I've already blogged previously about the Chinese knock-off of our Aegis platform. This super-destroyer is geared for 21st century computerized warfare and is the front line of our carrier groups.

    Floodlights lit up the home of Chi Mak, 65, and his wife, Rebecca Laiwah Chiu, 64.

    Stunned neighbors felt there must be some mistake - that the quiet but friendly couple couldn't be criminals.

    But nearly two weeks later, the two related couples - Chi and Tai Mak are brothers - face federal charges of conspiracy and theft of government property.

    In a still-unfolding investigation, the four are accused of being "foreign intelligence operatives" who stole sensitive documents about U.S. Navy technology from Anaheim defense contractor Power Paragon, Chi Mak's employer."

    There are those out there who think it's ok for China to have parity with our armed forces. To them I reply "At least the USA doesn't use tanks against unarmed students."
