There is a long history of difficulty in doing business with China. Read your history books, particularly those not edited by liberati. Current economic dealings with China are approaching ordinary trade, yet there is still the ideological differences to be considered. Personally, I don't think google knew what they were getting into as China's ideology is so diametrically opposed to google's mission.
