“As evidenced by this investigation, the threats we face have never been more pervasive or more potentially damaging to our national security. And no country poses a broader, more severe, and long-term threat to our nation’s economy and cyber infrastructure than China.
China’s goal, simply put, is to replace the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower—and they’re breaking the law to get there. They’re using an expanding set of non-traditional and illegal methods. And Chinese state-sponsored actors are the most active perpetrators of economic espionage against us.
In short, they seek to strengthen themselves and weaken the United States. And while we welcome fair competition, we cannot and will not tolerate illegal hacking, stealing, and cheating.
This is conduct that hurts American businesses, American jobs, and American consumers. The Chinese government’s not pulling any punches. They want what we have so they can get the upper hand on us. And they’re highly strategic in their approach—they’re playing the long game.”

Of course, this is reality.
China is the biggest cyber crime expert in the world including illegal hacking and what not.
As pointed out earlier, ‘digital colonization’ is the new buzzword. Earlier economic superpower used to ‘colonize’ weak countries and communities by force of power. Now ‘cyber superpower’ countries would ‘colonize’ weaker, unsafe and open countries and would play havoc on them including global order of peace and harmony.
US and China both play a sinister game at it. China is the new ‘super cyber power’ country in the world.
