Absolutely 100%. US capitalism at its finest. I stop here before I go on a two page rant 😐Im sure we would like to but since we squandered our even high tech manufacturing base over the course of the last 40 years, other governments have rightfully acknowledged that such capabilities are critical for national security and since we ceded any advantage we ever had, they wont make the same mistake. Our shortsightedness is their gain and they wont relinquish that willingly.
