I'll tell you whats going on.... The U.S. is about to legalize online poker, possibly casino's too.
So you open up gaming in your country... But, how do you get anyone to join a no name poker room or casino with little to no traffic??
Answer is extremely simple. Eliminate the competition...
I highly doubt they will bother with any of the other gaming sites. They wont be worth the bother. The time and
it would take, would not justify the effects in return. Go after the big fish. Even if the charges dont hold up, you've taken them offline (at least to US players) long enough to get your own business up and running.
