How the West was Pwned

Can you hear it? The giant sucking sound to the East? With it are going more than just manufacturing jobs -- it's our manufacturing know-how, intellectual property, military secrets, and just about anything you can think of. If we're so technologically advanced, how are the People's Republic of China (PRC) and others able to continue to pull this off? Why do we keep getting pwned at our own game?
There has been much talk about "cyberwar," but there may not be a war. If a victor can extract tribute from the vanquished, war isn't necessary. Today, intellectual capital is a proxy for tribute. We'll look at some specifics, including documents that outline the plan of attack, details about what operations have been run against us, and progress in efforts to create an international legal framework for when the bits start flying.
