Client News Release: Has Author Lee Kessler Uncovered the Ultimate Asymmetrical Weapon in “White King Rising”?

Readers of Lee Kessler’s novels, “White King and the Doctor” and “White King Rising,” are finding the answers they seek to the question “What’s happening to America?”

Los Angeles, CA – February 08, 2010 – The concept of asymmetrical war and weaponry has been with us since before the time of the Greeks and Romans. It is a term utilized by insiders, military strategists and some media pundits to describe the assault on America by terrorists.

When asked about asymmetrical warfare, Lee responded, “It is exactly the type of warfare implemented by the real life terrorists in my novels, White King and the Doctor and White King Rising. A thumbnail definition of this type of warfare is when one side uses its strengths to overcome its opponents’ weaknesses. Such struggles often involve strategies and tactics that are unconventional and may not necessarily be militarized. The term is rarely used or even seen by the average citizen.”

She went on to say, Fourth Generation Warfare (4GW) is conflict characterized by a blurring of the lines between war and politics, soldier and civilian. It is a type of warfare that weakens one’s will to win using a number of elements including terrorism, direct attacks on the enemy's culture, and highly sophisticated psychological warfare—especially through media manipulation and lawfare. Lawfare is a type of asymmetrical warfare waged via the use of international law to attack an opponent on moral grounds, with an objective of winning a public relations victory.”

In White King and the Doctor and White King Rising, Lee Kessler exposes the fourth-generation warfare tactics and the asymmetrical weapon used by terrorist Ayman Al-Zawahiri to bring down the United States from within. Ex-CIA analyst James Mikolas and Andrew Weir, his young Grand-master chess champion partner, together with Brian Washington Carver, a star collegiate football player and computer “gamer,” work out a plan to stop Zawahiri from triggering his doomsday scenario against the United States—set to launch June 30, 2011.
