It's a bit hard for the US to maintain the pretense of national security now ...

It's kind of strange you don't tend to hear as much in the mainstream media of the extent to which the US is throttling China's ability to buy chips - probably because it's now blindingly obvious that it has absolutely nothing to do with national security and everything to do with the US maintaining power over its closest competitor.

For the US, Huawei's death knell was when it was on track to eclipse Apple as the highest grossing company in the world. Given the state of the US Entity list now, I would actually think there are more Chinese tech companies on there than any other country in the world (in comparison), but also I would go so far as to suggest that most Chinese tech companies are on the list ....
