Trump admin may ban some brands of cameras...

Post by alabamatoy » Thu May 23, 2019 12:17 pm

From Slashdot this AM:
An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNBC:
The U.S. administration is considering limits to Chinese video surveillance firm Hikvision's ability to buy U.S. technology, the New York Times reported on Tuesday, in a move that deepens worries about trade frictions between the world's two top economies. The move would effectively place Hikvision on a U.S. blacklist and U.S. companies may have to obtain government approval to supply components to Hikvision, the paper said. The U.S. Commerce Department blocked Huawei Technologies from buying U.S. goods last week, effectively banning U.S. companies from doing business with the Chinese firm, a major escalation in the trade war, saying Huawei was involved in activities contrary to national security.

Hikvision and Dahua Technology which produce audio-visual equipment that can be used for surveillance were specifically cited in a letter to Trump's top advisers last month, signed by more than 40 lawmakers. The lawmakers said China's actions in its western region of Xinjiang "may constitute crimes against humanity" and urged tighter U.S. export controls to ensure that U.S. companies are not assisting the Chinese government's crackdown there.

The issue stems around the facilities in China that "U.N. experts describe as mass detention centers holding more than 1 million ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims," reports CNBC. "Beijing has said its measures in Xinjiang, which are also reported to include widespread surveillance of the population, are aimed at stemming the threat of Islamist militancy. The facilities or camps that have opened are vocational training centers, the government has said."

america, even today, is guilty of crimes against humanity. does that mean no one is allowed to sell anything to each other? even if they are made within the borders?

honestly if they are banning any country’s products because of crimes against humanity then america should stop giving all their tax dollars to israel. they literally use their money to steal from the indigenous. they pay other countries to help facilitate it.

many indian scam call centres are actually run by israelis. they are a product of american decision making.

unless you want to blame the british. without them there may have never been so many crimes against humanity. Many of us wouldn’t know what a thief or impoverished person looks like if they never brought their “peace”.

“the sun never sets on the british empire because not even god trusts them in the dark.”

use logic, be dominated, or perish.
