I realize India is friendlt to the US but they are also working with China to develop a fighter jet. The American companies will probably get a government subsidie to move American jobs over there.
John Ratzenberger summed it up best when he said It' going to be damned hard to fight a war against the son-of-a- bitches making your planes and spare parts. Not the exact quote but you get the idea.

Might as well. That's where the tech support call center is for it.

It's almost impossible to manufacture anything here in the US due to regulation, taxes, wages.

actually thats pakistan thats involved in the fighter developement with china... they don't have the money to combat their terrorist , but they have money to throw at a plane.. basicly we are paying pakistans end of the bills.
india buys most of their military hardware from russia , but the US try's to push ours hard on em. hence the suck up move.

yeah our government is pretty generous with taxpayers money. about 4 billion a year to israel , 2 billion to egypt , but yet when they're looking for budget cuts , slashing the foreign welfare checks is never on their option list. they cut the worthless programs like education . why piss away american tax dollars on americans ?

I find this infuriating. It's like the bully giving his milk money to the weak kid so the weak kid will be his friend.
