(Photo: SGGP) Facing the same situation are the two other domestic telecoms giants – Viettel and MobiFone.

The move by the EU is a classic shakedown — the money it wants is akin to imposing a foreign tariff on American products. This could cost U.S. shareholders hundreds of billions of dollars . Europe has similar suits against another trillion-dollar American company, Google. So the U.S. government is rushing to defend America’s crown-jewel companies that have added hundreds … [Read more...] about Why isn’t Washington defending American companies from foreign assaults?
