I’ve loved Chinese insults ever since they called the S. Vietnamese the running dog lackeys of the capitalist, imperialist warmongers.

A ‘mincing rascal?’ I’ve always considered us more of a whimsical rapscallion personally…and on occasion we can be narcissistic nabobs.

“Suspending the operations of a bilateral group on cyber affairs is a reasonable start, but more countermeasures should be prepared…” – so how come suspending the operations of a BILATERAL group is a countermeasure? It sounds to me similar as the Russians once suspended adaptions of their poor orphanage kids as a countermeasure… against their poor orphanage kids, first and foremost. Just another commie propaganda trick.

That’s “adoption”, not “adaption” of course. :)

Having been trained in operations and intelligence, I wasn’t as surprised by the spying as by US AG Holder’s lack of understanding of communist versus capitalist systems. Holder was upset that the Chinese military hacked private US companies, proving that he does not know that private US companies BUILD our weapons. He cited steel workers, proving that he does NOT know that tanks, warplanes, and warships contain steel and steel alloys and that the war machines DON’T build themselves. It would be neat technology if it worked. He doesn’t know that Chinese spies would give data to state owned firms, so he dosn’t know that communist war machines are built in state owned firms. Free enterprise firms versus state owned firms are the main differences between the US and communist countries. You would think that a person who, in one part of his job, must catch spies would know how it works in the two different systems. This does not look good for the US AG’s ability to catch spies from other countries that have other economic systems.
