I am in the Middle East right now for a few days and could not log in Google Adsense. Here is the following message I get.

I always knew Google is US Government Owned...

"Msg" :

Unable to access AdSense homepage

A connection has been established between your current IP address and a country sanctioned by the U.S. government (for more information, see [ustreas.gov...] ).

We're unable to grant you access to the AdSense homepage at this time.

B.S.!

The US Govt does not allow trade with certain countries. If you are a member of the "press" you should know this.

Never mind, stick around for 25 - 50 years and things will surely improve, perhaps, possibly, maybe.

Whaa? A company needs to follow the law of the country they operate in. It doesn't mean they're owned by the government.

LOL probably/perhaps a restriction due to the SSL encryption and the associated export regulations pertaining thereto.

"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none."
Thomas Jefferson

A very wonderful man who featured quite prominently in my late 1960's reading of John Kennedy's "Profiles in Courage".

Changed his life, his thinking and also mine.

FWIW

It is not the SSL technology restriction: that prevents supplying software, not making connections.

This is the "you cannot trade with them at all" restriction.

As much as we'd like to think we're smarter than the rest of the world, I've worked with a few security and encryption specialists that have actually come out of countries to work in the US that had restrictions of trade of the very materials they specialized in developing.

When it comes to mathematics and software, everyone is pretty much on an equal playing field.

Manufacturing technology, that's a whole different story and now we're the ones starting to fall behind.

Oh well, it's just posturing and saber rattling.

Definite nexus here IMHO Bill:

a) just posturing and saber rattling

b) now we're the ones starting to fall behind

B follows A
