This is VERY bad news to me. I have a thread somewhere in here about China using soft entry tactics to subvert our nation. This is yet another
They are not well known for money managing, just financial manipulations. Their banking ethics in China have been VERY contentious, putting great
strain on their worldly relations.
I am cross posing my material here. It is an important topic, and i appreciate the OP bringing this important info to our attention:
The investment will be Intel's another aggressive move in China shortly after it set up a large scale chip plant two months ago in Dalian, a port
city in northeast China's Liaoning Province, with a total of investment of USD 2.5 billion. (typo left from article
There is more out there that can be dug up about Intel, even just using GoogleNews.
But to set the scene, consider the above as the current state of affairs. This is where we currently are...backpage notifications and discussions in
Many here have heard of the Minot Incident? If not, review this link:
(thank you Azchuck for providing this wonderful link and discussion in this thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...
So, what we have is Chinese microchips ending up in government computers. This has already BEEN happening, as the Intel plant didn't roll out in
production until about two months ago (and there is a new one being built, with an entire city being built to support it...gotta love Chinese
Then, we start seeing all the headlines. I won't bother to post links. You all know what i am referring to: poisoned pet foods, lead in packaging

those Chinese goods.
Considering all that we are seeing, one has to wonder what is going on? We have invested considerable amounts of effort into outsourcing. It hasn't
been a big deal as long as it was manufacturing, as it allowed more Americans to get involved in business and technology sectors. But now technology
is moving offshore, too. And when this happens, business follows.
Has China figured out the formula? Are they weakening us via a spread attack? Our health (primarily our children) is being attacked, among other
This is particularly chilling when you consider the words of Gary McKinnon, the NASA hacker:
"Once you're on the network, you can do a command called NetStat - Network Status - and it lists all the connections to that machine. There were
hackers from Denmark, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Thailand ..."
"All on at once?" I ask. "You could see hackers from all over the world, snooping around, without the spaceniks or the military realising?"
"Every night," he says, "for the entire five to seven years I was doing this."
"Do you think they're still there? Are they still at it? Or have they been arrested, too?"
Gary says he doesn't know.
