Someone should have told the sorry little Chinese hackers that were caught stealing private information that crime does not pay.
These two hackers were found to be forging their way into private computers of people, governments, private organizations, private citizens, clergy, and even human rights activists all over the United States.
Selfish gain and helping mother China excel were their goals as they set out to take what did not belong to them. They are a threat to the security of the United States.
The selfish people were LI Xiaoyu and Dong Jiazhi. Both of them were highly trained in a Chinese school for the purpose of hacking their way into foreign computers to benefit China.
For ten years they targeted countries such as “United States, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Japan, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.”
Their goal was to access information in fields such as “high tech manufacturing; medical device, civil, and industrial engineering; business, educational, and gaming software; solar energy; pharmaceuticals; defense.”
Information that can be used to hurt other nations and people. they even tried to sabotage and gain information from companies developing a cure for COVID-19.
The charges against the two munchkins were brought by “Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers; FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich; U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington William D. Hyslop; and Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Seattle Field Division Raymond Duda.”
These are serious charges that the face. Demers stated that “China has now taken its place, alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea, in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cybercriminals in exchange for those criminals being ‘on-call’ to work for the benefit of the state, here to feed the Chinese Communist party’s insatiable hunger for American and other non-Chinese companies’ hard-earned intellectual property, including COVID-19 research.”
China deliberately trained these people to be their disposal dolls. If they got caught, China would simply deny any affiliation with them. China has never been about fair play. If they can get ahead of their enemies, they will take that chance and steps.
The sad part is that China could take their place among the elite nations if they would play fair. Instead of foul attempts of sabotage, work alongside nations to gain that respect and prestige they desire.
The two loser criminals used by the Chinese are both charged with conspiracy to commit computer fraud, conspiracy to commit theft of trade secrets, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, unauthorized access of a computer and multiple counts of identity theft.
They will undoubtedly spend the rest of their life in federal prison. What they were promised from the Chinese is never worth them losing their freedom over. They were lied to by their mother country.
Bowdich stated that “Today’s indictment demonstrates the serious consequences the Chinese MSS and its proxies will face if they continue to deploy malicious cyber tactics to either steal what they cannot create or silence what they do not want to hear.”
And the world laughs in the face of the Chinese because they have failed yet again to gain access to information that is not legally theirs to have.
The actions of the communists threaten the United States and every other nation and person that lives on the earth. Fair play is the key to gaining national attention as a nation. But China has decided to side with the other rogue nations that hate life and seek to destroy everyone that calls earth home.
China will never be accepted or respected as long as they continue to act like terrorists. They will only face punishments from other nations that transact business with them.
President Trump has said all along that China does not play fair. He was right about them, which means he is right regarding the right way of dealing with them. They cannot compete on an economical level that the United States operates.
The best course of action is to hit their pocketbook and make them realize that fair play is in their best interests.
