China charges U.S. monopolizes the Internet, seeks global control

Special to World Tribune.com EAST-ASIA-INTEL.COM Wednesday, March 2, 2005 China's ambassador to the United Nations last week called for international controls on the Internet.

Chinese Ambassador Sha Zukang told a UN conference that controls should be multilateral, transparent and democratic, with the full involvement of governments, the private sector, civil society and international organizations.

"It should ensure an equitable distribution of resources, facilitate access for all and ensure a stable and secure functioning," he said at the conference on Internet governance.

Sha said China opposes the "monopolization" of the Internet by one state, a reference to the Untied States, which ultimately controls the digital medium.

"It is of crucial importance to conduct research on establishing a multilateral governance mechanism that is more rational and just and more conducive to the Internet development in a direction of stable, secure and responsible functioning and more conducive to the continuous technological innovation," he said. China's communist government fears the Internet would dilute Beijing's control over its population, as information passes unfiltered throughout the country and outside of strict government censorship.

China strictly prohibits any public criticism of the ruling communist party and closely monitors and censors Internet usage. Periodically, Chinese security forces raid Internet cafes and arrest people who violate Chinese rules.

Sha said China has 94 million Internet users out of a worldwide total of about 810 million.

Agreed. The fact that we let anyone else but the US on the 'net is simply pragmatic courtesy, not because we must.

Excluding Hong Kong and Beijing's claim to Taiwan, that 94 million figure seems inflated.

Surely the overwhelming American control of the Internet is seen by the apparent prevalence of radical Islamist websites.

Aren't they the ones to push i.p. v6, effectively isolating themselves from the current internet? If I'm not mistaken, I
believe they monitor all incoming traffic anyhow. Wouldn't want to plant any of those freedom and democracy ideas now.

I agree with you fundamentally; US taxpayers funded the development of internet technologies. However, the Internet, as it is known today, has little to do with taxpayer money.

Obviously, most systems, networks, routers, &etc are privately owned and can be controlled by whoever owns them. For those that are owned by US taxpayers, then the taxpayer should retain control.

Maybe China should consider becoming a democracy before seeking to make the Internet more democratic. At that point, China's input might actually be helpful.

One thing really eludes me, and that is, how CAN the internet be controlled by ANYONE? I mean, servers and routers and optic fibre networks exist around the world, right? Or do all of these get plugged into some "internet centre" in America, and branch out from there?

well the first part is kinda wrong. Ipv6 is a solution to the Ip address number problem. As in they are running low.

But you are dead on with the second part. They want to censure what goes through.

yeah it'd be a bureaucratic nightmare(or wet dream depending on your view point).

But it could technically be done. There would be some problems with the "underground" which I'm sure would arise if the net was ever regulated.

[ China charges U.S. monopolizes the Internet, seeks global control ]

Maybe the Hildebeast will SELL it to them(the Chinese), like she and Bubba did everything else while in the White House..

Without nary a snort or guffaw from republicans either the Clintoons sold or let the Chinese steal much technolgical info while there.. Remember those Laptops and the chinese agent they "embedded" in White Sands... They didn't even get "Camp Cupcake" over this like Marsha did.. I prefer a gallows being set up on the White House lawn.. The hangings could go on for weeks.. just hanging the most heinous offenders..

What would the republicans do about it.?.
Probably nothin... as usual, except whine, meekly...

Look at the label on what you buy. If it says, "Made in China," consider whether you can live without buying it.

Someone should start a firm that prints "Not Made in China" labels. That way, things get to be a lot simpler for all of us, if these labels are used on products. Downside for the moment is, the person who prints out these labels will make a lot of money...



















...that's because 90% of everything I want is now MADE IN CHINA!!!
