After Droid Wars, Here Comes Opium Wars. Is Google Too Blind To See Evil!?

Droid Wars, Opium Wars
Gizmodo carries an article that I read at a gulp. It was about Google and China war! Yes it is a literally a war because one is trying impose one's ideas on the other.
Pay heed, Google did not go to China for Chinese people nor it did not leave to save Chinese people. It might have helped Baidu reach it's goal but it is a by product!

Google entered China with trepidation in 2006: "We ultimately reached our decision by asking ourselves which course would most effectively further Google's mission to organize the world's information and make it universally useful and accessible. Or, put simply: how can we provide the greatest access to information to the greatest number of people?
"Filtering our search results clearly compromises our mission. Failing to offer Google search at all to a fifth of the world's population, however, does so far more severely."
I use Google extensively but on this issue, I am not with Google.
You can read the article by Brian Lam and the swath of comments, to understand (you do not have to agree or disagree).
