Hear, hear!

Bill Gates said if Google chooses to pull out of the United States, then he'd give them credit.

What does he mean? Who let him say like that?

He is an American, and he makes his big money in US. Without America, this poor naughty student can never become the billionaire at the top of the world riches.

Now he begins to earn more money in China. So he turns to his new consumption. Yeah, he is doing right! He is beating his dangerous rival in China, Google.

But does that make him brighter, or richer?


Gates: Net curbs in China very limited

Microsoft Corp Chairman Bill Gates has described Beijing's efforts to censor the Internet as "very limited", saying corporations which operate in China should abide by the local law.

In an interview on ABC's Good Morning America on Monday about Google's dispute with China, Gates said the Internet is subject to different kinds of censorship around the world, noting that Germany forbids pro-Nazi statements that would be protected as free speech in the United States.

"And you've got to decide: Do you want to obey the laws of the countries you're in, or not? If not, you may not end up doing business there," Gates, the world's richest man, said without mentioning the search engine giant by name.

"The Chinese efforts to censor the Internet have been very limited and so I think keeping the Internet thriving there is very important."

He declared he was unimpressed and a bit perplexed by Google's recent threat to shut down its operations in China, citing disagreements with government policies and unspecified attacks.

One may or may not agree with the laws in China, Gates said, but nearly all countries have some controversial laws or policies, including the United States.

"What point are they making?" Gates asked. "Now, if Google ever chooses to pull out of the United States, then I'd give them credit."

Who can answer this question? It seems that walking away from a 30% market share would not be sound business strategy. Is Google another soldier of the U.S. cyberwar machine along side Facebook, Twitter, and the others?

Google has coded in hack-cess specifically designed for ease of control by U.S. agencies. We also have our own laws that control the private citizens use of the internet. Why is this ok for us, but not for our rivals? Why is it ok for us to hardwire and code in the ability to invade privacy and spy, but it's not ok for other countries? If we didn't want spying to be so easy, we shouldn't have designed it into the system.

All companies operating in the US have to follow US law. Other countries expect the same respect for local law. If our friends in Japan think they can come to America and order kiddie-porn dilivered to their hotel room or download it while it America, they're going to be punished. We have local laws, they are not exactly the same as other people's laws, but you have respect them when you are in our country.

Back to the main point. If Google SHOULD pull out of China on some kind of ethical grounds related to internet freedom of movement and freedom from manipulation. Then of course they should pull out of the US first. Because America's control is greater, even hardwired into their system and inked into our laws. Which government spends the most on cyber-espionage? That's us. Who has more government agents working in Google, Beijing or Washington? I think we all know the answer.

so bill gates has a head on his shoulders after all

bill is perplexed because he doesnt realize that google is a homosexual corporation more interested in spreading agendas and pornography than anything else

Googles top execs put the companies interests in the back seat while their own delinquent desires too the wheel

I never though i would say this, but EVERYONE needs to take the advice of Bill Gates. You should ALWAYS follow the laws of the country you are in, and NOT use your presence there by the good graces of the country to further your own agenda and interfere with internal policical affairs, OR YOU WILL lose your right to do business there

just as Bill Gates said
