  • Why cant people live in love,have respect for humanity… way too many lives are been waisted for all the wrong reasons, the bible says though shall not KILL!! but we disobay the laws of GOD…..
    so why is anyone to believe that there is going to be peace on earth, think again! this is revelation.

  • Good story. It is mindending to think of the number of people the CIA employs in monitoring, hacking and planting disinformation on the net.

    I’m sure the US would love to emulate the Indian Government’s recent wholesale blocking of bloggers, but such overt action would of course lead to questions about what the US actually means by ‘freedom’.

    It’s nothing new. About three years ago, a CIA agent was ‘outed’ on a small expat discussion forum I joined in Holland. It appears there was (maybe still is) a whole team based in Switzerland paid to post neo-con views to forums all over Europe.

    Back to the story and the point: the information war on the net is so vast that I suspect the American Government simply can’t counter all its opponents and has to shut a lot of sites down for expediency. The decision may seem odd here but, on a global scale, it’s understandable.
