What Something?

Make your own, losers.

EU spokesman Martin Selmayr said a new cooperation model was important "because the Internet is a global resource."

"The EU ... is very firm on this position," he added.
That role has historically gone to the United States, which created the Internet as a Pentagon project and funded much of its early development. The U.S. Commerce Department has delegated much of that responsibility to a U.S.-based private organization with international board members, but Commerce ultimately retains veto power. (emphasis added)
Ok, ok. So, aside from my tax dollars, I personally had nothing to do with creating the internet (and no, I will not interject a cheap shot at Algore at this juncture) but I still think that if the EU, or anyone else, wants control over it, they should just invest the capitol and make their own.

Seriously, what's stopping them from creating their own highly interconnected set of servers? I mean, besides the obvious lack of investment capitol in their strangled socialist utopias. We've already blazed the trails. The template is right here for everyone to see. The hardware and software are available, so what's stopping them?

Demands like these generally come from losers. Now I'm not saying that all Europeans are losers. Just the ones that want something for nothing. You have what we want, so give it to us! (Cue stomping of petulant little feet.)

Grow up and do something productive for the world instead of just trying to mooch off the US taxpayers. We've got plenty of those types right here in our own country. We really don't need any more. But thanks anyway.
