This is what happens when aerospace firms get hacked. OMG. Clear as day. Copycat bastards.

China's first stealth fighter, the J-20, was unveiled in early 2011 but is not expected to enter service until 2018.

I see a Stuxnet scenario in the not too distant future.

Doubt it.

Why?

re: #4 researchok

Why?

Because of a drone that looks like a Reaper externally? That same drone is also available to other foreign buyers. This is nothing new. A Stuxnet attack on China would have serious consequences. Thankfully, Obama would never approve of such a thing.

Yes, because China wouldn't hit us back with a similar virus.

Do you believe we are doing what China is doing- hacking into their military and infrastructure networks?

Of course. We might use that information differently and we instead would call it "intelligence gathering." It's the nature of the game.

I'd have to say you are right on this.

The threat we face from China is very different than the threat Israel faces coming from Iran.

Fact be told, the Soviets copied lot of our stuff.

Obviously I am pissed at the Chinese for this. And I'll not bore you with my long list of professional grievances. But hey hardball is a tough game. On one level, that's a sharp motivated opponent.

But what really sticks in my craw is the sheer dearth of consequences for copying at will. Aircraft, weapons, jeans, shirts, jewelry, movies. Penalty? What penalty?

It's the Chinese version of intellectual bankruptcy. They get the intellectual property to build on you get to go bankrupt.

The problem: How do you punish China without starting a trade war? They'll just deny everything and scream about you irrational we're being. And a trade war would cause a price spike on all kinds of consumer products here in the US. That would do no favors for the political class here, as they'd likely feel the brunt of public anger.

This is why we can't cut defense development spending. If we quit spending hundreds of billions to develop new weapons systems the Chinese wont have anyone to steal new stuff from!

Support the People's Liberation Army and tell your congressman NO to cuts on defense spending!

This message paid for by the "Americans putting their kids through college on Chinese money" slush fund.

Very dry.
