A ripple in US-China trade relations has been triggered by a security review of the sale of 16,000 Lenovo computers to the US State Department, on the grounds that the machines might be programmed to send sensitive information back to China. In fact, the State Department would be hard-pressed to find a PC that is not made in China, but the flap illustrates continuing American nervousness over its "strategic competitor" in an election year. - Janice Fioravante (Apr 4, '06)
America is no different to anywhere else, in terms of business venture.What doesn't go in by the front door, will find its way via the back door, especially if quality and cost savings make a good combination.
Re subject about bird flu. Was in the vet's yesterday, with one of the dog's. Didn't see one bird in there :o)
No America is already paranoid theres no getting involved they are already there. But are they paranoid for good reason or is it some sort of global conspiracy. As I type this I can feel someone watching me.........AGHHHH!
Dont panic ! Dont panic Mr. Mainwaring the bird flu is up in Scotland. That's far enough away from me !!! As for Mr. Bush, he hasn't got a clue where China is, "It's somewhere over there beyond Yewrope". America is as paranoid about China as France is about America, thank the Lord we live in a relatively stable, thinking country. What ?
Watch the SUN banner headlines tomorrow, "Thousands of lives in jeopardy " !!!!!
