Personally, I have no problems with US control over the root. Having it
in the hands of a stable democracy with a mature legal system seems
preferable to that of a quasi-UN board, with unknown intentions and
difficult enforcement mechanisms. I prefer the devil I know, I suppose.

nationalistic thing for me]
What's important, though, is to not let the beast get out of control.
It's mandate should be limited to the technical issues, without policy
creep into areas beyond its scope.
