  1. It has always been political. USA wants to stop Huawei expanding their 5g business so they require Canada to arrest Meng at airport without any evidence.

  2. If the Chinese do not nip this Anglo's kidnapping of their nationals in the bud, the Anglos will do it again.
    China should hit them really hard just to teach them a lesson !

  3. US must be very careful not to spur anti-americanism by imposing its laws on everyone on the planet. God Bless America, but also she must do her best to act with wisdom.

  4. What legal obligation would a Chinese company possibly have to uphold US sanctions on Iran? Since Huawei doesn't seem to have any business presence in the US, does the federal court even have jurisdiction over its execs?

  5. China is still in their epic days of 'king's dynasty' threatening 'serious consequences' and immediately pick the a canadian and accused spying.

  6. America is making too much mistakes…too much .Tech theft is one thing , now that huawei has mastered those tech it's too late , they will not abandon them , they are more advanced in a lot of sector than us now.But to push every nation and partner to drop the dollar as fast as they can is a huge strategic mistake.

  7. Huawei is not a company, it's a front for the Chinese government and the communist party. This is power politics, this is how it's always been since the middle ages.

  8. Trump just say he is dirty(linking China trade talks with investigation into Huawei CFO)

  12. Indeed. Why would Trump make those comments? Unbelievable. Shocking. He threw Mr. Lighthizer and Mr. Trudeau under the bus and gained nothing. I just can't believe it. It is the worst coverup story now, worse than the MBS Khashoggi case.
