if xi were to die tomorrow we’d have no idea who would replace him

Wouldn’t paying attention to China in a journalistic and academic mode be more effective to understanding China at much lower price than implementing a network of treasonous spies? It would certainly be less bellicose and more diplomatic.

US intelligence doesn’t seek to understand. It’s a corrupting agent. They don’t want to know who’s replacing Xi; they want to decide who’s replacing Xi.


Exactly right

I love this, it is why they love talking about transparency and GFW censorship.

The Chinese penetrated clandestine communications and used that knowledge to arrest and execute at least 20 CIA informants, according to multiple current and former government officials.

“It was a horrible, devastating loss to the intelligence community,” a former intelligence official said. “Lives were lost.”

Until even a decade ago, China’s collective leadership, with power more diffused among different factions and individuals, offered up an array of possible intelligence targets and a more fluid political environment.

“There was a wider circle of people that intelligence agencies might target. It’s a much more centralized, tight system now,” said a former senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the matter.

“Intelligence community” oh my fucking god do they seriously refer to their criminal cabal as a fucking “community” come on

I wish I could remember where I saw it but a few years ago there was an article in which the CIA was crying about how hard it is to spy on China because their counter-intelligence network keeps finding and executing spies, and I specifically remember a quote bemoaning the difficulty of recruiting people because “it’s hard to find willing people who know how to read Chinese.” Lmao

lmao maybe if they didn’t crack down on Confucius Institute branches (because of “soft power”) it would be easier for CIA spies to learn mandarin fucking dumbasses

Here’s an idea: Learn Chinese, become a CIA spy, learn/steal important info, defect to China the moment you get there and hand over any information you can.

Was it this one?


There have been a few similar articles over the last five years or so. It’s so satisfying seeing the crocodile tears and copium over seeing China beat the US at the game the US has claimed as exclusively its own.

I think the one I’m remembering had something about reading Chinese in the title but this was a good read too, thanks

Some former intelligence officials and regional experts are more optimistic about America’s ability to read China, as they say Xi and other senior communist officials often state publicly the goals and objectives of the regime.

Yeah that’s called democracy


‘If it weren’t for the Chinese openly sharing their plans for their country, our multi billion dollar secret service would never know what they are up to’

I was about to quote this same bit, like, wtf. You’re not “reading” anything, they’re TELLING you. And if these mfers actually studied a shred of MLism (even just to “know thy enemy”), everything Xi’s administration has done is painfully predictable. It’s like all the capitalists freaking out about how “unstable and unpredictable” dictator Xi is–who is he going to crack down on next??? ALL OF YOU, MORONS, and ESPECIALLY if you’re ffing the working class over. It’s not rocket science!


Turns out being a foreign agent in China doesn’t make you James Bond tracking down Francisco Scaramanga, it means pretending to be a communications engineer to snatch 5G intel and then getting a visit on a suspicion from the police at midnight asking you what the sine of 2pi/3 is, and you can’t answer because you failed trig classes as a kid despite your 7th grade maths teacher telling you to prepare for this very specific edge case

I could totally see myself getting executed for poor math performance 😔 guess I can never be a proper spook…


Don’t worry, we’ll hand you a “trotskyist” working for the NSA. And that NSA agent will get intel on the Mossad agent. And the Mossad agent will get intel on the Interpol agent. And the Interpol agent will get all of the intel on you. We communists believe in mutually beneficial solutions. /s
