Google is expected to announce on Monday that it will withdraw from China on April 10, according to a report in a Beijing-based newspaper that cited an unidentified sales associate who works with the company.

"I have received information saying that Google will leave China on April 10, but this information has not at present been confirmed by Google," the China Business News quoted the agent as saying. The report also said Google would reveal its plans for its China-based staff that day.

Google has identified China as the source of attacks on prominent U.S. Web properties and e-mail accounts belonging to human rights activists, though it has not revealed the specific people behind them. For its part, the Chinese government has denied any involvement.

Google danced with the devil and didn't like waking up in a cheap hotel room. AOL used to be the Google of the 1990s. I wonder who will be the Google of 2010s?

Actually, Google is just as Communistic as the Chinese. They steal patents/technologies faster than anybody. Just look at the Apple lawsuit against HTC/Google as proof.

Google also seems to push Socialism/Communism via their censoring of search results. Rush mentioned this yesterday on his program.

I was able to log in and post on FR about 8 years ago...I can’t find the thread anymore though. I think I titled it “greetings from the evil empire.”

I’m guessing FR is probably blocked now
