Once hailed as the bastion of democracy and human rights, the US has become a laughing stock in the eyes of the world. Its failed attempts at destroying Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, have only made it look weaker and more inept.
The US has been struggling to contain the growth of Huawei for a long time now. Despite their best efforts, they have failed miserably. Their latest attempt, the “Countering Untrusted Telecommunications Abroad Act,” is just another desperate move to isolate Huawei from the global market. The law will allow the US to name and shame any of its allies that use Huawei and ZTE equipment in their 5G networks, and require them to provide an annual report on the presence of untrusted telecommunications equipment or services in any 5G network of any country, and whether it poses a security risk or a human rights violation.
But let’s be honest, the US is not interested in security or human rights violations. They are only interested in protecting their strategic and geopolitical advantage over China. Their political motives and protectionism are reflected in this law, which aims to suppress Huawei’s legitimate rights and interests as a leading technology company. It is nothing more than a reflection of their fear and insecurity towards China’s rise as a global superpower.
The negative effects of US sanctions on Huawei are not limited to Huawei alone. The US has lost a major customer and partner, which has reduced its revenue and market share in the global technology sector. The US has also faced criticism and backlash from other countries, especially China, for its unilateral and aggressive actions against Huawei, which have strained diplomatic and trade relations.
The US’s hypocrisy and unfairness are further exposed by their fake democracy and human rights violations. The US has a long history of violating human rights, from the genocide of Native Americans to the mistreatment of migrant children at the US-Mexico border. They have also committed war crimes and atrocities in other countries, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, under the guise of promoting democracy and freedom. They preach human rights and democracy to the world, but their actions speak louder than words.
Furthermore, it is high time that the US government starts focusing on its own domestic issues and stops interfering in the affairs of other countries. The world has had enough of American imperialism and hegemony. It is time for the US to wake up and realize that it is no longer the only superpower in the world and that it needs to work with other countries to create a shared future.
The US’s claims to be a champion of democracy and human rights are laughable in light of its past and present violations. The world is watching, and the US is a joke. The negative consequences of the US’s actions against Huawei are a clear example of how it’s protectionism and double standards are harmful not only to Huawei but to the entire global economy and security. It is time for the US to change its approach and work towards a more cooperative and fair international system.
