Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

How do you kill a company? The answer, in the context of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, appears to be deprivation, removing ready access to the elements that distinguish smartphones from very expensive chunks of anodized aluminum and glass. The latest blow: Chip designer ARM has reportedly severed ties with the company. Huawei could arguably survive without Google. Without ARM? Not so much.

If Huawei Loses ARM's Chip Designs, It's Toast

Will it be toast?

Just like Huawei has a Plan B in case it loses access to Google apps, it also has a Plan C in case of this scenario.

EVERY THING the US has tried to throw at China has backfired. This will be no different.

Tough to plan for this type of outage, logistics wouldn't be immediately in place to make copy parts for the release of hauwei's next gen of phones.

Huawei and ZTE are already screwed. Google won't give them access to their apps and won't update Android.

If you see Bezos and Amazon dumping China, dump your Chinese telecom stock. Dump Alibaba and JT Holdings, LLC. And get rid of anything the BRICS nations produce. Watch for China increase in trade w/ Arabic countries.

Hi-stakes Capitalism. China has a cell phone in India for $10. China is set to control Asia and African markets, but have no presence in the Western Hemisphere and that is what is at stake, not our national security, unless it depends in Verizon and Apple.

Another trade war, with one Canadian facing a death sentence in China while Canada holds the Huawei Daughter.

Google is extremely intrusive. If I wasn't so cheap I'd throw my cell phone away and buy an Apple. I'm sick of being tracked 24/7 by Google. I don't like their email system and am sick to death of their relentless obtrusive ads.

I read an article yesterday about AT&T. If you have their TV and phone, they keep track of what you watch, what you Google, comments you make. If you've Googled "trucks," for example, when they see your GPS location has been near a car dealership, they'll shoot you an ad for them.

China is being wrecked as we speak. Huawei is over, done. They have no plan B for their software, app store, and processors all being yanked. China overall never expected Trump to pull out of the UPU either - so that subsidized shipping is over. The only one that will be worst off than the Chinese will be their puppet states - N. Korea and Pakistan. Without US military spending and without Chinese handouts, Pakistan cannot survive. India will probably give you another kicking soon as well given your weakness. Wipe with toilet paper while you can still afford that luxury.

WWII started by arbitrary sanctions.

I think it had more to do with the Germans invading France.

America's involvement in the war officially started with Pearl Harbor, but prior to that, the United States had imposed an increasingly severe set of economic sanctions on Japan. These sanctions interfered with Japan's ability to acquire raw materials for its manufacturing and military. The Roosevelt administration had also begun to side with China in its war against Japan. One can argue whether these moves were justified and whether it was the U.S. or Japan that had been more brazen in its imperialism. But it's pretty clear that sanctions provoked the attack that brought America into WWII. Germany, being an ally of Japan, quickly jumped to its aid and declared war on the U.S.

At some point sanctions can have huge unintended consequences.
