Why everyone is worried about China here ? I dont see any sensible reason for them to be so. They always reject whats been offered if its from US and now they start complaining.

That's right WB, the Internet is right now pervasive, but any region is aiming the control of the local users and this is not an easy step to run, in my eyes.

So the US is behind some attacks but is worried about China? Who's worried about the US? (the rest of the World). 

They can't play the good guy and the bad guy, at least not in the same game.

>>Not easy to agree on common and shared rules for Internet government.<<

Well, if trading and marketing only place of getting success heavily hinged on internet. Why so difficult in agreeing on goals and objectives for the sustainability of internet as well for its development? Now that internet is practically becoming everything for the world - securing it remains a big challenge. The longer it remains uncheckmated the bad its for businesses of the world.

"don't forget for instance that at the time of tzunami in Japan, it was the only network running and it played a fundamental role in the emergency."

Yes true and social media was a great help during that time but we have to remember that we are using the internet basically most hours per day so the risk of getting into trouble via internet is very high. A very thin margin divide the good from the bad in internet

@p_d: that's right and going further I am wondering the reason for still discussing about the way for using Internet in the negative sense; I don't forget for instance that at the time of tzunami in Japan, it was the only network running and it played a fundamental role in the emergency.

@WB: thanks for link, it reports very clearly the result of the summit; the point, in my view, is that Internet acts as medium, for one part, for providing positive services and for another part, for providing bad services. Not easy to agree on common and shared rules for Internet government.

The recently concluded world conference on international telecommunications tagged WCIT Dubai twenty twelve ( WCIT -12) was meant to address some of the pressing issues - internet governance being the top of agenda of the conference. But unfortunately this was not successfull as planned.

The way the media is reporting this, the US didn't take appropriate steps earlier becuase of a threat to privacy. I don't think you can get a bigger threat than China hacking your system. I'm no fan of Big Brother, but in this case, US government measures are the lesser of two evils.

Since the end of world war II , ther has been esoionage activity by almost all the countries to gather secret information about the political developments, the economic conditions, the warfare and so on.

The internet has given everybody another tool to do espionage as well as the disruptive activities like the cyber attacks.

Only differnece now is that unlike the earlier espiogae activity which involved sphisticated satellite systems which only countries like US could afford to deply, in case of the Cyber world it is more of a level playing field .
