E-mail leak has Google threatening to leave China

Apparently China is no one's friend. But since, they have all our money, and make all our stuff, China can do no wrong. So I guess, we will have to let individual entities take care of the looming monster in the closet, cause the great, Ceasar Baracus Obamanus will only bow to them.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Google Inc. said Tuesday it might end its operations in China after it discovered that the e-mail accounts of human rights activists had been breached. The company disclosed in a blog post that it had detected a "highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China." Further investigation revealed that "a primary goal of the attackers was accessing the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists," Google's post said.

Google did not specifically accuse the Chinese government. But the company added that it is "no longer willing to continue censoring our results" on its Chinese search engine, as the government requires. Google says the decision could force it to shut down its Chinese site and its offices in the country.

Ya might want to research the censoring laws of China. There is many. Yea, China has not violated any human rights laws. NOOOOOOOO. And the United Nations is doing it's job. Toto, I want to go home.
