Intelligence: China The Relentless And Victorious

American counter-intelligence efforts are catching, and convicting, a growing number of Chinese spies in the United States. This may be more because of increased spying effort by China, than because of better FBI and CIA methods....
China energetically uses the "thousand grains of sand" approach to espionage. This involves China trying to get all Chinese going overseas, and those of Chinese ancestry living outside the motherland, to spy for China, if only a tiny bit. This approach to espionage is nothing new. Other nations have used similar systems for centuries. What is unusual is the scale of the Chinese effort. Backing it all up is a Chinese intelligence bureaucracy back home that is huge, with nearly 100,000 people working just to keep track of the many Chinese overseas, and what they could, or should, be to trying to grab for the motherland. -- Strategy Page

Your Say

This presents a dilemma. Legal Chinese immigrants and Chinese-Americans are the kind of ethnics who add value to America. For this pool of talent and ambition to be badly tainted by the Chinese government is a major tragedy.

And the DOD buys Lenovo laptops and tablets as the primary computer systems for Military Medicine. IT'S COMMIES, FOLKS. YOU CAN'T TRUST COMMIES. What the heck is in the firmware? What's hidden in some unknown partition on the hard drive? What happens when the system is alerted to "call home" or just stop working? A far-fetched, complex denial of service attack, perhaps, but denial of service nonetheless.

It's too bad we can't just shoot them on the spot.

We can Jewel, but the Lefties get upset and say we're over reacting. I'm in favor of shooting the Lefties first.

Lets call it "Free Speech."

The Chinese, to give credit, are hard working copyists and thieves. But since they so despise the peculiar process of liberty--which made what they covet--all their ambitions are self-limiting other than the power to destroy. Water cannot rise higher than the reservoir that filled it.
