British intelligence has ruled that any risks from using equipment made by Huawei, a Chinese company accused of “dubious covert
practices”, are manageable. A ban on its use in 5G networks across the UK appears to be off the table. But while Huawei may be about to receive the
all-clear, experts believe big security challenges persist around 5G that have fallen under the radar amid a storm around the company driven in part
by political tensions.
Any technology that can relay information in such bulk and so quickly is a security threat. It is pretty obvious. Aside from that it would be very
possible for China to have a barb on this new hook with tasty bait on it for the West.
I'll go as far as to say "China, you have won the war!". China takes the lead with this technology as the most advanced technological political state
on the planet. How does that feel? Howe does it feel that such a brutally politically oppressive dictatorship is now leading the world and is the most
advanced? What a lovely political model for us all to emulate.
The West has been a lazy slug! The U.S has at least tried to keep up, but is fast losing pace now. I have said this before that we can't compete with
a state economically that goes to such low depths of labour rights inadequacies. They have very low pay. Their work is their whole life. Personally, I
would rather throw myself off a bridge in Shanghai than live a life like those people are having to, knowing how "the other half" live in the free
5G will be shared with us, but at what cost?: What cost politically? What cost for human rights and freedom? What cost to the U.S as the losing its
edge super-power? What cost to democracy?
This is what happens if we do not challenge states who stoop to dictatorship politics and near slave labour. They get an economic edge and therefore a
power edge over us and end up becoming the one who dictates not to just their own so called citizens, but to the world's economies and states at large
"with a little patience".
America is 2nd place now to China technologically. We have lost this battle. All we may do now is take advantage of the technology, but do our best to
secure it, to make it safe for us as Western states.
I am actually wondering if there are any secrets left to keep? Perhaps it should all now open up as we end up sharing technology anyway? I mean what
is there for me to learn about China that I do not already know, or about the U.S, or about Russia? Acurate guessing is very easy for any Sherlock
Holmes who is "elementary" enough in reasoning and can join up the dots and clues.
I doubt any state can go too far ahead because it is impossible to keep a technological secret now. All states rely on each other for economic
security. Without the West China would be knocked back into poverty. May be the same for the West though we managed without China in our markets until
very recently in fact. Perhaps we have that economic edge that if push came to shove we could still maintain our markets and economies without Chinese
So, Mr President, you have this one card to play that China would sink economically without the West, but the West would still float just about
without China and possibly be even wealthier, because I really get the impression China are more of a drain on quality and on my local economic
wellbeing than anything. It works for the Western Investor "big boys" who invest and can make a killing in China, huge in proportion compared to the
less sparsely populated Western business "clinetele", because there are so many more people in China for businesses to make a profit out of than here,
where labour costs too are so low because of the lack of rights, so profit may be maximized.
The day China began trading with the West on the markets and with the investors this was bound to happen. At the right twist in time China went from a
slow embrace of democracy to the worst kind of dictatorship ever seen on planet earth, controlling the largest population ever seen on earth.
I would never have allowed China in until it embraced democracy. I would have dangled a carrot in front of it and also a stick of sanctions. That is
what the West used to do, but the investors saw the potential of huge profits they could not dream of in the West and forsook every political altruism
and healthy decision making in favour of the gold mine fever of Chinese investment opportunities. That is why they hated Trump. It was because he has
been holding them up on China and stopping them making money. Do you think they really cared about any of the other stuff? That is just an arsenal of
weaponry to use to bring him to China friendly import policies. Already they are being much nicer to him. I have noticed they have taken the blow
torch off his face in terms of character assassination in the British media, just as he is easing up on China.
With 5G China have become the most technologically advanced state on the planet. Soon they will be the most powerful economy as soon as the Western
investors are given their freedom. Those guys will forsake everything democratically sacred in Western politics for the eastern carrot being dangled
before them. Yes, it is now China dangling the carrot. How long before they start using a stick?
