Yeah right. As soon as China makes it difficult to sell iphones there the key will be given to the chinese in a heartbeat if it wasn't done already.

You're absolutely wrong.
If the FBI had their way then the Chinese would be knocking on Apples door demanding the same treatment. And there isn't a special key that can open up iPhones, that's exactly the status quo that Apple fought  to keep.

Apple also only cares about its own business.

Apple is a business and of course they care about the bottom line.
And that results in them caring about their customers so they can earn their business.

Nothing wrong with that, I wish that all companies fought for their customers rights like Apple has been doing.

If Apple gave in to the government they would then be asked to help in every drug case, every suspected drug case, every tax case and so on.

FTFY  ;)

But isn't that their job? They are fulfilling it properly, aren't they?!

They would abuse it. Their warrants would be rubber stamped by a judge like they are today.

Again, what would be considered abuse that is out of the capacity of their job. If it's for investigative purposes, whether the alleged swindler stole 1 cent or one billion dollars, they still are to face justice, and it should be investigated.

It would be abuse if the guy didn't swindle a penny but he wrote an article critical of the Obama administration.
