pheonix358, "Tech in the U.S. it to make money and in China to defend the country"?
Bro, give your head a shake. The whole development of China has been about "making money". Period.
As far as military tech, sure China doesn't have oversite committees, can pour a fortune into specific programs without us being aware of that program
or the degree of success of it. It's been my biggest worry about China for a number of years now.
Physical evidence suggests they are NOT at the same level as the U.S. and the U.S. military-industrial complex has given us the best military in the
world. (that's how they make their money, LOL)
Your NASA eg is valid but I'm sure if we had access to everyone else's "gov't" spending, we'd find similar, if not worse egs there as well. We have a
little bit more open access to our gov't than anyone else...anywhere.
Rail guns? Sure...but what are we sitting on that not even we know about?? Can't leave that one out.
China also is among the best in non-nuclear sub technology-along with the Euros. Better than our tech as we don't use em...probably should.LOL.
If there's one area that we still lead is R+D for military purposes...I think...at least before Obama...
