"?The arrests mark China's latest attempts to gain top secret information about U.S. military systems and sales, said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Wainstein. He described China as ?particularly adept, and particularly determined and methodical in their espionage efforts?.? Even if the Feds? charges against these people are accurate (and their track record leaves much to be desired), perhaps there wouldn't be any secrets to steal if they weren't obsessively building the deadliest and most massive military arsenal in human history, to be used at a moment's notice against any country on Earth for any reason that strikes their fancy. And considering past neocon saber-rattling at China, the thugs in Beijing are probably trying to prepare themselves in the event they ever have to mount a defense against the thugs in Washington."
