    Re: United Technologies Corporation helps China build first attack copter

    United Technologies is a GLOBAL company, not an AMERICAN company. If they were an American company they would be so over-taxed that they would have gone out of business before selling weapons technology to the country that makes all our stuff.

    It's that damn free market thingy.

    United Technologies Corporation (UTC) (NYSE: UTX) is an American multinational conglomerate headquartered in the United Technologies Building in Hartford, Connecticut.

    they are based in america, it doesn't matter if they are a global company it matters where they are headquartered. there should be bigger punishments for supplying an enemy with military technology, it doesn't matter what quality/how old the technology is. it's the precedent.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I don't recognize my own quote. Too many pain meds. Maybe I was being sarcastic.

    I guess it's just that greed issue.

    What, helicopters? They have those already. You don't even know what "this technology" is.
    they could not become military copters without the software. here's some quotes from the original wall street journal article

    "On Thursday, the UTC unit pleaded guilty to illegally supplying China with military technology and agreed to pay more than $75 million in penalties, in a major violation of U.S. arms control laws.

    "The attack helicopter was powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, the same engines used on a civilian version. But the company admitted it had outfitted them with engine-control software modified for military use."

    ""Due in part to the efforts of these companies, China was able to develop its first modern military attack helicopter with restricted U.S. defense technology," Assistant Attorney General Lisa Monaco said in a statement. The Z-10 helicopter is in production, and initial batches were delivered to the People's Liberation Army of China in 2009 and 2010, the Justice Department said."

    ""I would say the '2 seat version' is code for an attack helicopter," a United Technologies legal official wrote in an email. "This has the possibility to be very controversial…Any concerns?"".
