A Lileks Screed
Spontaneous Suffering


Washington Times:

The FBI has been unable to find out who in the U.S. government supplied China with secrets on every deployed nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal, including the W-88, the small warhead used on U.S. submarine-launched nuclear missiles.

[Emphasis mine]

How could anyone even get access to all of this information?

Also see this article. I wrote a small research paper on the Chinese economy in 2001. I was surprised by the massive difference in the workings of the economy in 1978 and in 2000. Over the course of two decades the Communists had transformed the whole country from communism to fascism. An Interesting tidbit: the Chinese regime allowed small private businesses called getihu from 1978 but with a small caveat. A maximum of 8 people could work in a getihu. Of course, this asinine law was modified later.

Yet, I still read of people referring to China as communist over the past few years. Finally, it's being acknowledged openly that China is no longer a communist state. It's a fascist one. In my book that's more dangerous because we have a combination of unaccountable regime elites and a rapidly growing economy. Add a dash of nationalism and we get a disaster-in-the-making.

The Japanese and Australians must be viewing China with great concern. Of the Western nations, these two will bear the brunt of Chinese aggression.
