Yes boss?

At the moment the U.S. is trying to press the Danish government to close down a TV-station sending from Denmark - in spite of the fact that:

  1. The TV-station is fully legal in Denmark.
  2. The Danish constitution forbids the government to do that. Only a court-decision or a new law can do that.

According to the Danish paper "Berlingske" the government has received what is called a demarch from USA saying: "We strongly urge the Danish government to close down ROI TV".

Apparently the U.S. government doesn't respect the sovereignty of other countries, not even a country having soldiers in Iraq.

If you are interested, here is a link to ROI TV's homepage:

The TV-station sends to millions of Kurds the world over.
