Be afraid. Be very afraid.
My recent trip to Asia caused me to do a little investigating of India's behemoth neighbor, the Peoples Republic of China.
Like the proverbial frog that calmly sits in a pot of water without noticing that the cook is making frog-leg soup, we as Americans have gone about our lives distracted by football games and reality shows while our national interest is destroyed by one of the cruelest dictatorships in history.
It's bad enough that the Chinese government's one-child-per-couple policy has resulted in over 450 million abortions carried out at the point of a Chinese military revolver.
The worst part of it is that we are willingly walking into the Chinese buzz saw like zombies under the control of a Mongolian master.
The latest revelations involve the Chinese government's control of the Internet and computer manufacturing.
A few years ago the Chinese government formed a new division of the their military operation dedicated solely to cyber warfare.
On the island of Hainan, off the Chinese coast in the Gulf of Tonkin, there resides a gigantic army of well- trained military who spend all their time hacking into computers and computer controlled security systems throughout the world.
The Chinese have accumulated a list of the most important American military information technology systems and various private computer systems with information critical to our national security.
This conglomeration of vital computer controlled systems is referred to as the GhostNet. The Chinese have directed these government employees to hack into the GghostNet in order to maintain a perpetual advantage over the defense systems of the United States.
The potential is terrifying.
They know as much about White House operations as the Secret Service.
It may be that as of this very moment the Secretary of Defense of the United States of America lacks the ability to control the deployment of computer-controlled rocket systems.
These people are not our friends.
This next item is also quite chilling.
Steve Jobs' beloved Apple Corporation and thousands of other computer manufacturers continue to outsource computer assembly and fabrication to factories in the People's Republic of China.
With the authoritarian government of Communist China regulating factories, it is feared that the Chinese-made computers are all equipped with a doomsday chip buried somewhere in the central processing unit of every computer they make.
This Trojan horse scheme would allow the Chinese government to shut down, monitor, or even take over computer activity at the Pentagon and even that laptop you use at Starbucks to catch up on the success of your fantasy baseball team.
Remember Tiananmen Square?
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Stop inviting him into your home.
