    Its great, that ex-ambassador is speaking so much BS is unbelievable. He even said the Chinese is praticing hostage diplomacy! Oh the irony!

    Also, noticed there was no one there to offer a counter-view and contest the claim! Talk about an echo chamber. Echo chamber.

    It really doesn't past the logic test! If Tariffics are so good for the US, and hurting China so much, as claimed by Trump.

    Then the logical conclusion is more tariffics immediately. Why wait till you meet Xi?

    Actually, it says 40% are skeptical about switching, not 50% (50% is another unrelated statistic). Sample size was 700 individuals. Also, the poll was almost 87.7% Malaysian, 7.7% Southeast Asian, 4.6 % Chinese; I was worried that the majority data might have been from China. So if Ark can capture a third of foreign Asian markets right off the bat, that's a really impressive start and taking a huge chunk away from Google. I'm expecting a single digit start in the EU. In both Asia and Europe, if Ark is really as impressive as Huawei says and the user interface is very similar to Android, its popularity should balloon by word-of-mouth. That's how Huawei grew in the first place.

    Pretty sure about it.

    Unlike many Chinese kids whose brain has been washed hollow by Western media either because their English worship leads them to believe everything written in English is truth, or because they identify themselves with the West ideologically, a lot of Yankees do have the ability to distinguish "police action" from "war".

    If Trump chose to use military invasion to Venezuela as a platform for his 2020 re-election, he would lose because Americans know Russia and China are allies of Maduro's Venezuela, therefore, Trump's platform would potentially cause a war between the US and Russia / China or Russia + China. The price would be too high for them. If Trump chose to use military invasion to Haiti as a platform for his 2020 re-election, he probably could win because Americans know Haiti is an international orphan, this thus would be a police action and the US could win easily. If Trump chose to use military intervention in Syria as a platform for his 2020 re-election, he would lose because people know there is a strong Russian presence there, thus electing him would probably mean electing WW3. Everyone loves easy win, and the Yankees are no exception.

    Any US politician advocating military confrontation against Russia, or China, or Iran, or NK, will have no chance to win a presidential election. But, if he advocates to weaponize US economic power against any country he doesn't like, people won't care too much, and he would win because many Americans believe the US still holds a solid economic edge over anyone in the world, thus can win easily.

    It is a shame that they can't make HK give asylum to Assange. I bet the US would change their tune about the extradition policy quick snap.
    They should give money to Kim Dotcom so he could live in Hong Kong (the guy from mega.nz).

    https://www.scmp.com/tech/big-tech/...may-have-toughest-job-tech-world-taking-apple Huawei’s Richard Yu may have the toughest job in the tech world - taking on Apple without Android
    • Yu’s career success in Europe earned him a place on the company board, the small 17-person circle that has the final say on Huawei’s entire business
    • Despite a stellar career, Yu’s off-the-cuff remarks have also brought him some trouble over the years
    I've now read it, but need to go so just the last paragraph here:

    An update of the canadian situation. I hope i have done the link correctly, please bear with me guys, I'm not tech minded at all, just an old guy trying to live in the modern world.

    About 15min in, one of the commentators actually admitted that "we got played by the Americans"! Thats quite a statement.
    And about 17 minutes in, another comentator said "when you paint yourself in a corner, you have got to step on the paint to get out"! Lol. Quite revealing really.
