Continuous cyber warfare by China against the USA shown accidentally on Chinese TV

"A standard, even boring, piece of Chinese military propaganda screened in mid-July included what must have been an unintended but nevertheless damaging revelation: shots from a computer screen showing a Chinese military university is engaged in cyberwarfare against entities in the United States.

The documentary itself was otherwise meant as praise to the wisdom and judgment of Chinese military strategists, and a typical condemnation of the United States as an implacable aggressor in the cyber-realm. But the fleeting shots of an apparent China-based cyber-attack somehow made their way into the final cut.

The screenshots appear as B-roll footage in the documentary for six seconds—between 11:04 and 11:10 minutes—showing custom-built Chinese software apparently launching a cyber-attack against the main website of the Falun Gong spiritual practice, by using a compromised IP address belonging to a United States university. As of Aug. 22 at 1:30pm EDT, in addition to Youtube, the whole documentary is available on the CCTV website.

The screenshots show the name of the software and the Chinese university that built it, the Electrical Engineering University of China's People's Liberation Army—direct evidence that the PLA is involved in coding cyber-attack software directed against a Chinese dissident group.

The software window says "Choose Attack Target." The computer operator selects an IP address from a list—it happens to be 138.26.72.17—and then selects a target. Encoded in the software are the words "Falun Gong website list," showing that attacking Falun Gong websites was built into the software."

IMO: You can certainly see why the Chinese are illegally forcing smaller countries to return to China, people who have legally left China. This is totally illegal and contrary to international law. More of the documentary and other information, seems to make it clear that China are already at cyberwar with the US, like it or not. The cold war with Russia went on for years, during which the US was continually blackmailed for its natural resources by the then USSR. Now there is a cold war with China, like it or not, and US citizens are quietly being made aware of that. No wonder people like Wendy Deng (Rupe's wife - who still has the cheek to go back sometimes) got out, they knew what was good for them, all right.
