Is Antigua the next warzone?
 
I'd say yes:

A short initial post, but at least it's not about oil interest or remove nonfriendly dictator and put your own one conspiracies. It's about a different possibly the most interesting thing that happened on the global market that could have some serious consequences.

OK, when I first started reading this I saw WTO and I thought of those Caribean countries and the Online Gambling sites that the US blocked and that's what this is all about. I can't fathom why the WTO can't make an exception in trade regarding this and just exclude online gambling.

This is their answer? To allow online piracy? That $21m number I'm guessing is per IP considering the billions they are considered to be losing. That's right, a country of 90000 could make billions from online gambling from the US! The US could easily stop this too by blocking the IP addresses to its servers. Antigua should just stick to tourism and running and its other "legitimate" enterpirises such as casinos and offshore banking.

You mean US can breach General Agreement on Trade in Services and Antigua should just suck it in?
