"The big fear with local lawmakers and regulators is that Huawei's networking products will have secret backdoors built in so that Chinese officials can spy on Americans."

This implies that US equipment company may have created backdoor on their products in other countries. The lawmakers and regulators may reason like, if we can and do it, why not they? I'm not saying US is in err, but simply analyze the possible reality. International politics is becoming even more brutal than domestic infighting. Even scarier, since this time, most likely the consequences will be unprecedented one.

Well, why should we worry about trusting them when we can't even trust our own government ?

in other words, Cisco's networking products will have secret backdoors built in so that NSA can spy on the World.

so let me get this straight...
Huawei come in with what appear to be quite good products
big companies in America don't like that so they bang on about Huawei and the Chinese government and backdoors (although I could just say NSA and backdoors to be honest) the result being Huawei backing out
over here in England we have this thing called the competition commission that attempts to stop this stuff...

^^ They are still selling products here just not infrastructure equipment, which would lower line costs, and we can't have that.

All this spying makes the salutation 'Dear Sirs,' take on a whole new meaning.

Well i actually think that Chinese government did criticized Huawei to pull back from US.because if they destroy uncompetitive American firms how will Americans pay back debt to Chinese? The back door garden story is just cover up. Truth is Chinese don't need weapons to defeat Americans it's in off for them to kindly ask for they money back bat this would actually break world economy so it's not going to happen.

Anyone that has studied that Communist Party of China (CPC) knows that they generally, as a rule, have CPC members appointed to key positions in all of the major companies in China. This is how they maintain control while still reaping the benefits of their brand of capitalism. The CPC has the legal ability to fire/appoint personnel in any company in China and there is a documented history of them frequently doing this, especially in the telecom industry.

This level of control is why other countries are wary of allowing China to compete in the their domestic markets. It's one thing if a foreign private company has a presence in your country. It is quite another when the company is controlled by a foreign country that is basically run by a dictatorship. China also has a history of heavily subsidizing their companies so they can overwhelm the competition. They do this a lot in China and it is hard to believe that they won't do the same in other countries. And good luck trying to fight China at the WTO. Just look at how hard it has been for anyone to beat the US in a trade dispute.

For a good overview of the CPC and their policies I recommend Richard McGregor's "The Party: The Secret World of China's Communist Rulers".

the american government is jealous.
if Huawei establishes a presence here in america the american government will either have to share the back doors with Chinese government

or the american government will have no back door but china will be the only one with a way in.

The hazard is not from Huawei but from internal organizations like NSA, et al. Huawei would not want to wreck their main source of revenue because even when there is no mischief on their part, certain quarters are keen to invent some so as to damage their business.

I read Hawaii, giving the headline a whole new meaning!
