    Loosen some ITAR regs to permit hiring engineers from Japan and Australia. Rocket engine exports could possibly go to those countries. Beyond Australia and Japan, I cannot think of any other countries to whom it would be appropriate to export new technology rocket engines; maybe Singapore. Due to proposed EU weapons sales to China, it is past time for America to limit or stop military technology transfers to Europe; including the UK. However, this will not happen. For example, the UK is scheduled to purchase the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the world's most advance multi-role jet, from Lockheed in 2008. Other participants in the F-35 program are: Australia, Japan, Singapore, Canada, Denmark, Italy, Norway, the Netherlands and Turkey. It is interesting to note that all of these countries, except Canada and Turkey, were\are participants in the Iraq Coalition.
