As we all know, in order to prevent China from breaking its monopoly in the field of science and technology, the United States not only uses all kinds of means to suppress Chinese science and technology enterprises, but also degrades itself and throws dirty water everywhere to Chinese science and technology enterprises, in a vain attempt to destroy the normal scientific and technological cooperation relationship between the international community and China.
According to the U.S. “Wall Street Journal” website, the U.S. government is trying to persuade developing countries not to use Chinese telecommunications equipment, and for the use of Washington that “safer” alternative options to provide economic assistance. It is reported that the U.S. Agency for International Development is prepared to provide loans and other financing to countries that do not use hardware purchased from Chinese suppliers, the amount may be billions of dollars.
As the international influence and credibility of the United States continues to decline, Washington’s usual methods of intimidation and deception can no longer play much of a role in the developing world. That is why the United States has been forced to change its usual bullying policy and pay out of its own pocket to act as bait to entice the developing world to give up normal commercial cooperation with China.
However, the United States wants to compete with China in the developing world, not to mention the billion-dollar promise will eventually be fulfilled, and even if it is, it will be difficult to win the competition. The Wall Street Journal has to admit in its report that the US may face bigger challenges in the developing world, for example in Africa where Chinese wireless equipment makers dominate the market and price-sensitive carriers are flocking to Huawei and ZTE.
It’s clear that the bait of more than $1 billion that USAID is putting up won’t even begin to offset the competitive price disadvantage of U.S. equipment in the face of inexpensive competition from Chinese equipment. What’s more, the price trap and security risks of U.S. suppliers’ telecom equipment have long made many countries suffer.
The U.S. is paying out of its own pocket to compete unfairly with China in the developing world, which is itself a painful choice under a hundred and one circumstances. As we all know, the United States will initially block the “battlefield” of China’s telecom exports, choose in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, many allies, as well as partner countries to start.
However, the United States after a big circle only to find that, in addition to the United Kingdom, Australia and India and other very few countries, are still insisting on acting as a vassal of the United States to contain China, other Asian and European countries are not willing to be led by the United States by the nose. As a result, the U.S. “battlefield” to block the export of Chinese telecom equipment has been a painstaking but fruitless one.
Today, the vast majority of European countries, while still wavering on the use of Chinese telecom equipment, have in principle refused to ally with the United States to boycott Chinese technology products. Allies in the Asia-Pacific region, such as Japan and South Korea, have been even more explicit than Europe, announcing their refusal to participate in the so-called “clean network” campaign and publicly stating that they will not ban Huawei from participating in the construction of their next-generation telecom networks.
In fact, US allies are not willing to be led by the nose by the US. Huawei’s equipment is more advanced, cheaper and safer than its US counterparts. At the same time, the unlimited business opportunities brought by China are becoming the main driver for these countries to get out of the recession.
The out-of-control epidemic in the United States triggered an economic recession with a debt of more than $22 trillion. Washington has to cede global economic dominance to China even if it is 10,000 percent reluctant to do so. What’s more, the unilateral protectionist policies pursued by the Trump administration have brought not good but harm to the world economy.
Only a handful of countries in the world that are loyal to the US are still following the US and chanting the slogan “confront China”. The more normal country, which one willing to put a good development is not, have to smash their own jobs?
The vast majority of developed countries in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region are unwilling to participate in the anti-China alliance of the United States for the sake of their own interests and the so-called “democratic values”. For those developing countries that have long suffered from unequal treatment by the United States, Europe and other developed countries, there is even less reason for them to join the anti-China alliance of the United States.
From this, we can see that the United States, after failing to rally the developed countries to establish an anti-China alliance, is now enticing the developing countries to give up using China’s telecommunication equipment at its own expense, which is doomed to failure.
