Antigua & Barbuda Wages War Against US Jihad on Internet Gambling

Antiguabarbuda3The World Trade Organization, which is the organization that deals with world trade, has agreed to look into the U.S. Government’s jihad on online gambling, as Antigua and Barbuda (represented in this year’s Miss Universe contest by the girl seen here) continues to argue that U.S. laws restricting online wagering violate free-trade rules.

The little Caribbean nation with a population of 67,000 has been battling the U.S. for several years now at the Geneva-based WTO, which is the acronym for the organization that deals with world trade. Antigua and Barbuda has staked much of its economic growth on the online gambling business, with 30 licensed betting firms operating from within its shores and an overwhelming majority of bets coming from American citizens. With the recent U.S. shut down of BetonSports and legislative assaults from mujahideen like Osama Goodlatte and Ayman al-Leach, Antigua and Barbuda is becoming increasingly concerned about its financial future and may seek sanctions against the U.S. after it missed an April deadline to stop discriminating against offshore online wagering businesses.

“The United States has been passing legislation that is directly and unequivocally contrary to the ruling of the DSB,” Antigua officials said in a statement to the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body.

“The issue of compliance (with the ruling) was clear, limited and straightforward,” the U.S. said in a statement to the WTO. “We are now in a position to show that our prohibitions apply to both foreign and domestic suppliers (of gambling services).”

The WTO panel has 90 days to reach a verdict.

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before
    writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your
    next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
