Wait, We Outsource Military Supply Contracts To CHINA?
by Dave Johnson | May 10, 2013 - 8:28am

We give away our jobs and factories and industries to China. Some geniuses apparently thought that meant we should also let our military security be contracted out to China as well.

A new report from the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), Remaking American Security, Authored by Brig. Gen. Adams (US Army, Retired) looks at supply chain weaknesses and chokepoints, to see how vulnerable our security is to disruption by China and other “potentially unreliable” foreign suppliers.

Yes, we farm out critical defense supply contracts to that China, the country that has been hacking into our computers.

~snip~

Here is just one example from the report: “The United States is completely dependent on a single Chinese company for the chemical needed to produce the solid rocket fuel used to propel HELLFIRE missiles.”

1. What could possible go wrong?

Get ready for the next round of "Free Trade".
It is being "negotiated" in secret as we speak.

2. Corporate profits and Congressional pay-offs are more important than the security of the USofA.

 

But let's persecute them nasty medical marijuana users.

The Revolution is waiting for the spark.
