U.S.-China tensions are still high following the 'Google affair.' Less than a day after asking China to investigate the cyber-attack, Chinese officials issued a statement urging "the U.S. side to respect the facts, and to stop using the so-called Internet freedom issue to make groundless charges against China."

    It's so difficult to really know who's telling the truth here. Odds are that neither side is. But there's no doubt that there are hidden motives behind the tension. For one thing, most people don't realize that Google has very deep connections with the CIA and the military and is absolutely complicit in a whole lot of dirty goings on. I think it's important for people to be aware of that. Here's a good place to start getting caught up on it:

    It seems that China totally ignored the cyber attack and attempted to deflect the issues.

    It's long past time for the Chinese government to grow up and engage the world on an adult basis. This childish foot-stamping nonsense is going to leave the rest of the world overstraining their eye-rolling muscles.

    @ Northern Dancer: Read the article you linked. I didn't see anything illegal or suspicious there. It's good Google is working with the IC; maybe a little mis-spelling won't screw up the next terrorist database search. BTW, the article's "Googles [sic] Friends spy on millions of Internet Users" smacks of McCarthyism (i.e., guilt by association).

    At least you had an open mind to read it PCScipio. If everybody would at least look at information like that, the overall picture would become a lot more clear. One thing is for sure, the info you read in that link is certainly nothing you'd ever see on the MSM.

    There are several other typographical errors in that article. So what? There are no perfect typists. The content seems as credible and incredible as other information and disinformation. What can one do besides stay alert, be as careful and prepared as possible, walk uprightly, and pray?
