Did you even read the article?
A truly odd reaction to Germany deciding to go with a converted business jet instead of a UAV for a signal intelligence mission because the UAV wasn’t meeting their requirements as they had expected it to do so (and likely the UAV considerably more expensive than initially projected).
Zero to do with China or whatever unrelated nonsense you are “contributing”.

It's not an odd reaction, it's a reaction to a trend with Germany (trending down).

Your comments is both irrelevant to this topic and factually wrong.

It's OK...but incomplete. You have to understand that the basic RQ-4 is neither a Northrop nor a Grumman product. It's a Teledyne Ryan aircraft - and NGC has never quite understood it. Not to mention leaving out most of the Global Hawk Maritime Demonstration (later BAMS-D) program...which solved a bushel of operational and tactical issues, got sent to CENTCOM on a 6-month deployment...and came back thirteen years and five months later.
