    1. Even as the US takes action on Huawei, ZTE, TikTok and other Chinese firms, Chinese companies have not stopped their pace of US listings. Chinese are risk-takers by nature. Knowing the danger there, they still rush headlong into it, just as in the Chinese proverb "moths flying into fire (灯蛾扑火)". Using another analogy, knowing a fisherman is waiting to fry them in a huge frying pan, the fish still swim into his fishing net. It's totally beyond comprehension. :confused:


    2. The Trump administration is considering whether to add Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) to a trade blacklist, which would force US suppliers to seek a difficult-to-obtain licence before shipping to the company, a Pentagon spokeswoman told Reuters on Friday (4 September 2020).

    In a statement SMIC said any suggestion it had ties to the Chinese military was a “false accusation”. It continued: “The company is in complete shock ... nevertheless, SMIC is open to sincere and transparent communication with the US Government agencies in hope of resolving potential misunderstandings.”

    3. Donald Trump has “ordered” American companies by tweet to stop doing business with China. In addition, Pompeo has urged US firms to cut ties with Chinese tech companies and apps. Banishing business with Chinese companies, especially tech firms, is just the first phase of America's grand strategy of tightening the stranglehold on the Chinese economy.

    The second phase of America's grand strategy would be urging the whole world to stop doing business with China. Its aim is to choke the Chinese economy to death just like what had happened to the Black American George Floyd.

    4. In his recent speech at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in California, Mike Pompeo fired the first shot of the second phase by suggesting the creation of a bloc, what he termed “a new grouping of like-minded nations - a new alliance of democracies,” to oppose China. The CCP now poses the primary challenge to the world's liberty, he said as he urged countries to stand up to China together and "draw common lines in the sand".

    5. If we study the 240 years of US imperial wars against other countries, we should discover the first principle of US hegemony and global governance is to eliminate any potential rival at all costs. The economies of America and all other countries will also be damaged by the US hostile moves against the Chinese economy. However, the US will not care a damn because its ultimate goal is to bring China back to the Middle Ages or the tragic era of the Qing Dynasty. Uncle Sam is glad to lose both legs in exchange for his enemy's head.

    Some Asian leaders have voiced concern that they could be forced to choose sides in the Sino-US geopolitical rivalry sooner or later. The US hostility against China is reminiscent of its economic warfare against pre-war Japan. If the US succeeds to force a majority of nations to stand on its side, China will be in an untenable position, just like Japan before the Second World War. China must prepare for all possible contingencies before disaster strikes.
