Obstacles to Chinese web sites

My understanding is this:

-All outbound chinese traffic from mainland is filtered through a strict firewall.
-All web sites inside China are strictly monitored.

So basically if you build a web site on a server inside China, you have to abide by a lot of local rules and censorship. If you build a website outside China, it might be filtered out at the firewall for many uncertain reasons related to both your content and ads present on that site. And if tensions ever increase between China and US, whole parts of the US could even presumably be closed off to chinese browsers.

Is this correct?

You can host your site in HK. China doesn't ban HK companies, and there are lots of HK companies owned by Brits.

Number one rule in doing business in Asia (same as in Singapore), never openly challenge the authority or break the laws. You will be safe then.

As for tensions between US and China, there has always been tensions.

But i'm be more worried of tensions between Russia and the USA, as you can see Russia has ambitions on oil rich neighboring countries, which will put it into direct conflict with USA.
