The USA is fighting back against state-backed cyber-hackers from distant lands by upping their own defensive and offensive capabilities.

About 10 years too late, but still...

The Post reported on plans for creation of three types of forces under the Cyber Command. Two are familiar: “combat mission forces” to serve in parallel with military units and “protection forces” to defend Pentagon networks. A third area is new: “national mission forces” that would seek to head off any threat to critical infrastructure in the United States, such as electrical grids, dams and other potential targets deemed vital to national security. These “national mission forces” are expected to operate outside the United States, perhaps launching preemptive strikes on adversaries preparing to take down an American bank or electric grid.

Thirty years of increasingly chaotic economic mismanagement by the Mugabe regime in Zimbabwe has brought Africa's former "breadbasket" to the perilous predicament of having just $217 left in its bank account.

The debt-ridden USA and most of the countries of Europe ought to take note; you're not immune to the laws of economics, either.More >>

Adding insult to injury. Lawyer Sergei L. Magnitsky was investigating the kleptocratic habits of the Russian state when the regime poked back. His supporters claim he was beaten and refused medical treatment in prison... and so he died.

But death wasn't enough for the regime.

Judge Igor B. Alisov promptly postponed the trial because the defendants did not appear in the courtroom — as expected — but neither did lawyers representing their interests.

Posthumous criminal cases are rare in international practice, most often allowed only when relatives want to clear the name of a suspect, and rarely at the behest of the police, criminal law experts say. When a suspect dies, the question of guilt or innocence is usually rendered moot.

There's this war going on in Afghanistan. Maybe you've heard of it. Captain Wales AKA Prince Harry fights on the frontline against the Taliban as an Apache attack helicopter pilot. He was shooting at the kind of scumbags (if not the exact scumbags) who like to disfigure women with acid, poison little schoolgirls, behead teachers, machine-gun aid workers, execute innocent families and -- last but not least -- try to kill him and his fellow soldiers every day.

For this, he's taking flak?

The frank admission from Harry that he had personally killed enemy fighters drew a backlash from anti-war activists, some former soldiers and the Taliban themselves.

It is unusual for returning soldiers with any kind of profile to highlight their achievements in killing enemy fighters.

Seriously?More >>

Many innocent hostages died in the Algerian army assault against the Al Qaeda-held oil facility this week. As previous such actions have shown, negotiating just gives terrorists time to consolidate their position and commit torture or executions at their leisure. Ultimately, the scumbags who took the hostages in the first place were responsible for all of the deaths that occurred.

“There are a good 20 bodies,” a senior Algerian official said of the grim discoveries at the site on Sunday, a day after a final assault ended the siege. “These must be identified.”

 

Once they are, the preliminary count of 23 dead hostages seemed certain to rise, officials acknowledged.

“I’m very afraid that the numbers are going to go up,” the Algerian communications minister, Mohamed Saïd Oublaïd, told France 24 Television.

The story thus far: the jihadis try to take over Mali, a land-locked country in Northern Africa. They're consolidating rule over the northern part and streaming into the south when the French get involved. To avoid taking on the French directly, they invade Algeria and take hostages at an oil refinery.

For a start, it only reinforces the general perception throughout Africa and the West that the rebel fighters are savages who must be resisted, while doing little to undermine the French will to stay on the offensive. More significantly, this criminal act risks widening the number of enemies the rebels must face. By violating Algerian sovereignty, the Malian Islamists risk drawing into the conflict against them the Algerian armed forces, which repressed an Islamist uprising on their own soil in the 1990s with considerable brutality and effectiveness. And by kidnapping Americans, they could well lead to the deployment of U.S. Special Operations Forces to rescue the hostages and assist the French. Thus the rebels have actually handed a gift to their enemies.

Hostages include Japanese, Britons, French, Americans, Malaysians and Norwegians (Good news: 20 hostages have already escaped) -- helping prompt international support to wipe out the savages that...More >>

Then you might as well start acting like one. Thank you, France, for demonstrating that civilized countries need not stand by acting nice and civilized while barbarians overrun vast territories.

Vive la France, in Mali.

More than 400 French troops have been deployed to the country in the all-out effort to win back the territory from the well-armed rebels, who seized control of an area larger than France nine months ago. What began as a French offensive has now grown to include seven other countries, including logistical support from the U.S. and Europe. The United States is providing communications and transport help, while Britain is sending C17 aircrafts to help Mali’s allies transport troops to the front lines.More >>
