Well, somebody (reasonably) high in the hierarchy is finally noticing.
FBI's problems are shared by all the other U.S. government agencies, though in somewhat different forms.
China is well aware (as is U.S. and every other serious government out there, but they don't admit it because all hell would break loose) of a very
high probability of resource/energy wars occuring by the middle of this century.
Oil, food, water... all of them strategic resources, and all of them very, very limited in an expanding world. "The survival of the fittest", and
all that crap we were taught in schools, remember?
What China is doing is a simple strategic move - collect all the information you can about your enemy, send (electronic) spies and (electronic)
sleepers over to the enemy, observe and... wait. The moment will eventually come to use those sleepers to bring down enemy's communication lines.
In case you are not aware, communication lines are the first casualties, and The Primary Targets of any war. Make your enemy blind and deaf, and he
cannot defend himself.
People should read "The Art of War" at least once in their lives. There is absolutely nothing new in such strategy. It's been around for at least
500 years (and much longer in the forgotten history). The means change, but the strategies are forever.
Here are just a few examples of what other agencies and foreign governments are facing:
On the bright side, it seems that at least some of my posts have caught attention of some of the alphabet agencies out there. A very specific thread
on another forum got deleted (which is something that has never
happened there in almost 3 years) which dealt with exactly this problem with
China. Well, actually, it was a mixed bag of different matters, but the main point was the recent downing of that U.S. spy satelite which stopped
working for unknown reasons (the one U.S. had to shoot down).
This is just my wild guess, but I have a feeling Chinese were experimenting with directed EMP, and simply missed one of their own satelites. Well,
mistakes happen... like the one with the first low orbit test of nuclear weapons in 50's (or was it 60's...? I'm too lazy to look it up right now
) when U.S. immediatelly (and unintentionally) destroyed 2 of its own spy satelites, and badly damaged a couple of others (also U.S.).
In some matters, China is way "ahead" of U.S. They don't have to worry about intellectual rights (or even human rights for that matter), they have
absolute control of their part of the Internet (through The Great Firewall of China
), have almost perfectly controlled society (they can
relocate a milion people in a month, how's that for efficiency?!), and they are smart (at least several thousands of years of history behind
What I've just described is every secret society's perfect dream... which makes me wonder if U.S. is being staged for takeover. Or, to put it in the
right context - "liberation by the superior Chinese culture". I've heard something about that propaganda being used in Tibet takeover. Not that
Tibet was much better in treating its own people (they had a debt slave system
almost exactly the same you have in the U.S. right now
what a historical coincidence!), but two wrongs don't make it right.
The strategies being played out on this planet are so interesting... and dumb, but that's what makes them so interesting.
