China and Iran: Who to Watch

Two emerging threats to this nation, China and Iran were in the news this weekend, continuing their shinanigans.

It was confirmed today that China successfully hacked into parts of the Pentagon’s computer network back in June.  It was a “complicated attack,” or the kind the defense Department hates.  This kind of stuff happens all the time with the People’s Liberation Army in China (I love the names of stuff over there: “people” this and “people” that, it’s like they’re trying to hide something), but we’re either getting complacent, we’re just not as good as they are, or it was a lucky hack.  We really need to get on this.  I have said for a long time that military war with China would destroy us both:  nukes and economic calamity and such.  However, there are other ways to bring a nation down.  Spying, hacking, economic competition in the same markets all make China a rival, if not an enemy– one we can talk to though.

Iran, on the other hand, is not so predictable.  This Washington Times editorial from Arnaud de Borchgrave indicates that our next major shooting war could very well be with Iran.  I’m really not sure about this one.  I’d welcome the open threat.  I’d welcome chasing the IRG back over the border and blowing them up if they wander into Iraq.  Sarkozy was bold in a recent speech about a possible strike on Iran.  Israel is keeping their jets fueled as we speak for the OK.  We keep moving carrier battle groups into the region.  At some point it has to look like something’s eventually going to happen. 

Unlike China whose government doesn’t let anyone believe in God, the mullah’s in Iran believe God wants them to kill the infidels.  I’d much rather trust the godless communists watching out for their own butts, than a bunch of wacked-out mullahs trying to push each other through the doors of heaven faster.
