Gotcha - sorry, I didn't mean for that to come across as condescending or anything. I legitimately didn't understand what you were getting at.

I am still unsure if this is a smart move. I don't see how this is going to help anyone or solve anything. If the company did indeed break the law with respect to sanctions or an embargo, the USA is still going to have to prove in a court of law that she was complicit in the decision to go against those laws and sell to that country anyway. That's a tough bar to get over. Someone better have some seriously legit proof of something, or we just seriously pissed of China for no reason whatsoever.

Irrespective of all that - sanctions and embargo's are still useless and it is silly we use them anyway.
