Google’s threat to shut down its operations in China might seem like just a dispute between a private company and a government, but the implications are huge for the world’s fastest-growing economy, for the United States and for global relations, says analyst Fareed Zakaria.

With the dispute in the background, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday the U.S. is committed to freedom of speech online and to freedom from the fear of cyber-attacks.

The Google-China dispute surfaced January 12 when the search engine company said it and other companies were the target of cyber-attacks originating in China aimed at gaining access to the e-mail of Chinese advocates for human rights.
