And I do not see China as winning this 'cloud war' just for one reason: trust-worthiness.

Yes, the US govt can legally look into your data if you house it in a US datacenter - but the reasons to do so still need to have some sort of legality, which with legal counsel can be contested / appealed.

China, on the other hand, does not concern itself with such trivialities. You can be in trouble for any banality.

Why subject yourself to that sort of additional stress of disruption?
