China Winning Broadly On Espionage
Pauline Arrilliga of the Associated Press has a good piece on the scale of China’s espionage in the United States.
China’s going to close the military and industrial gap not just because the US companies are moving technology en masse into China but also because the Chinese are very good at finding corruptible American citizens and residents. And Shriver is just one of at least 57 defendants in federal prosecutions since 2008 charging espionage conspiracies with China or efforts to pass classified information, sensitive technology or trade secrets to intelligence operatives, state-sponsored entities, private individuals or businesses in China, according to an Associated Press review of U.S. Justice Department cases. Of those, nine are awaiting trial, and two are considered fugitives. The other defendants have been convicted, though some are yet to be sentenced.
China will surpass the US economically and the US military edge won’t last long.
With many former top officials of the US government now acting as paid agents of foreign governments (and what does it mean?) Americans in important positions are easily purchased. So as China’s influence buying power, technological prowess, and economy all grow the US has got to find a strategy for how to defend its real interests. That means it has to stop serving interests of assorted economic and ethnic interests. I think the prospects are bleak for such a big pivot in how our elites govern.
So America’s future is one of decline.
Locust: I laugh when I read stories like this, it proves that I am right! And if im right about these things well then the future I see is also right. But u know what with 2 billion less people in the world, the vast majority of asia a nuclear wasteland, Latinos on government controlled reserves to protect them from revenge attacks by white north americans, black americans relegated to a history book in post collapse america, and the emergence of a new military/economic alliance between what’s left of America, europe, and Russia, I can only say its great to be alive!
