Earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke out against Chinese Internet censorship at a speech she gave at The Newseum in Washington, DC. China's not too happy about it.
China said Clinton's remarks had no basis. They also said that the accusations of censorship hurt U.S.-China ties.
This week, China put the brakes on their lending practices. The U.S., of course, has relied tons on lending from the Chinese. The new lending limits have rightly been attributed to other economic factors, but for the Chinese government it's coming at a great time to wage this Internet war.
