Cyber War – Who is the Enemy?

China rejects claims of Internet hacking attacks by Gillian Wong, Associated Press Writer.

Why is it that everything that happens in China is that government’s fault?

At least that’s how the Western media and politicians seem to report it. If the Chinese government is to blame for what every Chinese citizen does, then every senator, congressmen, Supreme Court justice and the president of the United States are responsible for everything happening in America.

China has every right to deny they are responsible. After all, where is the evidence? I always thought people were considered innocent until proven guilty. Shouldn’t governments have the same right. Isn’t that the foundation of American justice? China has a huge population using the Internet. Anyone could be doing this.

In fact, there are 485 million Internet users in China, more than any other country in the world.

How would you like to keep track of 1.3 billion people? Heck, the government of the United States can’t even control its people, and I know that China does not control their people as much as many in the West want to believe it does.

Here’s an example of what happens when Yellow journalism in the West and politicians stir the pot. One Blogger Who Found Them Guilty is evidence that “simple” minds jump to conclusions based on propaganda, which is a two way street.

In addition Hacker says, “The United States currently leads as the country that suffered the most attacks in regards to online cyber threats with 35% of these aimed at citizens of the US; the US was also the country that hosted the most attacks, with 60% of phishing attacks starting from the US.”

Then there is this ranking of countries that are good in computer programming and the best in computer hacking. First place goes to Russia.

2. India
3. Poland
4. The United States of America …
15. China

However ranks the United States tops in malicious Internet activity, the number one country of orgin for Web-based attacks in 2009, accounting for 34 percent of the worldwide total.
