Cyberspionage: China warnt vor Google, Apple und Co. | unwatched.org

Volkrepublik ChinaIn China spitzt sich die Stimmung gegen ausländische Technologiefirmen weiter zu. Nachdem vergangene Woche bereits der Telekomriese Cisco offen der Mittäterschaft an der Cyberspionage der US-Regierung beschuldigt worden war, greifen nun auch chinesische Sicherheitsfirmen und Forschungsinstitute in die hitzige Auseinandersetzung ein.

 

Diese schließen sich der Kritik der Führung in Peking an und nennen neben Cisco auch noch zahlreiche andere mutmaßliche Übeltäter wie Google, Apple, Yahoo, Microsoft oder Facebook. User, die Technologien und Services dieser Firmen nutzen, würden sich einem erhöhten Sicherheitsrisiko aussetzen, so die eindringliche Warnung der Experten.

„Online-Technologien haben sich zu einem der Hauptwege für die US-Regierung entwickelt, Informationen auf der ganzen Welt zu stehlen“, zitiert die Zeitung China Daily den Security-Fachmann Wan Tao, Gründer des Intelligence Defense Friends Laboratory (IDF), einer auf Cybersicherheit spezialisierten Nicht-Regierungs-Organisation.

Six elderly people in China are said to have killed themselves to ensure they died before new regulations banning coffin burials come into force, a newspaper has reported.

 

China has a tradition dating back thousands of years of ancestor worship, which usually requires families to bury their relatives and construct a tomb.

 

But in recent years local governments across the country have demolished tombs as part of a national campaign encouraging cremation, in an attempt to save on limited land resources.

Anschuldigungen auf beiden Seiten

 

Chinas Außenamtssprecher drehte den Spieß um und beschuldigte seinerseits Amerika unter Hinweis auf die jüngsten Enthüllungen über Spionageaktivitäten des „weitreichenden und organisierten Cyberdiebstahls“. Er beklagte amerikanische Abhöraktionen und Überwachung ausländischer Führer und Unternehmen. China sei „ein Opfer“ der Schnüffeleien der Amerikaner.

 

Eine tatsächliche Strafverfolgung der fünf angeklagten chinesischen Militärmitarbeiter gilt als unwahrscheinlich.

Obama makes South China waves | RT Op-Edge

[…] Now for the hidden agenda

 

When Obama hits the South China Sea things will get even choppier. The South China Sea is the heart of Eurasia’s naval hinterland– through which flows a third of the global naval action and of course all those millions of tons of oil being transported from the Indian Ocean across the mega-strategic Malacca strait and then the South China Sea towards East Asia (including, crucially, 80 percent of China’s oil imports.)

 

The hidden agenda here is for the US Navy to forever remain as the hyperpower in the South China Sea – without allowing Beijing as much as a possibility of reaching parity with it. Thus the Pentagon’s carefully orchestrated propaganda selling the myth that the South China Sea without the hegemonic US would be a hellish chaos.

Nato’s action plan in Ukraine is right out of Dr Strangelove | John Pilger | Comment is free | The Guardian

From China to Ukraine, the US is pursuing its longstanding ambition to dominate the Eurasian landmass

[…]

In February, the US mounted one of its proxy „colour“ coups against the elected government of Ukraine; the shock troops were fascists. For the first time since 1945, a pro-Nazi, openly antisemitic party controls key areas of state power in a European capital. No western European leader has condemned this revival of fascism on the border of Russia. Some 30 million Russians died in the invasion of their country by Hitler’s Nazis, who were supported by the infamous Ukrainian Insurgent Army (the UPA) which was responsible for numerous Jewish and Polish massacres. The Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists, of which the UPA was the military wing, inspires today’s Svoboda party.

 

Since Washington’s putsch in Kiev – and Moscow’s inevitable response in Russian Crimea to protect its Black Sea fleet – the provocation and isolation of Russia have been inverted in the news to the „Russian threat“. This is fossilised propaganda.  […]

 

A Nato membership action plan – straight from the war room of Dr Strangelove – is General Breedlove’s gift to the new dictatorship in Ukraine. „Rapid Trident“ will put US troops on Ukraine’s Russian border and „Sea Breeze“ will put US warships within sight of Russian ports. At the same time, Nato war games in eastern Europe are designed to intimidate Russia. Imagine the response if this madness was reversed and happened on the US’s borders. Cue General Turgidson.

 

And there is China. On 23 April, Obama will begin a tour of Asia to promote his „pivot“ to China. The aim is to convince his „allies“ in the region, principally Japan, to rearm and prepare for the possibility of war with China.
