Spying is not the worst they are doing. MICROSOFT is doing that too. The worst is that they are conniving with the warlords of rogue states such as Iran and N Korea in spite of international trade bans.

But hasn't the US been conniving with NATO nations for decades?
And let's not forget the creating of false state of Israel to try and keep the Arabs in check.
Cheap oil has always been irresistible to the oligarchs of the west.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

There is a historical precedent.

Citing security concerns, China central government banned the use of a Microsoft products in all government offices a few years ago. I don’t remember there being a big hoopla here about that. If anything, the people on the bbs were in full support of that decision.

As they were when. China fined Qualcomm almost $900m because Chinese chipset manufacturers didn’t want to pay the price of the chips. When Microsoft wanted to buy Nokia, Chinese regulators stepped in and stated that one of their stipulations for allowing the acquisition to go ahead would be that Chinese chipset makers would not be charged any increase in prices in future.

And when it consider the level of piracy of Microsoft products over the years in China ... there was a famous quote from Bill Gates (or one of the other senior reps) who stated that revenue from China was less than that of the Netherlands ... Microsoft’s response was then to use verification codes to ensure users were using legal versions of their software.

What happened next? The Chinese government regulators launched an anti-trust action against Microsoft's use of verification code software, stating it monopolistic behavior and threatening large fines.

But now the show is on the other foot and cries of “unfair!” and “no evidence” fill the boards.

Could you translate that into English or at least tell the readers what you are getting at?

If you can't read, that's not my problem.
A couple of typos ... and your eyes glaze over. Or perhaps its because you can't be bothered to read real and accurate Chinese history.
