US' absurd logic in calling Chinese firms as 'potential Trojan horses'

It's absurd in calling Chinese firms as 'potential Trojan horses' . (File photo)

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission issued a 156-page report last Wednesday full of concerns about and sensational descriptions of Chinese investment in the United States. It claimed that the security and economic risks posed by the large Chinese state role made such investment a "potential Trojan horse." It is a shocking metaphor to Chinese.

The first thing that comes on mind when reading this metaphor is that the United States has made much larger investment in China than the other way around, and many U.S. companies have close ties to Washington. How many "potential Trojan horses" are there in China then?

It is so weird that Chinese can still sleep well all these years, and local Chinese governments at all levels are still actively attracting foreign investment. They should probably wake up immediately, and catch U.S. "Trojan horses" in China.

There is no such organization in China like the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission that is designed to damage the two countries' economic cooperation. Even if some "bored" organization really came up with a similar report telling Chinese that Microsoft, IBM, and other U.S. companies could be "potential Trojan horses" aimed at "conquering China," the organization would very likely be flooded with criticism and derision.
