It will be interesting to see how they are addressed as a foreign corporation in the handling of their defense contracts.

There are just those "law thingies" regarding foreign corporations [even if they have US corp offices] that regulate defense contracts in a different manner than everything else that the country does regarding foreign corporations.

I am sure Dick and the boys would not intervene to insure that there are no issues.

Do it and do it again
Waste me
Rape me, my friend

I'm not the only one
I'm not the only one
I'm not the only one
I'm not the only one

My favorite inside source
I'll kiss your open sores
I appreciate your concern

Rape me
Rape me, again

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

On the contrary, the majority on the States side are pretty out of touch. And many lack a world view. Having a chimp to run this country two terms in a roll should give you an insight to that.
