I'm sending this to the asterisk list - consciously knowing it will piss
some people off but this is the most important business issue of the day
for anyone doing business in or with a US company.


Oh and before anyone on this list thinks of calling this OT - how about
Mark Spencer being arrested while travelling in a country like India or
the Middle East that has banned VOIP services (which is still illegal
because they cant tax it of course).


I don't know what you are going to be able to do with this information
but this has to be discussed as it affect the future of international
commerce when dealing with the USA.



Best intentions,

This is bullshit.

I don't know how to effectively express my outrage over this action by
the US government.


Check out these links for background info;



So basically we have a UK citizen, operating a UK business
(sportingbetplc.com board)
b6035fc855dabdde5c19b246>  who the moment he steps foot into the USA is
arrested, not for crimes he committed but for crimes committted by US

Oh and arrested under ambiguous Louisiana law, that defines all
interstate gaming as illegal.

I cant wait for the chairman of the NY Times to be arrested on a visit
to China because chinese citizens were reading copies of the NY Times on
the internet.

Oh and as for visiting 'unfriendly' countries, how about if Castro
started shooting american tourists he found in Cuba for 'crimes of
treason' in carrying US dollars in their wallets?

This is insane America. When are you going to wake up and begin to be a
good 'world citizen'?

You cant just arrest people for 'crimes against the state' that dont
even occur in your country........isn't that what terrorists do? Impose
their will against the world at large.

I keep hoping I will wake up and the insanity will end? it's like a bad
It's getting hard to tell who is the bad guys anymore.
