China: Destroying it's support one chunk at a time

Following their achievement in Copenhagen of being credited with stonewalling the conference, China has managed to now piss off Google.

After getting the agreement with Google that the company would censor it's searches for Chinese users, Google Announced it would be suspending it's policy of self censorship in China. Why would Google do this even though it knows this action could likely end it's contract in China. Because of consistent attacks by Chinese based hackers on the gmail accounts of Chinese Human Rights Activists.

For a while now, China has been scoring several important victories. It had managed to paint itself as a "Green Country" moving towards a non-carbon future. It had gotten Google to self-censor itself against anti-government material from China based users. Now it's own greed and need for control seem to be nixing these past victories.

  1. When it comes to their human rights record, China so seldom misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    What else should anyone really expect? This is a country that still believes it can conceal these things from the world.
