Chinese National being Surveilled by FBI in Espionage Investigation

Why am I not surprised? A Chinese national living in the United States on a visa is under surveillance by the FBI after her boyfriend, a 59 year old defense contractor and Army Reserve Lt. Col, was arrested this week for disclosing classified information including secrets regarding nuclear weapons. The 27 year old is not under arrest at this time nor will the FBI confirm that she is a spy for the Chinese government but officials did...

Chinese Army Tied Directly to Most U.S. Hackings

In 2011 the United States made acts of hacking linked directly to a nation an act of war. It was part of a 30 page strategy to deal with cyber threats but the officials stressed that not all hacks would lead to war.

China’s “Scientific Experiments” Only Aircraft Carrier gets a Lot less Scientific

China’s only aircraft carrier, an old Soviet re-launch, doesn’t compare to America’s super carriers in the least but it is enough to make China’s carrier-less neighbors a little worried and China’s latest “scientific” test won’t ease that worry.

China Angers Asia with New Passports

If anyone thought that the regime change in China was going to douse water on the growing fire in the South and East China Seas then they were dead wrong.

Obama Forbids Chinese Purchase of “Wind Farm” Near Naval Base

China must have thought that they were being sneakier than they actually were when they decided they wanted to own and operate a wind farm that is positioned right next to a naval base that does testing on classified unmanned vehicles. Naval Weapons Systems Training Facility in Boardman, Oregon is a fairly secret facility that is rumored to have multiple drones on site as well as other aircraft that specialize in electronic warfare....
