Both the Chinese and they can produce drones much more cheaply and effectively than we. Yet another by-product of free trade and abysmal counter-intelligence:

This isn't going to end well for anyone.
Especially the US.
And who is going to benefit?

As I’ve been banging repeatedly on since 2004, warfare since 1940 has primarily concerned industrial capacity. Of course, the Clown World establishment doesn’t listen to me, so they’re genuinely confused and afraid now that it’s clear that both China and North Korea are formally allied with Russia, giving the sovereign nations a 100x advantage over the post-industrial financialized economies of Clown World.

Perhaps most worryingly, Govini found that more than 40 per cent of the semiconductors that sustain Department of Defense (DoD) weapons systems are now sourced from China.

I am normally a great fan of VP, and remain so, but in this case I'd raise a few points.

Noting that that modern warfare is all about production is nothing new and in fact predates 1940 by quite some time. The British Navy was built with the oaks of England being felled to provide its timbers while the factories of such names as Husqvarna and Steyr have their roots in much earlier wars.

It need also be noted that John Deere has not transferred production of its tractors to Mexico, only its skid steer loaders which are a fairly minor element in its product range.

Then there is the question of the impact of drones on warfare, does mass production of large, complex fighting machines matter as much as it once did?

VD makes the point that the current leaders of ClownWorld don't seem to understand that industrial capability is a thing. Also, drones are no good if the country you are going to war with makes all the chips to run your drones. Another grave miscalculation

China appears to be warning NATO not to attack Belarus. Global Times reports Chinese troops have arrived in Belarus, on the border of Ukraine:

According to a press release from the Belarusian Defense Ministry on Saturday, military personnel from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have arrived in Belarus to participate in the joint anti-terrorism exercise scheduled from July 8 to 19.

The joint exercise will allow for the exchange of experience, the coordination of Belarusian and Chinese units, and the establishment of a foundation for further development of Belarusian-Chinese relations in the field of joint military training, said the Belarusian press release.

I think the bigger issue.
The industrial and scientific research base has been pretty much degraded in the states.
The smo is a hybrid conflict drones and ww1/ww2 artillery duels.
Add in ECW and the denial of airspace to aviation .
Precision Cruise missiles hypersonic missiles ballistics.
The West and the US haven't kept pace and its coming as a big shock to them funnily enough.
Now that they are engaged with a peer adversary and the economic sanctions haven't been the hindrance expected, except to the instigators economy's.
Let's not even get started on the Houthis and the alleged hit on a US carrier.
That's the problem with fighting the last war when technology has moved on considerably.
