Chinese Chips-Checkmate!

We are s-o-o-o-o lucky China is our friend.

Seriously-why do we tolerate Beijing when its clear intention is domination of the West? Are we blind or just plain suicidal?

From the Times of India

WASHINGTON: The Chinese cyber spies have penetrated so deep into the US system — ranging from its secure defence network, banking system,
electricity grid to putting spy chips into its defence planes — that it can cause serious damage to the US any time, a top US official on counter-intelligence has said.

Chinese penetrations of unclassified DoD networks have also been widely reported. Those are more sophisticated, though hardly state of the art,” said National Counterintelligence Executive, Joel Brenner, at the Austin University Texas last week, according to a transcript made available on Wednesday.

Listing out some of the examples of Chinese cyber spy penetration, he said: “We’re also seeing counterfeit routers and chips, and some of those chips have made their way into US military fighter aircraft.. You don’t sneak counterfeit chips into another nation’s aircraft to steal data. When it’s done intentionally, it’s done to degrade systems, or to have the ability to do so at a time of one’s choosing.”

Referring to the Chinese networks penetrating the cyber grids, he said: “Do I worry about those grids, and about air traffic control systems, water supply systems, and so on? You bet I do. America’s networks are being mapped. There has also been experience of both Chinese and criminal network operations in the networks of some of the banks”.

Because of all the crypto-communists and dupes in the ACT party who keep supporting our current lefty government which is committed to snuggling up with the Chinese Communist Party isn't it?

Be interesting to know what some of these Red nappy ACT MPs friend's flatmates said to somebody in 1971, wouldn't it Trev?

The West tolerates China because they produce consumer good for a fraction of the cost of Japan and Korea. In other words the West tolerates capitalist China. The Cold War still exists with Communist China but Capitalist China is a good friend. It is an enigma wrapped in a fortune cookie.
