Espionage!

This is coolbert:

"Law enforcement struggles to combat Chinese spying"

Read this article about Chinese espionage in the U.S. This particular "incident" is just the tip of the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Or so I fear. Chi Mak, a SENIOR ENGINEER working on advanced propulsion systems for American submarines, has been convicted of espionage on behalf of the Chinese and is going to prison for up to ten years.

"Chi Mak, 66, who was born in Guangzhou, was educated in Shanghai and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1985. He obtained a "secret"-level security clearance in 1996."

"Mak, a senior engineer working on power systems for Navy submarines"

"Mak's work centered on the Quiet Electric Drive, a Navy program intended to outfit submarines with propulsion systems that would be quieter and thus harder to detect."

[this is the American version of Air Independent Propulsion!!??]

NOT ONLY was Mak involved, but his wife AND SON also were accomplices.

"His wife, Fuk Li, 49, is expected to receive probation for aiding and abetting the illegal exports."

"Their son, Yui Mak, 27, who helped encrypt the disks his parents were carrying in their luggage, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting and is expected to be placed on probation."

The wife and son are receiving PROBATION??!! PROBATION!!?? That is it??!! FOR APPROXIMATELY THE SAME CRIMES, AIDING AND ABETTING, ETHEL ROSENBERG WAS PUT TO DEATH!!!

And beyond the immediate family, there is another person involved in this "spy ring"? A Mr. Greg Chung? An engineer working at Boeing. A man now also under investigation.

"Greg Chung, an engineer for Boeing (BA)."

"documents found in Mak's home dealing with the F-16 fighter and NASA's space shuttle were from programs that Chung had worked on at Boeing."

Mak! Chung! It IS a trademark characteristic signature of Chinese intelligence TO WORK ONLY WITH OTHER ETHNIC CHINESE.

[Whether it is native-born Chinese, a naturalized U.S. citizen or ABC [American-Born-Chinese], it does not matter. For the various Chinese intelligence services [I am assuming that there ARE a number of them], CHINESE ONLY NEED APPLY!! All others stay away. ARE NOT trusted!!]

That Chinese intelligence WILL WORK ONLY WITH OTHER ETHNIC CHINESE IS A TOPIC SPOKEN ABOUT ONLY IN HUSHED TONES, AND THEN HESITANTLY SO EVEN THEN!!??

Given how many highly serious breaches of national security have been occurring by those with relatives living in China, the government should use ethnic profiling for a dragnet of all such people with access to sensitive information, accumulating information on each, and their relatives. This would result in database on several thousand Chinese-related engineers, academics, students, military and defense contractor employees, which can then be scanned for contacts with known operatives of China. The situation is already so serious that only the WWII spying for Russia surpasses it, perhaps. They are probably currently doing something like this, but on a much smaller scale, and probably crippled by a 'we don't do ethnic profiling', anti-discrimination attitude, which should get the terminate with extreme prejudice order.
