Bugging a building and engineering backdoors in telecom infrastructure are very different - ask GCHQ. Snowden showed that the NSA had managed the latter.

The USA is well behind in the race to develop 5G, but, as previously suggested, controlling one or more of the European vendors would enable it to catch up. This whole fiasco is mainly a reaction to the USA's inability to dominate the tech sector as it did in the past.

We know the US does it and that China probably does it.

I remember the US was behind on 3G.

The USA appears to be "well behind" in many different ways.

But I do have the option - and there are many, many places I'd sooner go to than the USA.

But not China, no, they are a well ahead with one party rule, re-education camps, supressing free speech, imprisoning journalists, currency fixing, and bugging entire continents.

Not to mention interning people and working them to death through enforced labour and then reselling their hair and organs to wealthy foreigners. They've cornered the market in that. Well or at least they had until recently when the US customs service caught wind of that illegal human hair shipment.

TLDR; China is ****ing shit.

Rest of the world benefited from all this when it was happening. Everyone turned a blind eye to this and now are blaming China like they didn't know it was happening all along.
