here's a strange thought

What if the recent hacker attack by China against South Korea was part of a larger Chinese-North Korean effort to sniff out SK defense capabilities in preparation for an attack? This of course implies that China and NK have a behind-the-scenes agreement to act together. Recent news about the French willingness to sell arms to China, and about China's continued efforts both to update and increase its own defense capabilities (well beyond mere defense needs) is cause for a bit of possibly-paranoid speculation. Whenever people want to accuse America of imperialism, I just roll my eyes and point the accuser toward China, where they can see the real thing.
