I guess without a politician in the White House that the Chinese can bribe for
our secrets, they have to get them somewhere. Maybe Obama needs to run with
Clinton so that the Chinese have another politician on back on their payroll in
the White House.In addition, perhaps we should let the Chinese buy
up even more of our debt and then ask them to forgive our debt the way the US
has so many other countries. If not just file partial bankruptcy and wipe out
our own debt to the Chinese.
The Chinese stealing our secret information and technology. Nothing new there!
They steal our technology while exporting to us tainted food and led painted
toys for our children. Now the rotten tomatoes from Mexico are poisoning the
people. Isn't globalization wonderful!
Thank you for your comments. I tend to disagree with your statement that the
Chinese benefit much more from us sourcing in China. Have you seen how gas
prices have been increasing immensely recently? If all the products currently
produced in China were to be produced in the USA the price increases would make
the gas increases look like pocket change. The Chinese have definitely
benefited, but don't fool yourself by downplaying the benefits to the US
consumer.I'm glad your son had the opportunity to live and research
in China for a couple of months. I hope that brought him a better understanding
of the Chine culture country. I currently reside in Hong Kong and have lived in
mainland China for over a year. I still bleed red-white-and-blue (I have the
Star Spangled Banner for a ring-tone on my phone), but I my travels and
experience over here have helped open my eyes and given me a view of the big
picture.I am also very familiar with the recent and historical
Russian-Chinese meetings. The two countries are very strong allies and have been
since the PRC was established.
Understand your point--my son spent two months researching in China a short
while back.However, we have not benefited from outsourcing to China nearly
as much as they have by our doing so. I don't believe that the U.S. wants to
destroy China, but the Chinese, who have a large % of their GNP going to
military, have been very clear about their intentions toward us.I'm old
enough to remember when Kruschev visited America and warned us that we would
sell the Communist block the rope they would use to hang us. Did you read of
the recent Russian-Chinese meetings and the friendly accord as to national goals
of the two nations? I didn't think so.
I love all of these comments that are so one-dimensional. It is obvious that the
majority of Americans have no idea how complicated the US-China relations are.
The US and China are always calling each other out and saying what the other is
doing poorly, yet no actions are taken. I don't think there has ever been a more
complicated relationship between two countries in the history of the world. We
hate each other, yet we know we can't survive without each other.
The Chinese also poisoned us with putting lead paint on our toys and other
imported goods. Why don't we boycott the olypics forever and stop trade with
China permanantely. Why don't we just stop trade with all communist and
extremist countries period. And stop buying their oil and putting these
dictators in power in the first place. They owe us one. If it was not for us the
world would be safer.
let's cut off their internet access to the u.s.... i.e. block the commies in
retaliation. yeah, yeah, i know it will hurt industry and commerce on both
sides of the ocean. but i don't care. until we're not running a trade deficit
with china, it will hurt them more than it will hurt us. i don't think china is
trying to take us over, they're just trying to increase their standard of living
(stealing trade and tech secrets more than our government secrets)... But
they're doing it by cheating and stealing. let's balance the budget and
nationalize our chinese debt (all we'd have to give up in return is taiwan)
I' sure after Senator Obama talks to them they will be nice after that.
We're fixing to get a one world government, whether we want it or not. The
official language will be Chinese.And we will have brought it on
ourselves. When you own 20% of someone's debt, you have significant
power over their decisions. It reminds me of the credit card promoters who
constantly encourage already debt-laden people to get more cards. Wonder why
some politicians are so anxious for MORE government spending, considering the
state of debt the country is already in.
It is time to boycott the Olymics.
The headline on today's DN front page is completely wrong, I believe: FBI finds Chinese hacked Capitol computersI believe
the FBI has NO COMMENT on the investigation.Editors, please see my
Since China finances something like 20% of our national debt (that pays for the
Iraq War, the "economic stimulus" checks, etc), maybe they were just checking up
on their investment?I find it kind of funny to hear Americans bash
China, say that we should not deal with China, completely oblivious to the fact
that China is financing a significant portion of our national debt. We, as a
country, would have a much more difficult time living beyond our means (cutting
taxes for the rich, overthrowing other countries, etc), if China and Japan
refused to fund the US.
President Bush is wrong regarding the Summer Olympics.China's human
rights record and their long standing tech espionage in the United States is
more than enough to not support world events in their country.The
Olympics Committee should not have considered China.The US should
bycott the 2008 Summer Games.
50% of all entities charged in the US Attorneys office in federal court with
economic espionage are Chinese. If a widget costs $100 to develop using normal
R&D methods, it costs $4 to collect it using human or tech intel methods. The
Chinese surreptitiously enter most homes occupied by US diplomats in China and
probably 100% of hotel room used by visiting delegations to China. Is this new
info? No. The Chinese do not play fair. Do we have an intel service? Of
course, but we are not out to destroy the PRC like they want to overcome us. We
do not suppress our citizens like they do to thiers. They have become a softer,
nicer totalitarian currupt dictatorship.
Oh goody. Let's invade China. Raise the threat level and move in the troops.
This is the new frontier of war, deception and the struggle for power. 12 months ago, I was like everyone else. I didn't update my anti-virus,
I didn't worry about malware (didn't know what malware was) or trojans thought
hackers were teenage kids causing problems. Now I know differently. It is estimated that nearly 40% of all computers are "pwnd" or remotely
controlled as part of a "botnet" army. Not only are most of naive, but we are
active participants in causing physical (yes physical), financial and other
damage to others.Be warned, this will be very important in all of
our lives soon. It isn't only Congress.
