And I cannot wait to learn who really shot down MH 17.
I usually don't take sides, but it must be the side who doesn't let anybody else approach and destroys the evidence?
I think you're forgetting that they invaded Georgia when George W. Bush was president.
It wasn't much of an invasion though, they couldn't even reach Alabama or Tennessee.
Remember, Netflix actually offers installing their servers within the ISP's network for free, which would mean no interconnection.
And, finally, this is 1 week old "news for nerds". I have read about it in so many tech sites, I was certain it would be a dupe (but a quick search seems to indicate it is not).
Similarly, bailing out one of the worst-performing car manufacturers in the world is not a good idea, no matter how big they are. Turns out there were deep-rooted reasons they were doing so bad, including incompetence, negligence, malice etc.
And you should not even stop there. Protectionism is bad in other areas too, not just regarding corporations. For example subsidizing a crop that is not useful will lead to all sorts of cascading effects, like a nation replacing sugars with what looks like an unhealthier substitute, or the ethanol craziness, or in other cases the casual destruction of the extraneous production etc.
But in any case I think the context made it clear what you should be expecting....
