A Year's Further Research On an Espionage Network

superyanthrax Blah blah blah Western hypocrisy (61 comments)

So you're telling me that the US doesn't spy on Russia and China, and that they don't execute cyberattacks against Al-Qaeda or the Taliban? Western hypocrisy on display right here for the umpteenth time.

Chinese Reactions To Google Leaving China

superyanthrax There will never be democracy in China (249 comments)

The day there is "democracy" in China, there will be an American flag flying over Tiananmen Square, and that day will never come in a million years. "Democracy", "freedom", and "human rights" are merely code words for American imperialism. They will freely support brutal dictators when it suits their interests, while discrediting and undermining free elections that result in an unfriendly government. Remember Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar were once on the CIA's payroll and lauded as "freedom fighters", while Saddam Hussein was once a staunch American ally. But the American Empire will never succeed in conquering China.

We're Staying In China, Says Microsoft

superyanthrax Brin is a useless douchebag (249 comments)

How the hell does someone who is 6 years old know anything about what's going on around them anyway, especially issues of politics and governance? All he knows is what his parents told him, and given that they defected they were probably traitors anyway.

Microsoft gets it. You will follow our laws if you want to do business in our country, otherwise you can GTFO. If Brin wants to lose money on purpose for a farcical and irrelevant cause, he can do so by all means. Google's shareholders won't be so happy with him.

Sergey Brin On Google and China

superyanthrax Google will never win (368 comments)

They will follow our laws, or they won't be doing business in our country. If they want to leave their 30% market share behind, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Baidu has the other 70% and will gladly take the 30%.

If they want to holler "human rights" and make up random junk about hackers, then they can GTFO. We will not knuckle under to a foreign corporation and give them extraterritoriality. The time for that has passed by more than 60 years. Google needs us more much more than we need them, although that's not saying much since we don't need Google at all.

Complaining that China is not "open politically" or other such garbage is simply a code word for saying that China refuses to submit to American imperialism. I support that 150%. China will never again be the lapdogs of the West. Long live the People's Republic of China!

China Warns Google To Obey Or Leave

superyanthrax Google needs China, not the other way around (533 comments)

Baidu can just take over the other 30% market share it doesn't have, but Google loses quite a bit of revenue.

I wonder how the next Google stockholder's meeting will go if Google leaves, how can the Board answer the question of why the stockholders' interests (i.e. profits) were blatantly compromised for empty, useless proclamations of "human rights?"

Google will cave because they need us and we don't need them. "Human rights" are a ridiculous non-issue. Nobody in power in the world actually cares at all, they just use it to rile up their own people against foreign governments. When push comes to shove stuff will get done and "human rights" will not get in the way.

top Still Remains In China

superyanthrax HAHAHAHAHAHAHA (103 comments)

I guess Google couldn't live without it's 25% market share in China. Clearly it needs the cash. We don't need Google, but Google needs us, and that's a fact.

All you morons who thought Google would actually cause China to cave and not the other way around, how does that crow taste?

Also, what a retarded article summary, clearly if they didn't follow our laws we were going to kick them out of China, the "concrete action" the summary refers to. The implicit threat of this was obviously enough for them to cave. Again, we don't need Google, but Google needs us.

China Slams Clinton's Call For Internet Freedom

superyanthrax Hillary the China-Hater strikes again (235 comments)

How will she backpedal this time after we make menacing statements on how reliable we think T-Bonds are? How will Obama clean up her mess?

If you want to get real progress on the real issues between China and the United States (i.e. NOT HUMAN RIGHTS), keep Hillary out of it. We'd like to discuss and make progress on those issues but not when Hillary the irrational China-Hater is out there spewing garbage about "human rights".

top Attack Part of a Broad Spying Effort

superyanthrax If by "corporate espionage" (515 comments)

you mean "couldn't outcompete Baidu", then you'd be right. Google is taking its ball and going home because they lost to Baidu. Watch Google pretend to be in favor of "human rights" when the issue is just that they lost in a capitalistic competition.

On a related note Hillary Clinton is an irrational China-hater. Watch Obama have to discreetly disavow what she says and end up making it up to us. If you want to actually get anything done with us rather than just pontificate for the sake of pleasing the China-hating segment of the electorate, then keep Hillary out of it.

Google Hacked, May Pull Out of China

superyanthrax Google takes its ball and goes home (687 comments)

Because it couldn't compete with Baidu. Of course you get to trumpet "human rights" like a douchebag even though Google is cutting and running and everyone knows it. No one gives a shit about human rights.

Apple Censors Dalai Lama iPhone Apps In China

superyanthrax Enemy of my enemy is my friend? (253 comments)

Funny how the Cold War "enemy of my enemy is my friend" train of thought induces supposed defenders of freedom and liberty (i.e. Americans and the West) to support a brutal dictator (the Dalai Lama) who would impose slavery, poverty, and theocracy on Tibet and its people, and who would try his damnedest sell out Tibet to the British just so he can continue lording and abusing the area as his personal fiefdom. Also, I didn't know Apple had to pay in grade school directors for following Chinese laws.

UN Officials Remove Poster Mentioning Chinese Firewall

superyanthrax Meanwhile (409 comments)

Your president is in China discussing REAL issues, like the trade deficit, trade protectionism, the massive Chinese holdings in USD and the repeated buying of American debt by China. All while staying as far away as possible from "human rights".

Face it, nobody cares about human rights, and as much as the Western media likes to blow them out of proportion it was never a real issue and now even your leadership acknowledges it.

China Bans Physical Punishment For Net Addicts

superyanthrax Re:Wow, that's impressive (139 comments)

If Americans were REALLY interested in the welfare of Chinese people, they'd allow free trade with China. Oh wait, oops, this will cause American manufacturing to completely collapse. Can't do that then.

News flash, people in China don't care about "human rights" nearly as much as how well off they are economically. As long as you use "human rights" as the stick in your left hand while the protectionism/economic imperialism stick in your right hand is waving menacingly nobody will listen to your propaganda about "human rights", especially in China. It is clear that you are simply trying to render our country impoverished and we won't take it unlike in the past. We aren't even bringing up how hypocritical the Americans are with their "human rights" promoting as they undermine elections and prop up brutal dictators because it suits their interests.

Chinese Bureaucrats Duel Over Right To Regulate WoW

superyanthrax Re:Power hungry money grubbing grab-asses (128 comments)

The fact that this comment is moderated insightful is quite indicative of the ridiculous anti-China bias present in all Western countries and promulgated by all Western media. Perhaps it's because we are out-competing you in the global economy, perhaps it is some fear of "communism", perhaps it is straight up racism.

It's really easy to seem insightful when in reality you're spewing garbage if you're surrounded by people who agree with you.

I can tell you with certainty after living in both China and the USA that the denizens of neither country care about China's "human rights". "Human rights" is simply a sort of straw man for the Americans to beat on, the real objection the Americans have is that they don't like the trade deficit and would rather see China impoverished, Chinese competitors erased, and manufacturing and tech jobs back in America. People in China don't care about freedoms if the government can guarantee their economic well being, on which progress isn't uniform but is there. Real complaints about the government from within China always result when someone is getting cheated out of money or property, perhaps due to government red tape or corruption.

Chinese Gov't Pushing Linux In Rural China With Subsidies

superyanthrax Slashdot falls in a faint (127 comments)

A governmental agency is supporting and distributing Linux and using subsidies to get people to buy it. But it's the Evil Communist Chinese. Oh no, what is a good China-hating Linux-loving Slashdot denizen to do?

The US's Reverse Brain Drain

superyanthrax Re:Quality of life (757 comments)

Right, so because you're a well off WASP, you can stand in your Ivory Tower and be your sanctimonious self pretending like you somehow have some higher moral ground, while your compatriots discriminate against Asians, stunting their career advancement, paying them less than whites, laying them off first in an economic crisis, etc, and now you're surprised when our home countries welcome us back with open arms and give us great well-paying job opportunities as well, and so we decide to leave?

I'll bet you the panhandler on the street and the guy that just got laid off couldn't care less about human rights and personal liberty. If China offered them a permanent well paying job and an apartment, they'll go. Of course there is no incentive for us to pay random bums, we're past the era of doing completely unproductive things just to score political points.

Green card holders can have their green card revoked if it is determined that they have an intent to establish a permanent residence in another country, no matter how long they have been out of the USA, I have a feeling they are trying to have a "gotcha" so they can kick you out.

China Considering Cuts In Rare-Earth Metal Exports

superyanthrax This thread is all American imperialist propaganda (456 comments)

News flash, the Chinese government serves the interests of the Chinese people, not yours. The governments of other countries around the world exist to serve and protect their own people, not to serve and protect American interests. It seems that most American have forgotten that and expect every government to be an American shill. We refuse to be your shill.

Speaking of capitalism and free trade, you're all for it when you are crushing nascent industries in underdeveloped regions like Africa to ensure that your industries will have free reign to sell stuff there, but when a country like us can actually compete with you, or possibly even out-compete you, you cry foul and demand protectionism. Free trade is only good when America gets the advantage, it seems.

Speaking of corrupt and autocratic governments, your government is nowhere near clean of corruption, and you have never shown any compunction to support autocratic and corrupt governments when they serve your interests; I don't think I need to bring up all the Cold War examples but if you want an example of today, look no further than the PLO Palestinian authority government and Karzai's Afghan government.

American imperialism and hypocrisy is on full display in this thread.
