COMMENT POSTED TO THE GUARDIAN

The American Justice Department had every right and reason to pursue the American branch of FIFA.

They have no right to go after Europeans and others.

The fact that Europeans are cooperating in arresting their citizens and sending them to the U.S. to stand trial is just further evidence of Europe’s pathetic acceptance of America’s right to govern Europe.

It is a terrible precedent, setting things up for ever greater intrusions into European affairs.

No one likes bent sports officials, but the issue of American laws applying in Europe is a far greater one than the issue of some bent sports officials.

America is using the public’s instinctive dislike in this matter to further drive its influence and power into Europe.
