    US government declares hacking an act of war, then hacks allies

    US government declares hacking an act of war, then hacks allies

    By ASHESCHOW | JULY 1, 2013

    In 2011, the Pentagon released its first formalcyber strategy, which called computer hacking from other nations an "actof war," according to the Wall Street Journal. In late June of this year,WSJ reported that Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, released informationalleging the U.S. government was hacking Chinese targets "that include thenation's mobile-phone companies and one of the country's most prestigiousuniversities."

    Now that EU offices have been hacked by the U.S.government as well, one must wonder if that was an "act of war" onthe part of the United States.

    We've technically been declaring war left and right on many people with embargos etc. Doesnt suprise me that we are now doing this with us carrying one of the biggest hypocritical foreign policies out there.

    War on terror, war on crime, war on drugs, war on Christmas... I mean, what aren't we at war with?

    Our own belief systems. Far too few challenge their own assumptions, beliefs, or knowledge. Ignorance is bliss...

    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
