    The technology I work on has such restrictions. Similar things happened in India, they refused to sign a end user agreement to not make weapons technology with it. There was also a machine I know about, always wondered about contacting BIS about it.

    speaking of india and technology transfers

    Mumbai, Nov. 1: Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) will acquire Tyco Global Network, a US major with a newly laid 60,000-kilometre cable network, for Rs 600 crore ($130 million).

    The deal is a steal for the international telephony major since it gets control of submarine cables built only three to four years ago at a cost of more than $2.5 billion.

    The Telegraph - Calcutta : Business

    so in 2004 they bought a $2.4 billion fiber optic network for $150 million, two years after their shares had been debased due to the kozlowski scandal

    so who really paid for indias internet?

    And what is UTC's punishment for supplying China with military technology?

    answer: a slap on the wrist

    I think such a thing should constitute treason, the company disbanded and it's owners thrown in to prison or executed. Most likely this is just stuff they were caught doing,so this could be just the tip of the iceberg.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    In most of Earth's modern wars the US has armed both sides. It is all about profits.

    I don't believe the quote by Anna Mahjar-Barducci.

    This is nothing new. Look up the story of Magnequench if you want to see an even bigger conflict of interest.

    I would prefer that China not gain this technology.

    Are people aware that what was supplied was just software? China built the helicopters themselves, they were going to fly anyway.

    What, helicopters? They have those already. You don't even know what "this technology" is.

    I completely agree. Here's some proof on that response:

    Shaking Hands with Saddam Hussein: The U.S. Tilts toward Iraq, 1980-1984

    In response to the thread, why are we worried if China builds a copter? Anything I've owned that was made in China has broken within the first year of ownership.
