Cameron Says People Radicalized By Free Speech; UK ISPs Agree To Censor Button

ComputersKai Re:This is why... (316 comments)

But anyways, in all seriousness, it's kind of disappointing to see the UK do this, especially when they were the ones that initially implemented some of the ideals in our Bill of Rights.

The Disgruntled Guys Who Babysit Our Aging Nuclear Missiles

ComputersKai Re:Scale down the land based forces (176 comments)

Submarines and bombers do have to fly back and refuel...etc. These silos don't.
However, they are stationary, so submarines/bombers are obviously more mobile. But they'll have to come back eventually some time to base for one reason or another.

New GCHQ Chief Says Social Media Aids Terrorists

ComputersKai Re:Arab Spring? (228 comments)

Yes, isn't it interesting how just that time the media was touting the power of "social media networks" in organizing protests?
Funny how now they claim it "aids terrorists". Doesn't that sound like something, say, some certain oppressive dictators would say?

New GCHQ Chief Says Social Media Aids Terrorists

ComputersKai Re:Not a win (228 comments)

Yes, the the generalization of Muslims isn't exactly accurate, but that isn't the main idea here.

Regardless of whether the post is "politically incorrect" or not, the important thing to remember is that we may eventually become just like the "evil adversary" that we don't want to become, if we continue to go on sacrificing liberties for "safety".

Former Infosys Recruiter Says He Was Told Not To Hire US Workers

ComputersKai Re:Corporate Malfeasance (293 comments)

Well, this isn't that type of discrimination though; as mentioned above, it's more for financial reasons rather than the actual race being factored in.

Google Threatened With $100M Lawsuit Over Nude Celebrity Photos

ComputersKai Re:Not named? (225 comments)

Good point. It's like the lawyer is just randomly suing Google for hosting inappropriate pictures.

Correction. Not necessarily hosting, but providing a method to obtain access to those images.

Ebola Has Made It To the United States

ComputersKai Re:They need to lock this down now! (475 comments)

Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a West African country, where the disease is spreading, and later developed symptoms that suggested Ebola.

How is it that the airports, customs, and immigration allowed this to pass through in the first place? Wouldn't this have set off some sort of "warning"?

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

ComputersKai Re:they will defeat themselves (981 comments)

Killing them won't help; see reasons above.
The thing is, we're dealing with fanaticists here; they just wouldn't care enough. In fact, ISIS will probably just turn it into some propaganda over how many of their fighters have gone onto paradise or something.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

ComputersKai Re:they will defeat themselves (981 comments)

Is arming locals really that bad an idea though? Our problem in the past was that we picked religious zealots as our allies and armed them, while ignoring the not-so-religious ones we could have supported. Here with ISIS, we could arm the Kurds and support them; the Kurds are not terribly religious (not too different from your typical Sunday Christians here in the US), and are willing to fight ISIS, but we don't want to support them too much because we don't want them demanding their own state, because that works against our interest in keeping the region destabilized. If we stopped working towards keeping the region unstable, and instead helped out groups like the Kurds who want independence, which would make the whole region far more stable, groups like ISIS would die out.

Unfortunately, there are always going to be radicals, and eventually, some extremist is going to get the wrong idea and decide to start their own "terrorist state". Even the most peaceful religions, like Buddhism, have their radicals that go around pillaging.
