    Better yet, why don't we block the import of all Chinese computer equipment. Then we could start building our own and reopen some of the closed electronics plants that had all their work shipped overseas. If the big companies like Apple don't like it, they can leave. Wouldn't be much loss since the jobs already have.

    This has been a problem for a long time. However, why worry about China using backdoors in hardware when CALEA is in effect in the U.S? (which, by the way, has a worldwide effect and is not just another "U.S problem") It's a bit of a pot meet kettle situation.

    I don't see them being banned however, for the same reason companies like FoxConn continue to be used even though regular issues of worker violations and quality control situations pop up. China is a major business partner of many nations and let's face it, they're cheap.

    Calling attention to it now is simply a political move for the upcoming elections. The risk has been known for some time and, again, when the U.S is doing it too under CALEA it looks a little silly to say the least to call out China on it.
