File this one under, yeah right….
the USA pissed off the Chinese as they killed Osama and remember 59,9% of Chinese polled supported the guy, but then again 90% of them were thrilled when the columbia blew up, but anyway. The chinese say it is absurd they want our high tech copter that crashed. yeah, of course they dont want it, why would china of all countries want to get our product, copy it and then call it their own. sounds absurd doesnt it?

Key US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher also demanded immediate return of the chopper debris for fear of American military secrets being compromised.

In 1998, Pakistan’s military and intelligence services facilitated the transfer of an unexploded American Tomahawk missile recovered by Taliban to China.

The Chinese were then able to reverse-engineer the missile and dissect its components, allowing them to learn its vulnerabilities and defeat its capabilities.

Also much of the wreckage of a F-117 Nighthawk bomber shot by Serbian rebels is believed to have made its way to China.

China’s first stealth aircraft, which was unveiled recently, shared technical know-how gleaned from the destroyed Nighthawk.

During the May 2 raid in Abbottabad, a specially-configured stealth US Special Forces helicopter crashed and even though US soldiers attempted to destroy it, the tail was left intact and was recovered by the Pakistanis.
The US has already asked the Pakistanis for the helicopter wreckage and the ABC quoted a Pakistani official as saying that Chinese were also “very interested” in seeing the remains.

Another official said, “We might let them (the Chinese) take a look.”
The chopper, which aviation experts believe to be a highly-classified modified version of a Blackhawk helicopter, clipped a wall during the operation to kill the Al Qaeda leader.
