Riddle me this

Secretary of State John F’ing Kerry, who fought in the Vietnam war, is wanting to provide $60 million in assistance to the Syrian “opposition”. On February 21st, the Syrian “opposition” exploded a car bomb in Damascus on a busy public street near the Russian Embassy and Ba’ath party headquarters, killing 53 and injuring 200, mostly civilians and some children.

How do we rationalize that the US isn’t providing support to terrorists, beyond the “us” and “them” argument?

Is the Nobel Peace Prize Committee having second thoughts yet?

    Second verse, rhymes with the first: here is a riddle wrapped up in an cyberspace enigma –

      Oh yeah. I’ve made this point a number of times. It may well have been inevitable, but there is no moral high ground now for the US. I just blocked, another China Telecom probe of the server. As you know firsthand, you can’t access the server from many parts of the world.

      I’ve largely stopped testing streams unless I’m running sandboxed. It’s just too dangerous. The other day there was a new day zero exploit using Flash.

        I was once in a country that has a dictatorship with a long list of alleged human rights violations. I had brought my VOIP phone and over time called a number of friends back home in the states. They saw my Caller ID showing I was calling from my home number in the states.

        When I informed one of my ultra liberal friends where I was calling from, he seemed panic stricken and said “oh my! the NSA is listening to this call!” I started laughing and told him there were probably a dozen or two countries listening and I would be worried if mine was not among them.

        Its all a matter of perspective.

        Turns out to be in the news today… interesting article on transmission mechanism


        • Art Stone says:

          That’s all very interesting. That wasn’t done by even a Kevin Mitnick brainiac – it required knowledge across a number of different areas. It had to be one or more of our three letter agencies.

          I remember an attack very early on – someone was able to hijack the DNS for windowsupdate.microsoft.com, but they made a mistake that caused it to fail. Microsoft is always in reactive mode. I wouldn’t rule out Microsoft assisting creating Flame, but then being forced to pretend it was a surprise. If people began to believe Windows has deliberate back doors for easy government access, that could be very damaging.

    John Kerry – a fully qualified – hmmm qualified for what, exactly? The dumbing down of America has been underway for decades. My question is: Who is dumber? Kerry for being a pawn of the terrorists or us for supporting the administration that selected him.

    God I hate secretary ‘Shoe-Face’. You can tell he has had too much Botox. When he talks only his bottom lip moves. What an idiot.
    If someone hit him in the face with a 2 x 4, I swear he wouldn’t feel it !
    That botox must be eating his brain from is statements.
    They had a report of Christians that live in Syria, and they were protected by
    Bashar al-Assad. Now they are looking at leaving the country since we, (well the administration supports Muzzie extremist) cause I do not support the administration or the muzzie extremist, are helping in the overthrow of ala-Assad.

    Riddle me this: What’s all this radio talk today about Ryan Seacrestation? 😉

    • Art Stone says:

      Got me… Whatcha hearing?

      You may have noticed I don’t spend a lot of effort on music and this ensemble happy talk programming

        The morning after sequestration feels like the morning after Y2K… even may the birds are still alive and even singing!

        • Art Stone says:

          If it wasn’t for the US Forestry service, there would be no birds!

          I hear what you are saying but we need to factor-in the looming Continuation of Spending resolution….no budget in how many years now?

          Will the SHTF, or will the Republicans cave-in? My guess is the R’s will cave-in because of all the off-budget spending needs to continue.

          People, there’s Big Trouble ahead…..
