China in Cuba, but there’s no danger, of course.

"Let's outsource domestic spying to China!"

Ever since a domestic surveillance program was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge, I pose three reasons why Beijing should pick up the slack. First, our Asian friends have the opportunity to do it for us... in Cuba, China operates a super-secret complex that eavesdrops on our satellite-based military transmissions, the messages contained in our home and business faxes and e-mails...even the toppings we order on home-delivered pizzas!

CIA agents in Cuba grew suspicious when large numbers of names like Yang Chow and Yo-Yo Qian booked into hotels in Havana in the late 1990's. Sure enough, a Chinese electronic espionage facility sprang up. In return, Beijing gave Castro electronic countermeasures to block Radio Marti from carrying pro-U.S. Radio~Miami and TV broadcasts into Cuba from Miami.

Satire, with a hint of truth. The hardliners are right once again...

    Solzhenitsen used to say that the communists can't even make a screw driver on their own that would work. I always wondered how they were able to develop weapons. It must be that they had the help of experts from elsewhere and from spies. But how come China is expert in technical things? They are communists.
    So much to be scared about. So little time.
