    Right. And, I knew what you just stated above when Nixon was president and I was not old and wise (grin) like I am now. I could see the tech theft happening by them before it happened. I was unhappy that we were selling personal computers to China, Russia and the Marxist countries back then. Yup, we should not have even sold them PCs. We should never have allowed them to come to our universities.

    Well when you have a free moving society most anything is hard to contain.
    It's easy to copycat just about anything.
    The real issue is and has been the huge trade imbalance.

    Is a classic example of the old saying:

    Power corrupts, the more power the more corruption, and; total power = total corruption.
    When the viewpoint of the leaders changes from taking care of the citizens to maintaining ones grip on power (witness the DIMS here in the USA)... then the corruption follows.

    We taught them how to make chips and microprocessors. We allowed them to study our aerospace and similar high tech technology. We taught them microbiology and gave away our drug secrets so now they have near total control of prescription drugs. We even floated the money to create labs and modern manufacturing plants in China. They are not our friends and they are an immoral Communist Marxist society. And we aided them in our own demise.

    ONn thing we need to remember:

    The US Chamber of Commerce is heavily invested in China...
    And is polluting the waters of trying to bring business home!

    Remember that when you hear them support something...

    It was greed. Look at all the cheap stuff we got from them. At the expense of our losses in technology, our economy, our absolute military superiority, our health and eventually our freedom.
