Google incident and US Internet strategy

By Wen Guang | China Daily | Updated: 2010-01-23 07:44

Recently the Google incident became a much-publicized concern for many people. Part of the cause was the fact that Google has been a giant corporation of the world, with many interesting experiences during its development. However, another reason should be the involvement of US State Department. From her dining with Google executives at the beginning to her speech on Internet freedom on Thursday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could easily be seen in the process.

In fact, the Google incident has reflected the Internet strategy of the United States. The essence of the US Internet strategy is to exploit its advantages in Internet funds, technology and marketing, and export its politics, commerce and culture to other nations for political, commercial and cultural interests of the world's only superpower. This is not merely sales, but coerced trade under the disguise of protecting "universal values".

In this incident, Google has elaborately selected reasons and excuses of its threat of withdrawal from China. Opposition to cyber attacks and Internet censorship are good reasons in both political and non-political terms, for they not only take a high ground, but also fall in line with the impression of China constructed for quite some time by Western media for their public. Without disguise, this is employed directly for the United States to carry out its Internet strategy.
