Huawei on List of 20 Chinese Companies That Pentagon Says Are Controlled by People’s Liberation Army:

The Pentagon put Huawei Technologies and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology on a list of 20 companies it says are owned or controlled by China's military, opening them up to potential additional U.S. sanctions.

In letters to lawmakers dated June 24, the Pentagon said it was providing a list of "Communist Chinese military companies operating in the United States." The list was first requested in the fiscal 1999 defense policy law.

This list includes "entities owned by, controlled by, or affiliated with China's government, military, or defense industry," Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement.

[...] The companies on the list are:

Aviation Industry Corporation of China
China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation
China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation
China Electronics Technology Group Corporation
China South Industries Group Corporation
China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation
China State Shipbuilding Corporation
China North Industries Group Corporation
Huawei Technologies Co.
Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co.
Inspur Group; Aero Engine Corporation of China
China Railway Construction Corporation
CRRC Corp.; Panda Electronics Group
Dawning Information Industry Co.
China Mobile Communications Group
China General Nuclear Power Corp.
China National Nuclear Power Corp.
China Telecommunications Corp.

Given how inter-connected the world is, how practical would it be to avoid all such Chinese companies?

    Are you suggesting that political power grows from the barrel of a gun? Hmmm - sounds familiar - who said that before you did?

    Political power grows from economic circumstances... Watered by the blood of whomever is on the other side of the barrel... Fertilized by the ideology of choice... Pruned by ongoing geopolitical stresses... [apply Scottish accent] Brushed by the winds of change... Led by rational and shined on by the light of God / Gods / Lucifer / Demons / Spaghetti Monsters... Accounted by the celestial bureaucracy / the Church in Rome / Jesus in each and every one of our hearts / the Emperor / God...

    Probably short of a few car analogies?

      That economic power is how they afford the guns they need to take political power.
