    Looks like the Chinese have their own version of the predator.

    Maybe they'll be putting up drones all around the world just like us!

    I kinda wish that they'll go hunting in DC with their clones.

    There are at least 535 mouth breathers there. Quite possibly more. Many Many more.

    Gee it kind of looks similar to ours.

    Do not mistake the Chinese for stupid, they ain't. Their new aircraft are on par with ours. And if we don't get off our butts on the F35 or something else, they will be ahead of us in short order.

    I think most of the computer chips that the US buys are foreign made (mainly of Chinese in origin). Methinks that they are already ahead of us. We are all pretty suspicious of software programs, but how about hardware, can anyone say backdoor?

    I'm thinking more like a kill switch. Say good night Gracie. Planes, trains, automobiles, heart monitors, ventilators, the list goes on and on.

    Sometimes the lowest bid is not the best choice, especially when it's of national security interest.

    Maybe I'm just tinfoiling here, but if a lowly monkey can entertain the idea, smart money says a nation state could pull it off.

    I've been saying this for literally years. Makes total sense to me.

    Yes, the chips are built in China, as the process is way to dirty to be done cheaply in the USA. HOWEVER, the design of the Masks, and Chip Layers, is mostly done here and then sent to manufacturing, in China. This leaves the design Secrets, here, as well as the Process Engineering.

    Lets see how quick the flying wing drone gets copied. You know the one that was "shot down" over Iran !

    Stealing prototype plans can be a waste of money. Why bother when one can do better?

    What makes our toys better is the technology.

    China's attack would be cyber. No one except suicidal types want any of us; perhaps after 0bama destroys our military but not for a while.

    AFA, tin foiling?

    I put a lot more credence in us falling apart internally, up to our eyebrows in national debt with money which is next to worthless. As a result,
    food and energy will shy rocket. As our welfare system collapses there will be riots in the cities which will spread.

    Now that is quite believable, wasn't it. ;)

    I believe China took out a few Satellites before usa could even comprehend .
    China is the first in putting up satellites , France #2 , USA hates both !! even tho the Liberty was given by the "French" .
    China took out the first from firing a missile into space letting the dying Satellites hit the projectile. USA just needed to catch up in 2007.
    Fired from Pacific so the crap would burn up over Alaska .

    Years later after 3 other countries ..

    Whats needed is info that is not filtered or manipulated, Kaos Statistics Digital is one

    The US destroyed the first satellite. IMO, the "concerns" were more to prevent the US from developing a ICBM shield.
