US Says, “No Way, Huawei!”

Serving as the president of any country is a difficult job. Now, when I say ‘difficult,’ I’m not talking about trying to write a ten-page essay the night before it was due, on a book you didn’t read for class and you’re still hungover from last night. While that is impressive, and, I can neither confirm nor deny whether I’ve bested that challenge before, no job in the world can amount to the incredible amount of stress endured as president. President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping of China are two men responsible for leading the world’s leading superpowers, I can only imagine the pressure they are under.

After what has seemed like an unending trade war between the US and China, Trump and Jinping sat down together several days ago and ironed out a 90-day trade truce, resulting in China agreeing to buy $1.2 trillion worth of American products, and America would remain in a holding pattern and not impose any more tariffs on Chinese goods. 

Now, by trade, I am not necessarily a pessimist, but I try to be as realistic as humanly possible. Historically, or at least over the course of the last few years, whenever something positive takes place in the geopolitical arena, almost immediately a headline hits media outlets about a story of some sort of unethical business practice or war crime. In the case of the brief moments of laughter and childlike wonder felt after the US and China agreed to a trade truce, within hours of this deal, Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, was arrested in Canada.

Now, here’s where all of this starts to get interesting.

Canadian officials arrested Ms. Meng, at which time she was immediately “sought for extradition by the United States” according to Ian McLeod, a spokesman for Canada’s Justice Department. 

As for the reasoning behind Ms. Meng’s arrest, Huawei, China’s largest telecom equipment manufacturer, has recently been under investigation for allegations that the company has broken American trade controls on Cuba, Sudan, Iran, and Syria. Huawei has garnered significant successes by tapping into telecom markets in countries around the world, but when the company decided to work with Syria, where American officials had been working to impose limits on technology in an attempt to prevent further human rights abuses, these businesses tactics have resulted in claims that China is purporting these atrocities. Earlier this year, the US Treasury and Commerce Department began investigating Huawei for claims that the company was potentially violating economic sanctions against Iran, according to the New York Times. 

“US law prohibits exports of certain US-origin technologies to certain countries. When Huawei pays to license certain US tech, it promises not to export to certain countries like Iran, So it is not unreasonable for the US to punish Huawei for flouting this US law.”

Julian Ku, Professor, Hofstra University 

Under the guise of threats to national security, President Trump has done everything in his power, while president, to thwart any attempts made by China to threaten the US tech industry. The arrest of a Huawei executive only furthers this point, given that Huawei and several other Chinese telecommunications companies have come dangerously close to beating the US to release devices on 5G wireless networks. Back in March, President Trump convinced US government officials to block Broadcom, a Chinese telecom company, from acquiring its US-based rival Qualcomm (QCOM), suggesting that the deal would pose a significant threat to national security. 

Naturally, a government panel was immediately assembled to investigate these potential national  security risks, specifically the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (Cfius), which then released a letter explaining their concerns on the matter:

“Qualcomm has become well-known to and trusted by, the U.S. government. Reduction in Qualcomm’s long-term technological competitiveness and influence in the standard setting would significantly impact U.S. national security…This is…because a weakling of Qualcomm’s position would leave an opening for China to expand its influence on the 5G standard-setting process. Chinese companies, including Huawei, have increased their engagement…”

Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States Letter 

The degree to which the US, and the Trump administration, is willing to go, in terms of scrutinizing the business operations of Chinese tech companies, only furthers the notion that President Trump feels threatened by China. In terms of the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, I foresee China responding accordingly very shortly.

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
