Why do U.S. try so hard to decimate Huawei?
It’s believed U.S. (likely instigated by Israel) are unable to compete with the commercial and technological prowess of Chinese telecom gear makers, Huawei in particular.

How do I come to this conclusion?
The Chinese players got two market advantages that no one else could compete — Price and Politics.
While Huawei (and to certain extend, ZTE), may not be technologically more advanced than the west per se. The Chinese telecom gear makers nonetheless are a very serious threat to market dominance of U.S. corporations and by its extension Israelis, as the Chinese could supply equally good equipment at far better prices and they’re happy to trade with just about anyone, from dictatorship to Banana Republic. Something neither American nor Israelis players could compete.
How is Israel a factor?
It’s no secret Israel wanted to wipe Iran off the map. It’s also no secret U.S. impose sanctions on Iran at Israel’s behest. Therefore, it’s not difficult to see why is Huawei targeted as a sworn enemy, so to speak.
It’s said the arrest of the CFO of the China’s largest telecoms equipment company, Huawei, carries hallmarks of deep state or behind-the-scenes sabotage designed to rupture recent progress between US President Trump and China President Xi Jinping on strategic issues.
Is Huawei CFO Arrest An Attempt to Sabotage Trump Xi Talks?
Judging from our observation, and if one were to believe U.S. is run by the Deep State (with Israel as a member), then it would appear this is no the case. In another word, Trump is a non-factor as the end result will still be the same whether there is trade war or not. Because technology is the major tool for the Deep State to maintain global domination.
What About Security Risks?
As commented by a reader a while ago,
Huawei Demands the West Provide Evidence That Their Products are a Security Risk
With Edward Snowden’s expose that the NSA records everything we send online and saves it in a database. And we know from subsequent disclosures that the CIA does the same thing, and that these operations have not stopped.
That said, why should folk in U.S. go into a moral panic when told China is going to spy on Americans with a phone. In all honesty, most people would probably rather be spied on by the Chinese than the US government, because there is no reason that the Chinese would care what they’re doing.
This whole “Huawei spying” drama is just about the US doing the dirty work of telecom equipment makers, and this particular segment is predominately dominated by Israelis interests.
Furthermore, there isn’t even any actual evidence that the Chinese doing this.
The chairman of Huawei called on the United States, Australia and other governments on Tuesday to provide evidence to back up claims the Chinese tech giant is a security risk as it launched a public relations effort to defuse fears that threaten its role in next-generation communications.
Accusations against the biggest global supplier of network gear stem from “ideology and geopolitics,” Ken Hu said. He warned excluding Huawei from the rollout of fifth-generation telecoms would raise costs and hamper innovation.
Hu talked to American, European and Asian reporters who were invited to Huawei headquarters in southern China as part of efforts to tamp down concerns the company says are unfounded.
If governments have evidence, “it should be made known,” Hu said, adding that governments don’t have to disclose information publicly but at least should show phone companies that will be blocked from using Huawei technology.
Australia and New Zealand have blocked use of Huawei technology in 5G networks. The U.S. and Taiwan also restrict use of Huawei products. Japan’s cybersecurity agency says suppliers including Huawei that are considered high-risk will be excluded from government procurement.
No government has released evidence of wrongdoing by Huawei, but the accusations threaten its ability to compete in a sensitive field as carriers prepare to invest billions of dollars.
Huawei, founded in 1987 by a former military engineer, is China’s first global tech brand and a national champion at the head of an industry Beijing is promoting as part of efforts to transform the country into a technology creator.
That puts Huawei at the heart of strains over the ruling Communist Party’s technology aspirations, competition with Western economies and ties between companies and government, including possibly spying.
Huawei has been working on 5G since 2009 and is one of the major suppliers of the technology, along with Sweden’s LM Ericsson and Finland’s Nokia Corp. The company whose technology winds up being adopted stands to reap billions of dollars from sales and license fees.
And Huawei’s technology is probably better.
They seem to have the jump on everyone at this point, which is one reason why their CFO was kidnapped by spineless Canada at behest of the Deep State.
Anti-Huawei Crusade: US Creating Coalition to Exert Pressure on China – Scholars
The US and its allies are seeking to expel Chinese telecom giant Huawei and its advanced 5G equipment from their markets, researchers told Sputnik, suggesting that the recent punitive campaign could be unrelated to the ongoing trade talks between Washington and Beijing.
“The punitive campaign against Huawei is obviously a long-term US objective, but this may not necessarily be related to the Sino-US trade negotiations”, says Li Kai, a researcher at the Shanxi University of Finance and Economics (SXUFE).
The China Daily presumed Tuesday that the recent attacks on Huawei by the US and its allies were aimed at forcing Beijing into making concessions amid the US-Chinese trade talks.
“The parties behind the attack have even used a political kidnap to force the company, and China, into submission”, the newspaper highlighted, referring to Huawei senior executive Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Canada on 1 December 2018 over the alleged violation of anti-Iran sanctions.
However, according to Li, “even if Huawei’s problem is addressed during the [Sino-American] negotiations, both sides will be unable to reach a compromise”.”Certain progress can be achieved with regard to the Meng Wanzhou case, but the US punitive campaign against the use of Huawei equipment in 5G projects will not be stopped, because the issue affects US long-term interests!” the Chinese researcher suggested.
On 23 November 2018, The Wall Street Journal reported that Washington had “initiated an extraordinary outreach campaign to foreign allies” urging them to avoid using telecommunications equipment produced by China’s Huawei Technologies Co.
Will France Follow in the US’ Footsteps?
Meanwhile, Les Echos newspaper reported Monday that the French government was mulling over a bill amendment aimed against Huawei. The news emerged just two days before Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to France, scheduled for 23 January 2019.According to the media outlet, the amendment is designed to extend the powers of French security operatives to make retroactive inspections of telecoms operators’ equipment. It will also reportedly restrict Huawei’s access to the French 5G networks.
Les Echos stressed that the US, Australia, New Zealand and Japan had already banned the Chinese telecom giant from supplying 5G equipment to their markets.
On 20 January, The Globe and Mail published an op-ed by Richard Fadden, a former national security adviser to the Canadian prime minister, who argued that “Canada’s government should… ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G networks to protect the security of Canadians”.
It was earlier reported that Huawei could be banned from 5G in Germany, while UK telecoms group BT confirmed in December 2018 that it would not buy the Chinese tech company’s equipment for the core of its 5G wireless networks.Alexander Lomanov, chief researcher at the Institute for Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), echoes Li: “The United States is ready to make every effort to persuade its allies to create a united broad front to exert pressure on China thus squeezing it out of Western markets, and cutting it off from Western technology imports”.
He cited China Daily’s remark that Washington and its allies have adopted “wolf pack tactics” against Beijing.
“What will China do next, when attacked by a big pack of grey wolves?” Lomanov asked. “Will it remain all alone till the end or understand that it also needs allies amid the [new] Cold War?”
According to the Russian scholar, it is not the first time that the West has created a broad coalition against China.
Meng’s Extradition to the US
The Huawei issue has taken on a new significance amid reports that Washington may soon make a formal request for Meng’s extradition.
“I have been told they [the US Justice Department] will proceed. We have had no indication that they will not”, Canadian Ambassador to the US David MacNaughton told CNN on 21 January.
It is expected that Canada will receive the document by 30 January, which coincides with the beginning of the second round of trade negotiations between the delegation, headed by Vice Premier of the People’s Republic of China Liu He, and their American counterparts in Washington.In response, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying emphasised that Washington and Ottawa had violated their extradition agreement in the case of Meng Wanzhou and reiterated Beijing’s call for releasing the Huawei executive.
For its part, the Chinese communication giant expressed hope that the US and Canada would soon agree to free Meng: “Huawei hopes that the US and the Canadian governments would be able to make Miss Meng free again as soon as possible. We also hope for a fair decision by the US and the Chinese judicial systems”, the official statement reads.
