MARK BRADY: Icelanders Reject the Banksters

http://hnn.us/blogs/entries/138341.html

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.
