Is it right of the US government to say Google, Yahoo, ect....should not censor their services and collaborate with the Chinese government's oppression of their people when the US government practices all kinds of trade with the same oppressive chinese government?

Whose job is it to worry about the civil liberties of chinese citizens? Our government's or our corporation's?

Good questions. I don't think the U.S. government should tell Yahoo or Google what to do, unless they're violating the law. I also don't think Yahoo or Google refusing to sensor their search results for China would have a substantial impact on China's human rights policies. So I say one inch at a time.
