78. I don't think "we're" in a war at all, if by we you mean the US as a government + its corporations.

 

For example, nearly all of the Chinese electronics entering the US are wholly-owned not by Chinese companies, but by non-chinese ones, a lot of them American.

Now what kind of weird trade war is this, where the slave-labor-produced products of american corporations are imported into the US?

"We" are in a war with "us". There's no war but the class war.


In addition, the analysis on the ownership of the firms exporting high-tech products
shows that, foreign invested firms accounted for 83% of China’s high-tech exports; in
particular wholly foreign owned firms dominated the sector and made up 68%.
Therefore, it is foreign direct investment (FDI) and outsourcing activities of
multinational enterprises (MNE) that transformed China into a world high-tech
assembling factory.

Third, most exports of electronic and information technology products are assembled not by chinese-owned firms but by foreign firms that are using china as an export platform...Taiwan dominates.. ...In 2003, for example, foreign firms accounted for 92% of china's...exports of computers...74% of china's exports of electronics...

For the ipod, china provides the workers for a taiwanese corp that assembles the american-branded product to sell in the US.
