    From the first point of view, as in the US being indignant, it's perfectly understandable and justified. Who would want to be hacked anyways? Realpolitiks always underlie "moral diplomacy" and the US has been as worse as an offender as China, the old Soviet Union, and such.
    From the third point of view, of course, the whole thing is very much hypocritical. The US public was indifferent and the Israelis cheered when Stuxnet showed up, but if the Iranians did a Stuxnet of their own, the US would have been outraged and the Israelis would have declared war after a massive airstrike. Understandable and justified. To one's interest that one works.

    I would not want to be a citizen of Australia, or New Zealand, in the near future.

    Sequester?... Childs play in comparison to this red flag warning by DC.
    Problem is, this story is just not 'sexy' enough. We need an affair, Kim Kardashian and someone calling someone else a "poo-poo head," in order to get any attention, unfortunately.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
