More troubling reports about the military strength of China. According to assessments made by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC) in its annual report, released Nov. 16, China’s cyberwarfare strategy has "switched from a defensive to an offensive posture, with the goal of attacking enemy networks and denying adversaries access to information". Hey, forget about the few hacking al-Qaeda wannabees mentioned in my previous post. We've got a whole nation-state aiming for us. On a similar note, DoD has been concerned about possible jamming of our reconnaissance satellites by China. According to this article, China may have already targeted U.S. spy satellites over its territory with ground-based lasers.
