Trade Wars 2000/4

The WTO ruled that the US is breaking trade agreements by prohibiting online casino gambling. Needless to say, the government is horribly afronted by another nation trying to tell us what to do! The fact that we elected to join the WTO and be subject to their rules is, in DubyaLogic(tm), immaterial.

Most clueless quote in the news (Republican Representative Goodlatte): "It cannot be allowed to stand that another nation can impose its values on the U.S. and make it a trade issue."

Gasp of Horror! Trade partners telling us what to do? How sinister! Such powers could never be used for good... Right?
