Why The Next War With China Could Go Very Badly For The United States
by Michael, The American Dream
May 28, 2013

Most Americans assume that the U.S. military is so vastly superior to
everyone else that no other nation would ever dream of fighting a
full-scale war against us. Unfortunately, that assumption is dead
wrong. In recent years, the once mammoth technological gap between
the U.S. military and the Chinese military has been closing at a
frightening pace. China has been accomplishing this by brazenly
stealing our technology and hacking into our computer systems. The
Pentagon and the Obama administration know all about this, but they
don’t do anything about it. Perhaps the fact that China owns about
a trillion dollars of our national debt has something to do with that.
In any event, today China has the largest military in the world and
the second largest military budget in the world. They have stolen
plans for our most advanced jets, helicopters, ships and missile
systems. It is estimated that stealing our technology has saved China
about 25 years (
) of research and development. In addition, China is rapidly
developing a new generation of strategic weapons that could
potentially enable it to actually win a future war against the United
States. At one time such a notion would have been unthinkable, but as
you will see below, the next war with China could go very badly for
the United States.
The Washington Post (
) is reporting on a confidential report that was prepared for the
Pentagon, and what this report says about the extent of Chinese cyber
espionage is absolutely startling. Will China know ALL of our secrets
at some point? The following is a brief excerpt from the Washington
Post article (
) about the theft of our military technology by China. It turns out
that Chinese hackers have gotten their hands on plans for almost all
of the new cutting edge weapons systems that we have been
Some of the weapons form the backbone of the Pentagon’s regional
missile defense for Asia, Europe and the Persian Gulf. The designs
included those for the advanced Patriot missile system, known as
PAC-3; an Army system for shooting down ballistic missiles, known as
the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD; and the Navy’s
Aegis ballistic-missile defense system.
Also identified in the report are vital combat aircraft and ships,
including the F/A-18 fighter jet, the V-22 Osprey, the Black Hawk
helicopter and the Navy’s new Littoral Combat Ship, which is
designed to patrol waters close to shore.
Also on the list is the most expensive weapons system ever built —
the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, which is on track to cost about $1.4
One military expert that the Washington Post showed the report to was
absolutely stunned…
“That’s staggering,” said Mark Stokes, executive director of the
Project 2049 Institute, a think tank that focuses on Asia security
issues. “These are all very critical weapons systems, critical to
our national security. When I hear this in totality, it’s
The experts said the cybertheft creates three major problems. First,
access to advanced U.S. designs gives China an immediate operational
edge that could be exploited in a conflict. Second, it accelerates
China’s acquisition of advanced military technology and saves
billions in development costs. And third, the U.S. designs can be used
to benefit China’s own defense industry. There are long-standing
suspicions that China’s theft of designs for the F-35 fighter
allowed Beijing to develop its version much faster.
But it isn’t just hackers that the U.S. military needs to be
concerned about. The truth is that the Chinese are stealing secrets
from us any way that they can. For example, the Chinese use attractive
young women to seduce our defense contractors. In fact, as the
Washington Times (
) recently reported, one 59-year-old American man was recently charged
with passing very sensitive secrets to a 27-year-old Chinese
“honeypot” that he was seeing…
A U.S. defense contractor who works in intelligence at the
military’s Pacific Command (
http://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/pacific-command/ ) in Hawaii has
been charged with passing classified national security information to
a 27-year-old Chinese woman he was dating.
Benjamin Pierce Bishop (
http://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/benjamin-pierce-bishop/ ), 59,
is accused of sending the woman an email in May with information on
Pacom’s war plans, nuclear weapons and U.S. relations with
international partners, according to the complaint filed in U.S.
District Court in Honolulu and unsealed Monday.
The complaint goes on to allege that Mr. Bishop (
http://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/benjamin-pierce-bishop/ ) told
the woman over the telephone in September about the deployment of U.S.
nuclear weapons and about the ability of the U.S. to detect other
nations’ short- and medium-range ballistic missiles.
Another way that China is gaining a strategic advantage over the U.S.
is by getting the U.S. military to become increasingly dependent upon
them. According to Forbes (
), now the U.S. military is even leasing a Chinese satellite for
communications purposes…
American dependence on China grows by the day. The latest news (
) is that the United States has been reduced to leasing a Chinese
satellite to handle communications with U.S. military bases in Africa.
Surprising, isn’t it? The nation that launched the world’s first
communications satellite (I remember it well – it was called
Telstar) has so lost its manufacturing mojo that it has to rely on its
most formidable military adversary to provide the hardware for some of
its most sensitive communications. This at a time when underlying
unemployment rates among U.S. manufacturing workers remain at
near-depression levels.
Isn’t that crazy?
And a recent Senate report discovered that many of our most advanced
weapons systems are absolutely riddled (
) with counterfeit Chinese parts…
A recent Senate report, titled Inquiry Into Counterfeit Electronic
Parts In The Department Of Defense Supply Chain (
), “uncovered overwhelming evidence of large numbers of counterfeit
parts making their way into critical defense systems.”
The investigation found 1,800 cases of counterfeit electronic parts
involving over one million suspect parts in 2009-10 alone, thereby
exposing “a defense supply chain that relies on hundreds of unveiled
independent distributors to supply electronic parts for some of our
most sensitive systems.”
The report concluded (
), among other things, that China is the “dominant source” of
counterfeit products that enter the DoD supply chain, that the Chinese
government does little to stop it and that the DoD doesn’t know the
“scope and impact” of these parts on critical defense systems.
Who in the world would be stupid enough to allow one of their greatest
strategic enemies to supply large numbers of parts for key weapons
Apparently we are that stupid.
Things are particularly bad when it comes to semiconductors (
Senator John McCain commented: “We can’t tolerate the risk of a
ballistic missile interceptor failing to hit its target, a helicopter
pilot unable to fire his missiles, or any other mission failure
because of a counterfeit part.” Calling the issue “a ticking time
bomb,” Brian Toohey, president of the Semiconductor Industry
Association, commented: “The catastrophic failure risk inherently
found in counterfeit semiconductors places our citizens and military
personnel in unreasonable peril.”
It would be bad enough if we just had to worry about counterfeit parts
failing. But what if China has a way to shut some of those parts down
in the event of a conflict? What if some of those parts contain
“Trojan Horse” computer chips or malware?
That may sound crazy, but unfortunately Trojan Horse chips can be
extremely difficult to detect. The following is from a recent Forbes
article (
As the Defense Science Board pointed out, Trojan Horse circuitry is
almost impossible to detect even with the most rigorous analysis. This
is particularly so if a saboteur can accomplish matching subversions
in both software and relevant hardware.
And as I mentioned above, China is rapidly developing a vast array of
new strategic weapons which may enable it to actually win the next war
with the United States. For example, China has been developing a new
generation (
) of inter-continental and submarine-launched nuclear missiles. The
submarine-launched missiles (
are of particular concern…

The Ju Lang-2 intercontinental missile is the second generation of
Chinese submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
It’s a closely held secret, and details are sketchy. If it lives up
to what public military intelligence says it is, it’s a huge get for
China, especially with their new sub fleet.
The missile is believed to have a range of 8,000 km, and can carry
conventional or nuclear warheads.
Do you remember a few years ago when a Chinese sub fired a missile
from just off the west coast of the United States (
http://www.wnd.com/2010/11/230425/ )? We didn’t know that the sub
was there. If that missile had been fired at Los Angeles it would
have been destroyed long before we could have ever responded.
And don’t think that a first strike by either China or Russia is
inconceivable. As I have written about previously, the U.S. strategic
nuclear arsenal has already been reduced by about 95 percent (
), and Obama seems absolutely determined to whittle it down even more.
In fact, there has been talk that the Obama administration ultimately
wants to reduce our arsenal down to just 300 warheads (
). If Russia or China knows exactly where those warheads are, it
would be very easy to take them out in less than 10 minutes with a
submarine-based first strike.
And China has also reportedly been developing very sophisticated EMP
weapons. The following is from a WND (
) report…
In 2011, it was first revealed that China was developing EMP weapons
to be used against U.S. aircraft carriers in any future conflict,
especially over Taiwan, according to a 2005 National Ground
Intelligence Center study.
That center study said the Chinese were developing a family, or
“assassin’s mace” of EMP and high-powered microwave, or HPM,
weapons to be used by a technologically inferior force such as
China’s, against U.S. military forces.
The once secret but now declassified study pointed out that the
Chinese could detonate an EMP weapon some 30 to 40 kilometers over
Taiwan or – by inference – a U.S. carrier strike group – and
destroy the electronics capability on which U.S. network-centric
strategy depends.
But an EMP weapon does not have to be a high-altitude weapon that
affects a large area. Smaller scale EMP weapons could take out a wave
of fighter jets or a carrier fleet. In a future conflict with China,
we could see U.S. planes falling out of the sky or great naval vessels
sitting dead in the water after being hit with EMP blasts.
But isn’t China our friend?
That is what most Americans and most American politicians seem to
believe. They seem to think that China is our “buddy” and
“trading partner” and that we will never have a military conflict
with China.
But that is NOT how the Chinese see things.
The Chinese regard the United States as their greatest strategic
threat and as an enemy that needs to be vanquished. That is why they
are constantly spying on us, hacking into our computers and stealing
our technology. That is why they are feverishly building up their
military and preparing for a future war with America.
So what do you think?
Do you believe that war with China is in our future?
If so, do you think that we will win?

Police Dilemma

You're on duty by yourself walking on a deserted street late at night.

Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife comes around the corner,
locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and lunges
at you.
You are carrying a Glock 40 and you are an expert shot, however you
have only
a split second to react before he reaches you. What do you do?


Firstly the officer must consider the man's Human Rights.

1) Does the man look poor or oppressed?
2) Is he newly arrived in this country and does not yet understand the
3) Is this really a knife or a ceremonial dagger?
4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
5) Am I dressed provocatively?
6) Could I run away?
7) Could I possibly swing my gun like a club and knock the knife out
of his hand?
8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong doings?
9) Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
10) Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message
does this send to society?
11) Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to
wound me?
12) If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to
stab and kill me?
13) If I raise my gun and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if
he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? .
14) If I shoot and wound him, and lose the subsequent court case, does
he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and
the loss of my family home?


(Sergeant arrives at scene later and remarks: 'Nice grouping!').

The Labour Shortage Myth

The Labour Shortage Myth
“The number of immigrants to Canada in 2010 was the highest for a
single year during the past 60 years. The left has made a strong case
for why the temporary foreign worker programme needs a complete
overhaul. It points out that employers use the programme to fill
Canadian jobs and suppress wages and, while Canadians are the
best-trained workers in the industrial world, 1.4 million of them are
officially unemployed and the so-called skills crisis is a
self-serving myth. All of this sounds quite convincing. The question
has to be asked, however, why the left is not equally concerned about
the impact on Canadians of the huge numbers of foreign workers allowed
to come here as regular immigrants. It is fair enough to point out
that temporary foreign workers are much more vulnerable than permanent
residents to exploitation by recruiters and employers since their
continued stay in Canada is linked to staying in the job they were
brought here to do. This aside, however, why do we need so many
immigrant workers if the so-called skills crisis is a myth? We need
to address the issue of meeting skill shortages if we are to realize
our economic potential.

Should we not, however, first look at best use of our existing human
resources before resorting to bringing in workers from overseas on
either a temporary or permanent basis? Granted, achieving this is
easier said than done. One of the most obvious issues is the mismatch
between the education and skills that many of our young people are
acquiring and the demands of the marketplace. We should be looking
critically at the extent to which public funds are used to underwrite
education in areas where there is a surplus of qualified people and
where there are limited prospects of gainful employment or
contributions to the economy. Further to this, we need more flexible
training and apprenticeship programmes that respond to needs of the
economy and there has to be more investment by employers in training,
recruitment and retention (another area where Canada´s record is
wanting). Also, how do we bring more aboriginals into the workforce
and best utilize the skills and experience of older workers as the
population ages and mature workers remain healthy, active and
increasingly keen to continue working? Also important is reform of
employment insurance so it does not act as an impediment to full
participation in the labour force. If Canada were to address all of
these issues in a serious manner, we could significantly reduce the
dependency on both temporary and permanent foreign labour.

Implementing these measures will not be simple either on a political
or practical level, and developing solutions will involve careful
planning and considerable time. What we need is a comprehensive
national labour strategy to utilize more efficiently all of our
existing labour potential before resorting to importing foreign
workers. This is not to suggest that we put a stop to immigration but
that we regard it as complementing the best use of our existing
resources rather than an end in itself. While such a policy will
encounter strong opposition from the right who benefit from high
intake of foreign workers and the resultant suppression of wages, it
can also expect to encounter mixed reactions from the left that
understandably has problems with the temporary foreign worker
programme and yet fails to acknowledge the equally negative impact on
Canadian workers of our unnecessarily high immigration levels.”
