This is not entirely correct. Ampere is an SI base unit while Coulomb is a SI derived unit (defined as 1 C = 1 A s) - not the other way round.

What % of them actually cared about us enough to consider us as enemy in the first place? That is, before the drone attacks?
The article isn't very clear about this either.
Those legal principles and constitutional rights are certainly nice, but looking at FATCA, TSA and everything around "terrorism", copyright and taxation, fishing expeditions and profiling do seem to be the US tool of choice recently.
