    This is not new - anyone who has spent time in the region is aware that China has methodically been executing this strategy for years. While the trade wars may accelerate the plan to separate its tech ecosystem from the rest of the world, China has always had a strong determination to compete. Their willingness to collaborate was simply a means to that end.

  • Wake up Silicon valley this trade war is about money. Big money and serious problems but the real cold war involved real weapons real death real bombs real fear.

    Wake up Silicon valley this trade war is about money. Big money and serious problems but the real cold war involved real weapons real death real bombs real fear.

    In the real world there are politicians who control real weapons forgeting yhat Russia and China have massive military power. We don't need to go back to defcon scare stories.

    Most people barely understand anything about China, it's people, its culture or any of its current political goals. China is going to take a much longer-term view than the United States, or even possibly Europe. For the past five thousand years, it is only been the last couple of hundred years that China has not been the preeminent imperialistic power. China is looking to regress to that mean, and come back to it's normalcy. Over the past three decades China has learned enormously every facet of technology the United States and Europe have dreamed up, and now we have precipitated a catalytic event that will drive China to coalesce it's own ecosystems in technology. Overtime as the technology and ecosystem grows and strengthens, economics will drive innovation and development towards China and away from the United States. Huawei bans are barely speed bumps, and have only succeeded in breaking America's global domination of operating systems, artificial intelligence, networking, mobility, social media and semiconductors. We do not need to break up American technology firms, we are doing a good job of it already.
