Meng has not done anything wrong. Why should she commit suicide? The Huawei lawsuit is not a scandal. And Meng is maintaining that she has not broken any international law and she is innocent. In fact, Huawei is suing the US now. In China, she has been considered as a fighter/heroine who is at the forefront of an effort that the Chinese as a whole is making to become great again. Why would a soldier kill himself/herself when he/she is at the front line in the heat of a fight? It makes no sense. Even in the most strict eastern Asian cultures, soldiers only kill themselves when they have lost the fight. Are you suggesting that Huawei and China are losing the battle? Ordinary people commit suicide because they have been involved in scandals and cannot clear their names. They kill themselves to minimize damage. In most cases, the suicide is meant to show that they are ashamed of what they have done and they are using the suicide as a way to apologize. Are you suggesting that Huawei's case is a scandal, they are guilty as charged and they should kill themselves to minimize damage??? Of course, people also commit suicide to show how angry they are and how much they disagree with how they have been treated. Again, that would mean the verdict has been made and they don't agree with it. Has the Huawei gotten its verdict? By committing suicide, Meng would have suggested that she has admitted to have lost the fight and she has given up the fight. A bad decision. Additionally, if/when she wins the fight, that means China has won the fight fair and square in the court of law. China will gain the upper hand, not only on the 5G market, but also on the moral/legal ground. That would be a complete and crystal clear victory. If she does anything stupid like committing suicide, that will complicate things so much. Even if she eventually wins the lawsuit, people will say that it is a pity win. That would be a moral loss. Even in the most strict East Asian society, committing suicide is a sign of weakness. Losers, wrongdoers and those too weak to change their destiny commit suicide. People forgive the sins of the bad people when they commit suicide. People feel sorry for those who have no choice but to kill themselves. Again, a sign of weakness. Those, who hold the moral/legal high ground and have confidence that they will win, will not do stupid things like committing suicide.
