B-2 Plans for Sale?

Record deficits and a crashing economy appear to be taking a toll on the young Barack Obama Administration. The Administration has been talking about hiking income taxes and perhaps instituting a VAT tax.

China is also concerned with the mounting deficits in the United States budget. China is the single biggest holder of US Treasury Bonds and is one of Washington's biggest trading partners. The People's Republic has had a burgeoning economy, but is increasingly wary of the falling US dollar.

While the exact amount of Chinese ownership of US treasuries is unknown, it is estimated to add up to over a trillion dollars. If China were to call in US guarantees on these bonds, economists fear it could lead to an economic collapse larger than the Great Depression.

China has recently expanded its defense budget, ostensibly to keep up with its economic growth. China is reportedly working on its own version of a stealth bomber (the US has the only functioning model) but is lagged by technological defects.

On April 1st, President Obama spoke to Chinese Premier Hu Jintao during the G20 Summit. During this meeting, Mr. Hu expressed interest in writing off some of the US debt in exchange for military technology. The President has since referred the matter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The Defense Department is reportedly furious with the President's proposal to sell blueprints of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber to the People's Republic. Gates has flatly rejected the President's plan, but has since been asked to step down if he will not facilitate the process.

According to the deal, the United States would sell the plans for the B-2, along with radar-absorbing paints and metals in exchange for $50 billion in debt relief. The B-2 cost the US government $23 billion to develop the bomber in the 1980s.

According to the Administration, this proposal will help the United States resolve its debt issues. They point out their belief that the B-2 bomber is "strategically obsolete", according to a source in the White House Press Office. In addition, the source claims that the Chinese would be unable to create their own functioning stealth bomber fleet for "at least eight years."

American allies Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea are very wary of the proposal. Koo Syi, a geopolitical analyst from South Korea, points out that this technology could be passed to China's allies. This was the case when Chinese nuclear technology was transferred to Pakistan and North Korea. According to Koo, Obama has rendered US allies' opinions as "irrelevant."

While this proposal is controversial, it is not being presented to Congress, where it could meet with stern opposition. Instead, the State Department has been informed to assisted the Defense Department with the transfer of materials.

Obama might be a novice at foreign policy, but he is not a dumass. He knows that selling B-2 tech will have consequences well beyond the financial relams. It will be selling off america's military superiority. The nation will never stand for it, since it will be considered like selling national pride.

If USA wants $50bn, they should just withdraw from Iraq and Afg, and stop the $10bn aid to Pak. That itself will save $50bn.

With respect to all members here , I would like to state that I have doubt about the report's reliability and don't think the US Administration under Barak Obama is not 'noviced' to even think of the idea.

thats just blogspot news fake, if such a thing was to happen japan would grapple it for 100 billion. They were more than willing to buy f-22 planes, though the only country it was offered israel turned it down due to high cost of ownership. The japs would do anything to prevent the chinese dragon from awakening and breath fire.

You know those hackneyed clichés like: when pigs fly; when hell freezes over; if wishes were horses, beggars would ride....

Pick one.

WOW...this is one of the more ridiculous articles that I have come across...America, takes its national defense very seriously. If Obama did sell these plans then he would be run out of office the very same day...

Something like this can happen in the future when (Japan+SK+Other US allies) are financially+diplomatically breakevened by China and US instead of asking China to allign its interests with US sees more benefit in alligning its own interest with Chinas and forces (Japan+SK+Other US allies) to do the same.

But not immediate threat.

Though must bear in mind that the correction in trend always comes fast and furious for the ones not ready.
