What's the difference between what China is doing and what the E.U/U.S.A. plan to do with terror websites?
I don't think the plan to shut down terror websites will ever come to be. There are too many problems in trying to do that and removing the sites
wont stop terrorism anyways. Personally I think if they are removing terrorism sites then they should also be removing hate
sites like the
frontstormer's. But then I guess where does it end? Sites about bomb making? Hacker sites? Porn?
A tough issue anyway.
The problem with the Chinese Internet control is that they are not looking to remove 'terrorist' websites. They will be deciding what News
get posted on what news sites. That is a huge
difference from shutting down a terrorism web site.
This is about restricting what News gets to the people, not preventing terrorism.
