China's Official Paper Warns Google Over 'Hacking' Claims [reuters.com]
Google has become a "political tool" vilifying the Chinese government, an official Beijing newspaper said on Monday, warning that the U.S. Internet giant's statements about hacking attacks traced to China could hurt its business.

The tough warning appeared in the overseas edition of the People's Daily, the leading newspaper of China's ruling Communist Party, indicating that political tensions between the United States and China over Internet security could linger.

This sounds very similar to the warnings issued when Google decided to pull out of the mainland China market. It's hard to know if these have any more teeth.

You'll notice that corrupts political parties always use the argument that it is being attacked when facts threaten them, because scaring the population with an external enemy is an easy way to shift attention from them to that external boogeyman. A previous American administration was pretty good at that too.

Was that a disguised threat of some sort? What, is China planning another hacking attack?

China already blocks major foreign social websites such as Facebook and Twitter.


Ya, our goal before the end of this year is to block China (and other countries) from accessing our websites. I've not seen anything of value come from that country or others.

I'd like to share all of my conspiracy theories about China but I'll wait until they happen and I have solid proof. ;)
