In an article published on June 4, 2013, Huanqiu expressed its unhappiness with the United States’ accusations about China’s cyber attacks against the U.S. Hunqiu warned of the potential danger to security that eight specific American companies may have brought to China. The companies are Cisco, IBM, Google, Qualcomm, Intel, Apple, Oracle, and Microsoft. The article compared these eight companies to the Eight-Power Allied Forces, the aggressive troops that Britain, the United States, Germany, France, tsarist Russia, Japan, Italy, and Austria sent to China in 1900 and said that the eight companies are even more dangerous in a time of crisis.
The writer made three suggestions about how to restrict the power and freedom of these eight companies in China.
