Posted on 05/19/2014 7:02:41 AM PDT by Cringing Negativism Network
The United States government is set to file charges against government officials in China for allegedly hacking U.S. business interests, marking the first time ever that the U.S. government has formally accused another nation of using the Internet to break into U.S. businesses and gain unfair economic advantage, ABC News has learned. ...

Som Ting Wong ?
This seems actually serious.
Now that's funny, the US G0vt accusing anyone of spying is a lot like the kettle calling the pot black.
What are the chances that the Chinese Army will turn over four of its officers for trial in the US ?
There is a basic difference, which I must point out here.
America has a government.
China has a government.
America’s government, is our side.
I bet they are really REALLY scared.
It still is.
Far more than China’s government is our side.
As if we don’t do the same to them.
ya , it’s DISTRACTION TIME !!!
I’m frankly a bit shocked that everyone seems to rush to China’s defense.
We are selling out our very own manufacturing base to a massive communist country, China. and nobody seems to give a flying fig.
Not even here.
What are we going to do about it, close their Bank of America accounts?
I just don’t trust this administration for anything.
Right after we see Obama’s original unaltered birth certificate is my guess.
Only took 20+ years for them to figure this out. Strongly worded letter to follow.
This is like the US gov’t blaming Angela Merkel for spying on the US.
The Dem-Repub police state buffoons are scrambling to please their international banking masters.
Just keep the illusion going.
Dems are “liberal”, Repubs are “conservative”.
The sky is falling. Other nations are going to “attack” us. We need our police state to keep 100% surveillance on US citizens to save the citizens from attacks by China.
What keeps my server safe from attacks from China and Ukraine is my own security measures. The US government does not administer my computers, as much as politicians and their masters would like it to.
That used to be the case.
Except it’s not like the US government blaming Angela Merkel for spying.
China currently sells America 440 billion dollars worth of stuff every year (2013)
America currently sells China 122 billion dollars worth of stuff every year (2013)
That is a MASSIVE difference.
We need to make stuff. Right here in America.
It’s the liberal version of Spy vs. Spy, in this case they want to reward trial lawyers.
Another squirrel before an election.
The going to send Eric Holder to Beijing to arrest the alleged culprits?
Keep saying it.
“....file charges against government officials in China for allegedly hacking U.S. business interests....”
China’s answer: “Go ahead sue me.”
By the way, is that sheriff in AZ not working on it?
Wasn’t he supposed to come out with a world-shocking revelation?
I was referring to Merkel being spied on by the US, it was in the news a while back, I was not referring to international trade imbalances.
But since you mention it, here are our trade stats with Germany for 2013:
Export $47.442 billion
Import $114.644 billion
Balance -$67.202 billion
So our negative balance as a percent of Imports is about -58%, and the negative balance is about 1.4 times as much as we export.
In the case of China, the negative balance percent of Imports is about -72%, and the negative balance is about 2.6 times as much as we export.
Worse stats than those with Germany, but we’re still way out of wack with Germany as well.
I wholeheartedly agree, we should be net exporters of manufactured goods, though since our economy is so large, we should not shoot for reliance on a massive trade surplus. Ideally, we should look to be net balanced in total, but our financial elites do not have nationalism at heart, so they won’t be pursuing that goal any time soon.
Note that the above totals don’t break out manufactured goods from commodities, services, etc.
Can we say that trade imbalance is the root cause of the US government not being able to take a “tough stand” on internet security with China ?
Actually, it should help us. In theory, it should give us tremendous peaceful leverage, since we theoretically could easily limit imports of manufactured goods.
But even though China is communist, every adminstration back to the 70’s has steadily increased our economic relationship with China, notwithstanding any disagreements our government supposedly has with communism or how China’s elites rule their peasants.
Thus we can see that those financial elites in power behind the US government never push it to do things like balance trade - or even secure the internet.
Internet security is quite a sad joke. Right from the start, packet payloads were open to view of every router they pass through from the time they leave their origin until they finally reach their destination. The “standards” developed never really dealt with physically preventing packet sniffing. Encryption of data payloads is simply an afterthought which has come into use precisely because espionage and criminal operations have come to so widely exploit the lack of security in the internet’s architecture - and the private sector is interested in their own information security and thus there is a market for encryption facilities to enable sending data securely over a completely insecure network infrastructure.
Simply put, the internet was never intended to be secure, and, while it was not invented by Al Gore per se, it certainly was brought into use largely by the US government, with various public-private partnerships, “sweetheart” companies, the “standard” elite universities associated with new world order, top defense and government contractors, etc.
We can only conclude that our illustrious financial elites never sought secure internetworking over which to transport data belonging to the sheeple. Makes sense, why, they would certainly not want to be blocked from seeing the sheeple’s data as it passes through the elites’ internet.

I hope China does arrest the alleged culprit..
