Advanced Persistent Threats: Made in China

RSA released a report on advanced persistent threats. Basically, we're all screwed. This coincides with a story today about Operation Shady RAT, the infiltration of the networks of 72 organizations going back several years. The attacks are attributed to a state actor, China. China seems to be behind all espionage and cyberware attacks, not to mention threats hidden in firmware and other components. I wonder why they're not blamed for financial hacks, too, but that seems to be Russians and Eastern Europeans.
