You will find many more foreign owned companies in China than in the USA. We do not rely on other nations for defense production. In 2010 we exported 8,641 million of arms and imported 893 million. All US military hardware must be made in the USA with US materials.
China is MUCH more dependent on foreign defense production than the USA. The new Chinese CV, Shi Lang, was an incomplete Soviet hulk that was sold to China in 1998.
BTW wasn't there a ruckus raised a few years back about Marine one? Where were the rotors & main fuselage sections to be made? What about the recent outing of China chips in our defense systems? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2888925/posts Not a smart defense policy at all. China doesn't need to come over here and invade when we give them the means to knock us to our knees in technology espionage.
