Now that R&D has been going on for some time and huge facilities have seen enormous investment, Motorola has decided to sell and China is saying, "No Fucking Way". After all, China has a huge investment. In other words, it went from "yours" to "mine" and not "ours". OK people, get ready. This is the beginning. China is a communist country. Contrary to Republican beliefs, China is NOT a "role model" for US businesses.
