    Kerry is asking what? What do you think the NSA can do? I can just see the Chinese eyes as Kerry tries to explain how freedom works in the USA with the internet.

    I will bet the US authorities can shut down the US internet in a split second. Everything is watched and certain things captured.

    Most likely, a sharing of tools to spy on people for the security of both the US and China. Makes more sense. Safety of people is a uniting goal. But if politically abused....

    China needs to be reminded of Article 19 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.

    Article 19. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

    That's pretty rich from Kerry. Let's see: The USSA/NSA telling the CCP about internet security and freedom? Bwaaaa! That's a knee-slapper!

    The Chinese have always been strict in things such as internet and television... The government entirely runs over everything..they are aware of what the people of their country do. I hope China grows when it comes to their people and country as a whole. I hope they are a le to see what's important and what isn't.

    Petty dance after the Snowden scandal.

    As if the control of the world through military and economic powers are not enough for the Empire, here we are fed daily of mostly biased information flowing though the most powerful western media and the internet (controlled by its military/industrial complex) to fool people of the world under the banner of freedom and democracy, and lately the use of 'security' to hide wrongdoings. The Empire will certainly not give up the control of current world internet networks to any world governing body.

    Only countries that are foolish would not think the need of information independence and security. Information means power and control, and would sink politicians as desired by the Empire. In most Asian countries, whether so called democratic or not, they are mostly run by powerful political families with corruptions, financial underhand and/or personal secrets are the norm. And when a foreign country gets hold of this information, obedience or exposure is the choice. That is why any past Japanese governments with independent thinking or having some tendency for a better relationship with neighbour China were quickly brought down with scandals to ensure the Empire's world domination with Japan serving its interest, and that a single party was in charged and continues to be in charge in Japanese politics. So happy voting!

    The Empire would not give a damn to communist or dictatorship as long as they serve the interest of the Empire. The fact China is seeking its independence and out of total control remains unacceptable by the Empire and hence a rogue nation to be bashed in spite of the significant progress made in that country for its huge population in the shortest period of time.

    Ask Abe what he intends to do with the Snowden incidence.

    Security Act on media control or finger-print sharing? What a joke.

    During the 40-minute meeting Saturday, the bloggers appealed to Kerry to support Chinese human rights activists and freer use of the Internet.

    And here's the response from some rich guys in the West:

    That's pretty rich from Kerry. Let's see: The USSA/NSA telling the CCP about internet security and freedom? Bwaaaa! That's a knee-slapper!

    and

    What hipocracy!! How dare Kerry and the USA (CIA, NSA, etc...black ops) ask China to do what the USA supposedly allows us so they can SPY on us 24/7!!!!!!

    Translation: Out of the way, little Chinese people. I have a REAL point to make about oppression, so get out of my way!

    Obviously, we think that Chinese economy will be stronger with greater freedom of the internet,”

    Bold statement, but he is talking against a wall of tyranny. The Politburo will never allow such freedom.
