    You obviously only read the headline and the first couple of paragraphs. Read the entire article and you'll get a different take.

    Better than to the incompetent fools that are running it now. The very fact that the US justice police seize domains for websites that are not only situated in other countries but are not even in English, shows how bad the system is.

    Not even in English, huh?

    That should really throw everyone off the trail.

    The US should never relinquish control of the Internet. The Internet has flourished on US leadership, and it's not worth the chance of screwing it up. This is way too important to let the UN just willy-nilly take over.

    Considering what the UN wants to do under "Agenda 21" I wouldn't trust the UN as far as I could throw them....And speaking of throwing them, we should throw them out.

    So are you saying that the Weekly Standard's claim is biased? Inaccurate? What does it have wrong?
