"'Recent developments suggest that many of the governments suspected
of supporting al Qaeda are also promoting, being corrupted by, or at
the very least ignoring highly lucrative trafficking in counterfeit
and pirated products capable of generating huge money flows to
terrorists,' she writes. [...] ...the conclusion is unambiguous: You
either enforce TRIPS, or you are with the terrorists. Welcome to the
brave new world of trade negotiations, where every arcane clause is
infused with the self-righteousness of a holy war."


...it won't be the first time Richard Stallman has been called a
terrorist.

they say,  watch what they do,  and this is not a time for remarks
like that; there never is."        -- Ari Fleischer, on Bill Maher

Washington has asked Qatar to rein in the influential and
editorially independent Arabic al-Jazeera television station,
which gives airtime to anti-American opinions.  The emir of Qatar,
Sheikh Hamad Khalifa al-Thani, confirmed after a meeting with
US Secretary of State Colin Powell in Washington that he had
been asked to exert influence on the Qatari-based channel,
which can be received almost worldwide.

There are few places in the world where there is as much freedom of
speech as in the US.  True, it's not perfect.  It's under constant
attack.  It's more accessible to those with money, particularly those
with enough money to own their own media outlet.  But, for the most
part, it's there.

Nice to see that US government is intent on exporting our values...
