China will punish Google hackers

China will punish Google hackers The Chinese government has said it is ready and willing to punish hackers in the country that allegedly targeted Google Inc. and other companies earlier this year, if Google can provide evidence against the accused. Vice Minister Miao Wei said that Google has not filed a report to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology over the cyber attacks or sought negotiations with the government.
"If Google has had evidence that the attacks came from China, the Chinese government will welcome them to provide the information and will severely punish the offenders according to the law," Miao said. "We never support hacking attacks because China also falls victim to hacking attacks."

As for Google's threat to leave China following the events and ongoing tensions over mandated censorship, Miao said that the company didn't notify the ministry that it is considering a withdrawal from the country either. "If Google decides to continue its business in China and abides by China's laws, it's welcome to stay," he said.

"If the company chooses to withdraw from the Chinese market, it must go through certain procedures according to the law and regulations and deal with customers' problems that may arise." He went on to vow that China will continue to provide a sound investment environment for foreign investors and protect their legitimate rights.

That's a tough dilemma for Google. I'm sure they don't want people MURDERED over the incident(s) (which is what China tends to do), yet don't want to ignore it either. Maybe s__t-for-brains hackers DO deserve a firing squad, though...and all the spam network operators!

"If the company chooses to withdraw from the Chinese market, it must go through certain procedures according to the law and regulations and deal with customers' problems that may arise." What are they gonna do if Google ignores the "procedures"... hack 'em.

How do we not know that our own government attacked google in order to get the public to further accept the restrictions on the internet and our freedoms of speech through the Cyber Security Bill? All governments do this, they attack themselves (False Flag) to get the consent of the people to accept their agenda ...usually giving up freedoms for false security. It's not about security but incrementally making the people become the government's slaves.

The Cyber Security Bill will giver the government the power to create an interent grid that all citizen's will have to use. They will recruit K-12 graders to work as employee to monitor internet usage through scholarships. Because the economy will be so bad by then, that all the citizen will be more dependent on the government. You see the government wants use to become more dependent on them, so they can further control and reduce our numbers through their government control health care and cancer causing food. They will front this Cyber Scheme by using Non-Profit Organizations as their patsies, and went something goes wrong they will put all the responsibilities on Non-Profits.

The Cyber Security Bill has already passed the House, and is already in the Senate.

Easy, I'm Canadian so it's not my government your talking about. But as for the U.S. government can't hurt to be alittle paranoid.

I'm not being paranoid b/c it will come to fruition if that Bill is not stopped. Sure, Canada might be safe now, but it's only a matter of time. In fact, this Bill is only a small chuck of the Globalists grand evil scheme of things.

Have you heard of the North American Union? It's just going to be like the European Union under one continental currency, except it will be called the Amero. This Union will join Canada, Mexio, and the U.S. into one, make each country lose their sovereignty and totally wreck their economies. It's only a matter of time b/c the U.S. financial collapse is getting worse, despite what the media is saying (the media is own by the Globalist, they shape the people false sense of perception), and countries all over the world are dropping the U.S. Dollar as their reserve currency. So once the dollar further drops, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) will create a global currency to replace the U.S. currency, in which they will have more control over.

Since the globalist elites control all the major banks and money, they control the economy and the lives of everyone in the world that depends on having money to survive. So it's not the greed of accumulating more money, but the greed of getting more and more power through money, and collecting more hard assets such as a countries property and natural resources.

So we are all going to be screwed eventually, not in one fellow swoop, but through acclimation and incremental restrictions that most people will not realize because they will become use to it incrementally.

The only way to save ourselves is to inform more and more people about this issue to bring about a change, b/c this is a GLOBAL issue.

Well I do know a bit about globalization thanks to Jello. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaZU1jQwpV0
and I think you've got me wrong I never said being paranoid was a bad thing we do after all need to keep an eye on the government to at least try to stop them from making stupid decisions. As for Canada I don't see them hack Google specifically.

I'm from China, and I'm not sure the Google hackers are chinese, and hacking is serious in China.

Afterdawn posted an article a few days (a week or so) back, saying that the institution where the alleged hacking came from are denying the claims of hacking.

I wouldn't be surprise if they found some scapegoats to blame the hacking on.

That is Japanese. Whale and dolphin meat are expensive, so it's not like everyone in Japan has eaten it before, and if so, very rarely.

Ahh yes, they'll have their little "show" trial, outcomes have already been decided. They'll then stick some scapegoats behind bars, or worse, and back to business as usual.

Ummm dolphin and whale meat is often used in Japanese school lunches. I saw some dolphin meat for sale last time I was there, and it only cost about 160 JPY per 100g's ($1.7 USD approx), which isn't that expensive.
