Google claimed on its official blog on June 1 that the personal Gmail accounts of hundreds of users, including senior U.S. government officials, journalists and Chinese human rights activists, suffered phishing attacks originating from Jinan, China.In fact, this is not the first time that Google has slandered China.Google alleged in January 2010 that it suffered cyber attacks from inside China but has not presented any evidence so far. This time, in order to cater to the West's stereotyped image of China, Google listed "Chinese human rights activists" as victims, insinuating that the Chinese government was behind the cyber attacks although once again it did not provide any solid proof to support its statement. The conclusion is therefore reached that Google's accusation is groundless and bears ulterior motives.
China and the United States have long been working together in combating cyber crimes, and have established an international cooperative mechanism in law enforcement. Google could directly bring the case to court if it had enough evidence. Why does it keeps tarnishing the image of China and hyping the so-called China threat theory.
