U.S. Army War College: "Google vs. China"

Greetings. The new, Summer 2010 edition of the U.S. Army War College's unclassified Parameters ("The US Army's Senior Professional Journal") includes a very interesting article entitled Google Confronts China's "Three Warfares" -- it's an essay well worth reading.

The article is authored by Timothy L. Thomas -- an analyst at the Foreign Military Studies Office (Fort Leavenworth, Kansas).

The article discusses -- in the context of broader U.S./China foreign relations issues -- Thomas' views of the interplay between recent Chinese hacking attacks on Google (and other enterprises), censorship, Google's reactions to the Chinese attacks, and other associated events.

I've archived a local copy (PDF) for convenient access here:

Google Confronts China's "Three Warfares"

I'd be very interested in your thoughts regarding the article. Thanks.
