    1. LONDON, June 7 (Reuters) - A senior Huawei official will face questions from British lawmakers next week amid an ongoing furore over the role it should play in next-generation 5G telecom networks, parliament said on Friday.

    2. The logic of going straight for Huawei's 5G technology is clear and simple. As an analogy, let us go back to the period between 6000 BCE and 2500 BCE (the transition out of the Stone Age) when, for example, a trader was trying to sell his newfound technique of smelting ore to a group of Stone Age men.

    As with Huawei, the logic of the option for the Stone Age people to improve their lives with metallurgy was clear and simple. If there was any danger in opting for the new technology, it was whether the Stone Age men used it for forging blades to slaughter their own kind in a war instead of making cutlery for cutting food.

    3. Russia's recent Huawei deal should set off alarm bells for the US and its so-called allies whom it brazenly spies. Russia should know very well that its space exploration, weapon programme, internet superiority and economy would get a big boost from Huawei 5G technology. When a golden opportunity presents itself, sharp-eyed Russia seldom misses it.

    For instance, during World War II the Japanese developed the Dalian, Anshan, Fushun, Shenyang, and Harbin areas into a huge industrial complex of metallurgical, coal, petroleum, and chemical industries. Soviet forces, which occupied the areas from July, 1945, to May, 1946, dismantled and removed over half of the industrial complex.

    If anyone were to tell Russia any craps about Huawei spying, "the Titan of Spying and Hacking" may respond jokingly: "What spying? If I don't spy or hack your country, you are damn lucky!"

    While the Cossack races ahead on his "Huawei 5G horse", the US and its so-called allies are still mired in the craps about Huawei spying.

    4. It took many centuries for the four great inventions of Ancient China (paper making, gunpowder, printing technique and compass) to reach Europe. For instance, the first papermaking process was documented in China during the Eastern Han period (25–220 CE), traditionally attributed to the court official Cai Lun. However, it took a long time (11th century) for paper making to be introduced to Europe by the Arabs.

    By hindsight, China should have kept the Huawei 5G technology for its own superiority and dominance just like what it did with its four great inventions in ancient times. Henceforth through the Huawei lesson, China should be wise enough to keep any new discovery or invention as top state secret.

    So by mistake, China has given a gift to the world. It won't be a gift any longer due to soaring rare earth prices. Time for Western Europe and the US in the 5G race is fast running out. :)
