"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

X.25 Re:Watch the F-35 get blown out of the skies (184 comments)

because the russian missiles worked so well in iraq in 1990 and 2003?

F-35 + electronic warfare will destroy the russian missile batteries

I certainly hope, for your sake, that your generals are smarter than you.

Maldives Denies Russian Claims That Secret Service Kidnapped a Politician's Son

X.25 Re:Consipricy nuts, go! (100 comments)

If you're going to throw around ad hominem attacks coupled with suppositions, you should attack the the Russian leader for hating the Ukraine for its perceived turn towards the power that has warrants out for his son.

Goebbels is proud.

NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"

X.25 Re:Actually they're saying they are going to watch (361 comments)

This is why a lot of political groups in the US are being labeled as extremists. Because there are some people in those groups that do crazy stuff like make bombs. Practically none of them do that but one out of a million does... and they need to watch for that.

There are some Americans that make bombs.

Better watch all of them. Just in case.

NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"

X.25 Re:Well, of course (361 comments)

Oh, irony.

See, a rational person would have looked at what's going and concluded that the NSA's position is "of course you're more likely to be an extremist" rather than "of course you must be an extremist". But self-styled "free-thinkers" such as yourself always seem to tend toward these extreme, paranoid views that barely resemble the actual situation. It's almost as if you tended towards extremism or something.

Kiddo, the "you're a conspiracy theorist" line doesn't work anymore.

You should really try something new.

The Latest Wave of Cyberattacks On the West Is Coming From the Middle East

X.25 An ad for some crappy company called FireEye (56 comments)

Oh look, a completely retarded "article" on a vendor site which just happens to sell 'solutions' to fight these "Middle Eastern attacks".

Get fucked Slashdot "editors", how could you even allow a piece of shit like that gets posted?

Sigh.

Firefox OS Powered Flame Available For Pre-order; Ships Globally

I can get a moto g for 179 $ that has more software, a quad core processor and a better screen. This won't cut it.

Apples. Oranges. And all that.

Jesus, now I understand why your leaders call you 'consumers' and not 'citizens' these days...

WikiLeaks: NSA Recording All Telephone Calls In Afghanistan

X.25 Re:Surprised Assange has no idea what censorship i (241 comments)

When you listen to them planning to kill you, and you fire a rocket at their car, it is war.

And I guess they're planning to "kill you" (whoever it might be) because...

"they hate you for your freedoms"

Right?

Why Lavabit Shut Down

X.25 Re:USA, the land of freedom (304 comments)

Not really. The US is not particularly dependent on foreign trade. Sure there would be some dislocations but it would likely remain a superpower.

I don't think you understand where those 17 trillion are coming from and how that game works.

I am not sure if you are a product of wishful thinking or you people seriously believe in what you say.

Water Cannons Used Against Peaceful Anti-TTIP Protestors: the Next ACTA Revolt?

X.25 Re:Protests were Illegal. (142 comments)

The law in Belgium states that it is illegal to hold public protests without authorisation from the municipality.

I guess introducing a law that requires citizens to jump off the bridges would sort that all out.

After all, laws should not be questioned or disobeyed. Ever. Because they are there to protect you.

Russia Bans US Use of Its Rocket Engines For Military Launches

I have no faith in our leaders here in the US or in the EU to stop Putin.

US finances a coup in Ukraine and stirs incredible shit, and you want someone to stop Putin?

I hope Vogon fleet comes soon, human race has really turned into complete retards.

New Zealand Spy Agency To Vet Network Builds, Provider Staff

X.25 Re:Majority Rules (92 comments)

As with the United States and Australia, the people of New Zealand (and other democracies and democratic republics) elect their government and thus have control over their politics.

One must assume that in all of these places, the majority agree with these policies.

Shocking? To me, but apparently, I'm not in the majority.

It is amazing how often idiots push this same line, without realizing a pretty major and catastrphic flaw.

But carry on, though.

US Government To Study Bitcoin As Possible Terrorist Threat

X.25 Re:Your tax dollars hard at work (210 comments)

FYI, all other electronic money transfers in the US are required to go through money laundering and terrorist funding checks. By law the bank isn't even allowed to tell you why you can't get your money, if the scan hits a positive.

Obama administration offers $27 million in additional help for Syrian rebels

Wonder how they'll transfer it...

American Judge Claims Jurisdiction Over Data Stored In Other Countries

X.25 Re:Slightly misleading... (226 comments)

The judge said that the warrant served on Microsoft is valid, meaning that Microsoft, which has control of the servers in Dublin, can be required to use its access to its own servers to turn over information within its control. Nothing Earth-shattering here.

Unless servers actually belong to a business entity registered in Ireland (Microsoft office there or whatever), which is subject to EU laws and regulations, not to US judge opinions and wisehs.

If server belongs to company registered in Ireland (regardless of who is the 'parent' company), they would likely be breaking EU laws and regulations if they would follow orders from US judge.

Do you have objections to Chinese judge ordering Huawei to disclose personal data of their US customers?

If you don't, I guess there is nothing to debate then.

I have problems with both, though.

Russia Writes Off 90 Percent of North Korea Debt

X.25 Re:Poke in the eye (234 comments)

This is just Putin's latest dumb parlour trick to stir up trouble and poke the West in the eye. He's just acting out.

You are a textbook example of how propaganda works and affects people.

I really wish you would at least became aware of it, at some point.

Study Finds US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy

X.25 Re:Terrible summary of an interesting paper (818 comments)

The original paper is an interesting approach to studying power balances.

The summary is puerile flamebait.

The actual conclusion of the paper is simply that the power in government is not concentrated in massive grassroots organizations or in direct electoral representation, but rather it is concentrated in the small-but-vocal interest groups and economically influential individuals. In other words, causes, no matter how big, don't really get power until they can pay enough to be taken seriously. That might mean lobbying, marketing, or awareness campaigns, but it still takes money to look like your cause has merit.

So, what you are saying is, summary is wrong because it calls shit a shit and not feces.

I get it.

ZunZuneo: USAID Funded 'Cuban Twitter' To Undermine Communist Regime

X.25 Re:USAID (173 comments)

USAID is suppose to be an aide organization. The moment they have to start laundering money they have gone off the reservation and entered CIA territory.

If you think USAID has ever been an "aid" organization, I have a bridge you might be interested in.

NASA Halts Non-ISS Work With Russia Over Ukraine Crisis

X.25 Re:Yes...but no (291 comments)

As a Dane im proud that the Secretary General of NATO and the Danish foreign minister is in front with sanctions against Russia. Putin is effectively destroying what has created lasting peace in Europe from the last 69 years. Putin will keep pushing, until we stand firm. Then he will pick as with someone else...even the gay community, anything that will take eyes of the fact that he rules the country like a dictator. But, the US Russian space cooperation was first initiated as a sign of good will. It will always stand as one of the greatest examples of respect, despite differences. I want to keep the space cooperation out of any foreign relations.

As a Serb that watched part of his country being taken away (while being bombed), let me tell you this:

Fuck you and your moral high-ground

I am so incredibly tired of heading/reading all the hypocrisy for the past 20 years. It appears people, in general, are really stupid and blind.
