(Natural News) China’s global espionage operations have ramped up over the past decade and are now “off the scale.” This is according to Nicholas Eftimiades, a former senior U.S. intelligence official, who has been analyzing Beijing’s espionage activities for about three decades.

Eftimiades noted that China has been involved in more than 600 espionage cases over the past decade. These cases included theft of trade secrets, illegal export of key technologies for national security, cyberhacking and traditional spying.

More disturbingly, western governments have mostly been ignoring these for years. Talking to The Epoch Times, he said that the U.S. and other Western countries ignored his warnings about Chinese espionage when he first wrote about the subject in his 1994 book titled “Chinese Intelligence Operations.”

It was only during the current administration of President Donald Trump that the country started to understand the threat from China. Given that America’s response against Chinese espionage had been “lacking” for the past decade, intelligence and enforcement agencies have had to catch up.

The intelligence analyst said there was almost no way of finding out the full extent of Beijing’s spy efforts and noted that it could range from tens of thousands of cases up to hundreds of thousands.

Eftimiades explained that China has adopted a “whole-of-society” approach to obtaining foreign intellectual property (IP) through state agencies, state-owned enterprises, private enterprises and individual researchers. A substantial chunk of the foreign IP theft focused on aviation, information technology, energy and new materials – key sectors mentioned in the Chinese government’s “Made in China 2025” industrial policy.

American response to Chinese espionage “not very good”

According to Eftimiades, America’s response to Chinese espionage has “not been very good.” He cited multiple instances of intelligence officers being recruited to spy for the communist country.

Federal authorities arrested Baimadajie Angwang, a naturalized U.S. citizen, last September for allegedly spying for China. Angwang used his position as a New York City Police Department officer to report on the activities of ethnic Tibetans at the behest of Chinese Consulate officials. Later that month, a federal judge denied bail to the former police officer over concerns that Angwang will seek protection from the Chinese Consulate if released from custody.

Less than a year before Angwang’s arrest, authorities bagged a naturalized citizen who planned to share sensitive information with China. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, a former officer of the Central Intelligence Agencywas sentenced to 19 years in prison in November 2019. The Hong Kong-born Lee pleaded guilty in May to the charge of conspiring to deliver information to Chinese agents – who promised to take care of him “for life” if he provided the information they needed.

Chinese espionage extends to cyberspace

Aside from recruiting individual operatives, the Chinese government has performed cyber-espionage efforts using both technology and human agents. Eftimiades described these efforts as “masterfully executed.”

The private sector, however, has yet to come to grips with the extent of Chinese espionage.

“Western industries as a whole remain quite ignorant of what’s happening,” Eftimiades said, adding that he was “routinely surprised” by the “lackadaisical” response of industries not related to defense technology.

He cited a report by U.S. cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike outlining an operation by Chinese hackers, intelligence officers and company staff members to obtain key aviation technology data. Orhcestrated by a branch of China’s Ministry of State Security, the operation managed to get data from a number of aviation companies over a five-year period. (Related: 5 Chinese nationals charged with hacking more than 100 companies worldwide.)

Despite moves by federal authorities to stop Chinese espionage, Eftimiades said that the U.S. is still likely “very deeply penetrated.”

With this in mind, a stronger response is needed to address China’s in both the real world and in cyberspace to ensure U.S national security is not undermined.

But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES. 2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12.

      Another Situationy Update ™ from Monkey, er Mikey (my apologies to the Monkey). :lol:

      Remember what I said about the Chinese? You should never EVER trust them. They are your mortal enemy and their thinking about themselves is totally WARPED if you ever read Chinese history.

      They are sneaky little basturds and totally corrupted by their own philosophy of being Chinese but hence also lies their EASY defeat.

      Do not be surprised they are doing this. Do not be surprised they are investigating EVERY crAzY way to defeat you. They have also cataloged every individual of even minor importance from where the Police Chief lives to your loco musician.

      They EXPECT to defeat you and take over. They are HERE already infiltrating every aspect of your society. They are SICK uckfers – get use to it.

      And don’t get me started on Faucteeth. There should be NO conclusion but to hang the little uckfer. But since you guyz didn’t even do it when the Negro was made “President” (and dat’s what YOU even called him) I expect, therefore, for Faucteeth to be given even MORE power in your guy’z sickness to DIE! :cool:

      And I’m outta here……. :lol:

      Mike – is this report about CCP drones as reliable as the time you said there were 10s of thousands of Chinese troops hiding in shipping containers that were going to start a kinetic ground assault on inauguration day? Asking for a friend.
