Rest assured, this company will fail or succeed on its own and will LIKELY BE REPLACED BY SOMETHING BETTER if the company starts acting like dicks...

I agree... Another factor to consider is the fact the codebase is fairly small... I have first hand dived into because of lacking docs...
Compared to a product like LibreOffice/OpenOffice, apache, Firefox, Linux, docker is very small project. So launching a competing product isn't that hard...

Fact: In America there are millions of citizens who go hungry every nights

Patronizing for the sake of patronizing will only earn you distrust and disgust

Sorry, I didn't mean to say that the US is perfect in anyways... Just that I don't think the US going to do anything for its poor citizens.
The US is messed up, and surely ought spend it money smarter than doing an arms race, but US public, politicians and press, probably aren't smart enough to do that... at least I'm not holding my breath :)

It really comes down to there being huge numbers of IT workers but very few good ones.

Spot on, I rarely meet people who deliver above and beyond...

But I don't know if one skilled motivated superstar developer is worth 5 slow moving developers...
But I have experienced teams of two skilled devs, making things move faster than a team of 10 average developers :)
(Of course partially because of communication overhead, and lack of one single person having real responsibility).

The solution is aggressive immigration control, especially deportation of most immigrants at this point. Legal or illegal, doesn't matter.

So you want to deport legal immigrants :)
Ha ha... That's just stupid, by the very definition of legal..

government in Tennessee cracked down on immigration violations, suddenly businesses that relied on low and unskilled workers

Few IT jobs are occupied by low and unskilled workers... Why don't you take unenlightened anti-immigration rant somewhere else...

the real question is how many H1Bs are actually doing exceptional work versus simply being cheaper?

I'm an H1-B, relocated from Denmark, working in SF, and I can assure you that I'm not cheaper :)

.....we could free up several hundred thousand jobs that should be going to Americans.

If my H1-B was revoked I would move to an EU office for the same company, doing the same job, at approximately same salary.
My point is this, Silicon Valley can't be the tech hub, if people can't immigrate, in fact the hassle of getting a visas today is enough I wouldn't care if the company didn't hire paper pushers to do the work.

With respect to job availability, I see emails from recruiters trying to get me to go to a job interview every week...
It's not my impression that there is an abundance of skilled IT workers.

Otherwise it's the standard way that the US maintains militray superiority over the rest of us.

I'm not a US citizen, but if "the rest of us" is China and Russia, I'm okay with US military superiority.. Seriously, it's not like European governments are particularly interested in jumping an arms race and spending money on military research.

Oh, and both Russia, China and India certainly ought to find better things to spend their money on... like food, education, etc...

By the way, it should be noted that it's not just US intelligence that consistently contradicts what you're saying. After Iraq we can't really trust the US anymore. But British, German and French officials (along with just about every European country) is consistently saying the same thing.

Note, that neither Germany or France went into Iraq... They have a lot more credibility than US officials. Seriously, Russias inconsistent presentation of the situation isn't collaborated by any independent sources...

There are some Russian soldiers who are on leave and using their personal time to help the separatist movement in Ukraine

And facilitating this (or even just allowing it) can be considered an act of war.

The BRICS countries have all the good cards and jeopardizing trade with them would mean condemning our populaces to abject poverty.

We're mutually dependent on trade... If we had to shut off China it would suck, but for both them and us. Absolutely, and it would mean changing current life style... A lot of things would become more expensive, but in the long run we would be fine... China on the other hand is more likely to fall into a long term recession...

Either way, that's not happening... Putin might in fact have to stop before the US and EU enforces complete embargos.
A general embargo on a country like Russia would have huge implications on both sides, nobody wants that.

No Ukrainian commander has the power to retaliate to a nuclear strike in kind

Which is probably a good thing... We the west (NATO) might no follow up with nuclear retaliation either. But Russia would be frozen completely out of the international community. I even suspect we would make China choose between trading with us or Russia. There is no risk of nuclear war... And if Putin made any such threat, sanctions would be prompt.

All he did here was mention that he was powerful, using his nuclear capacity to illustrate that...
I guess that leaves us with the option of a proxy war, like afghanistan during the cold war. Not sure what is worse...
