Batteries

http://freebeacon.com/powering-chinas-military/

The United States has allowed a Communist Chinese company to buy and American battery maker.  Batteries are one of the most important technologies in the world today.  The nation that leads the others in making batteries has a huge advantage over others.

Think about the portable computers, telephones, and other data devices, they all use batteries.  Radios used by police and the military, flashlights and even lasers all use batteries.  The size and weight of these devices is often primarily a function of their battery.  Energy weapons are all but useless today because we can't yet make a battery to power them.  Electric cars are expensive toys of the rich because of a lack of good batteries.

This is one of those acquisitions by the Communist Chinese that they hope to use to increase the power of their military and their space program.  The United States is fast losing our advantage in space under the Obama Administration, this is just another example of that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
