Times, 29 March 2009, Spy chiefs fear Chinese cyber attack, http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article5993156.ece :

"... equipment installed by Huawei, the Chinese telecoms giant, in BT's new communications network could be used to halt critical services such as power, food and water supplies ..."

Catchy 22

The Indian government is paying the PRC to have the PLA confirm that it's spy kit laden switchery is not so spy-laden.

And of course, no one, save for those dastardly Chinese,

would ever, ever dream of installing covert listening software on kit sold to foreign nations. Never, never, never !...

Slap yourselves upside the head, once more, laddies !...

WTF?

Yet Again more racism

The old chesnuts keep coming out. US senate were upset that a chinese company wanted to buy 3COM and the old farts at the MOD quoted (Spy Chiefs) as feariing chinese spy war. Load of old tosh.

Huawei have invited the US Senate to investigate their links with the chinese government.
