This may not get through but it is still alright if it gets to CD.

Lighthizer et al said China had backtracked. He should watch what was said by Bannon at 17:29 in:

The US hawks were already trying to trick China in Buenos Aires by shifting from trade to security.  So how can the US say China was backtracking?

i can write more but will wait for wchao.

It is in fact high time for the Beijing government to fully mobilize governmental resources and galvanize private support for China's flagship telecommunications company.

All foreign companies that co-operate with the U.S. in sanctioning Huawei should be put on notice that they will lose their market shares in China FOREVER in the future.


Just by coincidence, the government has just been doing that during the past week --

First, by issuing licenses to companies planning to use Huawei's 5G technology throughout China.  

Second, keeping track of all companies that deliberately breach their contracts with Chinese high-tech companies through disrupting supply-chain exports to them -- they will permanently lose their market shares in China.

Mama Mia.....I swear that the one who makes those two decisions is not a relative of mine.

Now we all know why Trump wants to suffocate Infant Huawei in the crib.

It has just been confirmed that Apple has 7,400 backdoors in its smart phones.

That's how the U.S. keeps spying on everyone in this world who uses American-made smart phones, including Angela Merkel -- it uses those back doors.

Ask yourself what happens if people forsakes Apple in favor of Huawei?

The U.S. will have no more electronic avenues to keep eavesdropping on the rest of the world.

That's why they're so worried about Huawei taking over the entire smartphone marketplace.

The Pale House is regretting that it didn't get to see this thread first, or else it could have anticipated the two brand new moves by about ten days.

The Pale House is badly disorganized.

The U.S. security chief said Huawei has nothing to do with trade, and on the same day Trump negated his statement and said it was a good idea to put Huawei on the negotiation table for trade talks.

Never mind the delays, Mark.

Just jump in.  We're all waiting.

So Trump is threatening for Xi to meet him in Tokyo at the G20 summit.

The last time they met in Argentine they allegedly established some protocols according to which they were supposed to conduct bilateral trade talks.

I had said at the time that from the hostile stance adopted by the U.S. side when they first came to Beijing and threw down the gauntlet, there was no further need for our side to continue scheduling those meetings.

Ever since then, all the meetings had resulted in repetitious insults hurled at our side -- there was no sincerity in their talk offers because trade deficit balancing was never at the top of their agenda.  Decimation of China's high-tech sector was.

Now that they are surprised by the fact that the Huawei juggernaut simply can't be stopped due to the fact that the company had perfected technological backups for such an eventuality years ago, they say they want to go back to the negotiation stance one month ago.

Now that they have determined that Huawei can't be dealt a fatal blow, they want to let American tech companies regain the permission to export the same old parts that had been the mainstay of their global exports again.

Fat chance that China will allow them to do that.

Trump has even threatened that if there's no meeting in G20, he'll slap on those additional tariffs.

How do you think our side will respond to such a threat?



Who needs them -- now that their total l has been disproven

So Trump is threatening for Xi to meet him in Tokyo at the G20 summit.

The last time they met in Ar ...

Trump seeks an agreement yet threatens more tariffs if there is no meeting to discuss terms.

The very fact he has made a direct threat even before the meeting is convened clearly shows he intends to bully his way through without even hearing first what the other party has yet to say.

How then can any such meeting be constructive?

Secondly, he disagreed with his Lighthizer who said it should be a memorandum of understanding. Trump said it must be an agreement.

But he forgets that any bilateral agreement as a treaty has to be reviewed by his own US Congress and will be passed only if a two-thirds majority in votes is achieved by the Senate.

And if the bilateral agreement is not codified as a treaty but as an executive-congressional agreement, it will have to be separately voted as a statute in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Whichever the method, US congressional changes to the terms can be made after the document is signed and US congressmen may not even want to vote unless they see the tariffs from the other side are removed first.

But if that be so, would the other side want to remove the tariffs if the agreement is not yet ratified by the US side?  

Furthermore, one must note the Republicans only control 53 out of the 100 Senate seats and so will not achieve two-thirds majority even if all of them vote aye so the treaty method is sunk.

Additionally, the Democrats control the House of Representatives and hence will more likely vote against Trump's republican agreement.

In short, Trump has no practicable locus standi to shovel any agreement through.

There is another complication. When he flies into Tokyo for the G20 Summit, he may be thinking he has successfully leveraged his tariffs on Mexico over the heads of both his republicans and the democrat opposition.

But does he really have an agreement even when he can hold up a piece of paper?

Mexico has proposed otherwise for a safe-third-region instead of agreeing to be a safe-third-country for refugees. Would Brazil agree to be a member of that region, meaning it will have to accept refugees from Guatemala and Honduras? Is Mexico itself able and willing to absorb thousands of foreigners whose only intended destination is his USA?

Therefore any semblance of his 'agreement' will at best just be a temporary display of coralling. His immigrant problem will remain beyond 2020.

Trump must realize he can't win any deal when the whole world knows he was the one who created the problems. In the case of Mexico, by withdrawing aid for the refugee countries. In the case of China, by throwing tariffs and technology tantrums. Now that the US techs like Apple and Verizon are facing artificial challenges caused by his tariffs and sanctions, how is he going to wriggle his way out on the world stage?

Lastly, does his Trish Regan and US hawks know Nato's cyberdefense body (CCDCOE) has concluded "there is no public evidence of serious technological vulnerabilities in specific Huawei or ZTE equipment and n that regard, Chinese technology is no different from technology produced elsewhere."?

Incidentally, there is a Prof Mark Wu as trade specialist at Harvard (https://today.law.harvard.edu/mark-wu-appointed-professor-of-law/).
