    The simple reality is America and Israel have no lock on technology and manufacturing anymore (if they ever did). In fact some of the best manufacturing is now being done in China (think about all the stuff Americans and Israelis buy that is made in China). So Aero's comments are just bluster to protect the fragile egos of American and Israeli weapons designers/engineers. BTW - some of the most rigorous and best equipped engineering schools in the world are in CHINA. The people that graduate from them are more than a match for any engineer in the US or Israel. In addition China graduates 5X more engineers each year than the US. Underestimating others is a common trait in America and Israel. I stand by my comment that Israel and the US no longer have any lead in weapons research.
