How about "opening up an hole" leading to all the "toxic assets of U.S. Banks" with the "data" bearing brightly "colored" markers....

Not "someone", the Chinese military. When will everyone finally stop pussyfooting around and realize these folks are our enemies and are willing to do anything to destroy us?

I think breaking into computers to obtain information in a defensive attempt is far less evil than developing a joint strike fighter with hundreds of billions in dollars. It is also much cheaper. I wish USA was smarter in how it deployed its defense budget.

Why go through all that trouble when you can get the opponents consume tainted baby milk formulas, their pets to eat tainted pet foods, older children to play with lead-based toys, their construction workers to use construction cranes that would collapse during operations, building materials that last a few months......

I thought according to the Pentagon, Chinese can access the computer without it is turned on, so I am sure they can access those computers which aren't connected to the internet.
