    Default China is screwing us

    The John Bachelor show, w/ Gordon Chang made a revelation that should concern everyone. It seems that our domestic manufacturers and military manufacturers use chips and electronic components. made in China in about 30% of their products. To make a long story short, besides using cheap, inferior components that shorten the life of products, they are finding malware and spyware in these components.
    Mr. Chang, an American expert on China, stated that it is possible for the Chinese to plant a $1000.00 chip to bring down a billion dollar aircraft.
    Why is the government allowing any parts in our weapon systems, that is not made in this country? Is it not obvious that we are opening ourselves up to some real problems?

    The Chinese military must be thinking, "stupid Americans", we are selling them spyware and they are borrowing money from us to buy it.

    This is Sad indeed. It's happening in the private sector as well. AMC Theaters have just been purchased by a Chinese firm as well so every movie you view at AMC will bolster Chinese business.
    Adios AMC!

    Our infrastructure will soon be riddled with the chips as well. Not just bring down a aircraft, they could potentially bring down the entire country if and when they have enough devices in place.
    Its one thing to try and control where the devices come from in our military equipment. But try to control ALL the parts that go into creating our communications system, no way. You either have to ban all of it from everywhere outside the states, or assume it in here.
    If you allow it from Indonesia, Malaysia, Tiawan, where ever, it may still originate form China.

    You are right. Can you imagine the mess if our banking systems came down from multiple planted malware? If we can mess with Iran's nuke stuff, it can certainly be done to us.
