    Dear Lam,

    Government in US used to accuse China of industrial espionage through scientists who work in the country, coincidentally all of Chinese descend mostly from taiwan and china, by smuggling secretive technologies back to China. Now they no longer accuse them of doing that but instead try to cook up stories about China hacking into google email, US defense, car companies and what not. Do you ever wonder why they only accuse China of doing that? Aren’t other countries interested to advance their capabilities such as India, Russia, Israel, Pakistan, Iran? They do not have the capability to do so? They are all very righteous to do it and only China among hundreds of other countries in the world evil enough to do it? If this site pays you to write article, I would expect you to do research first before putting anything down. Don’t just copy everything from the western media without questioning. You are also doing what you always accuse Chinese media of doing, propagating US government.
