On the other hand...

"There are no compelling reasons that I can see to do business with the Chinese, so long as they have the structure in place to reach in and manipulate or spy on their customers. Those who are charging ahead blindly and embracing the Chinese technology without regard to these concerns may find themselves in a disadvantage in dealing with us."

I suppose they should be using Cisco or HP kit, which has been proven that the CIA/NSA has intercepted the latter's hardware and installed spyware in router and switch firmware and the former has patched a few dozen backdoors over the last year.

So, buy from US firms, where it is known that they have been manipulated in the past, or from a Chinese company that the US has alleged does the same thing, but can't provide any proof... Hmm, hard decision.
