Deternt my friend JJdraw is what won the cold war. So it is not a waste if seen in the context that those wepons brought technology to the masses, such as GPS that we all enjoy today. Yes many countries may be showing signs of progress and maturity but taking short-cuts at the expenses of USA tax payers, is the high crime committed here.

so, we restrict sensitive military components because we have the 'best' yet have been fighting non-stop in Afganistan for 10 years against an enemy still living in severe poverty. The US is messed up !!! Blowing money on worthless war toys that most likely will NEVER be used.

I believe such kind of smuggling is quite common and has been there for long time. China can launch rockets an satellites but I don't believe all semiconductors inside are made in China. US is still the leader in advance semiconductor products. Sometimes, the regulation is also kind of stupid. Take a look at what stated by the department of Commerce on the restricted list, you will discover something very interesting and surely this is not done by insider of the industry. For example, when specifying the speed limit of digital to analog converter, it just specify settling time faster than a certain limit will be restricted, but it didn't indicate how many percents of settling. We all know that 10% settling and 0.01% settling are total two very extreme speed! So, DAC manufacturers just didn't specify their products with such stupid specification!

This is high time countries should beef up their security. Else sensitive technology might reach the nations which doesnt show maturity in handling those technology.
