Critical U.S. stealth technology transfer

  1. U.S. intelligence apparently failed to figure out how quickly the Chinese were developing their newest fifth generation J-20 stealth fighter, which U.S. government analysts now say was based on critical U.S. stealth technology transfers that happened while Bill Clinton was president, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

    Vice Adm. David Dorsett, director of naval intelligence, said that officials were aware of the development of the J-20, which is supposed to be comparable to the U.S. F-22 stealth fighter, but "the speed at which (the Chinese) are making progress, we underestimated."
  2. Are you kidding?

    The Chinese can build it faster, cheaper and better than the US.
    Over the past 30 years we have outsourced our manufacturing to them and gone through the pain of cheap chinese knock offs to better than US quality builds.

    We have essentially done the same with India for IT engineering / BPO's over the past 15 years. How many 2000 seat call centers still exist in the US?

    Our innovative strengths from the 50's have long retired and our Generation X-Box can't compete with the Asians.

    But we are great at sports... Baseball, Football.. a country of beer guzzling jocks.
  3. But did USA outsource stealth technology and other military technology to china and other countries? This is the most important question because the chinese stealth fighter is almost similar to USA stealth fighter.

    Copy and paste is easy and immediate. Maybe that is the reason the chinese stealth fighter was deveploped very fast.

    Their stealth technology is 30 years behind the curve, they are racing to build what is becoming obsolete.

    If we can build it, I'm sure we know how to defeat it, what we have behind closed doors, no one can guess.
  5. If you read the buy American clause in our govt's procurement contracts all that is required is 51% of the final price be American... Essentially allowing our contractors to buy Chinese products or contract foreign suppliers.. slap their logo on it and mark it up > 51% of their cost.

    The feds are in compliance because the dollars are awarded to an alleged American Manufacturer.

    Anything with magnets... motors are all foreign components.

    India, China and Brazil have Free Trade Zones that operate like duty free zones for Manufacturing. Huge incentives / tax breaks, relief from labor laws are provided to multi nationals who use local labor and component suppliers to make their products. 80% of the production must be exported and 20% can be distributed in the local market.

    I don't care what kind of widget you make... US corporations are being lured into these foreign enterprise zones and our local states and cities are not competitive to retain the bulk of the business.

    The corps are shrewd and play both sides taking tax breaks and incentives from all. Acer got a $1 lease in San fran for a 10 acre complex near presidio for buildings and warehousing of their computer business plus various tax breaks. They still build in china and have our govt subsidize their us sales force. No ones got balls to gie them an all or nothing ultimatum.

    What good does it do us when 95% of their product is built overseas and the 5% sales operations are in the US on the US tax payers.

    Obviously Boeing is going to expand into china. They opened operations in South Carolina because labor is cheaper than Chicago or Washington. Still SC's $24 / hour labor and associated facilities cost can't compete with free facilities, tax free profits and $5 a day laborers.
  6. Many countries have technology behind closed doors (maybe not).
