...I have to stop laughing here long enough to post this.

One !Phaha! moment....

...ok !Phah!


So... The !Phah!... Sorry... The US gives a list over to China of persons that they identified as hackers, not long before Obama was supposed to meet with China. Some how, we know who they are. We hand over this list and China says, "Sure.. We'll arrest them!". On good faith, mind you.

The Chinese government has arrested a number of hackers suspected to have a hand in hacking U.S government in the past month.

The arrest has happened a week or two before the visit of the President Xi with Barak Obama in late September. The hackers have been identified by US official agencies and the list was handed to China. An official told the WP that US intelligence agencies came up with a list of names they want arrested and then gave it to the Chinese. He said they used it as a test to see if the country’s really determined to forge a set of cyberwarfare rules with the US, which would prevent either side from launching commercial espionage programs against each other.

My question. Since when does a hacker give out their names? Since when does a hacker, no, a LIST of hackers just make it so obvious that they give up their names so the US can just walk over to China and say, "Here are the names... We found them. You need to arrest them!". Does anyone realize that they've been searching for hackers here in the US based on CODE NAME alone and still haven't found them? The ones that have been found made dumb mistakes and the only way the others were found is AFTER the FBI pulled them in a room and made them give up the names of the others. AND... Smart hackers don't just give up their info. Their closest comrades in arms don't even know their real names. That's just not something a hacker does. The conversations are not:

Hey Bill, you and your sister coming over for tea today?

No... It's more like...

Hey $#azb@11. You have that thing for the 401?

So the rest of the fun comes from China actually cooperating with the US. Not only just cooperating, but on the ONE thing that they've been doing against the US for the last who knows how many years. Does This look familiar?

How about:

Since Russia and China are so buddy buddy, it kind of explains this as well...

Sorry, I just don't buy it one bit.

“We need to know that you’re serious,” was the way one individual familiar with the matter described the message. “So we gave them a list, and we said, ‘Look, here’s these guys. Round them up.’”

The new agreement between two countries was announced on 25 September providing both countries “with requests to investigate cybercrimes” and “collect electronic evidence”.

imagine the shock when the US found out upon checking on them, that they were in fact the paid Chinese hackers that the US themselves use to hack to China.

Whats the US going to do? claim the list is fake?

chess move by the Chinese..
Americas government is still busying reading the instructions!

With China's economic problems it has been making a major push to secure its most important relationship in the world, the US. It is very worried about the US and India not only from a military but, economic angle. When your biggest trade partner starts flirting with the rival next store you have to act.

Or...they were really hackers the Chinese government doesn't care much about. Hackers can be found and location pinpointed, even if they are very good.

Living in the Seattle area, the Chinese Premier made a visit before going on to meet with Obama, basically to announce the Boeing order and plans to build a boeing plant in China.(airbus already has a plant there and is building one in Alabama)

More importantly, the Premier then had a meeting with the top Hi-Tech CEOs in the U.S..

About a year ago, the head of the Chinese military was taken on a tour of facilities that thee and me will never see and was shown some of our capabilities...He stated in a news interview afterwards that China could not match the Hi-tech capabilities of the U.S..

Put it all together and China considers Hi-tech the major area they need improvement in. We're letting China get away with the South China Sea expansion. There are always Quid Pro Quos...

They misspelled POTUS name.

"President Xi with Barak Obama in late September."

Who hasn't figured it out yet that China and the US have too much in common to be enemies? Once you look at it that way, all this big brother stuff that's been going on in the US (and steadily getting worse) makes a lot more sense.

This cooperation probably has something to do with Chinese authorities wanting to arrest their citizens on American soil.

The Obama administration has delivered a warning to Beijing about the presence of Chinese government agents operating secretly in the United States to pressure prominent expatriates — some wanted in China on charges of corruption — to return home immediately, according to American officials.

The American officials said that Chinese law enforcement agents covertly in this country are part of Beijing’s global campaign to hunt down and repatriate Chinese fugitives and, in some cases, recover allegedly ill-gotten gains.

The Chinese government has officially named the effort Operation Fox Hunt.

Kind of a we'll let you do your thing if you help us out with our thing type of agreement.
