They are ON THE OTHER SIDE, people
Report: Iran got U.S. military communications tech from Russia, ChinaRussia and China have supplied sensitive U.S. telecommunications technology to Iran and its terrorist surrogate Hizbullah, according to an Israel report.
The Israeli website Sigint reported May 14 that a secret Hizbullah telecommunications network is based on U.S. technology, specifically encoding and military communications ciphering gear is being used by Hizbullah and Syrian intelligence.
"According to preliminary suspicions, the sensitive information was stolen by a U.S. or foreign element and was transferred to the Soviet foreign intelligence agencies (SVR) and from there to Iran in exchange for money," the report said.
"As part of the military ties between Moscow and Tehran, the latter has undertaken in writing not to transmit the information to a third party -- a practice that is common in the military export market - but has not lived up to its word."
The Hizbullah network is based on fiber optics that are difficult to intercept. The network was installed by Iranian technicians.
U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating the compromise.
Anything which hurts the USA and its people -
is good for Russia
in the big zero sum great game that doesn't exist.
EVEN IF that means a nuclear detonation in Israel
or the USA
since they have judged
that a full scale nuclear war will not break out.
According to the report, in the past several weeks, Tehran and Damascus have pressured Hizbullah into keeping the communication network secret from the Lebanese government, since the re-export from Russia will complicate Syrian and Iranian ties with Moscow.
"According to well-founded preliminary information, the communication center is located on Syrian soil, branching out into Lebanon in a structure that has not yet been fully uncovered," the report said. "The assumption has been raised in the past few days that this is a system that links Hizbullah to the Syrian intelligence; however, the reason for the great secrecy around it has not yet been clarified."
The report stated that the network is a "well-greased command and control alignment" that is harden against disruption or interception.
The network indicates that there is an effective intelligence link between Russia and Iran with the direct partnership of Syria and Hizbullah.
The report said that U.S. design and communication technology have been compromised by industrial espionage from Russia and China spying on U.S., European and other companies involved in innovative technology.
