On Friday's Backchat, the US-China trade war. Panasonic , a Japanese Corporation has announced it will suspend component shipments to Huawei, following in the footsteps of Google and others.

Should recent actions by the U.S. in the South China Sea be seen as part of the same strategy? Or American attitudes to events in Hong Kong? Do you agree with comments that there is a real threat of a Cold War, - a battle for global economic, technological and military dominance? Will China fight back, and if so, how?
