The Art of War, Circa 2007

We’ll just never learn:

Textron Inc.’s Cessna Aircraft Co. will become the first U.S. manufacturer to turn over complete production of an airplane to a Chinese partner, a move intended to cut production costs and foster a nascent private-aviation market in China.

Textron figured that since the food and toy imports from China are such high quality, why not let ’em make our airplanes, too?

Given the recent track record of Chinese products, if we now just let them make our razor blades, cars, beer, step ladders and electrical appliances, they’ll be able to take over the U.S. without firing a shot — and they’ll fly in on anything but a Cessna, of course.
