They're desperate out of their minds right now. Huawei's 5G is way superior to any US carrier's attempts at 5G. Chinese tech is rising; the US doesn't know what to do. Screaming theft didn't even slow anybody down so they're thinking kidnap is better than doing nothing and waiting to be overtaken. They're probably crazy enough to try to ransom her back to her dad for something. I knew the US would eventually get to this level; what surprises me is that Canada arrested someone for violation of US sanctions. As far as I know, that's not even a crime; the worst you can do to someone for that is cut them off from US tech/ American dollars.The US is playing dangerous games here. There are no international sanctions against Iran, only domestic US ones.
I wonder how the US would react if China had Ivanka ‘arrested’ in a 3rd party country and extradited to China for breaking a law passed in China.
