States has a unified and unified strategy But China has a unified strategy.

English abstract

While China is a region of great power, its leaders perceive the United States as a hegemon in a unipolar world. Using information operations and Sun Tzu’s philosophy, the Chinese will pursue a holistic asymmetric strategy to achieve their strategic aims. While avoiding the likelihood of a conventional conflict over Taiwan, China will succeed in undermining the US for four main reasons: China knows the US better than
the US knows China; China exercises power by the denial of information to the US; China has limited strategic goals, and China has a unified strategy while the US has none.
