I do hope that Son-san feels comfortable with his soul when he reads the current news about infant deaths in the Yemen caused by the Saudi economic blockade, Saudi air strikes, and the worlds worst outbreak of cholera caused by the blockade. I wonder how much of that $25 billion will end up as Saudi arms purchases. A blockade on Softbank might be an ideal protest.

In an ideal world yes. I for one will be changing providers asap. I am still amazed at the 9/11 spin that's kept the Saudis safe from prosecution. Amazing!!

Wallace, yep. Son should know better. He is not struggling financially. Softbank Corp are cash-rich and have the option to avoid investing in entities with abuses against children.

Softbank has in recent years over-extended itself. Many of its new investments will prove to be duds like Uber unlike the Softbank of old that got into Alibaba 20 yrs ago. The quality now is highly questionable. Throwing money indiscriminately will not get good returns for investors in the Vision Fund. We are witnessing a peak bubble in Tech, which will burst soon.
