I am guessing that this news will come as no surprise to to many of us here at ATS , but its still nice to see this mentioned in the MSM . I can't help but wonder if other news agencies will pick up on this and " make it an issue " . If I were a betting man I would say no , but we shall see .

I would also venture to guess that the U.S military also relies very heavily on the imports of various components to meet there defensive needs , but I am guessing that type of news could be covered by the term " national security " ?

I just hope that this coming forth of news prompts the government to start taking a serious look at just who they depend on for vital components and all needed security material in general .
