Believe me, China getting in a war anywhere would be foolish now that they manufacturer everything for everybody. That would be like Apple getting in a war here in the US with California. I can say they make fine products when they do clones though. I have a real nice all 18k gold Rolex president that I am afraid to wear but love. I bought a Chi Com clone for $250.00 that had a box papers and everything so i could wear it instead of my real one in case anyone pointed a gun at me and said give me your Rolex. I was wearing it into a Jewelry store once and they sold Rolex, the guy behind the counter, a Certified Rolex pro said It sure is nice to see An authentic Rolex President once in a while! lol! I told him it was fake and he had to look at it for ten minutes and open the case and then said he wanted one!

We are trying to catch up with the rest of the world. Guadalajara is now the silicon valley of North America. Blackberrys and HP hand held devices are made here. Most US and Canadian manufacturing are here now. It's like the china of North America. Kinda sucks for my folks and friends back in the US with the bad economy, but things a booming here. Lots of jobs for people that are bilingual too. English/Spanish.

There are some out there, but whether or not they are as effective is the big question.
