I don't know if this thread really belongs in this category, as this category seems primarily related to computer technology, concerning which I'm a total novice, but, as this thread concerns aerospace technology and aeronautical engineering, I've decided to post is here, with regard to the fact that the moderators may find it wise to relocate it.

My point is that Antony C. Sutton spoke much of the Western habit of supplying the Soviet Union with technology sufficient to maintain them as a credible threat to justify massive weapons expenditures and curtailment of civil liberties to the US populace from World War I through to the end of the Cold War.  This is certainly the case, but much less has been made of the transfer of British technology to the US during the Second World War and the decade or so following, to a point that seems, to me, to reflect a decision on the part of the British establishment to sacrifice Britain's economic and military potential in favo(u)r of US global power exertion (obviously due to the far greater economic potential which the US still exerted as the afterglow of her pre-Federal Reserve system of net indebtedness, as well as to her central position on the globe bridging Western Europe and Soviet East Asia).  Such major British technological innovations as the cavity magnetron, which allowed the miniaturization of radar as well as a massive increase in the definition of radar images, the P-51 Mustang (essentially an uprated Spitfire which didn't reach its full potential until fitted with the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine), the centrifugal-flow turbofan engine which powered early US jet fighters, and many innovations subsequently applied to the F-84 and F-86 fighters (particularly the thin swept wing borrowed by the British from the Me P.1101 (See:

how much this looks like a late-model F-84 or F-86)), as well as the entirely British-innovated technology of fully-articulated tailplanes (i.e., not just the rear portion, but the entire horizontal tailplane pivots, which is an essential design element at transonic speeds) eventually applied to the F-86.

It seems as though Britain's ruling class conspired to sacrifice Britain's future in the face of the US' superior power potential, just as the US' ruling class eventually decided to sacrifice America's future to the US-controlled Russia-neighboring slave state of China. (The USSR was controlled by the US War Department from 1917 until Stalin showed up, and exerted a little independence, only to be brought partially under Western control in the face of the Nazi onslaught of 1941, only to revert to partial independence in the postwar years (recall Stalin's rejection of the extension of the Marshall Plan to Eastern Europe, which even Professor Carroll Quigley ascribes to Stalin's clinically obvious mental illness, but was, in fact, based upon the information provided by Stalin's agents within the British establishment to the effect that this proffered extension constituted an attempt by the Western banks to regain direct control over Eastern Europe).
