China will soon have the power to switch off the lights in the West

The year is 2050, and a diplomatic dispute between China and Britain risks escalating into all-out war. But rather than launching a barrage of ballistic missiles and jet fighters to destroy key British targets, Beijing has a far simpler plan for defeating its enemy. It simply turns off the lights.

At the flick of a switch elite teams of Chinese hackers attached to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) launch a hi-tech assault on Britain's computer systems, with devastating consequences. Within minutes the country's power stations, water companies, air traffic control, government and financial systems are totally shut down.

Britain's attempt to respond by launching nuclear-armed Trident missiles at China has to be abandoned, as the computer systems that control the weapons system are no longer functioning.

At a time when relations between China and Britain are supposed to be improving, the prospect of Beijing launching a cyber attack against Britain and its allies might seem to be the stuff of fantasy.

After all, it is only two years since Gordon Brown made a highly successful visit to Beijing where the two countries agreed to increase trade by 50 per cent by this year, and to cooperate on a range of issues, such as global warming. As one of the world's leading economic powers, China's role on the world stage has transformed dramatically over the past decade, with the huge wealth that Beijing has accumulated from its impressive economic growth playing a key role in supporting the global economy.

As a consequence Western policymakers have intensified their efforts to persuade China to draw on its economic prosperity and play a constructive role in world affairs, such as persuading North Korea and Iran to give up their controversial nuclear weapons programmes.

Some people have been claiming that China would never try to go against it's customers in the west, but with the actions of the Chinese government people can see that this is not so.

Although this article starts with a possible scenario in the future, for years now China, Russia, Iran, and other countries have been talking about a new world economy in which China, and Russia would be the main powers over this new economy, and they have been working hard to make this happen.

China has a lot of debt from the U.S., and whenever they want, and they will do it, they will get rid of the U.S. debt and will put the U.S. deeper into an econommic depression.

There have been several cyber attacks coming from China and most, if not all of them have been with the backing of the PLA, which controls China.

Some people claim that China has modernized, and it is different, that it is not Communist anymore, but these same people have no idea how a communist nation works.

Some influential people can make their own businesses, but what they don't know is that we KNOW a large percentage of the people who have been allowed to have a business are part of the PLA, and others have a connetion to it.

This is the same thing as what happens in other Communist countries where the leaders of the Communist party in a neighborhood have more access to better things, and more influence than regular people have. But these same people are true Communists who don't care about the other regular people, but rather about the continuation of the revolution and will do anything, and everything necessary to ensure that it survives.

Because of this the Chinese Communist Party saw that they needed to strenghten their party, and like always they needed new ways to make money and the best way to do this is through the die-hard Communists that exist in every Communist nation and will work to their deaths, for the most part, to ensure the continuation of the Communist regime.

China still doesn't allow unrestricted access for most of it's people to the internet, and websites like this one are off limits to most, except for PLA agents who like always are trying to change the image of the Chinese government with nothing more than exagerations, and even lies.

The following is an example of the influence these entrepeneurs have been having since at least the end of the 1980s.

The PLA/CCP don't care about the west and they still see the west as a threat they must one day take out. They have been doing this slowly by means of economic manipulation, continuous hacker attacks, and even use of terrorists to weaken the west.

Make no mistake, China is still a Communist country and will most probably remain so for a long time, and part of their plan is to take out the west at first economically, and then militarily.

great thread!

if people don't believe it that the people that own the majority of big businesses in China are affiliated to the Communist Party they need to have a good look at Eastern Europe. al the billionaires that virtually control all aspects of the economy and that sold of factories are former members of the communist secret services.

make no mistake about it. once communists take hold of a country they never loosen their grip, even after so-called revolutions.

Thanks, and you are right, but there are too many people that don't want to see what has been occurring, and they just don't care.

At the end people will believe what they want to believe nomatter what the evidence and facts say.
