"When I say watch, I mean, really watch they had a graphic user interface, and we watch China in particular hop into places like universities, go to companies, and then we watched billions of dollars worth of trade secrets treat, negotiation strategies, intellectual property flow out of the United States. It's what the former head of national security agency. Keith Alexander called the largest transfer of wealth in human history. Yeah. So while watching it was like a credible intelligence feed.

And so in addition to getting the intelligence threats, one of the thing, the director was driving at the time was how do we change our approach? So that we go from watching to disrupting. So what? Do you think of the new threat or perceived threat? And now there are some action being taken against the you know, congr- giant conglomerate telecommunication equipment while way arrest was made in Canada. The concern is that they will if these phones and equipment are bought throughout the west. They can have a hardware in them that sending information back to Chinese state actors. Yeah, there's a couple different reasons why I think you're seeing so much concern by not just the United States government. But it's allies across the world when it comes to while away number one, they were just flouting the law when it came to a sanctions imposed so these the idea here is to keep the proliferation of certain types of technology and weapons out of the hands of states that might use them for bad purposes, right and one of the series of charges, and this is the one that got the CFO arrested in Canada says they were deliberately. Availing those sanctions when it came to Iran number two is theft of trade secrets and so another set of charges. These out of Seattle say they were stealing trade secrets from T mobile actually about a new robot design and number three to your point is this is the same company that setting up the global infrastructure for the world in terms of how devices communicate with each other. So not just it's not just like your phone company where they could listen to your calls, the next technology..
