    China's Cyberassault on America

    There is no money to steal on the electrical grid, nor is there any intelligence value that would justify cyber espionage: The only point to penetrating the grid's controls is to counter American military superiority by threatening to damage the underpinning of the U.S. economy. Chinese military strategists have written about how in this way a nation like China could gain an equal footing with the militarily superior United States.

    What would we do if we discovered that Chinese explosives had been laid throughout our national electrical system? The public would demand a government response. If, however, the explosive is a digital bomb that could do even more damage, our response is apparently muted—especially from our government.

    Congress hasn't passed a single piece of significant cybersecurity legislation. When the Chinese deny senior U.S. officials' claims (made in private) that Beijing is stealing terabytes of data in the U.S., Congress should not leave the American people in doubt. It should demand answers to basic questions

    First they try to kill us with their buffets, now they want to take down our internet?
    Maybe the big corporations should bring their manufacturing plants back home and fuck their little world up a bit.

    Aren't monks celibate? Being surrounded by hot gay celibate men = mild hell?
    Sorry, we're de-railing this thread.

    I'm not sure how you'd legislate against it, the only thing they can do is provide more $ to protect it. (Totally isolated intranet?)
