MARK BRADY: Icelanders Reject the Banksters


In Saturday's referendum Icelanders rejected their government's plan that required Icelandic taxpayers to bail out foreign investors. The British and Dutch governments are not happy.

Iceland has a history of resisting outside domination, of which a notable example was the 1949 anti-NATO riot. U.S. troops finally left Iceland in 2006. Of course, Koreans and Japanese (and many other peoples) are still waiting for the U.S. military to leave their countries.

For a different perspective that emphasizes the role of communists, see the work of Por Whitehead.
