Some Congressmen are working on bills that, in their aggregate, would bar sales of critical computer components to the People’s Republic of China’s communications companies Huawei, ZTE, and other PRC companies caught violating our export laws or sanctions on those companies or companies with which these do business.
The PRC is upset.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said it was all “hysteria,” and
I believe the action of these few representatives are an expression of extreme arrogance and an extreme lack of self-confidence[.]
The PRC’s insults and hysterical response, whether individual or taken together, are sufficient evidence that we’re on the right track.
We cannot allow PRC insults to influence our domestic matters (or our international matters, come to that), particularly including moves to hold those doing business in our nation accountable for their illegal activities.
PRC hysteria should simply be disregarded where it’s not ridiculed.
