Right on Huawei!

Punch the bully back when he tries to take your lunch money.

U.S. is just jealous.

If history is anything to go by, Huawei show casing new technologies to the market usually end up in court over IP misappropriation. But this time, USA et al (eg Japanese and Korean) may not be so interested in economic coupling with China. IP lawyers are due for some bread and honey.

I have no doubt Huwawei will do fine as a company. Even if they are only in China, that still gives them the market of 20% of the world. More than enough to be a huge company.

But I doubt they’ll get a lot of traction in the rest of the world, as they are a Chinese company, and the CCP requires CCP loyal members procire oversight in such companies. Huwawei cannot be thought of as an independent entity, separate from the CCP. So many nations will not be willing to trust them with their communications infrastructure, as the CCP influence becomes a national security issue.

This is going to become more and more of a problem with China as their influence exerts outwards. The rest of the word will always be negotiating with both a company and the CCP.

This is also why it’s so important to watch what the CCP do in Hong Kong. If they put tanks in the streets and execute the protestors, as they did at Tienanmen Square, that will show us the type of people we’re actually dealing with, when interacting with Huwawei.

The US doesn't really care if Hua - china communist dictatorship's spying machine - wei, does very well. The Americans just don't want prc's stuff on their networks, especially their military networks. That was the main intention of Trump's ban.

It wasn't really about business; it was about national security. Since prc has a history of stealing other people's IP.

I say good luck to those countries who have been forced and bullied into buying Huawei's stuff; you are now being controlled and your ideas/thoughts/businesses are being stolen.

The U.S. claims the company might aid Chinese spying, though Huawei denies that and American officials have provided no evidence.

Because there is no evidence.

and one has to be suffering from serious brain defect to believe anything uttered by the U.S. goVernment especially the present government. The damage if WMD lie is not limited to the massive destruction, deaths and suffering in Iraq but to U.S credibility as well.

China doesn't play with a level playing field, there is very little true competition in China, almost all foreign companies are banned or limited in what they can do, so good on Trump.

After all, no one else is big enough to challenge China

Key quote and all that matters,

> "Nobody is going to spend money to buy a premium Huawei phone if it doesn't have maps, YouTube, Google Play," said Samm Sacks, an expert in Chinese digital policy at the New America think tank."

Well that was a quick turnaround! Where are they stealing the technology from now?

Trump is already working personally on 6G.

But the same can be really said about US tech companies, who are also known to spy for the US government. And the US government doesn't have a good track record around the globe either. The CCP's abuses are mostly done in their own country, comparatively.

And yet, despite all that, people would rather trust the Americans than the china-nese. Even Chinese don't trust china-nese. Just ask Taiwanese & Hong Kong Chinese.

And the US government doesn't have a good track record around the globe either.

Yes, people are so ungrateful for the number of American lives that were lost during WW2 while liberating the rest of the world from the Axis tyranny.

The CCP's abuses are mostly done in their own country, comparatively..

The problem is that the CCP invades other people's countries and claims they belong to them. So technically, the abuses are not "in their own country".

This company's foundation is all but based on stolen technology, and they are still doing it, and will do anything to get a edge over the competition, they are basically banned in the west, this is something they never ever expected.

The US doesn't want a foreign company like Huawei spying on Americans.

They want American companies to be the ones spying on Americans and other countries.
