1.  The fortune of Huawei takes a deep plunge after the detention of its CFO in Canada on December 1 last year.  More and more countries, under the pressure of the US, ban the use of its 5G components on allegation that the company is spying for China.

In the latest development, US Senator Tom Cotton even threatened the Huawei CFO with the death penalty:  "“Huawei is effectively an intelligence-gathering arm of the Chinese Communist Party whose founder and CEO was an engineer for the People’s Liberation Army.  If Chinese telecom companies like Huawei violate our sanctions or export control laws, they should receive nothing less than the death penalty - which this denial order would provide.”

2.  So far the detention of the Huawei CFO has become a diplomatic spat between China and Canada.  Now it should be obvious which country is the mastermind behind the detention, and is bent on wrecking the Chinese economy.

By now, China should start taking action to aim at that country with full blast in its counterattack.

3.  Here I coin the term "trudeau" (taken from the name of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Pierre James Trudeau) as a verb to mean the following:

(a)  Focus on a wrong target

(b)  Pay attention to trivial issues instead of the crux of the matter.

(c)  Can't see the forest for the trees, that is, focus only on small details and fail to understand larger plans or principles.

4.  Here are some examples of the use of the new term:

(i)  See what you have been trudeauing, you have been taking a long time just to take a photograph of my chest instead of my face.

(ii)  The police inspector scolded his staff:  "What a fool you are!  Instead of going after the mafia boss, you trudeau by bringing back this petty thief.

(iii)  Why are you hitting the cobra's tail?  Don't trudeau! Hit the head!  Quick!

(iv)  Instead of solving the country's urgent economic problems, the president wastes his time trudeauing on getting fund for building the wall.

(v)  They trudeau the whole morning arguing about petty cash and overlooking the budge in the meeting.

P.S.  Past tense and past participle of the verb "trudeau are still "trudeau".

Donald Trump's infamous Hitler-style rabble-rousing chants:  "Lock her up!  Lock her up!"

Actually it is not so bad.

From details offered by Ren Zhen-fei (Huawei's CEO) in his recent interview with Central Television, Huawei's sales volume is projected to grow at least 20% this year.

Remember that the so-called West is not a monolithic colossus.  It's leaders come and go according to the whims of the electorate.  A NO today doesn't preclude a YES tomorrow.

When railway was first seen in China, the Qing government disallowed its construction in Southwest China, and the old Empress Dowager approved only a mile of railway for her entertainment in Beijing.

And history tells us what happened to a retrogressive China that tried to go against the Megatrend -- she was defeated in important battle engagements and her transportation system was almost non-existent.

Then witness the growth of the High-Speed-Railway system in China today, which has irreversibly propelled China to the forefront of transportation hubs in the world, contributing immeasurably to it GDP growth.

That's why I am not so worried about the continued survival of Huawei.  It is those countries that have continued to ban Huawei's 5G infrastructural construction that need to be worried.

Huawei will stay and thrive, while those Western nations will miss the boat bigtime and will have to dish out heavy penalties in the future when they try to return to Huawei's platform.

U.S. senators are noted for their demagoguery skills -- telling their electorates what they want to hear.  They aren't noted for their intelligence.

This Tom Cotton might very well be a descendant of a cotton picker who doesn't know anything better than supplying night soil for growing cotton.

His suggestion of a 'death penalty' for Meng would act as a boomerang so that any future trips made by any senior U.S. official would be a hazardous journey.  

The reason you don't see or hear any president or leader of any nation being threatened with violence in their globetrotting trips is not just due to tight security, but also because there is this unspoken threat of reciprocity -- it's sort of like the MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) in the field of nuclear defense.

I don't think they will ever dare to move a finger against Meng if she is actually extradited to the U.S.

There is also another school of thought -- that we might want to exchange Meng with that drug convict sentenced to die by the Liaoning Court.  The two cases are as different as pineapples and heroin.  

One is obviously a case of high-tech blackmail and the other a case of criminal felony.

If it is approved there will then be other Mengs that the Five-eye nations will seize during their transit stopovers in hopes of exchanging future drug lords pushing drugs in China.

The only effective solution to preempt this possibility is to give the convicted drug ringleader his lethal shot as soon as possible to emphasize the fact that there is no link between the two.

The West understands only strength.

When China was much weaker during the Korean and Vietnamese Wars, our leaders never hesitated to send in PLA soldiers to fight in those two countries, and when the Chinese naval forces were still relatively primitive compared to the U.S. navy, our leaders did not hesitate to safeguard the nation's honor by sending in speedboats against their much large warships.

What do we have to fear except fear itself in countering the threats of the imbeciles in the American Congress who cannot even keep their own toilets open for business in the congressional chamber for the presidential State of the Union address?

That was manifest a long time ago, and didn't happen just yesterday.  Our side has been very patient because we believed the lies from the mouth of a real-estate businessman.

That's why I opposed Chinese leaders going to Buenos Aires for the G20 Summit.  That merely gave Trump and his criminally minded advisors a chance to observe our top leader at close quarters -- an opportunity that they didn't have as mere negotiators.  That's why Trump was the one who called him up and said, "Let's have a meeting."  

Once they had that meeting where each and every one of his trade talk advisors had a chance to size him up at close quarters -- on the same day that Meng was arrested -- they were able to reach a consensus in deciding how to deal with him.

By that time the Pentagon had already devised a strategy putting China within its rang-finder as its Number One Enemy.

To this day we haven't given up our sincere and generous thoughts about sharing a prosperous future and conducting mutually beneficial business deals.

We are acting as if they don't know what we are offering is sincere and workable.

Beijing still doesn't understand that Trump and his gang do not want to share anything with China.  They want everything for themselves and [buNOT win-win results.

When the other side treat you as enemies, and you still cling to the idea that they can be persuaded to come back to the negotiation table for win-win talks you are merely cheating yourself.


That's why strategic patience is obsolescent and the next phase of the struggle is fast approaching.

AS Chairman Mao had said, "Throw away your fantasies and prepare for struggles."

And making fun of the Canadian PM when you have someone who looks like he has down syndrome as your dear leader for life.
