First. It is completely impossible for Chinese government to setup
censorship system out of its territory, especially in a democratic country.
If they were to do this, it would not only be against the law of country in
which their censor system located, but also seriously destroy their
Second. Even if such nodes exist, only they act as exit node can the censor
system works. Even in this situation, they still cannot trace back the

I've been thinking about the recent threads involving our recent

this case, excluding Chinese nodes, for the purposes of circumventing
the Great Firewall.
However, such an approach relies on the ability to tie an IP address to
geography. This led me to something that while simple, could break this
What if the Chinese government were to open virtual server accounts in
other countries? Assuming they had massive connectivity (which some
locations do - there's such a place near me, which hosts among other
things, Google), malicious Tor nodes could be run on them.
Since excluding by geography would be useless, they'd only need to sit
back and wait.
