    Trump declares emergency over IT threats

    He signed an executive order which effectively bars US companies from using foreign telecoms believed to pose national security risks.
    The move was instantly welcomed by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who called it "a significant step toward securing America's networks".

    The US had already restricted federal agencies from using Huawei products and has encouraged allies to shun them, while Australia and New Zealand have both blocked the use of Huawei gear in 5G networks.

    But what may hurt Huawei more is the US decision to put them on the "entity list" - effectively banning American suppliers from selling to the firm.

    Huawei may not need the US market, but it certainly needs the key components that it gets from the US.

    Excellent move...and highly prudent.
    China is trying to take over the world by 2025 (or shortly thereafter).
    And just like the Terminator, they cannot be bargained or reasoned with.

    Stupendous maneuver. I most thoroughly savor it.

    As the old adage goes: if you can't beat 'em, ban 'em.
