China is using cyberwarfare to challenge American power and distorting economic policy to exert political influence over other countries, according to a hostile congressional report. [Read the rest.]
Somehow, I knew China was going to be a big problem. I’ve blogged about China before but mostly about the free trade stuff. China got a whole lot of technology given to it (From Salon, even, a leftwing mag-rag). That’s one of the problems with niavete in the Oval Office. Clinton has a lot to answer for now that China is using its muscles to overwhelm other countries, not only economically but militarily, well, it’s kind of rough to imagine they have friendly intentions toward the country that enabled their technological advancement.
Now, China is handing off that same technology to countries that wish us harm, not just ill. And we sit here virtually helpless against them. Bush isn’t going to do anything. If he was, he would have already done it. Obama? Fat chance.
About the only hope we have is in national security developing counter-measures. It should know what the Chinese have. If it were me, I’d assume they have everything we’ve got and start from there. Unfortunately, it, too, is under the thumb of the president.
