I don't mean to laugh
but, well, yes, I do, really...
China fake parts 'used in US military equipment'
And given that it is the U.S. military, they probably paid premium prices for the parts, as well. I guess I do find it ironic that the foe of Chinese Communism gets suckered in like this. And ironic, too, that they are having counterfeit parts supplied by one of the countries that they are always playing brinkmanship with,and who they fear they may one day be at war with.
Of course, they're laying the blame on China and the supply chain rather than taking any of the blame themselves. Naturally.
