As ASSad continues with the Ramadan Massacre of his own people and The West umms, ooh & ahhs before deciding to issue a statement, the enterprising hacktivists of Anonymous took control of the Ministry of Defence’s website today, posting images of dead protesters with the following message, as the snapshot of the website shows:
To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side – tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the more violent they are, the more fragile they become. We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face of the regime’s brutality, and admire your willingness to pursue justice, not mere revenge. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next.
To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country – rise up against the regime! – Anonymous

Considering that the US have already had their law enforcement intranets already hacked The Akh wonders how long before the supposedly untouchable pentagon get hit?
Seeing we’re in the era of 4GW (fourth generational warfare) where private robot armies are fighting it out as technological advances open the way for the clashes of DIY terminators, imagine what would happen if someone sitting in their bedroom on the other side of the world hacked into and took control of the hunter killer terminators?
The yanks aren’t letting on, but their F-35s have joined the F-22s in being “stood down”. Electrical problems should be read in the same vein as you’d hear that the helicopter suffered “technical problems” IT WASN’T SHOT DOWN!
The GI Joe era is done.
All you need is a handful of nerds to win you the war.
