Chinese Government Threatens Google Over Hack Accusations
According to Reuters, the Chinese government is threatening Google, surprise, surprise. The Chinese government said that “Google has become a ‘political tool’ vilifying the Chinese government’ and it warned the company that its statements about the recent hacks traced to China could hurt its business.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry rejected the accusations and claimed that Google was badmouthing China as a political move. Laughably, the threat went unreceived by Google as they had no comment on the Chinese threats. I agree with Google’s approach. If you’re going to have to walk around eggshells to deal with a sensitive customer such as China, why deal with them at all?
China no doubt has one of the largest markets in the world and it would be wonderful if Google could tap into it, but Google is already successful and is doing fine supplying products and services to the rest of the world. It is clear to me that the Chinese government wants to continue sheltering its citizens from the truth.
I have no doubt in my mind that there will be a large-scale revolution, it will just take time. Sooner or later, the people will rise, I have no doubt. There’s only so much BS a nation can take. I for one, cannot stand being lied to.
