China Threatens Canada With 'Grave Consequences' If Huawei CFO Not Freed

Submitted by: daegog 1 month ago in Misc News & Politics



Question:  If China sent in a military strike team to break this woman out of jail, what would Canada do?  There are almost certainly plans in place should the decision to do so be made.

Per the Guardian


China has warned Canada there would be severe consequences if it did not immediately release Huawei’s chief financial officer, calling the case “extremely nasty”.

Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada on 1 December and faces extradition to the United States, which alleges that she covered up her company’s links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite sanctions.

The executive is the daughter of Huawei’s founder.

If extradited to the US, Meng would face charges of conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions, a Canadian court heard on Friday, with a maximum sentence of 30 years for each charge.

No decision was reached at the extradition hearing after nearly six hours of arguments and counter-arguments, and the hearing was adjourned until Monday.

Don't worry, the leader of China is an unyielding marxist atheist, and you know how unyielding marxist atheists get: winy, desperate, assertive, full of superiority complex, puffed up with pride and arrogance, but ultimately ridiculous and stupid and devoid of any sound reasoning.

monkwarrior I don't think those characteristics are limited to that field of thought. Indeed, they pre-date them by a very long way.

Canada is following the rule of law. If they knuckle under to the demands of a foriegn dictator they have passed that rule of law over. I do not think that will happen.

Apart from anything else, prison videos have taught me that if you roll over at a threat you will always be a punk.

I'm sure a 1000% trade tariffs on all Goods going to and from China to Canada may may upset a few things. Or perhaps trying to just cut all trade. Trudeau picked up an opponent to get into a pissing contest with.

dm2754 Way to root for the bad guy. Not much surprise here. God forbid a country tries to step up and do the right thing. Right-wingers said the same garbage when Canada stood up to Saudi Arabia too. You guys really love dictators and despots these days. Whatever Papa Trump tells you to love or hate.

dm2754 todd_dirks asked you a question. You responded with grotesquely insulting bullshit. If you can't answer the question, don't answer the question. No one is impressed by your foolishness.
Two acceptable answers to a yes/no question are "yes" and "no".

LordJim what are you talking about? How I respond to harassment? It was very interesting how that all turned out.
Besides am I wrong? If someone goes through that much trouble to attract my attention there's got to be something wrong with them

How has it reached the point that Canada has acceded to a legitimate US request, is following the rule of law and applying due process but can't be sure that the US has its back? 

I think it was Merkle who first made it explicit that for the duration of the current administration the US should be seen as an unreliable ally.

I want to ask you a question. I am not being judgmental, and a simple "yes" or "no" will suffice.

Do you know what an extradition treaty is?

piperfawn Nope.  Canada has applied its laws, and the international treaties it has signed on to.  After a judicial review of the charges, bail has been set at $7.5M and the order that the defendant not leave the province.  the value of the bail has been set to match the flight risk. This is nothing new.

wellsy57 My guess is he and his followers will side with the Dictator or Despot. History has shown he always sides with the regimes that the right wing morons used to hate. But they just do whatever Papa Trump tells them to do anyway.

"Papa Trump, should I like this dictator that burns Christians at the stake?"
"Yes my child."
