"People will ask: 'Do the Americans want to control the Internet?'" Washington's decision, announced Thursday, departs from previously stated U.S. policy.

I think this might be good but not for all of the world just the United States. The reason why I say that is because another attack could be forming over some chat room or website and no one knows about. But if the US was watching traffic they might pick it up and stop it from happing.

I know this is :thumbsup: but I like your avatar KoanYorel
