Nuclear defense and the Chinese getting information from the United States of
America through various methods, given and taken, have proved beneficial for
their own process to improve their offensive, not just defensive posture. When
the Chinese forced the United States Navy's P-3 electronic surveillance
aircraft down and kept it for engineering backwards and forwards proved
beneficial to know our type of systems, even though changed, now. They know the
architecture and systems. We have gone to their country with the latest of our
own commercial electronics of all types and shapes and sizes. They have the
cleanest of rooms for electronics but people in the countryside of their cities
can't breathe. Their beautiful rivers have become polluted with our
industrial wastes produced from the products we buy. They have our intellectual
property but we don't care as long as we get their products on our shelves.
I remember when Wal-Mart used to say "Made in America" with pride.
Now, you can't find anything, not even produce with that "Made in
America" on a label. Some items that said United States of Mexico, which is
sort of America. Pride in America is Obamacare.
For our nation without long-term policies just draws itself into one crisis
after another without a real thought process going into it. Our Secretary of
the Treasury may pay his taxes but he is a politician grown in the same medium
as President Obama. We don't have a budget for 5 years and go over to a
country that owns some of our country's equity and show our power.
Cyber-security is an important issue and it is ironic that South Korea, an arch
enemy of China for 60 years gets hacked in their financial and computer systems
while having talks with the Chinese. War without physical violence just the
violence of not being able to get the funds a country's citizens need when
they need them. Our country's banking systems pushed the ATMs and
electronic banking but not the cyber protection to go with them. It is ironic
that people in this country have to buy their own antivirus, anti-hacking
packages and the banks are not secure. Our government systems at all levels get
hacked and not defending our citizens against real threats. Our priorities in
social systems that don't win but entitlements.
The article states "Beijing is locked in territorial feuds with Japan and
several Southeast Asian nations that threaten to draw in the United
States."Having these feuds is not a direct attack on anyone...
especially not the United States. I fail to understand why we insist on policing
and becoming directly involved with the feuds and differences of almost every
country in the world. Yes, many are our allies. That means we have
economic ties and other common interests. It also means we will support them in
event of a direct military attack. But there are numerous ways of dealing with
feuds and differences short of military intervention. That being the case,
it's difficult to understand why we feel the need to get involved with
anything short of direct military threats, as we so often do. We are only
5% of the world's population and our interference tendencies tend to make
many other countries of the world harbor resentment toward us. Besides that, we
no longer have the economic reserves to keep getting involved so often with
other country's affairs. It also tends to draw us into wars that the
American people do not want.
Just read that a Chinese foreign exchange student was caught dating a man twice
her age that was a civilian defense contractor for the US. She learned
classified information on U.S. nuclear weaponry, missile defenses and war plans.
DOJ did not say whether she was a spy, but is looking into it. Might be
nothing, but if Pearl Harbor taught us anything it is that actions speak louder
