You're quite welcome. "...that we are actually using Chinese-made knock-offs." All too often that is the case. You draw a good picture. I can see this as well.

If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP.

Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today.

Will the Japan-China clash over islets in the South China Sea, now involving warplanes and warships...
