Friday as deadline for Antigua, Us agreement

Will this finally be the end of these discussions? I seriously doubt it. It seems that nothing can be resolved and just keeps getting shoved back another month or so.

Washington and this tiny Caribbean nation have set a new deadline of Friday to resolve their dispute over Internet gambling, according to the islands' top finance official.

Antigua accuses the U.S. of crippling its gambling industry by banning Americans from placing online bets with gambling operators, including those based in the twin-island country of just 70,000 inhabitants.

On June 6, a World Trade Organization deadline passed without resolution. The WTO last year backed Antigua's request to target U.S. services, copyrights and trademarks in retaliation for a U.S. online betting ban --but ruled it could impose only $21 million in annual trade sanctions.

It would totally surprise me if this reaches an agreement any time this year, let alone meeting the friday deadline.
