Spies, Spies, Spies, Yeah. They Gonna Get You!

25 Jun

The China Digital Times picked up on a story in Britain’s Telegraph newspaper on China’s voracious appetite for spying.  According to the article, China, aka the Chinese Communist Party, has opened up a series of National Intelligence Colleges on campuses throughout China.   MI5, Britain’s equivalent of the CIA, believes, according to the article, that China, aka the Chinese government, aka the Chinese Communist Party, represents one of the most significant espionage threats to the U.K.

In a related article in the Telegraph, a comment like this from “Buzz” makes fun of the British government’s concerns and frustrations with
the onslaught of Chinese espionage that is now threatening Britain’s national infrastructure:

MI5 are so concerned about the hacking threat that they have just started developing code to counter it. The programming has been outsourced to an Indian company which in turn has outsourced it to a Chinese company.

Ha! LOL!  And speaking of outsourcing, the US-China Economic and Security Commission recently held a hearing on just this subject regarding “China’s Five-Year Plan, Indigenous Innovation and Technology Transfers, and  Outsourcing.”

The Telegraph article highlights the story of Chinese espionage by noting that with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s upcoming visit on Monday with Britain’s prime minister, “both men already know that their countries are in a state of undeclared war.”

If James Bond got them into this mess, then maybe Austin Powers can get them out.  Yeah, baby!
