China’s Military Built with Cloned Weapons

Historically, China has been a great innovator contributing inventions such as gunpowder, paper and the compass to human advancement. However, China has earned an international reputation in recent decades as being the home of a prolific copycat culture.

The Chinese have become proficient at cloning products ranging from designer handbags and the latest smartphones to movies and alcoholic beverages. Fake Apple stores, counterfeit KFC restaurants and imitation IKEA big-box outlets dot the Chinese landscape. They have even built entire replica European towns.

Some Western observers believe this cultural attitude towards imitation is rooted in Confucianism where followers traditionally learned by replicating masterworks and then tried to improve upon them.

The fact that the Chinese commonly refer to today’s imitation products as “Shanzhai” indicates that they recognize the dubious nature of the current practice. The term “Shanzhai” translates to “mountain stronghold” and was originally applied to pirate factories producing counterfeit goods in remote areas beyond the reach of regulatory control.

The copycat business is no longer restricted to outlying lawless regions. It has entered the mainstream and been embraced by government officials who seem content to allow other nations to develop products and technology which they can then acquire legitimately through licensing or illegitimately through counterfeiting and espionage. This approach allows China to stay competitive on the world stage while saving them the time and money it would cost to develop their own products.

An industry in which Chinese cloning has excelled to a disconcerting degree is the manufacture of weapon systems. China’s expanding military and growing assertiveness has been bolstered by weapons cloned from the arsenals of other countries. Bleeding edge U.S. aircraft including the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and Northrop Grumman X-47B unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) have Chinese counterparts that are remarkably similar. Some of the technology used in these designs was almost certainly acquired through a vigorous Chinese cyber spying campaign.

U.S. Defense officials have stated that Chinese military hackers undertaking “technical reconnaissance” have succeeded in pilfering highly classified technical documents on a number of occasions. The sensitive technical data that is known to have been compromised is now evident in the latest versions of several Chinese weapons.

Officials also suspect that China has managed to obtain valuable technical advances by making backroom deals with U.S. allies that bought American weapons. It is for this reason that the U.S. decided not to export the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor stealth fighter.

It is not only American weapon designs and technology that have been stolen and replicated by the Chinese. Russia has at times served as China’s unwitting research and development department. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia was in need of money and held a fire sale of its state of the art Sukhoi Su-27 fighter. China bought two dozen of the fighters but later negotiated for a license to assemble additional planes domestically using key components imported from Russia. Within a few years China claimed that the fighter no longer met their needs and canceled the contract. To the fury of the Russians, the Chinese soon debuted the indigenously built and equipped Shenyang J-11B fighter that looks identical to the Su-27.

Russia continued to use Chinese money from arms sales to develop new technology, which China then stole. After several deals in which the Chinese quickly reversed engineered Russian weapons to produce their own versions, Russia finally wised up and began to reject Chinese requests to purchase single examples of their most advanced systems on a “trial” basis.

To add salt to Russia’s wounds, China is now exporting knockoff weapons to the international market and undercutting Russia’s own arms trade in the process. But like a counterfeit Louis Vuitton handbag with a faulty zipper, Chinese clone weapons may be more style over performance.

“I think the big issue with all Chinese weapons – including copies of Western equipment – is that they remain untested in combat,” Eric Wertheim author of U.S. Naval Institute’s Combat Fleets of the World and a naval analyst said.
“We just don’t know how they will perform, so while they may be far less expensive than their western counterparts, many countries are understandably reluctant to take the risk of acquiring products that haven’t passed the ultimate test of combat. I expect that some of these systems are likely to perform as advertised while others may significantly underperform compared to their western counterparts.”

Although Chinese clone weapons may not yet posses the quality and capabilities of the originals, several U.S. military and industry officials have expressed concern that the ongoing sophisticated cyber espionage campaign will allow China to rapidly improve their arsenal and even soon produce aircraft that will match all aspects of US fifth generation fighters like the F-22 and F-35.

These examples illustrate the extent to which the Chinese military has relied upon weapons developed by other nations:

      Why hack?

      Sure, there’s a vetting process for industry and back ground investigations for clearances in the DoD/Gov but let’s not be so naïve to think that the Chinese don’t have an industrial espionage program in place that takes advantage of the U.S. governments “diversity” requirement.

      • Marion Mitchell Morrison

        Absolutely correct. I have seen it in action.
        Anyone who has worked in China knows that they have perfected the art of stealing from western companies, and have a supporting victim ideology to justify it. Why anyone does business with them beats me. Deals with the devil. From their point of view, they have gone from dirt poor (their own damn fault) to 2nd largest economy in 1 generation, and they’re proud of it.

    • nvrat

      You beat me to it. Yes Bubba Clinton sold computers, weapons programs and some weapons designed to china in the late 80`s. General Motors was one of the providers for computers and system`s designs after they (GM) purchased Hughes Aircraft Co. in 1982. Yes, I was a Hughes employee and later a GM employee before retiring in the 90`s and remember asking why our congress did nothing to stop the sale.

        The Russian military needs uranium, to. Who are we to keep our uranium to ourselves? how selfish to redistribute the wealth, but not the uranium!

        • Woody

          Iran needs uranium also. Hillary helped provide it.
          Hillary’s deal sent Uranium to Russia, but also increased supply so Russia could make it available to Iran too.

          • Secundius

            @ Woody.

            Russian own’s about 20% of the US Uranium Reserves. Why would Hillary need to send or sell any to Russia…

          • Woody

            Are you familiar with the many accusation against the Clintons and their slush fund charity groups where Hillary as SecState would approve items helpful to foreign governments after Bill Clinton made speeches in these countries and collected huge speaking fees and these governments and foreign citizens would make multi-million dollar donations to clinton charity funds?
            SecState Hillary, after past denials, approved the partial sale of Canadian uranium mining companies to Russia after receiving campaign and charity donations from these companies and executive personnel.
            This increases the supply of uranium available to Russia, which is bad enough considering the new cold war emerging.
            My position is that this increased supply of uranium would also make it easier for Russia to sell uranium to Iran for their nuclear weapons production.
            My reply was partially joking in reply to MaryEllen’s joking reply, but understand that Hillary did not directly sell uranium to Russia, she approved the partial sale of the uranium companies to Russia, which increases Russian supplies of uranium.
            Hillary didn’t “need to send or sell…”, she collected huge BRIBES to approve the sale even though it is harmful to US national security.

      True, it was revealed President Clinton received $300,000 in campaign contributions from the Chinese communist military at the time that he ignored repeated warnings of Chinese espionage and stealing of our nuclear technology.

      Good old Willie, had some of the most sophisticated rocket technology de-classified from Top Secret Military to Commercial status. Before this occurred, the Chinese couldn’t get a rocket off the pad before it blew up, after the de-classification they went to space. The basis of the Clinton Foundation, we’ll be left completely exposed if we’re not already!

      Sorry, I posted this before reading the post by Maryellen DIgregorio.

    • Daily Gut Check

      I seem to recall Bill Clinton allowed the sale and transfer of protected technology, including 5-axis cnc milling machines, a tool necessary to make navigational systems for ICBM’s.

      I believe under Obama’s watch that one of our top secret drones conveniently “landed” in Iran without being self-destructed… so the Iranians could give it to the Chinese to copy.

      • linda

        i remember some huge factory in Ohio, worth $13 billion, and the employees actually tried to buy the factory, but Clinton’s commerce dept. negated the deal and sold the same factory, lock stock and barrel, to the Chinese for $3-4 billion. If that is not seditionist, what is?

          Also this, where the Obama Administartion leaked the existence of virus software used to slow down Iran’s nuclear weapon program:

          “The effort, involving the National Security Agency, the CIA and Israel’s military, has included the use of destructive software such as the so-called Stuxnet virus to cause malfunctions in Iran’s nuclear enrichment equipment.”

          Again, Obama sabotages national security with no consequences and again enables Iran.

          Further, the the GOP and Jews never remembers this stuff.

        It was under Bush I that Toshiba sold the Soviets the 5-axis milling machine required to manufacture quiet submarined screws (propeller). It wasn’t Clinton and it wasn’t the US.

        • Daily Gut Check

          LOL! Yeah, right. Sorry, that’s not what I am speaking of.

          If you work in DOD, then you know better than what you just presented. Remember Chinagate? Bad memory or just a Leftist Clint0n apologist?

          Clint0n should, at a minimum. be in a Federal prison right now for the national security damages he created, sab0taging our national security. If there were justice in America, both Clint0n’s would have been treated as trait0rs worse than the Rosenbergs. Instead, Left!sts excuse and fawn over them.

          G00gle: “Sen. Inhofe Documents Clinton’s Culpability in Chinagate” from Center For Security Policy June 24th, 1999:

          ” In 1994, President Clint0n ended COCOM, the Coordinating Committee on Multinational Export Control, the multi-nation agreement among U.S. friends and allies that they would not sell certain high technology items to countries like China.

          When this happened, it opened the commercial floodgates. Ever since, there has been a wild scramble of competition to sell more and more advanced technology to China. As a result, proliferation has never been worse than it has been in the last six years. ”

          G00gle: The “C* O* X (minus asterisks and spaces) Report”, which Sen. Jim Inhofe said “conclusively documents– (Clint0n) has “harmed” national security. From that report:

          ” Observers of the PRC’s machine tool capabilities do not believe that the PRC can indigenously produce high precision, five-axis machines that approach the quality of
          Western products.

          The U.S. General Accounting Office estimates that the PRC has the capability “to manufacture less sophisticated machine tools, but cannot currently mass produce four- and five-axis machine tools that meet Western standards.”

          According to a 1996 Defense Department assessment, however, the PRC’s indigenous machine tool production capability is increasing markedly.

          The PRC has long sought to compensate for its deficiencies in machine tool technology by importing foreign systems. This approach has been facilitated by CO*C*OM’s (minus asterisks) dissolution and the resulting international relaxation of controls on machine tool exports.

          Since the end of CO*C*OM (minus asterisks) in March 1994, PRC military industries have acquired advanced machine tools that would be useful for the production of rocket and missile guidance components, and several five-axis machines for fighter aircraft and parts production. Five-axis machines were controlled under CO*C*OM (minus asterisks) and are purportedly controlled by Wassenaar. U.S. industry sources note that:

          “China has proved able to buy [machine tools] from a variety of foreign makers in Japan and Europe. Between 1993 and 1996, fifteen large, 5-axis machine tools were purchased by Chinese end users, all fifteen were made by Western European manufacturers.”

          Furthermore, Shenyang Aircraft purchased twelve 5-axis machine tools [in 1997]. These machine tools came from Italian, German and French factories. “

      And let’s not forget the shady uranium deal that benefited the Russians.

      • Woody

        Hillary’s shady uranium deal not only benefited the Russians, it would have allowed an increased supply on the world market- available to Russian friends- such as Iran.
        Iran recently announced finding large reserves of uranium, but it’s still easier to buy it than mine it. Especially if you’re trying to obtain large amounts for your warhead production line.

      • Andrew Interrupted

        There was a uranium deal where the U.S. bought weapons grade nuclear material from the crumbling soviet empire in exchange for commercial reactor fuel. The program was called “MegaTons to MegaWatts”. A seldom mentioned government success story.

        • Volitans

          I remember that program. What the Clintons did in this case appears to have been a quid pro quo money grab and not comparable to the “MegaTons to MegaWatts” program, which had the good of the country as its focus.

            The average I.Q. of certain sectors of society, ones who enjoy the “knock out” game and 95% voted to re-elect Obama, in particular, is a grand 85 I.Q. Whereas the average I.Q. of the people forced to pay the 85 I.Q. people’s bills, is a 105 I.Q. Yet, certain higher paying jobs (in particular in government) are increasingly given to the 85 I.Q. people so as to give them the appearance of success. And to demoralize and make hopeless the pursuits of the 105 I.Q. people.

        The Chinese have been worming their way into every nook and cranny of the U.C. system since the 60s. Recall the Wen Ho Lee fiasco, when the smoke cleared the Chinese had our small nuclear warhead designs, the investigative procedures were so botched up that no one could really tell who did what. Lee plead guilty to a single charge and walked. Janet Reno left office insisting he was guilty spy; Clinton left talking out of both sides of his mouth and straining to associate himself with the Chinese ethnic activist types shrieking that the whole thing was due to racism against Chinese. It all really started when Clinton’s DOE appointee Hazel O’Leary breezed through the weapons labs and proclaimed that the different colored security badges to designate layers of security were “discriminatory”.

        Liberals are going to get us all killed.

      • John C

        Nope, not when it comes to military hardware. Bush, of whom I am no fan, isn’t responsible for the transfer of military secrets to China, that lies strictly with Clinton and Obama. Jobs to China,on the other hand are the responsibility of Poppy Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr. and Obama.

        • Freeway

            He was a typical one worlder. Don’t forget Daddy Bush is a screaming failure and a Liberal, so he’s pushing his kids in the same direction. Reagan’s biggest mistake was having daddy Bush as his vice President. No one from that family should ever be elected to the White House again.

      The Clinton’s were horrible with this but the George W. Bush administration allowed the sale of near perfect ball bearing technology to the Chinese which was a duel use technology. It could be used for improved control for civilian jet aircraft or ICBM’s. Both parties have their head up their tush out of either greed or stupidity.

      • William Romano

        I’m not sure that’s true, but even if it were, there’s a big difference between opening up for commerce and selling them our military hardware just to get more campaign contributions from a foreign government… which is highly illegal… but still stealthfully done by the Clintons… who think they are above the law… because the law was only made for the rest of us and not for the entitled Queen “my shlt don’t stink” Hillary… even though she is a piece of human dung.

    • Mel_Anosis

      Yes, that fellow traveler Chung under the Clintons was responsible for much of it. Instead of chasing interns in the Oval Office Clinton should have been focusing on Chinese espionage. I’m sue Mr Hope and Change Obama cares also about China stealing military secrets…….after all, Obama doesn’t like the military superiority of the USA. Part of his fundamental transformation of America…..make us a second rate military power.

      I lived in China for 7yrs. I can tell you first hand they copy everything. They have only a very small national brand lineup. They have purchased many brand names. Example, 51 percent of Volvo is Chinese owned.

  • publius_maximus_III

    My guess is the copying is not being done out of necessity, just because it is faster, easier, and cheaper. A study of standardized test scores done back in the 1990’s (published as a book entitled “The Bell Curve”) compared IQ distributions for different populations — Eastern Asians came out on top. So it’s not because of a lack of brainpower that they do this. Maybe articles like this one will shame them into stopping their espionage? NOT

    We need to do a much better job of cyber security. For one thing, we ought to -STOP- transmitting sensitive material between various military sites and defense contractors using phone lines, broadband, microwaves, and radio transmissions — all of which can become a ready conduit of information to hackers. Our newer generation of designers have become complacent and enjoy the convenience of logging into work over a cup of coffee and a Danish at home. A new way of transporting information between different locations needs to be devised — maybe DVD’s transferred daily by secure drones or couriers? If there is nothing to hack, then the hacker is left out in the cold.

    Continuing what we are doing today is just asking for more of the same unsatisfactory results tomorrow…

Just like how all of those Wall Street firms and banks who engage in all types of illegal behavior and the worst that usually happens is some “rogue trader” or some other “rogue” element within the organization get’s all the blame, meanwhile the very organization itself is rotten to the core. I’ve never understood how the whole Loral thing wasn’t an act of treason itself. It was bribery through and through.

      • HosedInAmerica

        It was just “Free Trade”. “The merchant has no country other than the ground upon which he stands to sell his goods.” I believe Thomas Jefferson was responsible for this bit of brilliance!

  • Confused

    These designs weren’t stolen. The Clinton administration SOLD these technologies for 8 years while they were in office in the 90s. The 2nd Clinton Administration (while Hillary was head of State Dept.) continued to sell these technologies. This is what you get with a Clinton. See how many millions of dollars have flowed from China into the Democrat Campaign Committee, into the Clinton Foundation and into Bill and Hillary’s bank accounts in the form of “donations and speaking fees.” Sick!

  • mroadster

    People who transfer military technology to any foreign power, either through sale or theft, should be publicly tried and summarily executed for treason. That would deter some of the theft.

    We did it when scientists were caught transferring atomic technology to the Russians, it is still useful for today.

    Foreign spies masquerading as scientists in the defense industry need to be identified and have unfortunate “accidents” befall them (after being properly interrogated, by whatever means necessary).

    The green card program for defense industry needs to be ended. We are training our adversaries.

  • victor_whisky

    Rest easy, the Chinese will never copy the F-35. At over 300 million each, it is a known fact the F-35 is a gigantically overpriced dog that can be taken down by Vietnam era fighters. As a real fighter, it comes no where near in matching the performance of it’s predecessor, the F-16. In mock dogfights with Russian aircraft, both real and computer generated scenarios, it lost every time. And as a ground support aircraft, it is less accurate the the old A-10.

    It was supposed to be a multi task (compromised), aircraft that can not do any of its tasks well and mostly designed and engineered to be a huge money stream for the Wall Street run industrial military complex.

    • Paolo Moleman

      +100
      If the Chinese are smart, they will keep copying Russian stuff. The F-35 is junk. Also Pierre Sprey who worked on the F-16 and A-10 with Colonel Boyd and Col Riccioni has said stealth is a scam. It can be seen by long wave radar.

      • victor_whisky

        To demonstrate what a scam the military complex is, they had the V-22 Osprey in development since the late 1950’s or early sixties. It would never work due to its complexity and it wasn’t until they got micro computers in the mid 80’s did they manage to make it a stable flying platform. The military really did not want it, but the industrial military complex and their paid politicians kept pushing it.

        All you have to do is shoot off one engine or simply damage the tip of one propeller to get it off balance and the whole thing will crash. And supposing the control mechanism is damaged and you can’t rotate the engines to vertical to hover into the landing configurations, those propellers are so huge, you wouldn’t be able to land it like an airplane. Billions and billions were wasted on this impractical aircraft.

    • dp

      Compromise will assure that you will never win anything.

      • victor_whisky

        Compromise works in business and politics, doesn’t work on fighter aircraft. You can’t create an aircraft that does everything well, they are either fighters, ground support or bombers. There is plenty of case history to back it up, but the military is run by hand picked generals who will dance to the tune of the Industrial Military complex, and eventually end up working for them.

        • Infidel007

          That’s funny you came to the same conclusion I did. I read your first post without seeing your second until now when I made my first comment. The generals can get a lobbying job for a defense contractor when they retire. Also how much lobbying money from defense firms goes to decision making by politicians on what weapons systems to use? Are certain parties more favored than others due to who they are and how big their wallet is vs the effectiveness of some of their systems?

          Besides being an easy thing to weaponize by foreign governments, lobbying is also a terrible idea since big money has too much influence in our election process. I know it would be naive to think that hasn’t always been the case throughout history, but these days we make the act of bribing an elected official legal and just, so it’s done out in the open in broad daylight. It’s even a respected industry. It reminds me of insider trading being legal for CONgress but illegal for the peasant class.

    • Bloodaxe

      It looks like a total dog but they’ve committed so much money to it they can’t back out of it. So, they’ll continue throwing tons of good money after bad.

      • Infidel007

        Beware the military industrial complex. The whole military industrial complex is hurting the effectiveness of our military ironically in my opinion as well. I’ve never understood the whole multi task angle. Instead of jack of all trades master of none, why not simply focus on one or two primary attributes and do them as good as possible, without sacrificing performance on those one or two things by trying to make one thing do it all, and then integrate another fighter designed to do the other things as good as possible into your forces. To me it seems like the most logical approach. Then again I can’t buy political favors with large amounts of money, so logic plays second fiddle to large piles of money.

        • gdooley

          They already know all this- research the “Jack-of-all-trades” F-111 from 1961. From Wikipedia: “The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark was a supersonic, medium-range interdictor and tactical attack aircraft that also filled the roles of strategic bomber, aerial reconnaissance, and electronic-warfare aircraft in its various versions.”

          Problem was, it did none of these well. The f-111B Navy fighter version was a total failure, at 50+ tons!

      In August 1992 James Riady took a limo ride with Bill Clinton, in which he promised to donate a lot of money to Bill’s campaign. Riady has been connected by the CIA to the Chinese military. Riady’s money has been credited with saving Clinton’s 1992 campaign. Why wouldn’t Riady have taped this conversation for China’s later use? Judging by Clinton’s behavior during his presidency, he did tape it.

      • MaryEllen DIgregorio

        Bill Clinton installed a “firewall” to prevent the FBI from communicating with the CIA. This hindered Freeh’s investigation. It also made it harder for us to detect the 9/11 attack, which we were investigating before it happened.

    Before Bill Clinton became president, China had a third world military. They couldn’t reliably or accurately launch a missile. They didn’t have miniaturized nukes to put on top of those missiles. Within the eight years of Clinton’s presidency, China got all of that, which took us untold hundreds of billions of dollars, and generations of research to achieve. Clinton was always signing technology waivers for China, and China was funding his political campaigns. I am baffled as to why a connection isn’t being made between this, the Clinton Foundation slush fund, and Hillary’s private email server. Put simply, the Clintons are always out for themselves, and are a national security threat.

    Maybe it has something to do with us moving so many factories to China too? I mean if we move an assembly factory there, then the parts and designs have to go as well. We’ve been giving them every tool they need to copy things because we can’t refuse the cheap labor. I know it is a bit different for military stuff, but think about how many toy/hobby items are made in China, and it isn’t a far stretch to upscale that technology with only minor help from spying/hacking.

    So for example, if an actual Chinese Nike factory wanted to make fake Nikes, all they would need to do is run the factory at night using their own leather and plastic rather than from the Nike warehouse. If you were poor you’d do the same thing.

    Don’t forget folks that Hillary’s husband was the one who gave China MERV technology. MERV for you dummies is the capability to put multiple nuclear warheads on ICBM’s aimed at the USA. Brilliant huh?

  • MaryEllen DIgregorio

    Meanwhile, we buy computer chips from China to install in our advanced weapons. These chips had “back doors” installed in them, which enables China to compromise the functioning of the chips at a time of their choosing. This would enable it to degrade the performance of our weapons when a conflict with us arises. Not long ago our entire stealth fleet had to be grounded, for a problem with a “valve.”

    Chinese generals have repeatedly called war with the U.S. “inevitable.” When their soldiers practice simulated war games, their enemy is U.S. troops, with U.S. weapons. China has shot lasers (our technology) at our satellites, and damaged them. In the event of a war, they would be able to blind us by taking out our satellites. They continued to do this, even after we threatened a military response.

    China doesn’t know who our next president will be. They’ve got a year and a half of Obama, to get while the getting is good. Hold on, people.

    Hillary Clinton on China: “It is difficult to deal toughly with your banker.” It is especially difficult, when China bought your husband, and he could be blackmailed as a result of the Chinagate scandal.

    In the 1970s John Huang befriended the Clintons. Huang worked for a company which the CIA told congress had a close association with the Chinese government. Huang later became a conduit for millions of Chinese dollars into Bill’s political campaigns. Clinton actually forced Huang on his DNC fund raisers. After the 1996 election, Clinton appointed Huang to a top secret position, from which Huang delivered what he had learned to China. At his trial, Huang testified that his foreign bosses “had hoped to gain some information.”

  • William Dorrit

    China has the entire Star Wars Reagan program courtesy of Isreal, Nuke designs courtesy of Los Alamos, all other US weapons designs courtesy of Rumsfeld allowing all US weapons designs on line for contractors to see including foreign nationals employed by outsource SW companies and all US service and CIA and Civilian Govt Employee records because it was outsourced to a front company who allowed access to the records by Indian and Chinese Nationals in India and China.

    Its F’ing disgusting that the American people do not do nothing about it. No protest, no resistance…we’re all sitting watching the Chinese eat our lunch, a lunch that has not even been paid for. And to sit here to think Mrs. Clinton may very well win the election…remarkable. I have begun to believe that the US at some given point in the future will be forced to experience a situation like the of Solvit Union did in the early 90’s (collapse) for the United States to get through its head that “pigs do not fly”, there is not such thing as the “Tooth Fairy”. You can not continue to manage a county without limits. You can not give the store away to your emenies, and think those emenies will not harm you. You can not spend money and resources endlessly, and to expect to have an endless suppley. Becuase recourses are limited nature itself. You can not continue to miss management stations and except to win or have a positive result. At the end of the day Washington’s loss of reality, lack of consistent and logical leadership will not only erode this nation as we see happening but will contribute to its collapse. If I were to be China, and really wanted to defeat the the most powerful nation on earth and replace it with myself..I would do exact as they have. A) I would feed it’s addiction to debit by supplying that nation with has much debit as I could, simultaneously I would create the need for a new world currency, replacing the dollar with the Chnese currency. B) then I would pomote myself as strong adversary to my emenies friends ( Britian, South Korea, Germeny ) simultaneously pointing how weak and cruupt the US is and there is more $$$ to be gsjn by working with China ten Te US. C) I would move into the strategic geograthical places where my emeny too broke to go, or was unwilling to go. (Africa, South America and the 3rd World counties). I would purchase all the natural rear minerals for access to th 1.3 billion market, that the Americans are not permitted to access. D) I would enter into a covert financial, military and industrial data sharing espionage campaign to advance my own national intrest.(notice how fast and simular the most advanced Chinese military hardware looks to the US?? I is no by mistake) E) developed my power project capacity by developing & building military partnerships, opening strategic military bases and building ses if all posible. F) finally building on systems that will provide big bang bucks for future conflicts….i.e cyber force and counter force, space militarization and advacement technology. China is playing to win and defeat the United States on every front of national power. Strategically setting goals on evey facet of national power. From advanced education to space colonization, to financial superiority to strategic control of rear earth minerals to military dominance. America is a washed with lack of focus & replaceable waste..there is a new Sheriff in town, his name is China.

  • irvpost

    They did not need to steal it; we gave them the contracts to build it. Remember the circuit boards for the fighters were made in China and they were found to have dead circuits, and firmware back doors. Also it doesn’t matter where they got it; they have it, and if they know how to use it then that means the most ruthless and determined will win a conflict.

  • Brandon Merrell

    Yeah, but its well known their engines are crap. They look the same but because they didn’t truly build the equipment so they don’t understand why and how it was built the way it was. Their sea, air, and land forces are fitted with equipment that cannot be sustained far from home. Not mentioned in the article is the fact that the Russian knockoff fighters required Russian engines to be worth anything and Russia refused to provide them without a ban on China’s arms trade of those models.

  • Sanity22

    Good points, but I wonder, how many real fights have the PRC pilots been in? Especially against trained pilots? One thing is for sure – applying technology effectively in a battlefield environment is more difficult than simply pressing a button. It takes a lot of practice, especially when trying to integrate air, land, and sea elements.
    Also, China hasn’t invented anything recently, and why should they? Their R&D is basically free, except they don’t gain the experience in development that would help in improving existing designs. So they will continue to rely on espionage to keep their weapons pipeline open.
    Want to get China’s attention? Stop defending the Persian Gulf, as they get most of their oil from there. Also, start applying tariffs to goods produced with prison labor (like iPhones) and forget the WTO.
    A war is coming, as the forces are coming into alignment that it’s inevitable. The next US president will have to be tough to offset the wussification of the office by Obama, and the Chinese will want to keep the status quo. If we don’t get tough, then expect Japan to double it’s defense spending in the near term, because China’s number one target will be Japan and the US, and South Korea will stay neutral.For a good primer of how it will happen, look for an ideosyncratic event, an assisination, accidental collison of forces, even a natural disaster could be the trigger.
    Of course I could be full of sheet, but i won’t admit it….lol

    “In 1999, [Sandy] Berger was criticized for failing to promptly inform President Clinton of his knowledge that the People’s Republic of China had managed to acquire the designs of a number of U.S. nuclear warheads. Berger was originally briefed of the espionage by the Department of Energy (DOE) in April 1996, but did not inform the president until July 1997.” – wikipedia, “Sandy Berger” “nuclear espionage scandal.”

    • MaryEllen DIgregorio

      No. He informed the POTUS in July 1996. He kept denying when he told the POTUS, but eventually it came out that he informed Clinton in real time. Given his position in the govt., Berger was obligated to tell the president. And, given the importance of the information, why wouldn’t he? Clinton’s lies about not being aware of the Chinese theft is an indication of his consciousness of guilt over his Chinagate scandal.

  • JWRiley2

    March 4, 1988 I assisted in the off load of four Chinese Silkworm missiles and their control vehicles at a Navy owned port on the west coast from a small South African freighter. This was in response to the USS Starke attack in the Persian gulf. The CNO reported to a congressional inquiry in to the incident that the Navy’s biggest concern in the region was Iran and their Silkworm missiles located at the Hormuz strait choke point. Since none of our allies owned any we had no knowledge of how they operated to defend against them. Both China and South Africa were on a trade embargo list and their assets in the U.S. were frozen due to human rights violations. A week later a Chinese Navy Admiral visited the Pentagon. Shortly after this exchange of technology ships sailed freely in the gulf and both counties U.S. assets were released. The South African freighter was reported to have sank in the Indian ocean west of Diego Garcia and its crew rescued by a Navy destroyer. This deal, this arrangement was initiated and set up and arranged by George HW Bush’s brother. Remember Bush had been both CIA director and Ambassador to China before some how securing the V.P. position and eventually the presidency. His brother was reprimanded later by congress for some dealings with Chinese businessmen over some golf course venture in Shanghai I believe.And now you know what I have known for so long.

  • MaryEllen DIgregorio

    From a walk in spy and from monitoring China, the DOE concluded that China had a nuclear weapon, which was the equal of our own. Intelligence agents compared this to the Rosenbergs, who gave Russia critical secrets of our nuclear weapons in the 1950s. The investigation quickly identified Wen Ho Lee as a prime suspect. he worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He copied the “legacy codes,” the data discovered from over 50 years of American research on nuclear weapons. He was able to do this because the Clinton appointee in charge of the labs decided that color coded security badges were “discriminatory.”

    The interesting thing was Clinton’s reaction to this. He said, “Can I tell you that there has been no espionage at he lab since I have been president? I can tell you that no one has reported to me that they suspect that such a thing has occurred..” When pressed, he said, “To the best of my knowledge, no one has said anything to me about any espionage which occurred by China against the labs during my presidency.” If have misstated this in any way because i don’t remember or something, then I will tell you that. But I do not believe I have forgotten.” Can you imagine a president forgetting about being told about such a disaster?

    • MaryEllen DIgregorio

      Of course he was told. Sand Berger admitted that he briefed the president in 1998. Later, when more information came to light, Berger had to amend his statement and admit that he briefed Clinton in July, 1997. Still later, Berger had to admit that he briefed Clinton in 1996. To me this indicates a consciousness of guilt. Clinton didn’t want to put himself in a position of having to explain why, at the same time he was allowing China to perfect its missiles through ill advised technology waivers, he did nothing to stop China from stealing our nuclear capabilities. If people were able to connect all of this with the flow of illegal Chinese money into his campaigns, then the ugly truth would be known: Clinton sold U.S. national security to China for its campaign contributions. That’s Clinton’s legacy. Clinton;s implausible denial of Chinese espionage against us indicates a consciousness of guilt. But don’t worry, Hillary will be our first women president!

  • MaryEllen DIgregorio

    Under U.S. law, China was forbidden from doing business with U.S. nuclear companies, if China was found to be helping non nuclear countries acquire nuclear weapons. At the time, China was helping Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and North Korea with their nuclear programs. Nevertheless, Clinton certified that China was in compliance with the law. This information was widely known in the intelligence community. Clinton said that China promised to stop helping those countries, and that it should therefore be allowed to continue to do business with U.S. nuclear companies. I think it was during one of his infamous WH coffees when Clinton was taped saying, “What happens when you have automatic sanctions legislation is that it put enormous pressure on whoever is in the executive branch to fudge an evaluation of the facts of what is going on.” Especially when they’re giving so much campaign cash to your campaign.

    May 10, 1999

    “The Clinton Administration notified Congress today that it had approved the export of technology to China to permit the launching of a communications satellite aboard a Chinese rocket next month.

    President Clinton said in a letter to Congress that the transfer would not harm national security or significantly improve China’s military capability in space. The President was required under a 1998 law to certify that all such technology exports are in the national interest.

    The certification was the first such notice to Congress under the law, which was passed in the aftermath of a Congressional uproar last year over the transfer of sensitive missile technology to China.

    Mr. Clinton’s notification also follows by less than a week the release of a report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which concluded that lax monitoring of the launching of American-made satellites aboard Chinese rockets had enhanced the accuracy of China’s ballistic missile arsenal.”

    “China has acquired the necessary tools to pursue high technology. In 1993, President Bill Clinton agreed to sell an $8 million supercomputer to China. Twenty years later, China builds its own billion-dollar supercomputers. Without the sophisticated computer modeling on supercomputers, it is almost impossible to develop cutting-edge military technology.”

    How about you stop blaming Clinton or bush or whomever else and blame YOURSELF. You shop at Walmart, everything in your house was made in China. YOU are funding it. China is the model for the one world government. Has to be because nobody cares they’re communist. Would we have done business with mother Russia? No.

    I worked for a defense contractor for 10 years. It’s no surprise that our weapon systems have been compromised in every way. All federal agencies and contractors are so dumbed down by the grievance industry and other miscellaneous traitors that they cease to function.

    Don’t send your kids to the military. The weapons are over-priced, compromised junk–and all have counter-measures. Buy guns, ammo and build a bomb shelter. And worry. Worry a lot.

  • China’s achilles heel is it lacks the ability to project its conventional force around the globe and sustain it in a prolonged confrontation. China has only one carrier, the Liaoning, and has only within the last year begun air wing operations. Same for Russia, one carrier, the Admiral Kuznetsov.

    America on the other hand maintains 11 Carrier Strike Groups and has at least fifty years of experience fighting CSG’s.

    China as it stands today is untouchable on its home territory same as Russia and America. But only America can sustain a major war for a decade on the other side of the planet. China and Russia simply lack the logistical capabilities to do this.

    The US government is well aware that the Chinese are master thieves, and that everything we build will eventually be stolen. Because of that, we have backdoors built into just about everything they’ve stolen. You’ll never hear about it, we’ll never admit it, and we’ll never use it unless it’s a life or death situation. I couldn’t think of a better defense against military theft. Good luck using those fakes if the time comes.

    Look at how technology changed during the course of WWII. It’s going to be hard to keep up with US when you have to rely on stealing technology as it comes available. When you steal you not only have technology that is several yrs old you are no longer able to innovate as well either.

Yet we, through our epic incompetence have pissed it away. The stakes are deadly serious and the clowns who run our government are clueless.

    The good thing about anything made by the Chinese is that after they are through stealing all the plans and new engineering that must be used in making a product it all must use be used right away because nothing they make lasts over a year before it destroys itself or breaks.

No, China is a culture of thieves, counterfeiters and copyright infringers who ply their nefarious trade with complete impunity, because the rest of the world refuses to hold China’s feet to the fire and make them pay for their international crimes. Why? Because international corporations contract Chinese manufacturing labor at pennies on the dollar, and nobody wants to upset THAT applecart. China produces virtually NOTHING original to export to the rest of the world, and that’s just one reason that China has been excluded as a World Trade Partner for decades — other reasons include human rights violations, international corporate espionage, and, yes, theft of intellectual property. Yet the West tolerates these crimes, not out of fear but out of GREED.

    Allowing Chinese theft of American weapons technology is yet another example of the corrupt American elite’s self-serving policies of enriching themselves and abandoning any larger national or western interests in defending liberal principles and institutions and opposing authoritarianism. It’s just another part of a larger story of corrupt corporations, banks,and federal agencies working for corporate interests, not the interests of western liberal democracy. They let the Chinese steal all the technology because the Chinese then allowed them to do business in china in return. We will pay dearly for allowing authoritarianism to build its power with the products of western liberal institutions.

          I just wrote roughly the same thing in a reply on the article about the destroyer sailing near the fake islands. They’ll burn everyone.

          • Infidel007

            They want nations to pay tribute to them like back in the old imperial China days, not willing partners. I’ve read horror stories about Chinese business practices by people who deal with them. They intend to be king of the mountain by hook or by crook. They used short sighted American corporations to help them and still continue to use them as the useful idiots they seem to be.

          • jim

            international corporations have no loyalty. Even back in WW2 Shell left its refineries intact for the Japanese so they could get them up and running after the war.

          • Infidel007

            They have no loyalty you’re right since what a corporation does is chase a higher profit. This is where laws and regulations come in to protect society against extreme practices by multi national corporations who would sell out the host nation if it meant more money and a better quarterly statement for it’s share holders. In today’s upside down mad hatter’s world we live in such talk is called nativism and being against free market principals or the dreaded word protectionism.

            I simply think it’s basic common sense if you ask me. If I see corporation X lobbying (bribing) our politicians to implement policies that benefit said corporation at the expense of the rest of society I feel this is bad for the nation. I know such talk is considered anti free market.

            The nonsense about free markets with no limitations was a clever bill of goods sold to us by greedy CEO’s who’d sell their mother if it meant a better quarterly statement. If Jim Jones was an economist instead of a cult leader we’d have had a mass extinction event in this country. A message to future suicidal cult leaders please don’t become economists. I might disagree with many fellow Americans, but I’d hate to see what would happen if you said drink the poison kool aid, while using clever words with no substance and baffling them with B.S.

          • jim

            It’s okay for other countries to put national interests first but just let us try it. We need more economic nationalism and less theorizing.

          • rolltides

            Hey Jim do you think China in the long run will burn America alive by Americans stupidity.

          • jim

            Way too conjectural but I wouldn’t be surprised if we pay a large price for some of our policies, mistakes. I’d say we already have given our manufacturing.

          • rolltides

            Hey right now do you think China is too powerful to stop right now. I have heard China has a 100 year plan to replace America as the sole super power. Have you heard of that. I think China is beating the living dailylights out of America. Do you Jim think China will cash in on America and be the owner of this country.

          • jim

            Basically, no. The US is still in a much better position than China. China has quite a few weaknesses.

          • rolltides

            Hey do you think the US and China will go to war like a shooting war Jim.

          • Infidel007

            The ivory tower crowd theorizes a lot, while another type uses them to baffle the masses with B.S while paying them 30 pieces of silver to do it. They might even believe in their B.S too, but our insane obsession with free markets (which aren’t free there is a price to be paid for it,) while ignoring other nation’s nationalist trade policies, or worse outright theft on an industrial scale is suicidal. It might be good for certain multi national corporations bottom line, but it sure isn’t good for the health and prosperity of American society.

          • jim

            nor our security.

          • Infidel007

            I’ve noticed something about Ivory tower types. They often lack a certain perspective that I feel is very important. Understanding the darker side of human nature. Many of them can’t fathom or comprehend it, or choose to ignore it. So some Utopian ideal is pushed while ignoring the very real and compromised human element.

            An example things like Socialism, or Communism, or even Anarchism as defined by its actual definition and not idiots burning stuff and engaging in random mayhem sound good on paper, but in reality are a nightmare. I’m all for free trade to an extent, but you also need to take into account the human factor. Has our total obsession with the supposed free market benefited the working man and women in this country, or has there been a negative impact to our society?

            If you look at our wages they remain stagnant or declined quite substantially while our cost of living continues to sky rocket. Also we continue to get taken advantage of in trade deals because multi national corporations are lobbying (bribing) politicians to take a favorable position on certain trade deals that have a negative impact on our society.

            What’s important to these corporations lobbying our politicians isn’t American society or the working class, it’s their bottom line despite the impact to the rest of society. We are simply one trading bloc in a global world in their eyes. Well from my perspective and anyone who lives in this nation, I’m sure you have a much more local one, and you’d be right to feel that way. Human society and communities are far more local than the globalist kool aid drinkers would have you believe.

            Then you have countries like China who do far more than simply get over on American corporations in the board room. They are engaging in an actual military campaign to methodically plunder the crown jewels of this nation. The respective multi national corps seem cowed due to being afraid of losing Chinese market share. They seem to see the forest and not the trees.

          • LantCynic

            Yup. Look at the old WW2 era videos of Hitler giving pep talks to the workers at Seamens.

  • Raul Hernandez

    Many Chinese products look like real things but they do not perform like the originals

    • LantCynic

      Youre kidding yourself if you dont think the Chinese are capable,of making weapons systems as good as anything we have. We’ve given them the plans. Its just like iPhones. Give them plans and they build a world class smart phone.

  • LantCynic

    What is interesting is how the Chinese got plans, software, even components, for those weapons systems. The FBI has long known that Indian H1-B guest workers, who *do* work on defense programs, have taken that information back with them and it has been sold to China and Russia. I, personally, know of one Indian guest worker who took an entire circuit board for a missile system! Software and engineering design, things like stealth technology, even white papers on undetectable optical fiber instruction (and guess what those Russian subs are doing in the Atlantic) have all been stolen and sold. Those guest worker visas are an invitation for espionage.

    • jim

      but we “need” more H1b’s :/ <- sarcasm

      • Infidel007

        You say H1B working on a sensitive sight trying to make ends meet, I say foreign national spy taking advantage of our stupidity.You say Tomato I say Tomahto. I know I’m a racist xenophobe for denying a poor up and coming tech worker from another country on a temporary visa his due.

        • jim

          edited my reply above

        • LantCynic

          They are not, to my knowledge, spying for India. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to find that they were spying for the India contractor that supplies them to US companies. Its done purely for the money.

          The guest worker visa law was changed to permit H1-B visa holders to work on defense department contracts. They even get a two year extention. The real problem is the US corporations would use them for secret or top secret projects, anyways, because they are so entrenched, that they know the computer systems, etc. and, don’t forget that critical corporations like Tektronix, Intel, Microsoft, HP, Boeing, all hire Chinese nationals, too. The problem, though, and this is just based on my own observations, is with the Indian guest workers.

          People have long said that the real problem with these guest worker visas is that they displace US workers and present a huge national security flaw. The only way to fix that is to end those programs entirely and force US corporations to hire US citizens as STEM workers (technology, engineering, science, network administrators, database and computer experts).

          Something simple, and civilian, like the OTDR has enormous intelligence uses. I Doubt that these were devloped on a military contract. However, knowledge of the algorithms easily permits the invisible/undetectable taping of any optical fiber,,wire, or other transmission method of digital data. This country, Congress,,is insane to permit any guest workers, but hi-tech or science guest workers amounts to out and out treason.

    • Infidel007

      Why do we let foreign nationals on guest worker Visa’s work work on sensitive things? The first thought they should run through our defense industry leader’s heads is spy. I know lets let Russian foreign nationals work on our nuclear missile silos. Maybe they already do for all I know. It couldn’t be any worse than Bill Clinton giving the Chinese all of that missile technology for campaign financing. In the mean old nasty imperial days of racist America such an act would’ve been considered bribery and an act of treason.

  • Johnnyoneleg

    The chineese hacked Los Alamos new mexicos nuclear computers and stole every thing including ballistic missle design and the computers they couldn’t hack that wasn’t linked to the Internet , they just stole and walked out the front gate with!

    This was on Bill Clinton’s watch and everyone in Intel knows the Clinton’s allowed this to happen !

    We are at war with the illuminati who is satans shadow government on earth !

      This isnt a Democrat vs Republic thing. Both sides pass those guest worker visas. Both sides, also, have peoplemthat raise objections to them, formthe bery reasons discussed here. So, vote for people who will enact tariff walls to stop outsourcing and willflat out end guest worker visas. There is no excuse for any company to hire any guest workers.

      • CashMcCall

        but but but… without any guest worker visas, Obama has managed to invite a full 25% of the population of Mexico into America illegally. When do you suppose he will be satisfied when half the population of Mexico marches across the Southern border?

  • Joe English

    Time Magazine article back in the 90’s “Titan Rain” chronicles Shawn Carpenter whom worked at Los Alamos . He was able to do something the Govt was not..( or would not) do…. He caught Chinese hackers breaking into Los Alamos and wholesale sucking out data from servers there and then extrapolating the data back in China. He had the blessing of the FBI.. When using a Yahoo email account to find the origination point of Cisco routers in Shanghai, Los Alamos fired him and the FBI claimed they knew nothing of his activities.. Shawn sued some years later and won a monetary suit from Los Alamos or the Govt.. (One in the same right?)

    Some of the data taken was new catapult technology for aircraft carriers, New class of submarines. etc..

    It was a very lengthy article and encourage folks to read it.

    Here is my point..

    This sworn enemy of the US has been doing this for as long as we can imagine.. Why have we not stripped them of “Permanent Most Favored Nation Trading Status”?

        Actually it would be economical suicide to do that – so please, do it asap.

    • CashMcCall

      But it is perfectly OK for the USA to spy on other nations, read email by hacking, and listening in on cell phones… Nice double standards there Yank.

    The Chinese say Americans are dumb. We are for letting their backwards civilization steal our weapon’s technology. Hope they choke on all the smog they live in.

    • nobody

      Backwards civilization? Are you for real? Because no one can be that dumb.

  • Bill Catz

    America used to have security. Nothing got out. But then, some bean counter somewhere came up with the concept that it was OK if a little bit got out. The concept of an “acceptable loss” was created. Then, on top of that, we had the “convenience” factor added on that allowed the Internet to connect to systems holding our most treasured secrets. Well, with hundreds of different companies working on our big projects and each can allow a little bit to get out, those hundreds times those little bits amounts to a significant loss. America isn’t serious about security anymore. It’s all talk.

  • CashMcCall

    I think the USA entering into the South China Sea with a destroyer is stupid and provocative Obama policy. While China is far behind in Naval shipbuilding, at some point they will develop the technologies probably with Russian help and be very formidable. I think the Obama intrigue and cold war conduct of the USA and Japan will fuel Chinese determination in this area. America is stretched thin, seemingly interested in pushing for a fight on many fronts. Sun Tzu in the Art of War would call fighting long distance wars on two fronts, reckless and foolhardy. Perhaps that accurately sums Obama’s strategies.

    Good god. We just spent a few hundred billion doing free R&D for the chinese to build their own F35. That is 100 percent certainly a copy. They even did the B version with the VSTOL. Thats actually an impressive accomplishment that they built it and it flies. Its not just as easy as having the plans. You need thousands of subcontractors and a whole industry devoted to very specialized and exotic manufacturing materials and techniques. Very impressive indeed.
