It is China’s fault that The Pentagon buys counterfeit sensitive electronic parts


China fake parts 'used in US military equipment'

US Navy Blue Angels fly in formation at the Andrews Air Show, Maryland 19 May 2012The failure of a single electronic part in any military plane could pose safety and national security risks and imposes higher costs on the Pentagon, the report said

Vast numbers of counterfeit Chinese electronic parts are being used in US military equipment, a key Senate committee has reported.
A year-long probe found 1,800 cases of fake parts in US military aircraft, the Senate Armed Services Committee found.
More than 70% of an estimated one million suspect parts were traced back to China,the report said.
It blamed weaknesses in the US supply chain, and China's failure to curb the counterfeit market.
The failure of a key part could pose safety and national security risks and lead to higher costs for the Pentagon, the committee said.
US servicemen rely on a variety of "small, incredibly sophisticated electronic components" found in night vision systems, radios and GPS devices and the failure of a single part could put a soldier at risk, the report said.
It highlighted suspect counterfeit parts in SH-60B helicopters used by the Navy, in C-130J and C-27J cargo planes and in the Navy's P-8A Poseidon plane.
After China, the UK and Canada were found to be the next-largest source countries for fake parts.
The committee criticised China for failing to shut down counterfeit manufacturers and said that committee staff wanting to travel to China for the investigation had not been granted visas.
"Counterfeit electronic parts are sold openly in public markets in China," the report said.
"Rather than acknowledging the problem and moving aggressively to shut down counterfeiters, the Chinese government has tried to avoid scrutiny," it added.
But the report said that use of Department of Defense programmes such as the Government-Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP), designed to log suspected fake parts, were "woefully lacking".
Between 2009 and 2010 the GIDEP only received 217 reports relating to suspected fake counterfeit components, the majority of which were filed by just six companies, it said. Only 13 reports came from government agencies.
The report also said that in some cases the US defence department had reimbursed contractors for the costs they incurred as a result of their failure to spot fake components in their own supply chain - giving companies no incentive to weed out counterfeits themselves.
But it praised the National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law on 31 December 2011 by President Barack Obama, which aims to stop counterfeit parts from entering the country and would cut down on sourcing components from unknown suppliers.
The report's focus on China comes as the US is beginning the task of "pivoting" its defence strategy towards the Asia-Pacific region.
The Pentagon is also preparing to absorb about $450bn (£285bn) of cuts over the next decade.
But it could face cutbacks of a further $500bn if mandatory across-the-board spending cuts come into effect at the end of 2012, after Congress failed to reach a deficit reduction plan last year.

  1. The Pentagon cannot control the source of parts used in its aircraft? We need new laws to stop that? The GIDEP program is “woefully lacking”. Well the FUKUP program seems to be in high gear, but have no fear, The Pentagon is “pivoting” its defense posture towards the Asia-Pacific region, so that we can return all those parts to the 1.5 billion Chinese I suppose with our “Village People” navy.

    3. Should we go to war with China over this?

      A military General from the Chinese National Defense University says that China should not hesitate to protect Iran, even if it means launching world war three, as more US warships are dispatched to the region amidst heightening tensions.
      According to NDTV, a Chinese news station based outside the country, in regard to recent speculation that Iran would be the target of a US-Israeli military assault, Major General Zhang Zhaozhong commented that, “China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third world war,” remarks described as “puzzling to some”.
      The news report also quotes Professor Xia Ming as paraphrasing Zhaozhong’s quote that, “not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs.”
      China has vehemently reaffirmed its alliance with Iran in recent weeks, most notably yesterday when it refused to criticize Iran for a raid on the British Embassy in Tehran launched by Iranian students earlier this week.

    Complications From His Father (and Mother)
    Ed Kaitz

    Doug Ross at Director Blue has clearly revealed the dubious maneuvers over at Obama's literary agency by noting that sometime between April 3rd and April 21st of 2007 someone at the agency was told to change presidential candidate Barack Obama's birthplace from Kenya to Hawaii.

    What seems to have gone unnoticed however is the equally compelling metamorphosis regarding the origins of Obama's own parents. For example, from June 1998 to June 2007 Obama's literary agency repeated the following claim:

    "[Obama] was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago."

    On June 14 Obama's parents suddenly transformed from what Madame Mao used to call "capitalist sprouts" (successful finance minister and anthropologist) to the more proletarian friendly "socialist grass":

    "[Obama] was born in Hawaii to a father who was raised in a small village in Kenya and a mother who grew up in small-town Kansas."

    Heaven forbid, in other words, that Democrat candidate Obama is discovered with overly favorable bourgeois origins.

    2. You miss my point or I fail to make it. Everyone killed in Viet Nam was a VC. In a hot war everyone expects "collateral damage”. That is Pentagon speak for women and children getting killed and murdered by our guys. If an enemy kills women and children, that is terrorism. Collateral damage is somewhat balanced by the human brain because there is danger to the soldiers in the combat. They are also at risk. A bomber pilot is at risk. A downed pilot’s parachute is just the beginning of his problems, especially from all those farmers who’s family and animals have been killed and property destroyed.

      No one knows who has been killed by these drone attacks. What is known is that they all cannot be terrorists. Revenge for the killings will be had. Since there is no soldier or pilot to torture and kill, so where do you expect they will go? To the mall perhaps?

  9. There are many people, including me, that are freaking out thinking about the US government using surveillance drones in the US. The US Senate has authorized the the IRS, without court orders, to seize passports of US citizens that they claim owe them $50,000 or more. What happens when they authorize the IRS to use drones to catch "tax cheats"?

    That is nothing compared to the anonymous attacks by the US on targets in Middle Eastern countries. It freaks them out as well.

    Do you trust the IRS to solely determine who is guilty of tax fraud without due process? of course not. Why would someone trust another US agency to make random bombing strikes in their country and do so with impunity?

  11. Why not egalize, regulate and tax drugs, earmarking some of the tax revenue for education to reduce drug use and rehabilitation programs to help abusers? Then work out agreements with the producer countries, which would enforce production quotas and, like India does, make sure the crop is not siphoned off by criminals.

    That would make sense, but many of the most powerful western countries - especially the USA - don't do sense.

    Anyway, let's not overlook the massive vested interests we are confronted with as countless billions are spent on pointless wars and fat cat arms manufacturers and others who leech off the defense industry rake in the profits.

    1. I know, let's legalize drugs, and regulate them at the same time - how that is done, to regulate a legal drug, is left to the imagination - though Rufus might know how - then we can tax the drugs for rehabilitation programs for those we have gotten hooked. Then we will simply negotiate with the cartels, and the producing countries, and they will reduce voluntarily their output, putting themselves out of business. In like manner we can make sure the crop in South America, Afghanistan and elsewhere, is not siphoned off by criminals, like India.

      Sounds like a 'go' to me.

    But not very well.

    As I said before, the argument is beyond my pay grade and there are many pros as well as cons.

    However, legalized prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing problem with drugs right. Many pre-teens, as well as teens and adults are abusing. I would imagine that problem would only get worse was usage of these drugs legalized.

    I've always thought legalizing marijuana would be the logical first step. It is readily available. Those who want it can get it now. I think it represents about a quarter of the cartels take. It would provide tax money. There would probably be an initial spike in usage but I expect it would eventually normalize with the big push on not smoking anything. And if the policy didn't work, you could eventually reverse it without fear of leaving a trail of addicts. The end result, you would have some kind of data to judge if further legalization of other drugs makes sense.

    But I could be wrong.

      I didn't pay to much attention to it as it was a first of its kind study. As I recall, it was by a well respected group and peer reviewed. The results of the study were anti-intuitive and indicated that there is no evidence that smoking pot contributes to pulmonary issues or cancer.

      Naturally, the first instinct of many in the medical field was to downplay the results and offer caution since it was only one study and its results needed to be duplicated and confirmed.

    Police are investigating the shooting death of University of Idaho football player Ken McRoyal, early Sunday in Los Angeles.
    (Credit: CBS Los Angeles)

    (CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Police detectives are searching for the killer of University of Idaho football player Ken McRoyal, who was shot to death in downtown Los Angeles early Sunday morning.

    The Los Angeles County coroner's office said McRoyal was shot during an argument. Details are sketchy, but police said there was a verbal altercation between McRoyal and at least four men, CBS Los Angeles reported. One of them opened fire, shooting McRoyal and another man who was shot in the arm.

    The participants had been attending a photo shoot to promote a new woman's clothing line. The incident happened around 130 a.m. Sunday at the Brewery Lofts, a living and working space for artists.

    McRoyal was a receiver at Idaho after two seasons at El Camino Junior College. He earned a football scholarship for the 2012 season, and his former coach John Featherstone told CBS Los Angeles that he could have played in the NFL.

    Idaho coach Robb Akey told the AP that McRoyal's loss is devastating. "We've lost a brother, a teammate, a family member. But, more importantly, a momma lost her son today."

    Police are seeking a motive for the shooting.

    Dominique Blackman, McRoyal's cousin, is trying to make sense of the killing.

    "They took somebody who meant a lot to our family and not only to our family but to a lot, to college football, to this community," Blackman told CBS Los Angeles. "He's a Katrina survivor. He's bigger than that - he's a father, my friend."

I am not changing my mind on that one; however, that observation is based in the broad and general sense. When you get down to a specific precipitating event, the left does seem to become volatile quicker and in greater numbers than the right.

      For instance, it is hard to think there would be rioting if Obama wins.

  22. In 2007, Mitt Romney, facing a surging Huckabee campaign in an Iowa caucus that was supposed to launch him to the nomination, delivered a speech about the role of faith in public life. As eloquent as the speech, entitled “Faith in America,” may have been, it did little to bolster his Iowa campaign.

    ...

    et Romney chose, rightly, not to ignore what had occurred, and ended up delivering one of the most effective speeches of his political career. In understanding why this is so, it is instructive to study the writings of the Orthodox Jewish Talmudist and philosopher Joseph Soloveitchik.

    ...

    Soloveitchik, moreover, insisted that primary subjects of interfaith engagement should include “man’s moral values” and “the threat of secularism,” matters that “revolve about religious spiritual aspects of our civilization.” He then added that in engaging these matters, people of different faiths can discover a profound commonality:

    As men of God, our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and terminology bear the imprint of a religious world outlook. We define ideas in religious categories and we express our feelings in a peculiar language which quite often is incomprehensible to the secularist.

  25. As this column was being written, Mitt Romney, who pioneered ObamaCare’s individual mandate when he was governor of Massachusetts, was close to locking down the Republican presidential nomination. Despite the wealth of targets created by Obama’s desolating presidency, the Republicans had managed to seize on nothing but dud issues: immigration (at a time when immigration is in sharp decline), pornography, and the strange claim that the president who ordered the assassination of Osama bin Laden, claims the authority to kill U.S. citizens, and agitates for war with Iran is insufficiently martial.

    A Quinnipiac poll taken in March showed Obama leading Romney by 50 percent to 42 percent.

    Why would a president who gave America vast unemployment, soaring inflation, a moribund economy, record deficits, and a manically ill-conceived energy policy be coasting toward re-election? For the same reason Dianne Feinstein (who, like Romney, generates little excitement in her base but is considered electable) is a lock.

  32. Margaret Thatcher adviser talks Obama eligibility
    Lord Monckton to appear at Arizona tea-party event

    Lord Christopher Monckton, an adviser to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has lectured on the fakery behind the worldwide global-warming fearmongering, appearing on CNN, Fox News, ABC and CBS. He’s delivering his warnings in the U.S., Russia and Australia, earning recognition as a leading expert on the case against man-made climate change.

    Now he’s scheduled to appear Monday in Sun City West, Ariz., at a meeting of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, which has been integral in advocating for a formal investigation into Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the presidential office.

    So what do global warming and Obama’s birth certificate have in common?

    Monckton himself explains.

    “Obama comes very much from the hard left,” he said in a recent interview with the Article 2 Superpac.

    In fact, he said, there are many who believe “Obama is as far to the left as you can go without being Fidel Castro.”

    “He may not carry a card … but it’s very difficult to tell the difference between him and a Marxist,” he said.

    Likewise, the driving forces now engineering claims that humanity is creating chaos in the world with uncontrolled carbon dioxide emissions and forcing the global climate to heat up dramatically are coming from the hard left, he said.

    Both campaigns are marked by the “destructiveness of the hard left,” he said.

    “The Climate of Freedom: With Lord Christopher Monckton and Tom Ballantyne” is scheduled Monday, May 28, at 6:30 p.m. at Sun City West.

    It is a fundraiser that will benefit the Cold Case Posse commissioned by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to investigate Obama’s eligibility. The preliminary conclusion already released said there is probable cause that there was forgery in the creation of Obama’s birth documentation released last year by the White House and probable cause that there was fraud in its presentation as a genuine document.

    In the recent interview with the Article 2 Superpac, Monckton said he has no idea where Obama was born, and he’s seen plenty of fraudulent Kenyan birth certificates. But he also said Obama should be taking the issue seriously.

    “What is very plain,” he said, is the purported Hawaiian birth certificate that is on the White House website … is manifestly in your face bogus.”

    He said the research done on the computerized image posted online revealed anomalies in the layers of the digital image.
