Internet & Networking At PrepCom3, a dramatic last-minute deal drawn up by the EU may mark the end of the US government's control of the internet. In essence, [the EU called for] a new version of the current overseeing body ICANN and an end to the US government's overall control of the DNS. The US was scathing about the proposals, within minutes telling delegates that it "can't in any way allow any changes" that would prevent it from having overall control of the internet. Other countries, like Brazil, China, Iran and Cuba support the proposal. Brazil's ambassador outlined: "It is not a question of being anti-ICANN, it's about having a very clear and open and democratic and inclusive mechanism of overview of certain functions that today are performed by ICANN with no kind of supervision."

So simply repay the US all the aid they've provided the world since WWI and then set up your own internet.

Haven't seen any precious aid? So you left before the storm and haven't been allowed back yet? That's the best/most plausible scenario, and if that's what's happened I can see your point. However after spending 3 weeks in New Orleans, the first in the Superdome, I know you are full of crap. I personally saw to dropping off water/food/supplies at different streets throughout the city. Went house to house by BOAT (I'm in the infantry, that's a bit out of my lane) to rescue survivors. There was an abundance of food/water EVERY WHERE that had been dropped off by rescue workers. Obviously if you are alive and well and on the internet you saw SOME of that "precious aid." You sir are a cry baby jackass.

All of the aid the US has provided to the world since WW1 pales compared to the amount of money China has lent to the US, to finance our massive budget and trade deficits.
The US is now a debtor, not a creditor.
