COMPELLING READ: David Sanger, David Barbozer and Nicole Perlroth of the New York Times have written a very revealing expose on China’s Peoples Liberation Army Unit 61398 and what the NYT calls “state-sponsored” hacking of “critical infrastructure of the United States”. This article is a strong wake up call on an issue that will no-doubt be a significant impediment to efforts to improve Sino-US ties. It is also telling of how a new “cold war” may unfold between Washington and Beijing as well as what the opening salvos might look like if conflict were to erupt.
