+ - GAO Sting Finds More Fake Military Parts From China-> 1

Submitted by Nidi62
Nidi62 (1525137) writes "The GAO, through a fictitious company, recently requisitioned parts from China in order to determine if the Chinese government was living up to its promises of battling counterfiet parts. The report from the GAO found that "
334 of 396 vendors who offered to sell parts to the fictitious company were from China" and that "
all 16 parts eventually purchased by the fake company came from 13 China-based vendors and all were determined by an independent testing laboratory to be counterfeit." The parts requested were supposedly for use in F-15s, MV-22 Ospreys, and nuclear submarines, and were asked to be new parts. It also says that over the past 3 years, over 1 million counterfeit parts have been found to have come from Chinese companies. This stands in sharp contrast to the Chinese government's promise to clamp down on the production of counterfeit parts in China"

  • To paraphrase Greg Proops: "Oh, you will miss the Americans when the Chinese take over." Usians only have some 200-odd years of jingoism, not dynasties worth, nor do we believe we created every invention or concept in human history before anyone else.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
