THE ART OF WAR: The apparently brilliant Chinese General Sun Tzu – But did he actually exist?

[My Jewish friend and all the bloody Liberals have for decades mentioned the Chinese book, from apparently 2,500 years ago, known as THE ART OF WAR. I bought a copy maybe 30 years ago. However, since I liked to study European history, especially military history, I was somewhat at odds with this book, wondering what it means with regard to what whites know. It never quite sat well with me and I sort of was not sure what to make of it.

It does have a lot of clever, cunning, devious, sneaky stuff in it. 
The book is said to have been written by a very successful Chinese General Sun Tzu. 
In recent years, as I've pondered military history more closely I finally concluded that there is nothing that Sun Tzu and the Chinese can teach us, the European Race, about warfare. Our views are the most accurate on how to wage war. 
Anyhow, I was quite surprised to discover that now there's a white academic who has looked into the issue of Sun Tzu … and concluded that … er… HE NEVER EXISTED! And he even says that the book, upon closer study, is not about the Art of War but the Art of Diplomacy!!!!

Most book stores around the world contain the so-called "Art of War" by the alleged "General" Sun Tzu. But David Jones’ research suggests neither appellation is correct. Read Art of War and look for the details for an army at war and you will not find them; No weapons, no supply lines, no wounded or dead or medical arrangements, no horses or vehicles for transport. There are continuous admonitions against losing control and getting yourself in a conflict situation. And despite the text stating over and over that the dumbest thing one can do is to attack a walled city, Art of War readers are absolutely convinced that the text says this means such assaults are not desirable—but always the last option!

Jones’ two decades of study brings a different interpretation. Reading Art of War (actually, the name is Bing-fa, meaning Art of Diplomacy) Jones sees instructions written by masters of strategic management for achieving results without conflict. It is, therefore, a peace methodology. And Jones further argues that this methodology played a dramatic and dynamic role in ending the 200 year Warring States period, and in founding the first empire of China under Qin Shi Huang.
