There is more trouble, developing in the relations between the USA and China currently. The reason is the exclusive Boeing-767 airliner, made in the USA for the Chinese leader Jiang Zemin.
As the Financial Times newspaper wrote, the specialists from the Chinese counter-intelligence found over 20 eavesdropping devices on board the plane, even in the toilet and in the bed of China’s leader. The bugs were found during the test flights, when they interfered in the radio station of the plane. It turned out that the spying devices had the separate sources of power and could transmit the information directly to a satellite.
As the people from Jiang’s milieu asserted, Jiang Zemin went totally mad, when he found out about that. Well, they are rather naive, the Chinese. What else were they expecting from the Americans? That the plane will be totally clean, like the new-born child? If they did such a stupid thing – ordered a plane from the Americans, then they will get a flying spy center, to carry the leader of the Chinese people on board. It would be better, if the Chinese examined the plane again, maybe they would find something more interesting there, taking into consideration the fact that the Chinese already have the experience with spy planes. They should have ordered a plane from Russia. We would get the money, and they would get a good plane, with no bugs.
