guanxi writes: Huawei, a large Chinese telecom and IT company with close ties to the Chinese military has faced obstacles doing business in other countries, because governments are concerned about giving Huawei access to critical infrastructure.

Would the Chinese or other governments take the opportunity to create back doors into western IT networks? Wouldn't they be crazy not to?
