Remember a couple years ago when we heard of the STuxnet virus
messing up Iran's nuclear devices?  There was much speculation
on who did it.  Most ppl figured it had to be a gov, cuz of the
sophisication.

Now it's out...

You probably heard of it long before me cuz of tv and radio.  Not
many radios over here cuz almost no one uses a car. We do
have cable tv and we get cnn international and a few other
news channels, but my grandson has the cartoons on most of the time.

Anyways, at first I was a bit uneasy about it also, but now I think
it's all part of the human drama. It concerns me more that the
whole world knows we did it, than that we did it.  Cheesy

Afterall, morally speaking, stuxnet is nothing compared to assasinating bin laden.
(basically we shot an unarmed man in the head, then dumped his body in the ocean, duh)

Interesting how we can justify our actions based on our hatred of the victim.

I actually don't read the paper, listen to the radio and pretty much only watch John Stewart. The vast majority of my news now comes from feeds and threads. Primarily I stay with TPM Election Wire, Taegan Goddard's Political Wire, CNN, PopSci, Wired and Time for my politics and world events. As a side note, if anyone has some really cool feeds you think I'd like, post 'em Smiley

I'm with you that I have no problem with us doing it (I have no problem with doing Osama either, he is not only unprotected by our constitution and international law, he has made clear he'd do it all again if he could). I'm a little creeped about the government's ability to squirrel up systems and networks. The Internet has become the new utility and all kinds of voices use it to coordinate and get the message out. While right wing anachronisms scream about their right to bear arms, I'm concerned that the government is quietly perfecting a new way of disrupting and controlling the populace.

Wondering if it's time to fire up the short wave and HAM set again ...
