(appalled that the U.S. has to turn to potential strategic adversaries to build and install critical control infrastructure)

The US is dependant on foreigners for large parts of our need for minerals, energy and manufactured goods. The largest single driver of this dependancy is because the foreign goods are cheaper...the national version of the corporate "make or buy" decision.

Two ways to reverse this trend:

-repeal the enviro and workplace regs and force USians to work for $2/hr

-enact domestic content laws to require "strategic" materials and products be 100% made in USA.

Either course would exact a high price on the US, and most USians are completely amoral when it comes to money in their pocket.
