of only the u.s. could love in that we're an intellectual property generating a company. china's a giant economy. they produce -- why can't they just define their national security objectives as including the economic health of their companies. i mean, is the distinction that we're drawing really a stable one and that we'll be able to sustain in an international argument over what's legitimate and what's illegitimate in the rem of economic espionage? >> well, it's a good question. let's think about it the other way around for a second because whether or not we bring prosecutions and follow the evidence where it's a choice no matter what. and what we're seeing is we're seeing victim companies, private entities inside the united states, indictment details. they might design a pipe and put a lot of research in designing the pipes. and then the -- there's a question over whether you buy what they have built with their hard work and innovation or steal it. and when we come across a case of somebody stealing it by hacking into somebody's system without permission and taking the design th

. dave, you were asking earlier about china. i do not take potential competition from china lightly, but i am absolutely confident we've got better cars than china does. and i'd much rather have our problems than china's problems. that i'm confident about. on the other hand, the one thing i will say is that if they need to build some stuff, they can build it. and over time, that wears away our advantage competitively. it's embarrassing -- you drive down the roads, and you look at what they're able to do. the place that we stayed at for the apec summit was this lavish conference center, and it probably put most of the conference centers here to shame. they built it in a year. now, you've got an authoritarian government that isn't necessarily accountable. i understand we're not going to do that. but if they're able to build their ports, their airports, their smart grid, their air traffic control systems, their broadband systems with that rapidity and they're highly superior to ours -- over time, that's going to be a problem for us. so, fred, i guess the answer is, i'm going to talk to

. what is your view on google withdrawing from china? more specifically, to provide limited but still superior service to 1.4 billion people compared to no service at all. gabriel: that was definitely the most challenging chapter of my time at google without a doubt. you know, it was a source of real soul-searching at the company. first, let me tell you where we stand on this at twitter and i can try to shed some light on how that went for us at google. twitter is currently blocked in china. as much as we would love for people in china to be able to freely access twitter, they cannot. what we said is that we are unwilling to make the kinds of sacrifices that we believe we would need to make in order to be unblocked there. perhaps there is a world in which twitter can be unblocked but it would require sacrifices that were just not prepared to commit to because of our values. in the case of google, i would say it was similar. the difference was for us at the time to continue to operating there, it was requiring levels of sacrifice that we were unwilling to continue to sign up for. you c

the other threats we face. china has been very, very aggressive at militarization in space. and they are very aggressive about investment in technology, certainly to try to mute the strength of our u.s. naval forces around the world. and then, one those things happen, you watch what their aggressiveness in the south china sea. and that is clearly something that is concerning and i think it's a growing tension. i still believe that between vietnam and japan, there will be some maritime skirmish within the next 24 months, and i don't think it will be huge, but i do think there will be a maritime skirmish between either vietnam or japan with china in their pursuit to push out their boundaries in the south china sea. that's significant, about 40% of the world's trade goes through the south china sea. we have been, as the u.s. navy, we have been there since we've been a country. so when china starts telling us that the u.s. navy can't be in the south china sea, that's a huge, significant strategic threat to the united states and certainly our economic prowess in the world. clearly russia
