The Lin Biao quotation to the right reads "History has proved and will go on proving that people’s war is the most effective weapon against U.S imperialism and its lackeys...U.S. imperialism like a mad bull dashing from place to place, will finally be burned to ashes in the blazing fires of the people’s wars it has provoked by its own actions." It is taken from his Long Live the Victory of People’s War! In Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of Victory in the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japan, a pamphlet published by the Foreign Languages Press on 3 September 1965. This quote is from the end of the section titled "Defeat U.S. Imperialism and Its Lackeys by People’s War". The full Chinese text can be found here; the translated text can be found here.
