Singapore has named two carriers as having won the right to build nationwide 5G networks, and both promptly named tech providers other than Huawei as their network providers of choice. The winners of the nationwide 5G licences were Singtel and a joint venture between locals StarHub and M1 Limited. The former named Ericsson as …

      The difference being that Jewish merchants back then weren't involved in the sort of shady practices that China undoubtedly is now.

        Yes, the Jews are evil. I get it. They're involved in all sorts of evildoing.

        Huawei is owned by the people working for it. This clearly has to be the devil.

          And "own" is quite different from "control".

            You might have been the victim of an overflow there. I suggest switching to 64-bit. ;-)

      Sorry, in your brain, which out of China and the tiny state of Singapore are the Nazis? It looks like you think it's Singapore. (Hint: it's the one that puts a religious minority in concentration camps, and engages in medical experiments/organ harvesting on prisoners.)

        See above. Nazis: USA.

        You don't seriously want to insinuate that this was Singapore's idea to begin with?!?

          "You don't seriously want to insinuate that this was Singapore's idea to begin with?!?"

          Well, it could be a reaction to China's recent founding of two new adminstrative regions to control the South China Sea, and suggestions it will implement an ADIZ there. Singapore, along with more or less everyone in the world, but particularly those bordering the nine dash line, are none too chuffed with having their coast taken off them.

          Or it could be the US. Yes, the US could be secretly controlling the world's governments, even those that have strong relations with China.

                  The problem with the "US using financial muscle" on Huawei is that the US is rapidly running out of financial muscle. This may not be apparent to anyone who lives outside the US, to many we look as if we have infinite money, but the inside view is very different. The current Administration may go around flashing cash at all and sundry but the only place they can get it from is from lenders, they're borrowing agianst 'We, the People's ability to pay the interest.

                  All Huawei is doing wrong is producing highly competitive products. We walked away from the infrastructure market (leading to a lot of redundancies among the workforce) because it didn't make enough money for Wall Street. Now we realize that this stuff is important, we really need to have a capability, but we've not only given away the farm but sacked all the farmhands. All we're left with is trying to pour weedkiller on a successful neighbor's plot.
