To its great credit, the Trump administration has recognized the grave threat posed to the national security of the United States – and, for that matter, most of the world’s other nations – by the fifth-generation wireless networks on offer from the Chinese Communist Party doing business as Huawei.
In recent years, the American government has relentlessly warned its allies – and anybody else who would listen – not to get hooked up to Huawei’s 5G communications systems on the grounds that they will enable Beijing to engage in ominous data-theft and -manipulation.
The Chinese Communists have responded by thuggishly threatening nations that heed our warnings. So, Washington must: a) push back hard against such behavior; b) desist from supplying technology or know-how that will offset much-needed sanctions on Huawei; and c) supply as soon as possible American alternatives that will provide reliable, affordable and secure communications networks.
