How the hell do you people come to the conclusion that they will be able to go outside of their own border to shut down sites. Enacted law IN THE
UNITED STATES or not. The last I checked they do not have world wide control. Yes as I've said before they do things on their own without approval
like going into Iraq with out approval from the UN. But that doesn't mean that they will be able to FOLLOW THROUGH with world wide internet
domination. You folks just don't have that much control. sorry to bust the bubble.
The United States rejected a European Union proposal late 2005 that called for Internet control to go to the United Nations Working Group on Internet
Governance. The U.S. had taken a position that U.N. administration (of the Internet) is not necessary," "I don't trust the U.N. to be efficient," "The
U.S. has taken a position that U.N. administration (of the Internet) is not necessary," said David Mussington, an analyst at RAND Corporation.
RAND CORPORATION is a nonprofit global policy think tank first formed to offer research and analysis to the United States armed forces by Douglas
Aircraft Company. It is currently financed by the U.S. government. So if the UN is incapable of managing the internet... what makes the US so capable.
Especially when there would be a very selfish and nonholistic view of what should be allowed. You can't BUT I can! Hmmm?
So example when something pops up on Aljazeera that the US government doesn't like they can shut it down... That's BS... We'll see what we see!
If the countries decided to join together to push out the specific sites I would have no problem with that. But not one for all when it's not all for
