I've been reading various stories all over the net for two or three days about a "showdown" between the US and the EU or the UN or both. The Johnny-come-latelies to the internet in Europe want a piece of the net's control. China, Russia and others want control of the internet under the auspices of the UN, where they can control it. The US's position is, "We like it just fine the way it is." This is a showdown like that of a 12 year-old with a slingshot up against Josie Wales. No contest. There will not be showdown nor a confrontation. We just say, "No." and that's that.
