“Made in China” counterfeit war plane parts put our troops in danger- why?

 

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

 Last November, researchers for the Senate Armed Forces Services Committee, reported our military had purchased and installed counterfeit electronic components into Warplanes and other weapons systems. During their research the committee claimed that it found more than a million fake parts in a random sample with approximately 70% of the electronic parts originating from China.

 The components would find their way into the Defense Supply Chain through approved commercial distributors who purchase the parts directly from China. The Chinese would purposely pack counterfeit parts with in genuine military grade components and sell the batch to the Defense Logistics Agency at bargain prices with little or no quality assurance checks.

 Military grade parts are manufactured to withstand extreme conditions. The counterfeit components are often factory rejects or commercial grade parts which have been relabeled. The most effective method to ensure the quality of parts being purchased is aggressive testing of the parts and the decertification of distributers who are selling fake parts to the military. But apparently those charged with insuring the quality of these parts have not done their job.

 According to the Chinese nationalistic commentator Song Xiaojun, the United States is at fault (of course!) for getting itself into this situation. He stated “The US has been dismantling its factories since the 1960s,” he said. “And since the Clinton government, the US has turned a blind eye towards military requisitioning. As it keeps cutting its procurement budget, weapons dealers will keep providing cheaper quality products,”  The never ending Defense cuts and the high cost manufacturing within the United States and Japan have created a situation where defense suppliers had to look elsewhere for components to keep weapon systems operating.

 Phony parts do impact the readiness of the Armed Forces to protect our country. This downward spiral  started with the Clinton Administration when they ordered the Military to go bargain hunting for replacement parts.

In the face of draconian cuts enacted by Barack Obama and his American hating Chicago thugs, the Pentagon will be under still greater pressure to find parts to keep our old and getting older weapon systems in optimum shape. This is a very serious situation.

 1913: Five thousand women march to the Capitol in Washington asking Democrat President Woodrow Wilson to grant women the right to vote. Wilson and the Democrats that controlled Congress laughed at them. It was not until Republicans regained control of Congress that women finally became fully vested citizens.

  1. WHY?? The end game is to eliminate as many of our soldiers as possible and keep them out of the US as long as possible. HE does not want them here when he declares himself dictator. Our service men are sworn to protect the United States and our citizens. He has his own armies here in America to control the people. He has prepared well, we on the other hand have "do little" in Washington that are watching all of this happen to our country. He should have been thrown out of office when he first refused to produce his birth certificate. How do you impeach someone that is not an American citizen??Read on the internet last nite that the ATF is in Alaska collecting names of the gun owners. And so it begins………..

  2. "According to the Chinese nationalistic commentator Song Xiaojun, the United States is at fault (of course!) for getting itself into this situation.

    I hate to admit this but I believe Xiaojun is correct.

  3. Having any military parts made by a potential and continually threatening enemy is lunacy and treason. Inviting and covertly maintaining enemy troops within the United States is high treason.

  4. It is very important to have ALL electronic components tested by an independent third-party test lab before the sale. This problem continues to spin out of control and endanger the lives of our military personnel that are set forth to protect and serve our country. AAA Components Test Lab is an independent laboratory providing third-party inspection and testing, AAA Components Test Lab ensures that your interests are protected and the quality of your product is assured.
