    Over a million engineering graduates each year, great educational achievements (basically win the IMO every year), great environment for growth and innovation but somehow they are reduced to just making stuff after western blueprints...IQ is obv not an issue since it's on par with Japan and SK, yet these two are some of the most innovating countries in the world. They have the brain power and the numbers so what the heck is going on?

    Not as good at hacking as the billion chinese.

    It also takes resources. I would assume these two organizations use theirs slightly differently. If anything, probably more to defend against cyber spying rather than committing it.

    And yet how many famous Chinese mathematicians do you know?

    Typical example of how Chinese rote-learn rather than learn to learn.

    Where have the NSA or GCHQ recently launched cyber attacks in order to steal technology?

    Plently of examples where China has done that tho, particularly in the military sector.

    They are a nation of copycats.

    "The U.S. is “still the best” at cyber warfare, he said. “If we want to go on offense, a whole bunch of countries would have significant problems.”

    Why do all the expensive leg work innovating something when you can just let others do it and copy the finished product whilst selling for a fraction of the price

    i never said they stole technology via the nsa/gchq. you're just illiterate. i said they have the capability of launching cyber attacks.

    they have no patent laws. the western world says that patents hinder innovation. which is it? is the ability to use someone elses invention good or bad?

    why make something, patent it, then let no one else make something similar good? look at the us health industry. it's broken due to corrupt firms.
