At least the part of the world that uses air travel. That is huge portion of the world anyway you slice or dice it.
I mean..they want to fingerprint people that aren't even residents of the U.S. nor are they visiting the U.S. We are, according to the EU, Blackmailing them into accepting this little act of International Big Brotherism. From WaPo:
If approved by the European Parliament, the measure would mean that precisely identifying information on tens of millions of citizens will be added in coming years to databases that could be shared by friendly governments around the world.-You know we are friendly with everyone but the Axis of Evil guys. I like Sophie's take on this horseshit:
"It seems like a steamroller," said Sophie in 't Veld, a Dutch member of parliament who follows privacy and security issues. "There is a new trend in particular in the U.S., the E.U. and Australia to register every single detail of our life. We're tagged. They can follow everything we do. They know where we are. The whole question is: What for? Does this actually make the world a safer place?"
Of course it doesn't make us safer, its all about control...
