I dunno which numb skull thought of soliciting help from China, especially considering the horrendous quality of Chinese products and services. Said numb skulls could have, even in dubious transactions, had the better sense of letting the Americans get the deal. But no. They had to get Chinese.
Perhaps they expect the broadband project to fail in the first instance and then they'll be forced to get into another lucrative deal to replace the Chinese one.
My head hurts.
