    I wonder if they will do it in Chinese? If not, hard for much of the population to access!

    A website that work with only has Chinese law translated into English (their own laws) and has been blocked in China for 5 years. I don't think its censorship though, I think its protectionism....Beijing University has a similar site. Go Figure

    I had to laugh at the article and how Hilary who is getting too shrill lately stopped short of embracing Wikileaks.

    Not sure what the Americans have to gain by trying to gouge the eye of China who holds so much of their debt.

    Why on earth would she embrace Wikileaks, which a site for the uploading of stolen private documents?

    Actually the Americans would prefer that China not hold so much US debt; China holds the debt because of its sterilization (i.e., manipulation) of its currency; in order to hold the RMB down, they have to buy dollars. Better for everyone is China would stop monkeying around with the currency - China holding so much US debt puts them in a weaker position, not a stronger one.

    Haha, this is really funny.

    Hilary has shown her naivety with foreign politics, especially with China.

    Anyway it's pretty easy to get around the firewall with VPN's.

    not true....many VPN's have now been blocked, and it seems only OpenVPN's are a "safe" bet. Although that may not last long either.
