To tie it all up the week of the trade talk in Washington:|
These thugs are up to no good, and anyone caught defending them in these forums should be found guilty by association.
I wouldn't want to make any guesses as to who's going to be exchanged for what.
But the matter of the fact is that there's a ton of evidence against the two Canadian detainees in China, now supplemented by a third crook caught in a $284 million fraud attempt in Macau.
From altruistic Norman Bethune to French-toasted Trudeau -- a momentous turnaround of Canadian imagery in Chinese eyes in just one day.
That one day wasn't just another December 1, 20XX. It was a personal tryst arranged by Trump when he made that call to our side, "Hey my great friend, let's have a meeting in Buenos Aires during the G20 to talk about trade."
And of course he had known before the meeting about Meng's itinerary with a stopover in Vancouver. If he was not involved, it would have been an easy thing for him to do to show respect and goodwill to our side by calling up Trudeau and saying, "What are you doing to Meng?"
The fact that he didn't make such a call but instead insisted afterwards that he could 'help' speaks volumes about the political nature of the arrest.
That's why I believe that Pierre Trudeau must be turning in his grave to see that by offering his services to the criminal scheme, his personally-anointed but spoilt son has squandered the bilateral political goodwill painstakingly built by Canadian leaders like him over many years.
Three Canadians have hitherto been arrested variously for espionage, drug smuggling and fraud attempt to the tune of $284 million. All three have solid evidence pitted against them for their crimes down to the last kilogram or dollar. One has already received the death penalty.
So if Meng is used as a bargaining chip in exchange for any combination of these three Canadians, it wouldn't be feasible because not only because Meng is the innocent victim here, there is no assurance that future Chinese businessmen will not be targeted in the same type of extortionist scheme to which Meng is subjected, and any such exchange would set a very bad precedent for future international trade.
In retrospect, Trudeau’s iron-aluminum sanction trouble with Trump was merely a feint stroke used by the American president to distract critics from his real aim -- the destruction of China's vaunted high-tech machine exemplified by Huawei.
Let's hope he will come to his senses and desist from traveling down the path of no return, for his troubles with China won't be over unless he changes his course in midstream, and the national sentiment in the case dictates that it would be a long drawn-out conflict if Meng is not handled correctly like her dad was entrusting the Canadian court to do.
