In another opportunity to be ‘much too late’ it seems that a voluntary, secretive, and non-elected, non-representative government treasury group CFIUS has objected the sale of 3Com to China, on grounds of national security concerns. No doubt they would have permitted it except the last time they were making such a move, selling ports to an Arab nation, people got upset.
Steven Weisman asks “Does the “America for Sale” sign require a warning label?” I say that’s a question that is far too little and FAR too late. The worst damage was already done during the Demo-commie Clinton administration in the form of Chinagate. That fairytale courtship gave the largest communist dictatorship on the planet total and free access to our military secrets, military technology, and critical homeland defense infrastructure (Panama Canal, ports, etc.). Not to mention our manufacturing facilities, machinery, equipment, jobs.
The military industrial complex was thrilled by that ready access to such fabulous information (taxpayer funded, if you need to be reminded), because then they had a brand-new market they could sell the top of the line military equipment, machinery and periphery. China went from a third-world poverty stricken backwater to a global superpower instantaneously, and a very rich one at that.
But back to Weisman’s article, the CFIUS holds this opinion: “American officials and specialists in the field said it would be premature to conclude that the United States had decided it needed to crack down on foreign investments, even in delicate technology areas.”
We are told, however, that the collapse or delay of the 3Com deal will increase ‘tensions’ with China. Given that China, after Clinton supplied them with everything they needed, has already openly said that ‘War with America is INEVITABLE. It cannot be avoided,’ I guess they would be a little irritated that we didn’t ALSO sell them the technology and means to hack into the military’s technological network, destroy our communications ability for quick response to their inevitable attack. They’ll have to work a little harder themselves, for a change.
Americans can be SO HARD to get along with at times, can’t we?
Of course, the treason goes on and on, showing clearly that it is a totally bi-partisan effort. We’re told “This month, federal officials charged a Defense Department official with passing classified documents to China. In a separate case, the Justice Department arrested a former Boeing engineer in California on charges of economic espionage for the Chinese.”
And, here we are with our ‘representatives’ in action: “Members of Congress have also asked the Bush administration to defend its decision last year to allow certain Chinese companies to import crucial military technologies without licenses.”
You can see from this chart that since the Clinton Era, Chinese investment in ‘technology’ has increased exponentially, and certainly not for ‘global benefit’.
This recently noticed ‘snag’? “The proposed $2.2 billion deal had called for Bain Capital, a private equity firm based in Boston, to join with a Chinese company, Huawei Technologies, to acquire 3Com. The snag was that 3Com makes antihacking computer software for the military, among other things, and Huawei Technologies has ties to the Chinese military.”
Let’s talk ECONOMIC ESPIONAGE. What purpose could there be for China to want information like that? The fiat money currently in use by the industrial military complex’s puppets at the Federal Reserve put America in extreme danger of economic collapse. Intelligent ‘investment’ in America by her enemies could certainly create opportunities for them to collapse our economy just when it is most opportune for them.
Just as war technologies put America at a serious security risk, so also does international investment- particularly when it is our enemies that are funding our illegal wars.
Ron Paul, we NEED you to get our economics, and our national security, BACK ON THE RIGHT FOOTING!
