Re: Huawei should pause everything
There's a lot of momentum built up around China and Cold War. Trump may have started the ball rolling but there are plenty of people to keep it going and not enough adults to stop it.
What might bring things to a halt is that these bans are negatively affecting US businesses. They're using both lobbying and lawsuits to get their voices heard. The justification for these bans is in the interpretation of hasily drawn up legislation enacted post-9/11 and is really an abuse of power.
My guess is that China will just quietly build up the missing bits of the business and carry on doing what they do. Don't forget that "Huawei", the name itself, translates (Wikipedia) to "Splendid Achievement" or "Chinese Achievement". Its not a matter of business, its national honor, and the Chinese have shown time and again that when it comes to a choice between national honor and extra dollars they'll choose honor every time. So we're suck in a war we can't win and they won't lose with the only way out being for us to give up and stop harassing them or to just start an all out war (don't discount that -- it won't be the first time).
Incidentally, I have a Honor 9X phone. Its not really a 'youth oriented' phone, its more 'a cheap phone that's outstanding value for money' (so its only youth orientation is cost). Think of it as a half price Apple SE with a better camera and larger battery.
