The era of manned combat aircraft may be drawing to a close. The USAF, the Communist Chinese, and the Europeans are all making drone aircraft. These systems allow combat to take place without putting friendly forces at risk. This type of long range warfare could make it easier to attack your neighbor if you know you won't suffer any casualties.
The Communist Chinese have managed to out produce most of the rest of the world in most manufacturing businesses. If the Europeans and Americans can't make televisions, radios, computers at prices that are as low at Chinese merchandise, and if the quality of our products is not any better, what will happen in the realm of drones?
The Communist Chinese may be able to make drones as good as ours and cheaper. That could give them a huge military advantage in the air. We need to work with the Europeans and other nations that share our values and insure that we have a military advantage in quality over the Chinese. Communist China is a potential danger to us all; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
