House trying to shield US businesses

(Global Times)

08:29, October 11, 2012

The US government's second probe into China's two telecommunications giants, ZTE Corporation and Huawei, wrapped up earlier this week with the US House of Representatives' Intelligence Committee concluding that the companies pose security threats to the country.

Yet, US lawmaker's allegations are probably based more on concerns about the threats these firms present to domestic telecoms manufacturers rather than the country's sensitive industries or security interests.

In fact, according to one recent article in the Economist, "The report itself fails to spell out any specific examples of the security risks that Huawei and ZTE pose."

Instead, the inexpensive and innovative equipment developed by these two Chinese companies threatens the global position of US rivals, and US politicians are just trying to find some way to block these companies from making inroads into their home turf.
