Most Canadians don't try to smuggle 220kgs of meth over there either.
Yeah I don't like the death penalty but it's a pretty common penalty for smuggling large amounts of drugs in China. They executed a guy from the UK a few years back for smuggling in a kilo of heroin, not to mention how many of their own citizens get executed for drugs. For 220 kg of meth the death penalty is par for the course and China is far from the only country with this kind of backwards zero tolerance policy.
This guy knew the risks. He was attempting the big dirty, get rich or die trying.
So Hauwei breaks a few international rules and sanctions and China gets pissy about its princess being detained on house arrest in Canada. She's still free, just not to leave the Country. You should really ask why is that so egregious to China and you cant see a difference between that and the Canadians detained in China?
Hauwei exec didnt know the risks or just didnt think they'd be caught? Why does China get a pass? I'm sure you cant defend all of China's military and naval actions - building islands and army bases in the South China Sea and telling the world to fuck off as they re-integrate Taiwan and will not stand for any interference in that matter?
Ya that doesnt sound reminiscent of Anschluss and the Rhineland or anything.
Does Canada have sanctions against Iran as well? If not then this is a bogus extradition we shouldn't have gotten involved in. What Canadian crimes has she been charged with? The Canadians in China all violated Chinese law in China. The minor offenders have all been released while the three who are accused of more serious crimes are obviously still there. Where is the actual statistical indication that China is ramping up pressure on Canadians there? More than 60,000 Canadians are living in China now and in case you didn't notice most white people living in China are assholes or idiots or both most of the time. 11 getting arrested in a month is really not that nuts and if they did the same shit here most of them would still get arrested. Yeah China is tuff on crime but when you're dealing with 1.4 billion people the game changes.
Can you defend the fact that China is literally surrounded by American military bases? Would you like to have a large island off the coast of Canada that Chinese nuclear capable warships could park at it and land and launch planes and missiles and shit or would you possibly lean towards wanting to integrate them into Canada if at all possible, what if all the people there looked like you and spoke English and shit and were what remained of the Chinese funded government that fought our current government for 20 years in a bloody civil war?
