It's all of you. This is in your best interest. We just want to make sure you don't do anything bad with your freedom. We're your training wheels. Doesn't that feel nice, that smooth stable ride along the ground? You don't want to take them off do you? The ground is very very hard. What if you should fall?

Don't mention it! That's what we're here for. Even when the schools that teach our children are under staffed and in a state of gross disrepair, even if 10% of our population is unemployed, and 30% are under employed, even if no one has health care and people are starving in our streets... we're here for YOU.


*seriously though, if I were you I'd make about as big a deal out of this as you can. support the outrage. the world needs to stand up to America, and if governments won't do it, then their people can. U.S. Out of Norway.

Don't know if this is getting reported at all in America (I'm guessing not), but there's been a bit of a scandal lately in my own country, Norway, regarding American surveillance.

Earlier this month a newsstory broke that the US has established a secret surveillance service in Norway, hiring former police officers to spy on Norwegian citizens. This is, of course, illegal according to Norwegian law. This has gone on with the knowing of the police and PST, the Norwegian security service. The question is to what extent the Norwegian government knew about this. They deny it, and based on the secrecy of the whole operation (spying from anonymous flats etc) I believe them.

Similar things have been uncovered in Switzerland back in 2000, and in Denmark. The reactions have been a bit varied - our government is clear in condemning the surveillance as illegal, but there seems to be little in the way of actual repercussions. Most likely this will have no actual consequences at all, as I don't think we have the power to actually do anything. There's even some rightwing characters who have the audacity to suggest that the Norwegian government is to blame here, for having laws that makes it more difficult for America to do these sort of things and especially for daring to react when they're being done anyway. It's pretty scary.

Hope my English isn't too bad, I'm pretty worked up over this and I've tried to make it as understandable as possible.


why can't the norwegian government arrest the former police that are working for the u.s. and charge them with treason? spying on citizens of your own country for a foreign country sounds like treason to me. that would certainly discourage spying for the u.s.
