Outsourcing Undermined Military Self-Sufficiency

Recently, the US Army decided to award military contracts to overseas manufacturers. It has been termed as a disturbing short-term policy that marked the country's growing dependence on foreign nations. The US Army announced that it would spend $3 billion to purchase up to 352 UH-145 helicopters from Eurocopter.

Eurocopter has been delivering its products and services to the US government and commercial operators for decades. Finally, it has broken into the US military market. The Pentagon sources argue that the outsourcing deal will help the US Army in getting good quality helicopters at a reduced price. However, it has definitely undermined the military self-sufficiency of the country. Now it's your turn to give your opinion on this issue. Do you think that outsourcing should be allowed in the US military?
