#5 She's terrified of dogs. It's said that each time she meets Vlad he makes sure there's a pooch in the house-- usually a big aggressive one.

#9 I just don't know what to think here. A bunch of thoughts:

* Some "allies".

* Germany despises buying American so much they're willing to buy Huawei just to give us a big "fuck you".

* The US intelligence community wants their backdoored equipment installed in Europe so as to keep an eye on things. Seeing them lose can only be a good thing.

* Europe is so anti-innovation that they can't make their own 5G equipment.

* It's time to disband NATO. Europeans obviously don't think that foreign threats are serious, so why are we even there? Why are we financially ruining ourselves to protect against phantom threats?

#11 Ericsson (based in Sweden, so nominally European) makes 5G gear. In collaboration with Huawei. In India. And, yeah, it's about the economics of it.

#12 Dummkopf.

Also raised in an unorthodox communist family and fed an anti-Western, totalitarian and theocratic ideology.

Last week Commissioner Julian King warned that buying 5G "is not like buying a car, but joining a club".

It's more like letting a notorious ghost hacker implant a cyberbrain into the national IT infrastructure,
