Security risks from Huawei? What about national security risks from Microsoft/Intel/Cisco/Google/Facebook to the other countries in the world? It is simple: don't buy from Huawei, buy from Cisco. Remember Toyota's accelerator pedal.

Maybe the security concerns will be revealed and justified, one day. But if it turns out not to be the case, then these actions that Huawei needed to take (as an enterprise invested in its survival) will just add to the reverse brain drain (out of the US) that has become noticeable lately.

Personally, I think it's ridiculous that the government is using espionage as an excuse to lock out Huawei. Smells of antitrust and U.S. corporate lobbying to me.

The US and Aussie concern over security has cost many well educated American citizens the opportunity to positively contribute to their local tech environments. Issues like spying are always a potential concern, but what about issues like unemployed engineers turning to desperate situations because of lack of work (or relevant work).
