The UN Desires to Control the Internet

Following Political FootBall’s theme of the UN’s takeover bid of the internet, Steven DuBord wades in on the action.

“UN pirates sailed into Tunis this November 16-18, looking to take the helm of Internet supervision from U.S. hands.

Do you treasure the freedom to wade out into the vast sea of information that is the Internet and surf the World Wide Web? Then look out for what is coming over the horizon: a fleet of ships is bearing down on you and your little surf(key)board, and they are flying the blue Jolly Roger of the United Nations.

You will see among them such ships of state as Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Zimbabwe, hardly paragons of liberty and human rights. All of them are waving their cutlasses in outrage that the United States is refusing (for now) to relinquish its supervisory role over the private-sector, not-for-profit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Even the European Union has revealed its true colors and fired a broadside of protest against supposed U.S. dominance of the Internet. The captain of this bunch is none other than the UN secretary-general himself, Kofi ‘oil-for-food’ Annan.”

Heh, couldn’t have said it better myself…

“Now, Captain Annan has his eye trained on this map, looking not only for control of cyberspace, but for the buried treasure of taxing access to it. To this end, he convened the first World Summit on the Information Society in Geneva from December 10-12 of 2003, and also a second such summit this November 16-18 in Tunis.To get a good idea of what the summit in Tunis was all about, one need only pay heed to Senator Norm Coleman’s (R-Minn.) preview of the Geneva summit in the November 7, 2005 Wall Street Journal: “It sounds like a Tom Clancy plot. An anonymous group of international technocrats holds secretive meetings in Geneva. Their cover story: devising a blueprint to help the developing world more fully participate in the digital revolution. Their real mission: strategizing to take over management of the Internet from the U.S. and enable the United Nations to dominate and politicize the World Wide Web. Does it sound too bizarre to be true? Regrettably, much of what emanates these days from the U.N. does.” Sen. Coleman should know: his Senate investigation into the UN’s oil-for-food scandal has exposed the entrenched bureaucratic corruption of the world body.

Anti-American Audacity and Duplicity:

In “Make Way for the UNternet?” in our January 26, 2004 issue, this publication quoted the blunt statement of a UN official at the Geneva summit: “What we are looking at is the future management of the Internet. It’s [about] what is the best way to manage what has become a natural resource for all humanity.” The summit in Tunis took up where Geneva left off, holding fast to this course of audacity and duplicity.”

Indeed, the next big war will be fought with ‘boots on the ground’ in cyberspace. You can read the rest of his article at TNA Online.
