    The US is attacking Huawei and China — without its own 5G strategy

    The United States and China are racing to build out high-speed 5G networks, and President Donald Trump doesn't want America to come in second place.

    5G is designed to bring faster speeds and lower lag times than previous wireless networks like 4G and 3G. While much has been said about how the networks will give consumers faster downloads of videos or games, 5G is perhaps more importantly a potential game-changer for functions such as driverless cars or remote surgery that require quick, reliable internet connections.

    "The simple fact is, irrespective about the laws on espionage or anything else ... the actual reality is that in China, if the party wants something, they're going to get it," Inkster said.

    5G is a centerpiece of China's ambition to lead technology for the globe, according to Anthony Glees, director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham. He said China has the ability to "weaponize" technology like 5G.

    "They seek to maximize the opportunities they have for extending their influence in the world and underpinning their global position and power," he said in a phone interview on Thursday.

    Regardless, China is off to a strong start in the 5G race.

    China "came out of the starting blocks," according to Bill Lawrence, a lawyer focused on wireless telecommunications at U.S. firm Burr & Forman.

    "At the end of the day, the U.S. is trying to outpace China for the lead," he said.

    US's approach is if it's own firms can't build something new they will also not let you buy from China

    The failed state of murica is now receiving daily bitchslaps from their own lapdogs and allies who are now loyal customers of Huawei.
