China's new intelligence tactics: Chinese students spy on US military bases


The United States continues to regularly detain Chinese citizens at military bases of the US armed forces. The arrested are represented by students. There are many such cases and they occur throughout the country.


In January 2020, two young men of Asian appearance appeared in the area of ​​the Key West naval base. Ignoring the demands to stop, they drove past the base, and the military police staged a 30-minute chase and detained strangers. They were students of the University of Michigan, Yuhao Wang and Jilong Zhang - both citizens of the PRC. Military police found photographs of a military object taken on a camera and a mobile phone from the detainees.

A little earlier in the Key West area, another Chinese citizen, one Lu Liao, was detained. He walked around the perimeter fence of the base and tried to enter the base from the water, ignoring security warnings. Liao claims he tried to photograph the sunrise, but American investigators doubt it.

Key West base, which is causing such increased interest among the Chinese, is an airfield used by the sea aviation US Navy. It is here that new unmanned underwater and aviation systems are tested, which are created for the needs of the US Navy and are very interested in the Chinese side.

Also at the airport in Key West, a Composite 111 fighter squadron of the US Navy is deployed. In military maneuvers of naval aviation, it usually plays the role of an “aggressor,” that is, American fighters learn to act against it. China, for a long time, has been interested in the tactics of aerial combat of American naval aviation, since the likelihood of a collision with it in the Asia-Pacific region is very high. US aircraft carriers are in the Pacific Ocean, penetrate into the South China Sea. In addition, the Taiwan issue remains extremely relevant. Everyone knows that Taiwan receives a fair amount of military assistance from the United States and in Beijing they are interested in the opportunities that a “rebellious island” can gain thanks to American military support.

China is also particularly interested in training American special operations forces, as Beijing suspects that these forces may be used against Chinese interests in Taiwan. Special operations force bases are also under the scrutiny of numerous Chinese students.

Of course, at first glance, the most clumsy and amateurish actions of "woe-spies" with mobile phones are puzzling. But in China, apparently, they believe that any means will be suitable against the Americans, including the actions of such "photographers" at American military bases. Ten people will be caught, and three “students” will be able to hide and bring photographs of military facilities.

By the way, there are many Chinese students in the USA. Thousands of young Chinese citizens are sent annually to graduate in the United States of America. And of course, given the Chinese political system, they can undergo special training, receive certain tasks. The American authorities cannot check all young students for trustworthiness, but it is impossible to prohibit studies - there are no formal grounds, and Chinese students significantly enrich the American market for educational services.

Of course, students are not the only Chinese intelligence tool in an attempt to discover American military secrets. It is clear that China is developing a much more serious intelligence activity - the American leaders themselves admit that in recent years the Celestial Empire has managed to capture a large number of American technological secrets. Although this can only be a complex of pride, it is difficult for Americans to admit that Asians are no less capable in the field of developing high technologies and putting them into practice.

    In principle, that’s how Chinese intelligence works. Perhaps even effective if they do not cancel such tactics with students.

        In a good mood and decent drinking, one Communist of the People's Republic of China admitted how he kept secrets when he was a student in the USSR / Russia, he said he was afraid of the City Council to shiver, but he did it ..... He still asks to bring in the hotel - brown bread and condensed milk - as pleasant memories of those times and of our country ..
        By the way, exactly, this comrade, upon returning to China, received a small enterprise as a reward from the party and now he is a Big Man ... he has become a capitalist ...
        A student-scout - as an option to get out into people (in China), if you're lucky ...

      - we will cross the border in small groups of 8 - 9 million people each.

      I'm certainly not an expert in intelligence.
      But it seems to me that most of the children of our leaders and officials, being patriots of Russia, carry out espionage in the countries of residence.
      Their fathers and mothers sent them there to fulfill their holy duty.
      The main thing to remember all of them by name and surname.
      And then, suddenly that, and there is no hero.
      This is a sad joke or a cruel sarcasm.

      And the fact that Chinese students are spying in the United States is not surprising and reprehensible.

They were kicked out a year ago, but the ecology apparently needs decades to recover, not even algae. in general, there is no living ... and below, water intakes ... apparently they caught on time, but the consequences? just look at what’s happening to the children, completely autism, do you understand what that means? nation-ending..stay-territory.

      We have this period, from 12 to 20! The appearance of military units, facilities is secret. Yes, we live nearby, we observe every day, but we don’t have to take pictures, especially with the aim of transferring it to the special services of another state. fellow 275, 276 of the Criminal Code.

    Taking into account that in the USA there is a huge Chinese diaspora, the fight against spy students is futile, I remember trying to isolate the Japanese diaspora during the WWII and drove them to reserve camps, if anything happened, there were about 4 million Chinese people, not counting illegal immigrants, will be waiting for the same fate ???

    And, you in the USA arrogantly believe that political "hawks" (members of the "war" party) are this property only of you? Or did Pearl Harbor teach nothing? So, you know, by boldness and cruelty, the Chinese will not yield a gram to the Japanese.

        hi
        Yes, that’s what I found about it in open sources (https://russian7.ru/post/skolko-kitayskikh-naemnikov-voeval/)
        The established number of inhabitants of China who served as part of the Red Army is 40 thousand. The red commanders recalled the diligence, equanimity and cruelty of the Chinese fighters, which were actively used by the Bolsheviks not only in military operations, but also during the terror.

      Since childhood, I know that there were enough Chinese spies in our neighboring territory. I lived on the Trans-Baikal Railway, and many Chinese lived with us. One legless Chinese invalid, seemingly foolish, was constantly sitting near the station and selling fans, a rooster on a stick, balls on an elastic band. It seems harmless. After Damansky, I learned that he was a spy. The border guards knew about this, but they did not touch him, because they would remove him, they would send another.

    I wonder what secrets can be found wandering along the fence of a military base. You will learn more from the Internet. Well, if, of course, it’s just a fantastic assumption in a row whether they’d think of looking through Google planet ..... it’s really beyond the bounds.
    This is to the fact that some kind of news is sucked out of a finger.

      Just remembered. In 2001, we went to China to Dalian, suddenly our guides, there were 2 women, got excited, somewhere ran all on the nerves. It turned out that the couple went for a walk around the city, began to take pictures near some buildings, brave soldiers flew out, twisted them, threw them into prison. It turned out to be a checkpoint of some military unit; these two were almost deported. In general, these Sinologists are not a step away from the group.
