the U.S. House Intelligence Committee criticized Huawei for failing “to provide evidence to support its claims that it complies with all international sanctions or U.S. export laws.”

Gee, does someone have to “provide evidence” it complies with U.S. laws? The committee should instead provide evidence the company breaks the “laws”. Plus, since when the Us ‘laws’ are imposed to outside of the Us? If we tolerate this aggression, someday this rogue may want to levy taxes from people of other countries.

It’s time this cold-war-thinking committee stops making this kind of bs.

A Bain deal so dirty, Bush couldn’t even live with it. Shot down for ‘national security reasons’:

Back in the day when mechanical looms were all the rage, Great Britain tried to prevent that technology from making it to their American colonies and later to the fledgling United States. That effort didn’t work out so well for Britain but here we are 250 years later trying to do the same thing.

It sounds like many of these US and British CEO’s, maybe others, are playing both sides of the street which isn’t hard to reconcile except when they turn out to be flag wavers too. Void their passports and let them live in the middle east or China. Romney too.

No surprise here. Why we sell high tech to ANY Chinese company shows the venality of American companies. As long as they make money, they don’t care who buys it. No difference than Standard Oil of NY (Mobil), Ford, GM, NY City Bank, etc. in WWII selling to the Nazis while American GI’s were being killed (“Trading with the Enemy 1933-1945″ source)

Apparently Eideard does not know how encrypted data travels through cell phones, military radios, civilian radios, wi-fi….

Well Eideard, let us help you out of your cave. It’s called a digital antenna. They range from walmart wireless router quality to radio-astronomy observatories. Google it. Know it.

No wonder the Iranians cancelled the order… buying comms equipment from China or Germany might be safe but anything coming from the US might have hidden backdoors in it.
