There are no Boeing 737 MAX 8s in use by Australian Airlines...
Boeing has canceled a conferenc ...
I was referring to Indonesian Airlines as a parody of its recent accident.
The first priority is on the fate of Meng, who has just gone through legal proceedings in Vancouver, B.C.
Meng's release from Canadian custody is of utmost importance to China's image in the world -- far more than how many Spaniards, Argentinians, Panamanians or Portuguese line the streets or wave our flags in welcoming our leaders.
And it really doesn't matter whether China assumes technological leadership by 2025 or 2027.
The important thing is to secure Meng's release from Canadian custody in 2018 and not a day beyond.
Or else Huawei will lose a larger chunk of Western nations supporting its 5G platform because Huawei's success isn't just due to its technological prowess, but its image of having strong support from its Chinese motherland.
Without that image, Huawei will be in serious trouble.
This is a political crisis of the first order, and we cannot let the U.S. set the agenda by letting Meng be wrongfully extradited to the U.S.
What Trump is doing is blackmailing China while the trade talks continue, and Huawei's own announcement that it trusted the impartiality of U.S. courts simply missed the point -- which shows that it either has terrible legal advice, or that it was simply acting in accordance with governmental guidance.
If this is not resolved to our satisfaction, we should seize the CEO of any American company that is found to have had any dealings with Taiwan in violation of the Three Communiques that the U.S. had signed with China.
The trouble with our side is that we believe in the worthiness of words, or at least the signed documents, of any Western leader that has reached post-negotiation agreements with us. We cannot imagine that they could be such shameless liars without even a modicum of self-respect.
We have had no or little experience dealing with complete scoundrels who put such documents into the paper shredder almost as soon as they are signed. The winners of American elections aren't based on their trustworthiness, but on their demagoguery abilities.
So the only recourse to solve the Meng situation is to seize their CEOs based on their non-observance of the Three Communiques in trading with the Taiwanese on our largest offshore island.
