Every Goverment Has These Spy Warnings... but love is blind.

via boingboing...
In this Chinese government comic book, women are warned that mysterious foreign strangers who pitch woo at them are secretly Western spies trying to get at their government secrets.

The reader is warned that they could go to jail for 10 years if they are foolish enough to let these Lotharios trick them into revealing state secrets.

It's a charmingly sexist and xenophobic piece of work, with shades of Jack Chick. More interesting is the parallels to the materials that the US Government has produced for their own employees to warn them about the spies who might use breached data from the Office of Personnel Management to chat them up at conferences and trick them out of America's state secrets. more
