    The only thing that makes me more giddy with glee than cats eating humans is when one of those Bulls spears a matador through the chest and stomps on him a few times for good measure. Now THAT'S entertainment. Morons.

    China admits to having agents in Canada as former judge harassed in Toronto

    For more than 15 years, the Chinese government has provoked anger in Canada, Australia, the United States and elsewhere for sneaking security agents abroad on tourist and business visas to strong-arm suspects. Now, Chinese authorities acknowledge they are pressing others to do that work for them, sending non-state actors to apply pressure overseas. As Nathan Vanderklippe writes, Xie Weidong, a former Chinese judge now living in Toronto, has been the target of a lengthy campaign by authorities in China who want him to return home as part of a corruption investigation.

    Shit's going down on the 5G network front ...

    Australia joins U.S. in ban of Huawei from 5G network

    Australia announced that Huawei, which has laid down significant roots in Canada, and fellow Chinese telecom-equipment maker ZTE would be blocked from supplying parts for the development of the country’s future mobile network. 5G is the next stage in cellular technology and will require a massive infrastructure build-out in countries to deliver the faster download speeds promised. But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would not say whether Canada would follow suit with its two major intelligence-sharing allies.

    Huawei, the world’s largest maker of telecommunications-network equipment and the No. 3 smartphone supplier, has already been virtually shut out of the U.S. market because of national-security concerns and effectively banned from its 5G network.

    China’s military scientists target Canadian universities

    Canadian academics have collaborated on dozens of projects withChinese military researchers – some of whom appear to have obscured their defence ties – raising concerns that Canada is inadvertently helping China modernize its armed forces, The Globe and Mail has found. The academic exchanges, jointly advancing technologies such as secure communications, satellite image processing and drones, include the enrolment of Chinese defence scientists as graduate students and visiting scholars at Canadian universities. A Globe survey found that scholars with at least nine Canadian institutions have conducted research in partnership with Chinese military scholars

    This week the United States made 2 big moves against China in response to Beijing's alleged government-orchestrated theft of intellectual property. Experts believe there will be more U.S. measures to come.

    Why it matters: This is a sea change in how Washington deals with China. China is thought to have stolen billions of dollars in intellectual property from U.S. firms over more than a decade through hacking and human sources. The U.S. has never gone all-in on retaliation.

    What they're saying:"China is surprised. They never thought we would wake up and push back," said James Lewis, who formerly led the Commerce Department's effort to fight Chinese espionage in the tech industry.

    The 2 big U.S. moves:

    These aren't isolated actions.

    The big picture: U.S. experts charge that China has hacked into U.S. companies to steal anything and everything that could build up its tech industry without having to spend money on research and development.

    • Micron, the U.S. competitor to Fujian Jinhua, has long complained about theft by that firm.
    • Obama's Justice Department did indict a handful of Chinese hackers and developed an agreement with Bejing that economic espionage would be out of bounds, but China stopped abiding by the deal after Obama left office.
    • The posture dating back to the George W. Bush administration has largely been to treat China as more of an inconvenience than a threat.
    "Preventing more theft has to be an all-in strategy. For the past 15 years, our strategy has been to ask 'pretty please.' It's time to try something else," said Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder of CrowdStrike, a security firm that companies often bring in to keep China out.

    • CrowdStrike has seen a steady uptick in Chinese economic espionage since January.
    The prognosis: Alperovitch, who has seen the ebbs and flows of Chinese hacking after past attempts to curtail it, does not think that the U.S. moves, even combined with the broader trade war, will be enough to throw Beijing off balance.

    • Lewis, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, sees "endless opportunities" for future embargoes and charges if the administration is committed to confronting China.
    • But he also questions whether the Trump administration will know how to play a strong hand. Just a few months ago, when the Department of Commerce placed severe sanctions on telecom equipment maker ZTE, Trump softened the penalty without getting Chinese concessions in return.
    The White House isn't out from under ZTE's shadow, even with these actions.

    Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), a hawk during the ZTE dust-up, called the indictments "a step in the right direction" but pointed to the ZTE "sweetheart deal" as a sign that the Trump administration might not effectively hold China accountable

    Canadian officials arrested Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou for allegedly violating U.S. sanctions with Iran. Meng, who is also the daughter of the company's founder, may now face extradition to the U.S.; a hearing is set for Friday. The news raises fresh doubts over a 90-day trade truce struck between President Trump and Xi Jinping, feeding fears of a fresh flare-up in tensions between the world's two largest economies.

    Canada prepared for possible Chinese cyber retaliation over arrest of top Huawei executive

    The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security is prepared for possible Chinese cyberattacks in retaliation for the arrest of Huawei Technologies’s chief financial officer in Canada, according to director Scott Jones, Robert Fife and Steven Chase write.

    Meng Wanzhou was picked up by Canadian law-enforcement officials in transit at Vancouver Airport Dec. 1. U.S. authorities requested her arrest and extradition on suspicion she violated U.S. trade sanctions against Iran. (Here’s how extradition to the United States works.)

    China has lashed out at Canada, saying the detainment has “violated her human rights,” Nathan VanderKlippe writes, and demands her immediate release. Here’s what we know about Ms. Meng, daughter of the multinational telecom company’s founder, Ren Zhengfei.

    The arrest comes as Canada is under intense pressure from the U.S. to bar Huawei from participating in next-generation 5G mobile networks. (for subscribers)

    “The close relationship between Huawei and a Chinese government with a history of cyberespionage should be worrisome,” argue Richard Fadden and Brian Lee Crowley. “Add the fact that China’s 2017 National Intelligence Law gives Beijing the power to compel Huawei’s support for its intelligence work, and the red flags become too numerous to ignore.”

    Wenran Jiang advises: “All sides should take a deep breath right now and tread carefully before things snowball out of control, doing permanent damage to a delicate Canada-China-U.S. relationship.”
