    Spy scandal weighs on U.S. tech firms in China, Cisco takes hit | Reuters

    Brazilian and German sales are also way below expectations for a bevy of US tech companies.

    Snowden - the gift that keeps on giving.

    Given the blatant discrimination Huawei has faced in the US, it is sweet, poetic justice to see Cisco get its ass handed to it for the same reasons across the world.

    I would buy Cisco now expecting price to rise again.

    Your gloating seems petty, against a background in your country of forced labor and mass forced abortions.

    In fact almost all of your posts seem to be a desperate attempt to distract from the realities of life in China by constantly pointing to the missteps of those in other countries.

    But you do a good job for The Party.

    I hope India will learn a lesson from this that stop using Chinese and American tel and other communication equipments and will also stay away from American military hardware on important areas, we should stay way from using American equipment and weapons unless there is no comparable options in that class.

    If China or any country wishes to be really safe from clandestine spying by foreign origin manufacturers, then such a country should not take the assistance of foreign industrial organisations or allow them to sell within their country.

    Any items manufactured can always have a bug.

    Even an innocuous item like a watch, pen, ball point pen, lipsticks, bags or anything can always have a bug.

    China should do well to ban foreign manufacturers and foreign goods for their own safety, if they are really worried seriously about this threat, more so, since in China it is believed that the US is hell bent to destabilise the country and its political and social systems!

    Fortunately, in India that type of paranoia is yet to set in.

    CSCO has dropped 12% so far. Hope you haven't used your retirement fund to buy Cisco.

    Given Ewald's background in Army Intelligence, I wouldn't be surprised if insider trading regulations barred him from buying or selling Cisco stock.

    If US companies in China sink, would it not also make the Chinese economy sink?

    And the labour who will be cast off to cut corners, not get restive causing social, political and law and order disorders?

    So its OKAY for the US Intelligence community to be storing basically all the communications data of every internet user on the globe?

    Sure t_co is having a field day with it, but even you have to admit that the statistics are quite stagering... And all of it done in SECRET, with no judicial oversight apart from a rubberstamping SECRET court.

    Then Obama promises reforms, but lo and behold when Feinstein proposes them, a closer look reveals they are fake and basicaly LEGALIZE the illegalities revealed by Snowden.

    Put it anyway you want, but all the high and mighty talk from the US intelligence chiefs on HUAWEI was actually just killing off the competition. To use now famous corporate media signiture spin "everyone spies", what they leave out is: only the US spies on everyone.

    Forget MSNBC and foxnews and look up glenn greenwald's work if you want any credible dissemination of Snowden's revelations. Things like Xkeyscore.

    The guy gave up his livelihood and family - basically his whole life - for no actual material benefit, so the average american would know what your government does in secret. The least you could do is look through the info before you let millionaire corporate media hosts and Dick Cheney - the guy responsible for Iraq - convince you he's a traitor.
