    Comments please.
    Considering that the manufacturers were almost certainly at least partly state-owned, of course the Chinese should pay. Good luck getting them to pay. Taiwan's government has been trying to get them to pay for the tainted milk products, and despite Beiping's promises, the money has as yet to be remitted to Taiwan.

    We need to make our own drywall, our own toys, our own cars, planes, bikes, and whatever. If it costs a few bucks more, so be it.

    Catch a clue: We have Americans out of work, so we keep importing from China things that we could make here, and provide jobs for our own citizens. What's wrong with this picture? Meanwhile, closets are cluttered with cheap Chinese clothes, kids rooms are full of cheap Chinese toys, we have things up the wazoo, but our own citizens are out of work.

    Very little drywall is even used in Chinese contruction. Cement is the primary construction material for buildings in this part of the world.

    The Chinese government had nothing to do with the manufacture of the drywall (unless it was an SOE) and is no more responsible then the US government is for bad products built by Ford
    Nearly all enterprises in China are either partly state-owned, are openly subsidized by the state, or receive financing from state-owned banks.
