Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

I'm sick of seeing US government messing with people's rights and freedom. And they are messing with people's rights and freedom worldwide, not just in US.

They attacked Iraq because of some alleged WMDs hidden deep in Saddam's ass, and now the have found some hidden WMDs hidden deep in the web.

I'm sick of US government and their pretended wars on drugs, terrorism, child pornography, I'm sick on US pretending to defend democracy, freedom and intellectual property.

In fact, all they do is defending the interests of large corporations and the interests of some ethnic and religious groups who tend to own every big business in US. I not going to name the race and religion of this groups because I don't want to be accused of racism, but everybody knows who really owns and rules America.

As for US messing with people's websites, why not try to cease using .com and .net extensions and host the site in Europe?

I'd really like to see US government trying to close some .eu sites hosted in Europe. And because they can't, the next logical step will be to follow China and implement the next Great Firewall.
