Why would I need to believe that? It´s the modern and the high quality technology they are after, nothing else. After that it´s up to the customer to have control of the system and protect themself.

Do you mind I roll over the floor laughing, especially about the last line

I thought all the cell towers were burned down due to causing the virus..

 

The 5G towers obviously can't spread the virus.

 

The virus was created to make 5G towers a necessity, because you can't track people adequately without 5G.

 

So the whole purpose of the virus was to create an environment where big brother takes the upper hand.

You must have a pretty low opinion of socialism to call China socialist. You mean like Sweden or Norway? It has s very poor social safety net system, a judiciary which is entirely under the thumb of the Party, massive Internet and press censorship. And under Xi state enterprises are growing again at the expense of private enterprise which are being asked to invest or lend (i.e. donate) to state enterprises. Lots of ecomonists believe China is headed for a middle income trap. And while it's GDP may soon be larger than the US, keep in mind that its population is about 4 times that of the USA

No social welfare system is the same. China’s social welfare system progression from its “iron rice bowl” in the past to “cradle to grave” and current coverage for education. health, labor etc. Details that you can obtain from public domain. SOE has been focus of much reform to reduce their inefficiency and profitability and the current reforms involved mixed ownership. SOE generated an increases in profitability last year. Again you can glean from public domain. Increasing GDP is not about population but the policies of the government and how they deploy capital. In China case, it’s their investments in R&D and infrastructure. There is no such thing as a free press and even social media. As for economic woes ahead, I can say that current China/US spat will hurt economies of both countries and the contagion will hurt the world.

The United States has raised security concerns about Huawei equipment, and warned that allies that use it in their networks risked being cut off from valuable intelligence sharing feeds.

All this turmoil is because Huawei refuses to allow the US to put backdoors in it's equipment that would allow the US to monitor all communications. The US doesn't like this and has created a story that is not backed up by fact.

 

I worked for a large telecom equipment provider in the 80's and 90's and they did the same with us. At least Huawei has more backbone than we did.

While the US has been spending on guns ,bombs and aircraft carrier the Chinese have been developing infrastructure.Now the Yanks realize they are behind in 5g. So because they can't beat them they try to screw them.

China spends a ton on military....a lot more than they acknowledge. They are building a lot more ships than US over the last couple of decades. US Defense is about 3.5% of GDP but much of that is spent maintaining bases in some 40 countries, many post WWII Cold War relics

Yes, so? They are also spending a lot more on infrastructure, which is what the poster you replied to said.
