Chinese have a long track record of helping the Islamist fascists –“reformers” and all- to suppress freedom, particularly in internet, and have electronic tracking ability against dissidents in Iran.
Many Iranian freedom seekers are rotting in dungeons due to Chinese electronic help the fascists get.
Lets hope the sane world will issue a cease and desist order to the CCC, Capitalist Chinese Communists.
“The United States is imposing export restrictions on China's ZTE Corp and three other entities over an alleged scheme developed by the telecoms equipment maker to re-export controlled items to Iran, contrary to U.S. law, according to a U.S. notice on Monday.”
Above is one of the series of blogs, for example here and here, on China’s ZTE posted two years ago. latest news:
“The U.S. Department of Commerce is banning American companies from selling components to leading Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE for seven years for violating the terms of a sanctions violation case, U.S. officials said on Monday.
The Chinese company, a top smartphone seller in the United States, pleaded guilty last year in federal court in Texas for conspiring to violate U.S. sanctions by illegally shipping U.S. goods and technology to Iran. It paid $890 million in fines and penalties, with an additional penalty of $300 million that could be imposed.
Douglas Jacobson, an exports control lawyer who represents suppliers to ZTE, called the ban highly unusual and said it would severely affect the company.
"This will be devastating to the company, given their reliance on U.S. products and software," said Jacobson. "It's certainly going to make it very difficult for them to produce and will have a potentially significant short and long-term negative impact on the company."
"This is going to tank their stock," Jacobson added.”
There has to be a price for making money soaked with the blood of victims of tyrannies like the unreformable, expansionist and warmongering Islamist fascism in Iran. Lets hope as Jacobson predicts, ZTE’s stock tanks.
Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
