USA charging Chinese military officials for economic espionage cyber crimes


The USA has reportedly filed charges Chinese officials for engaging in cyber crime:

The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against several Chinese government officials, accusing them of stealing American trade secrets through cyber espionage, according to U.S. officials familiar with the case.

It’s the first time the United States has brought hacking charges against a state actor…

The charges will name several individuals who are Chinese government employees, according to a U.S. official. “They used military and intelligence facilities to commit cyber espionage against U.S. companies,” the official said…

The Obama administration has long considered China the most aggressive nation in obtaining industrial secrets through spying.

“Chinese actors are the world’s most active and persistent perpetrators of economic espionage,” said the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, a U.S. government agency, in a 2011 report.

John Carlin, recently installed as head of the Justice’s National Security Division, earlier this year cited prosecution of state-sponsored cyber-threats as a key goal for the Obama administration.

U.S. officials have accused China’s army and China-based hackers of launching attacks on American industrial and military targets, often to steal secrets or intellectual property. China has said that it faces a major threat from hackers, and the country’s military is believed to be among the biggest targets of the NSA and U.S. Cyber Command.

Last September, President Barack Obama discussed cybersecurity issues on the sidelines of a summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

White House spokesman Ben Rhodes said at the time that Obama had addressed concerns about cyber threats emanating from China. He said Obama told Xi the U.S. sees it not through the prism of security but out of concern over theft of trade secrets.

While I do not doubt that Chinese officials have been engaged in cyber espionage related to USA based organizations, there are a couple of issues here of potentially economic and prophetic interest.

First of all, the Chinese lend the USA lots of money.  One US government report said it was around USD1.1 trillion ($1,100,000,000,000).  If the Chinese attempt to redeem this at once, it could negatively affect the USA.  It may well be that the officials that the USA is targeting are some that the current President of China, Xi Jinping, wants removed (he has an anti-corruption campaign) so that China will not take any serious public steps against the USA for this.

Since China holds over a trillion dollars in US Treasuries, it could cause economic disruption to the USA any time it wishes.  The hope in Washington is that China will not do this as it would hurt its own economy.  But China does with to dethrone the USA (see also China calls for ‘de-Americanisation’ of the world and points to USA debt crisis).

Notice some of what I wrote in my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term:

Interestingly, one foreign creditor, China, has raised concerns about the U.S. debt that are so serious,  that its potential dumping of that debt has been called China’s “nuclear option” (Gertz B,  China Debt Threat.  Washington Times, March 2, 2011) against the U.S.A.—an option that involves no military intervention, but that could greatly harm the U.S.A. The Bible clearly warns against cheapening the money supply and encourages having it hold its value (Proverbs 25:4 Isaiah 1:25, Ezekiel 22:18-22).  Barack Obama’s policies, following certain other administrations, have ignored these warnings.

And while China will not yet drop what it has called its ‘nuclear option,’ the reality is that China wants the USA to be pushed down and is taking steps to help make that happen.  And the USA is letting it.  The debt situation in the USA is ultimately going to lead to massive disaster (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).

But the point I wanted to focus on is that the USA is being a bit hypocritical.

The USA spies on almost everybody. And since the Snowden leaks, almost everybody has been made aware of this.

One of the reasons that the Germans are upset with the USA is that not only does the USA spy more on Germany than most other nations, it also conducts industrial/commercial espionage against Germany.  Germany’s Angela Merkel has repeatedly asked the USA not to do this (see Chancellor Merkel meeting with Barack Obama: Germans disgruntled with USA), but without the degree of success she wants.  This caused the German parliament to ask to speak with whistle-blower Edward Snowden (see Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg on CNN tells of selective anti-Americanism growing in Germany) and is leading to an increase of anti-American sentiment in parts of the German establishment that historically has not voiced those sentiments (see Germany wants to talk with Edward Snowden).  Because of German mistrust of the USA, some have called for a stronger Europe (see Der Spiegel: Germans cannot trust USA, so the answer is European prominence)–and this is something that the Bible warns about (e.g. Daniel 11:36-43).

In the past, the USA has been accused of hypocrisy related to its cyber and other espionage.  The Bible warns that the Germans (called Assyria in certain end time prophecies) will end up destroying “an hypocritical nation.”


5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.

8 For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings?  (Isaiah 10:5-8, KJV)

Notice that the Assyrian goes against a hypocritical nation.  Is not the so-called “land of the free” and “home of the brave” being hypocritical when it has to spy on everyone and everything it practically can?  Is it not hypocritical when it tells so-called ‘developing nations’ to get out of debt and pay debt back, while it continually increases its own?

This does not bode well for the USA.  Nations will gang up against it.  Ultimately, despite its military strength, it will be taken over (Daniel 11:39).  Partially, because of its hypocrisy (Isaiah 10:6-8).

Will USA Spying Help the Beast Power? Various allegations have surfaced about the United States government spying on its own citizens as well as its supposed allies in the European Union. Whether or not all the espionage allegations are true, and the main ones have not been publicly denied by the government of the USA, the reality is that this does have prophetic ramifications and will help the Beast of Revelation. This video provides quotes from the Bible showing how this is so. The USA is placing itself in a position to be taken over and its response to the allegations will make it easier for the Europeans to do so.
