In the latest issue of TAC, which went to press yesterday, I’ve written a report about the possible legalization of online gambling in the U.S. Unfortunately, I missed this delightful little nugget, picked up by the Global Dashboard. It’s the extraordinary response of Casino Gambling Web — “the top online casino gambling news reporting association” — to Susan Rice’s recent speech to the UN.
The Obama Administration has made it known that he does not want the US to be viewed as troublemakers anymore throughout the world. On Wednesday, Susan Rice, the US Ambassador to the United Nations made it know that the US will work with the UN.
That is a completely opposite stance than the Bush Administration had, one in which they spurned any UN global efforts. The announcement Wednesday has many people in the online gambling industry believing that the move is another step towards legalized Internet gambling in the US. ….
Wednesday was a day of hope for anyone in the US who enjoys online casinos. There have been many of these days in the past six months, but with every clue that the US is trying to mend foreign relation ties, comes another wave of enthusiasm.
Quite. I mean, when the Obama administration makes noises about improving international co-operation, everybody knows that they are really talking about Internet poker. Faites vos jeux.
