Pratt & Whitney illegally helped China develop attack helicopter

Mark Thompson on Time's Battleland blog has a good post today on the disturbing report that jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney broke U.S. weapons control laws and helped China develop a new attack helicopter. Especially loved the reminder about what Lenin may or may not have said about capitalists but which often rings true.

Good headline too: "Chinese Takeout."

Not only was the "Chinese Takeout" great, but so too was something a commenter over there said:

"Chinese Takeout is apropos, better than being taken to the laundry or panda-ing to the Chinese."
