The United States & Western democracies, especially, just leveraged a huge sigh of relief after getting word that United Kingdom PM Boris Johnson is dropping the controversial Chinese tech company, Huawei, as the nation’s provider of 5G infrastructure. Huawei is known for creating cell phones which have been competing with the Android market, mainly Samsung.
Huawei not only makes chips and phones for our phones but has been rolling out massive “Loco, PIco” devices which disperses 5G signal on top of the towers we now know.
Although PM Boris Johnson was in support of the Chinese tech giant laying the non-sensitive portions of 5G infrastructure, he said China’s lack of transparency about corona-virus made the communist-run country untrustworthy.
In recent event’s Senator Ted Cruz has said that if the UK used Huawei it would be next to impossible to share intelligence information with the ally mainly under the “Five Eye’s” an alliance community established in the early 1990s with E.U-U.K.
Earlier this week, Huawei, detecting a change of heart by the Brits due to anger over the coronavirus, sent a threatening letter to Johnson. Huawei’s UK chief Victor Zhang told British leaders that pulling up stakes now would leave Britain in the “digital slow lane.” which is something to keep in mind PM Jonhson contracting the “Corona-Virus” which originated from China Wuhan Bio Factory.
Boris Johnson was Quoted saying earlier this week. “There are those who choose to continue to attack us without presenting any evidence. Disrupting our involvement in the 5G rollout would do Britain a disservice.”
The U.S. Department of Justice has begun a China Initiative to keep the communist behemoth from exercising its 5G advantage.
In a speech in February that is well worth watching and reading, Attorney General William Barr said fighting for technological supremacy is about national security and Western everyday life. Here are just some of the stakes Barr, a former telecom company executive and Chinese studies graduate student, mentioned in his speech.
China has been trying to dominate 5G technology since late 2014, Much of the discussion on the dangers of allowing China to establish dominance in 5G has been focused on the immediate security concern of using communications networks that China can monitor and surveil. That is, in fact, a monumental danger for both the USA & NATO. For that reason alone, we should mobilize to surmount China’s drive to dominate 5G. But the stakes are far higher than this with Sovereign Privacy at stake.
From a national security standpoint, if the Industrial Internet becomes dependent on Chinese technology, China would have the ability to shut countries off from technology and equipment upon which their consumers and industry depend. But China isn’t the only entity or Nation that has power over Communication, There has been a lot of controversy with and an entity called “ICANN” which a Video of their overreaching power is below. The power the United States has today to use economic sanctions would pale by comparison to the unprecedented economic leverage we would be surrendering into the hands of China.
This is a huge step for both the United Kingdom/E.U which are falling under the United States of America’s role in taking out any Huawei equipment within our Nation’s. This is a big call on both Western World Countries pulling down and out of China’s 5G equipment on a massive scale.
