    Ballistic-missile defenses, joint-strike fighters, Black Hawks, and more —

    Chinese hackers have their hands on plans for these and more of the Pentagon's most sophisticated weapons systems, just the latest sign that the culture of hacking in China continues to put America on the defensive

    "According to a report last weekby the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property, a group headed up by two ex-Obama administration officials (Dennis Blair and Jon Huntsman),

    hacking costs the U.S. some $300 billion per year. And you know what?

    China is reportedly responsible for a full 70 percent of that when it comes to corporate IP and theft.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is true. Wasn't there one or two big leaks to China (something to do with a big donor to the clintons) during the Clinton years? Even if this is more recent, it's dangerous and an embarassment.

    " it's dangerous and an embarassment."

    IT IS DANGEROUS.

    As for embarrassment, we can live with that. What we can't live with is a Chinese government with military domination over us.

    Sounds more like a scare tactic than a reason for fear.

    Even if they do have all that stuff, we have all their buffets. If they bomb us they'll fucking starve.

    really though. who let china on the internet? there really should be an option to have a western world only internet completely unconnected to most other countries, just think of all the things that we wouldnt have to put up with.

    Like really who needs a connection to nigeria?

    Canada, US, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South africa, maybe korea. 90% of the bad on the internet would disappear overnight.

    I am not sure why there has been an explosion of information with regard to China's hacking in the media. But is it about the defense budget cut? After everyone knows about the severity of the situation, should the whole nation agree that the defense budget cut be spared? Or should we even agree to pour another $300 billion into defense budget to fix the current network?
