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

It'll be a hard war to lose when they can simply have their politicians pass a "You must use a Chinese provider" regulation and pretty much guarantee survival in the face of whoever wins out between MSFT, AMZN, or GOOG.

Safest bet for any investor is to buy some shares in all of them - then it doesn't matter who wins; its not like the cloud market is going to get smaller as everyone rushes back to on-prem DC's.
