Google It's been quiet about the Google-China dispute for a while now, but today, the silence was broken by China's minister of Industry and Information Technology, Li Yizhong, who stated that Google must either obey Chinese law or "pay the consequences", leaving no room for a compromise. With more and more western countries building their own internet filters and internet monitoring schemes, it becomes ever harder to make a strong fist against China.

Emm.
Your contribution is as valuable, as telling them that they have mongoloid faces.
Surely they need to applaud you for this brilliant entry, captain obvious.

My point in the discussion is "So what?".
Let the Chinese decide for themselves and New Zealanders for themselves.

Well, I'd much rather be Captain Obvious asking for other people's views other than the fallicious ones presented thus far, than a depressed cynic who offers nothing positive and doesn't try to read possible valid points in posts - merely ignore them and look for any flaws (taking a tangent if need be just to score some extra negativity points).

I was astounded to hear that the recent Ukranian elections resulted in a russian-born Prime Minister who can barely speak Ukranian. Perhaps you have a right to be cynical with this result. However, first you joke you welcome and overlord and when this is questioned you then agree it might not be a good idea? Perhaps you need to get outside and sample whatever of spring has made it's way to the Ukraine. Life is good if you want it to be.

So, how are you going to improve life for an average Xiao?

Nah, he was born on the territory of modern Ukraine.

Prime Minister
Nah. Prime Minister (who also competed for the chair) was Armenian-(it's pretty strange, site seems antisemitic). Yanukovich was Prime Minister in 2002-2004 and 2006-2007, not in 2010.

who can barely speak Ukranian.
Noone of them does.
Except for Canadian diaspora guests, who speak antiquated Ukrainian and express antiquated thoughts.

Perhaps you have a right to be cynical with this result.
Thank you for granting me this right. Actually, it's the lesser of evils, but I'm quite tired of constantly choosing between evils.

However, first you joke you welcome and overlord and when this is questioned you then agree it might not be a good idea?
First you say that we all eventually die, then you agree that dying is not good.
Hmm, I don't see any logical fail here.

Perhaps you need to get outside and sample whatever of spring has made it's way to the Ukraine. Life is good if you want it to be.
Thank you, my own life is pretty good. It's fragile, though.

I donnot think Chinese or NZ decides themselves to be filtered. That is Tyranny of gov.
