Not surprising considering that Alibaba is full of scams and counterfeits.

Private companies are contracted by the government all the time. Lockheed, Boing, Microsoft, it's all the same. However, when the government gets those companies into its pocket and takes control of them, like GM, that's something completely different. It's called fascism. Thankfully, GM is doing everything they can to pay the government back and regain control from the government.

Google isn't in the government's pocket, but they have subcontracted for them.
