News Huawei: Chinese espionage or US corporate socialism?

  1. Oct 12, 2012 #1
    Is it more likely that Huawei is a front for Chinese espionage, or that this is just a protectionist act by the US government to protect US networking firms from market discipline. I think back to the ban on Japanese supercomputers in the nineties and eighties to protect Cray Inc.

    In addition to any evidences that the US government might have, it's the political pressure from opposition that influenced the government decision IMO.
