4 21, United States,” Wall Street Journal “published an article entitled sensational article: “‘Made in China’ has been occupied by the U.S. military camp.” The article quoted a senior researcher at Institute of American policy the words, considering the Air Force can not find local suppliers, only Chinese goods, was forced to give up Air Force Base, Alaska Ai Wilson’s domestic military housing construction project procurement plan. This is because the original intention of this program is to stimulate the U.S. domestic demand. Accordingly, the United States Association of Manufacturers, exclaimed: “Made in China” has been developed to the point where the erosion of the U.S. military.
U.S. media’s “common mistake”
this is nothing new, “crying wolf” propaganda from the mainstream American media, in fact, nothing surprise. For the protection of free trade and trade disputes at the onset of the national economy existed, arguing for hundreds of years, would like to introduce the point of view really is not easy. In fact, after looking through the history of the world economy, unable to find either a pure free-trade fans, could not find a 100% closed-door economy. Almost every country has its own interests in accordance with the tendency to understand the principles of free trade. Choice of open and forcing the other open, not hidden rules, but that rule. Therefore, we are not surprised the U.S. military restrictions, “China” purchase, but the U.S. Association of Manufacturers, the military and research institutions pretentiously pretend “very naive very urgent” look.
“China” and the U.S. military in recent years is closer and closer? The answer is yes. In addition to the Eielson Air Force Base, military housing construction project in striking metal machinery, the U.S. Army needed uniforms, boots, goggles, umbrellas and other basic materials, all have extensive experience of sourcing from China . However, this supply-demand relationship is purely business only. U.S. Army tender, national suppliers to bid, the operation of the international market is so. It is the Chinese people won the bid dictates of market forces, the Americans did not lose anything either, not to mention the “China” hearts. Chinese goods are cheap, but short-listed reasons, after-sales service only.
then, “Made in China” and the relationship between the U.S. military, is really opposition to the point of harming U.S. national security? The answer is no. Those materials will result in the U.S. accusing China of China rely on so-called “experts” were not professional performers. Only a monopoly can not find replacement supplies will result in the buyer’s rigid reliance; and only herself from the outside of the age of globalization, all countries can produce their own in order to absolutely no dependency. U.S. military procurement of Chinese goods is neither technological barriers, there is no monopoly of potential, as long as Americans want their own production, can be produced immediately. Each produce only good at producing their own stuff, which is the basis of the existence of globalization, the international industrial chain division of refined natural product. Get a grasp on the market a few of the hardware that the “China threat”, the U.S. media is guilty of common-sense errors.
the name of patriotism by engaging in secret operations
knowingly absurd since, lobby groups and U.S. military authorities to take “Made in China,” what meaning does that matter ? There are two reasons. First, the military has always been conservative in complex emotional and domestic products a strong fortress. Defense spending transparency is poor, but also closely related to the operation and the political forces. They do not like the public bids, preference for a variety of cheap patriotism under the heading of monopoly procurement. This is to foster the economic circles, pro-military forces, but also conducive to obtaining more military spending combined. Therefore, the U.S. military’s most powerful hostile forces which are willing to advocate, while organizations such as Association of Manufacturers also happy to accompany crying. Obsession with the name of patriotism by engaging in secret operations, we have both fame and fortune, why not? Thus, since 1941, “Bailey amendment”, the U.S. military and military business to cook the one hurdle to ensure their own vested interests.
The second reason is that the “China threat” that much Shoubu Zhu mouth. Each year from Congress to so many military, must have a pretext for it. Chinese goods are now all over the world, something that carries both the image and vivid. Although do not have to buy Chinese goods more expensive in other domestic products, but the math accounts for a large military spending, the U.S. military is no loss. Unfortunately, the front line of American soldiers, the military not to buy Chinese goods in bulk purchases, soldiers had to buy their own expense, the China Light and durable hiking boots. Such lenses are often seen in Afghanistan, Iraq front-line correspondents on the photo shoot back, witnessed the laws of the market can be considered the irresistible nature of it.
