"The United States cannot pretend that it is the victim."

There is not one crime here.

"The United States cannot pretend that it is the victim. They are a hacker empire. I think everyone in the world knows this," spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

Nor is there one victim. The US is a victim; so is China; both are also perpetrators.

"Georgie did it first!" "Xi did it worst!" is banter that shouldn't come out of the mouths of anyone over ten years old, yet this is where our governments are in their moral development.

The very sad thing here is that, with our democratically-elected government, we have nobody to blame but ourselves.

Wongs or wrongs?

Wongs or wrongs? But you are right, sadly so many governments and silly religions seem to think two wrongs do make a right.

Khakis?

I had always thought "khaki" was a tan color, not the dark green color in the photo. That looks like olive drab to me.

Re: Khakis?

"Khaki," like "teal," applies to an unfortunately wide range of colors.

Like you, I also tend to prefer color names that are a little more specific.

First Unit 61398 get the PR via Mandiant, now Unit 61486 takes it's turn, let's see if the other 10 (currently) identified Units within Third Department (3PLA) get a shot at a Reg headline as well. If they do, expect the associated elements (with similar tasking) of 2PLA and 4PLA to grumble. ;-)

So let me get this straight:

The US have been shown to operate (via infiltration) most of the routers in the world.

Following this, we are supposed to believe that the attacks originate in China?

I'm confused.

That 'vodka' is 56% (112 proof) 'ergo tou', the Beijing worker's booze, made from sorghum ('gao liang' - watch Zhang Yimou's movie for its effect :-)). Tastes like bad grappa, cost around 2EUR/L (!).

Worker's paradise...

Feels a bit like a false flag op. You'd think a professional hacker would be better at social engineering bits.
