The companies to be that will be sanctioned are BAE Systems Land and Armaments, Alliant Techsystems Operations, AeroVironment, Viasat and Data Link Solutions.

They may "sanction" these companies but won't stop stealing data from them.

As if China was buying anything from them other than for research purposes.

Err... basicall all countries, except a few in the third world? I am no friend of the CCP, but please note that the US in the 70s transferred diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China, endorsing the one-China policy.

The one China policy, at least as the US acknowledges it, was flawed from the day it was stated, being based on a false premise about what the Taiwanese think.

The desire of the West, lead by the US, to profit from cheap mainland China production to simultaneously claim that Taiwan is a "country" is a amazing example of hypocrisy. Recognize Taiwan first, before "defending" it!

The desire of the CCP to refuse all recognition of those that recognize Taiwan is an amazing denial of reality.

maybe commies still not understanding the meaning of word "sanction". When US selling not arms equipment to commies, how do you "sanction" that companies? it is weird logic only happens in china and i am sure chinese are dancing singing celebrating they are finally “sanction" US companies...ok, nobody care

China views democratically governed Taiwan as its territory, a claim Taiwan's government rejects.

which countries in the world recognize that Taiwan is part of china territory? or maybe which agreements any countries ever signed and said that Taiwan belongs to china? under the circumstances and logic of commies, i hereby declare that Moon is my territory. If from now onward US sending spacecraft or any astronauts to Moon without my permission, i am going to be real mad and angry, and i will sanction NASA for it. Take my word NASA! you hear me!

In exchange for recognizing the mainland as "China," China agreed not to attack Taiwan. I guess their agreements cannot be counted on.

mind you, it is transferred to KMT, not to ccp. it is both very big different story and the commies is confusing the world by using this bug. second, KMT still exist today in Taiwan, means basically by theory, china belongs to Taiwan, and not Taiwan belongs to china

basicall all countries, except a few in the third world?

all countries, including US, recognized One China policy. but that "One China" is ccp china (people republic of china), or Taiwan version ROC (Republic of China), remain unclear. Until now, we never heard any leaders saying the four simple words : " Taiwan belongs to china" . We only heard One China policy. By theory, KMT and ccp never sign any cease fire agreement, they are still at war. We never know which version of "china" it will turn up to be

Definition of a useless action. US arms manufacturers do no business with China so such sanctions achieve absolutely nothing.

China is Laughable.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Sanction all Chinese weapons and ammunition makers. Like Norinco.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

This is a PR stunt. No material change to anyone - China or these companies. I'd be more impressed if China banned EV, PV, RAM, cameras, phones, networking gear and all semiconductor sales or products using those Chinese-made parts. Now, THAT would be impressive.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Good. We shouldn't let those companies sell their technology to China in the first place. If congressional corruption hadn't been completely legalized by the Supreme Court, we wouldn't be.

BAE? British Aerospace Engineering?

You think THEY care ?

It won’t make a dent in their sales

Sorry but the Navajos already beat you to that one /:

The sanctions are meaningless. None of these companies do business in China. If anything it points out clearly that China has no leverage to use against the US for supporting Taiwan. The fanbois will say China could ban sales of semiconductors or RAM, but that would hurt China more than it would hurt the US. Example, the computer I am typing on has US made RAM (the same RAM is available from South Korea too) and US and Taiwanese made semiconductors, something I specified when ordering the machine. The only Chinese made components are the plastic case and the screen.

When I shop I refuse to buy Chinese made anything and it never prevents me from buying what I need.

This won’t happen, but a guy can dream.

Given that China and Russia clearly have no concerns with nuclear transfers to Iran, N. Korea and now Belarus, the United States could easily stabilize the Taiwan straights by providing Taiwan with 100 thermonuclear weapons in the 400kt range along with the delivery capability.

That would be the end of the “inevitably” of Chinese reunification talk.

They can’t. They don’t want to and are afraid of China pulling the plug on something.

Yes, that something being the gorilla sized market. Doesn't mean anything other than that China has a lot of people.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Wait what’s the problem? Every CCP supporter I talk to says Taiwan is part of China. Is China admitting that Taiwan is a totally separate and independent entity then?

That means no rare metals or critical minerals will be exported to these companies from China!

Oh no!!!! Anyway...

They are already sourcing all the rare earth minerals they need from the high desert of California. The entire supply and manufacturing chain exists in the US now.

This after The Party decided that the sanctioned companies were Violating Organizational Principles Against The Wind. That, and /or Deviating From a Marxism-Leninism Mission, or Resisting Organizational Censorship will land a company and it's personnel in very hot water in China.

Any and all countries would do well to at least get to the point of nuclear latency. Nothing wrong with being prepared as you certainly don't want to find yourself without nukes when you need them.

Natural tit for tat by China in response to many US sanctions.

Thus, no surprise, just another type of escalation and geopolitical destabilization that benefits few and damages most people globally sadly...

Excellent, good old US must learn what China should be treated on the same high level...

Little by little, China will give a great lesson in humility to US..

Bravo China, keep going!!..

All Western countries have followed suit. If you doubt that, try to find a Taiwanese embassy in your neighbourhood.

The desire of the West, lead by the US, to profit from cheap mainland China production to simultaneously claim that Taiwan is a "country" is a amazing example of hypocrisy. Recognize Taiwan first, before "defending" it!
