Hi Brandon,

Thanks for your email, brother!

You put forward a good objection for this proposal.

...i think the proposal is a wise idea, but imho it can
 not touch the root-causes of the problem at hand.

It seems to be the same approach as the anti-shutdown
 DPP (Draft Policy Proposal) [1].
[1]: <>

Applying sanctions to a country has side effects... :'-(

To figure it out, one should look at the below scenario:

1] This draft proposal reaches a rough consensus
2] A selection is done to build the Operational Team (OT)
3] The OT agrees on a rough consensus on the
decision to apply specific sanctions on a given
country government's Internet infrastructure used
to spread their "propaganda" globaly...
4] The OT implements the consensual decision
5] The Internet's infrastructure of that ccGov is
shutdown. No more trafic from it to the Internet!
6] That ccGov decides to cut the rest of the
Internet's interconnexions of their country to the
7] The whole country is unreacheable from the Internet
8] That ccGov is the only source of "information"
 within their country boundaries
9] ...

As the draft proposal seems to target cc Governments,
 practically speaking, then what if the policy-decision
 to be implemented concerns the usGov?
