Icann had previously been operating under the auspices of the American government, which had control of the net thanks to its initial role in developing the underlying technologies used for connecting computers together.So, welcome to our brave new world, where foreign countries control what goes over our internet.
But the fresh focus will give other countries a more prominent role in determining what takes place online, and even the way in which it happens – opening the door for a virtual United Nations, where many officials gather to discuss potential changes to the internet.
Barack Obama is playing a perverse Robin Hood, giving away everything that's ours, including our dignity as a nation, to assuage his own liberal guilt for America's successes and to see through his death wish for America as we know it. Ever since his Annenberg Challenge and Jeremiah Wright days, it's been Obama's aim to tear down America from its former greatness and turn it into a third rate socialist tinhorn banana republic.
American exceptionalism and greatness are not in the working vernacular of one Barack Hussein Obama (I challenge you to find any of those words in any of his speeches). As a matter of fact, Mr. Obama is doing his level best to ensure that the concepts of exceptionalism and greatness never darken America's shores again.
Welcome to hopenchange, folks.
