Does this mean we won't have to endure all their advertising on Hockey Night In Canada for much longer?

The cops should use the P20 Pro phone to take a picture of Meng as a mugshot.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese did it. They are known for making people disappear. If this Meng person was arrested in secret, that would have surprised me though.

There is a lot I vehemently dislike about Trump -- but his China policy isn't one of them. On one hand, he just dined with Emperor Xi at the G20, and signed a "truce" with China on their trade wars -- never mind the fact that it was really far more of a Chinese surrender than a real truce. And then today, news of the Huawei CFO, the daughter of the Huawei founder, gets her a$$ arrested in Canada, with plans for extradition to the US.

Well played, Donald. Well played.

How is it a surrender by the Chinese? A truce works out well for them because they only have to wait two more years for a new president to end the tariffs.

To put it into perspective, she was arrested last Saturday, basically when the dinner was taking place.

It's almost funny that China is getting a taste of its own medicine. Just a few weeks back, China arrested families (who are US citizens) of ex Chinese officials who were fled while being alleged of corruption in an effort to force him to return to China. Even further back, China arrested (more like kidnap because reports suggested he was brought back to China from HK) the owner of a HK publisher (who's dual Swedish/HK citizen IIRC) because they were about to publish a book about Xi's affairs.

China has always been ruthless when it comes to this and couldn't care less about complains from other countries. It's comical seeing that Chinese Embassy in Ottawa issuing a statement.

Chinese media are downplaying the terms. But let's be honest... all US gave was 90days (60 if counting from the original date of 01/01/2019 for tariff to increase) so China can work its shit out.

China had to commit to make "significant" purchases from US to balance the trade deficit, greenlight Qualcomm-NXP deal should Qualcomm would like to pursuit again and fentanyl classification... all this so US agrees to extend it for 60days.

If this is just a truce, then I can't imagine what China has in store if it were to commit for a deal.

While Meng has obtained a publication ban regarding her arrest, SCMP (in HK) mentioned that she has also said:

http://www.scmp.com/tech/article/217...ay-accept-risk

Quote:
after a reasonable decision-making process, one may accept the risk of temporary non-compliance
Patrick Ho has very recently been found guilty of 7 out of 8 charges in his US bribery case toward some African country (Chad?), and faces a maximum of 65 years in prison. Based on what us commoners can see at this point, if the US wants to pin Meng down with some sort of guilty verdict, she is as good as dead.
