Hagel ties China to cyber attacks

From CNN’s Nunu Japaridze

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pointed the finger at China Saturday when addressing cybersecurity threats, the latest in a series of rhetorical skirmishes between the United States and China on the issue.

Speaking to an audience of defense professionals at a regional security summit in Singapore, Hagel said the United States was concerned about “the growing threat of cyber intrusions, some of which appear to be tied to the Chinese government and military.”

Even as he singled out China, Hagel added that United States was “determined to work more vigorously with China” in order to address the problem.

Acknowledging the risk of “miscalculations and mistakes as to who was behind the attack,” Hagel insisted that the most effective way to combat the cyber threat is through mutual cooperation between countries and governments.

“Cyber threats are not just a threat to the United States or a threat to any one country. They are threats to China,” Hagel said.

Hagel also noted that the United States has increased investments in cybersecurity to counter the increasing threats.

The Pentagon previously blamed China in its annual report to U.S. lawmakers on Chinese military capabilities.

The report, published in May, stated that some of the recent cyberattacks in the United States appeared “to be attributable directly to Chinese government and military.”

    You the arrogant American always blame others for your own blunders in international politics. Pakistan since last 65 years of its existence, in the name of US friend, has always been used as US frontline in wars for global domination. In 60s CIA U2 mission carried out from Badabher Air base at Peshawar Pakistan. In 80s same America fought war from Pakistan soil against USSR, and realized centuries old dreams of Capitalist/ Imperialist West and today in the name of war on terror bleeding both, Americans and Afghans / Pakistanis. John Smith has statistically proved what America has done, even cheating American nation on WMD in Iraq and now Alqaida here. Now this is internet age and world is changing fastly.
    Now Cyber war is totally different where your conventional weaponry has no use. You will have to close MIC and divert the money towards trade and general welfare of American nation as Cyber war is war of minds which only healthy and peaceful minds can counter. China has challenged US super power status, based on terror, with trade and today American markets are flooded with Chinese products. American's founding fathers, after fighting liberation war against British Imperialism, had mad trade, world peace and universal justice the corner stone of the new democratic America which after Second World War has totally changed.
    Today Pakistan is paying the price for the 65 years long friendship with America in the shape of a stronghold of international terrorism and daily Pakistani nationals are dying in their homes, streets, markets and mosques. Everyone here today blame America for these sufferings as they see this US death game since last more than three decades.
    So you arrogant American must understand ground realities but remember the new millennium is on way to globalization wherein divisions among human beings all over the globe, on religious, national, state, color or regions are losing values and like this Cyber war your this MIC and arrogance in world politics will leave you nowhere as a nation and as a state. Americans as a nation have voted for a CHANGE so you few arrogant will how long block this silent revolution at home.
    Sooner you realized your mistakes it will be better for Americans and rest of the world. Ex President Eisenhower in last address in early sixties had warned of rising dependence on MIC and had said that manufacturing of weapons will necessitate manufacture of reason for its use which will disturb peace at home and in the world.

      Bangesh - You hid Bin Laden. That's here your country's "problems" with us started. No hiding Bin Laden, no having problems. It would've been that simple. Frankly, we're sick of whiners who scream at us with their hand out for aid, while stabbing us in the back the moment we walk away. Apparently, we're good enough to forge trade agreements with but not good enough to treat like human beings. Instead of blaming us for all of your problems, why don't you gain some character and honor an start treating people the right way.

      Or, you could keep your low character as a Nation and trade with others like you, instead. Like China, who thinks nothing of stealing intellectual property, destroying their environment and abusing Third World nations in order to swipe their natural resources (remember, they're now making shady deals with countries who have received billions in charitable aid from the USA, over decades). Your prejudice is what's causing you to ignore and not address your own country's problems. Being a decent country is about actions, not words. the USA is pursuing terrorists in your country because of your country's lies, nothing else.

        Jonquil Osama was and is America's hero as he was creation of CIA and we here in Pakistan believe he is safe and enjoy your luxurious hospitality in America for his main contribution in disintegration of USSR and now occupation of Afghanistan otherwise what was the logic in hiding his dead body from Americans and rest of the world. Pakistan in US friendship has always followed American agenda at the cost of Pakistan and today facing terrorism at home. So be realistic and try to understand the ground realities if you really love America. You see all over the world America is behind all wars and MIC is earning huge dollars which they invest in Presidential elections, cheating American public opinion. Americans as a nation hate this and have punished Bush for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by electing Obama for his commitment to CHANGE this barbaric face of America but MIC as usual has not let him change and transform America into a civilized nation. China has never indulged in terrorism as they prefer trade not gun running and has become undeclared super power while America is facing fiscal cliff. So be honest to your nation and support which you see is in the best interest of America.

      ...and innocents getting hurt on the ground is always tragic - that's why this must end. But an overwhelming number of your peers are hiding terrorists who are constantly plotting and trying to attack us. Thy hide among innocents and don't even care that their presence puts others at risk. Terrorists want innocent people to die because it gives them support.

      We were attacked first, on 9/11. That's where this started. Your country hid Bin Laden and we know it was intentional Have some accountability, Pakistan.

        We did nothing wrong to Pakistan. We do not deserve to be singled-out by them and allowed to be attacked by the terrorists they enable and hide. I don't want bad things to happen to the Pakistani People and I hope this ends, ASAP, so no more innocent people are put at risk. But we can not allow what happened on 9/11, to happen again. If Pakistan refuses to remedy the problem, we will.

The real question is why the military left itself so open to intrusion? Of course, it may be that the Chinese got a bunch of disinformation and we're making a fuss to make it seem to be of value.

Then again, Julius and Ethel Rosenburg were executed in 1953 for a crime they never committed just because this nation needed a scapegoat for the Russians coming up with their own atom bomb!!!

    Bringing manufacturing back home to the USA is going to end up being not only a key to restoring our economy, but to maintaining our national security as well.

    While our politicians have been bickering for years like idiotic fools, China has been crushing the USA in a war that we don't even know we're in and without even firing a shot.

    • Chinese firms and state agencies have been implicated in a host of hacking attacks, on targets ranging from leading industrial and technology firms, to the Pentagon and other US government agencies, to the New York Times, Coca-Cola and numerous other companies and industries.

    • Oct 2012: The U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee said U.S. telecommunications operators should not be allowed do business with China's top network equipment makers because potential Chinese state influence on the companies poses a security threat.

    • Also most counterfeit goods are produced and manufactured in China, making it the counterfeit capital of the world. In fact, the counterfeiting industry accounts for 8% of China's GDP.

    • Foreign Lobbyists here in the US promote sending US jobs to countries like China, where they work for slave wages, no benefits, no OSHA safety standards or no real environment regulations. It also doesn't help us compete when these company's factories are subsidized by China's communist government. Just check out the current Chinese extreme pollution issues – We all live in the same world, but not every country plays by the same rules.

        Our economic problems didn't happen overnight. It's been happening over the past 15-20 years, but the economy was kept going by middle class Americans tapping into the equity on their homes until they were completely tapped out.

        It shouldn't be all about Democrats or Republicans! It should be about doing the right thing for our country and the majority of its citizens. I consider myself an independent voter, but going back to the Reagan days and with the only exception having been Perot, I’ve always voted Republican. But all this single-minded, left versus right, ideological one dimensional bull has got to go! This is the problem with our country. It shouldn't be about Democrats or Republicans! It should be about Americans, especially our elected officials, doing the right thing for our country and its citizens.

        Both parties have sold out the bulk of the American citizens, who they're supposed to represent, by allowing the "out-sourcing" floodgates to open wider and wider without taking any sensible measures to stem the tide. (Under Clinton jobs to China, Under Bush I & II influx of illegals or cheap easily abused labor into the US and jobs to Mexico/NAFTA) Our leaders are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself. They are NOT elected by the Global Market Place or foreign citizens!

        We need our elected officals to Start Protecting American Jobs and do whatever it takes to bring back the jobs they let go. We need leaders who will actually stand up for the American people.

        We need to bring manufacturing back to the United States of America and both parties are ignoring tariffs as a way to level the playing field, raise money and bring jobs back home. Let's guess why. Oh that's right, tariff is a dirty word. Hum, maybe it’s that our so called leaders (political leaders) are beholden to the same people who are exporting our jobs.

        I guess we should keep letting Corp Boards, Wall Street, CEOs and Foreign Lobbyists promote sending US jobs to countries where they work for slave wages, no benefits, no OSHA safety standards or no real environment regulations. How's that been working for us?

        The so called “Global Market Place” is not a level playing field. Companies may have made higher profits by "out sourcing", but they've been putting middle class Americans who are a good part of the world’s customer base out of work. I’m not a lefty or member of any union. I run a business that employs over 20 people and produces products that are purchased by customers that do manufacturing and packaging. I’m just an average Joe, but I've been saying this for more than 10 years now. If I can see it, so can our so called leaders (political leaders) who are beholden to the same people who are exporting our jobs.

        We need to add tariffs that are proportionate to the inequities in wages and regulations in the country where the goods were produced and or where we’re importing them from. We could then use the money raised by these tariffs to help companies build state of the art manufacturing plants here in the USA, which would create more jobs here at home for US citizens, which would then in turn increase our income tax revenue.

        The people with all of the excuses as to why we can’t or aren’t willing to manufacture products here in the US are the same people who have provided us with the thinking that’s gotten us into this mess in the first place.

        Over the past 15-20 years, I've seen too many of our customer's close manufacturing plants here in the USA and move those plants to different countries, decimating entire areas here in OUR COUNTRY. And I'm not alone. Returning jobs to American Citizens will provide income tax revenue to OUR Government versus our government having to pay unemployment benefits to those who would be jobless instead.

        Bringing manufacturing back to the US not only gives jobs to the US citizens who would be working in those manufacturing facilities, but to the people that would be working in the businesses that would spring up all around them. This should also include the safe harvesting, production and distribution of our own natural energy here in the USA, rather than paying for fuel from countries where they hate us. Let’s keep that money and those jobs here in the US.

        These so-called “free trade agreements” have to go. It was obvious when they were passing these agreements as to what was going to happen and sure enough it did. Our leaders had to have known this as well when they were passing these bills. It’s just common sense. We also need to bring customer support services back to the United States of America and staff them with employees who are US Citizens.

        The “Global Market Place” is not a level playing field! The whole idea of the tariffs is so we can pay our factory workers a decent wage and not be blown out by these other countries where they don’t play by the same rules.

        The bottom line is that “Our Government” has to protect domestic industry and the jobs that those industries provide. If they do that, the rest will take care of itself.

        We may have to pay a bit more for products made here in the USA by US citizens, but at least we'll still have jobs and a future for our children.

        You are correct in assuming the costs of cyberthievery have outweighed the "debt" that China claims is the case – estimates of $300billion a year in damages from chinese cyber thieves certainly wipes out the trillion or so in their publicly held bonds etc... and in fact leaves a balance of debt owed by the Chinese to the US in damages, that should be collected quickly in case of their implosion. If they complain it should be stated the obvious: don't economically damage a country you are investing in..

      During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
      In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.

        You the arrogant American always blame others for your own blunders in international politics. Pakistan since last 65 years of its existence, in the name of US friend, has always been used as US frontline in wars for global domination. In 60s CIA U2 mission carried out from Badabher Air base at Peshawar Pakistan. In 80s same America fought war from Pakistan soil against USSR, and realized centuries old dreams of Capitalist/ Imperialist West and today in the name of war on terror bleeding both, Americans and Afghans / Pakistanis. John Smith has statistically proved what America has done, even cheating American nation on WMD in Iraq and now Alqaida here. Now this is internet age and world is changing fastly.
        Now Cyber war is totally different where your conventional weaponry has no use. You will have to close MIC and divert the money towards trade and general welfare of American nation as Cyber war is war of minds which only healthy and peaceful minds can counter. China has challenged US super power status, based on terror, with trade and today American markets are flooded with Chinese products. American's founding fathers, after fighting liberation war against British Imperialism, had mad trade, world peace and universal justice the corner stone of the new democratic America which after Second World War has totally changed.
        Today Pakistan is paying the price for the 65 years long friendship with America in the shape of a stronghold of international terrorism and daily Pakistani nationals are dying in their homes, streets, markets and mosques. Everyone here today blame America for these sufferings as they see this US death game since last more than three decades.
        So you arrogant American must understand ground realities but remember the new millennium is on way to globalization wherein divisions among human beings all over the globe, on religious, national, state, color or regions are losing values and like this Cyber war your this MIC and arrogance in world politics will leave you nowhere as a nation and as a state. Americans as a nation have voted for a CHANGE so you few arrogant will how long block this silent revolution at home.
        Sooner you realized your mistakes it will be better for Americans and rest of the world. Ex President Eisenhower in last address in early sixties had warned of rising dependence on MIC and had said that manufacturing of weapons will necessitate manufacture of reason for its use which will disturb peace at home and in the world.
