Know Your Enemy

People who see this as an effective tool for accomplishing change.
130 Iraqis, 7 U.S. soldiers killed in bombings

Microsoft blocks Chinese dissident's blog
Microsoft admits it removed the weblog of a dissident Chinese journalist, citing the company's policy of abiding by local laws.
Unless it's in Europe, which doesn't actually produce products for Microsoft like China does.
Most countries, the Microsoft rep continued, "have laws and practices that require companies providing online services to make the Internet safe for local users. Occasionally, as in China, local laws and practices require consideration of unique elements."
You know, like free speech and all that other subersive crap we are bleeding out our best and brightest to provide for people in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
