I think the US is currently under attack and we are not doing enough to prevent it.

A big one.
The thing that concerns me the most is the cost.

Like the Cold War, countries will try to outlast each other in spending for defense.
Relentless cyber attacks and defense are expensive.

Ha! After WWII countries tried to attract the best scientists from Germany.

I can now see that happening with 'Hackers'.

The Programmers I know have told me Hacking is what the Chinese excel at. They don't have the best Computer Chips or the best Engineers. They have people working for the Government that are Hackers. They are Professional Hackers and thief's. The US Governments Firewalls suck. China does not use windows? Why does our Government?
Sadly Kraven this is true.
The Chinese are calculated and determined to undermine us and this why our Economy sucks. There people work for so little and work endlessly to steal all they can from us.
It is not the people. It is their Government and our Leaders have done nothing to stop China, Russia or India.
We need Laws that prevent this and Better Firewalls ASAP!!!

Actually, we don't know that they've got the best hackers, or that they're doing the most hacking.
I'm sure our guys are doing a lot of it too.... we just aren't told about it.
Unfortunately, it's kinda like they're stealing from Tiffany's and we're stealing from Walmart.

Yeah, the Government does have to go all out regarding cyber security.
Just like in a physical war, ya leave one flank unguarded and you're screwed.

China, Russia and India clearly have the best Hackers. Their primary target is the US Pentagon, Military, Banking, wealthy Americans and corporations. Our infrastructure is also a target. China bought down the East Coast Grid in 2001.
Our so called Leaders have done little to prevent this.
Obama is busy placating Terrorist and nations that support them. The R Wing is busy making money, Scape Goating the Middle Class and kissing other nations asses. We have No Leaders looking out for the best interest of legal American's. They all answer to the Lobbyist which include Foreign Investors.
Few American's are willing to face this and start doing all we can to prevent it. I blame both parties and a complete lack of foresight, determination and Leadership.
Congress, the Presidents not just Obama and those running are a bunch of self serving gutless, worthless fools.
We must do everything we can immediately to make all American Government Systems more secure.
