I couldn't care less about this issue. China's flagrant disregard of IP is partly to blame for this and they've shown zero inclination of changing that. How is it that whenever a foreign company sets up shop in China that some domestic company soon appears with designs and products eerily similar? You can look at almost anything; European bullet trains, Russian fighter jets, American electronics. You name it and all of a sudden there's a "Chinese-developed" product that appears right after. People advocating for Huawei and ZTE need to ask where in the world they "developed" all of the cheap network and telecom gear that they're peddling. Answer: Cisco HQ.
Allowing them to build and install the infrastructure that will be carrying highly sensitive government secrets and blueprints for who-knows-what would be absolutely foolish.
