Big bucks to ensure perpetual war: The new American oligarchs | Middle East Eye There is literally nothing about the war on terror that isn’t or hasn’t been an inside scam. From Iraq’s missing billions to no-bid government contracts that funneled nearly $40bn of taxpayer money into Dick Cheney’s Haliburton alone, America’s endless war has enriched a select few at the expense of the US Treasury - like had the investment banker titans of the 20th century, and the robber barons the century before that. Paul Krugman, a Nobel prized economist, once quipped that, “America is a country that has gone from a country that made stuff to a country that makes stuff up.” While Krugman was specifically referring to economic inequalities, the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top, caused by Wall Street “financial engineering”, his quip could equally apply to America’s burgeoning homeland security-industrial-complex. The US federal budget now allocates more than $60bn to homeland security. NBC’s go-to-terrorism-expert guy is Evan Kohlmann.

The Evidence That North Korea Hacked Sony Is Flimsy A poster for the movie “The Interview” is taken down by a worker after being pulled from a display case at a Carmike Cinemas movie theater, Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014, in Atlanta. Georgia-based Carmike Cinemas has decided to cancel its planned showings of “The Interview” in the wake of threats against theatergoers by the Sony hackers. David Goldman/AP Today Sony canceled the premiere of “The Interview” and its entire Christmas-Day release of the movie because of fears that terrorists might attack theaters showing the film. The actions show just how much power the attackers behind the Sony hack have amassed in a short time. 1 The New York Times reported this evening that North Korea is “centrally involved” in the hack, citing unnamed U.S. intelligence officials. Other theories of attribution focus on hacktivists—motivated by ideology, politics or something else—or disgruntled insiders who stole the data on their own or assisted outsiders in gaining access to it. The Interview a Red Herring?

Piratage de Sony : pourquoi est-il très peu probable que la Corée du Nord soit à l’origine de l’attaque Le hacker nord coréen identifié par la NSA aurait un ordinateur à roulettes et une souris avec un gros bouton rouge, ça fiche la trouille non ? Sony aurait-il été une victime collatérale d’un conflit 100% asiatique ? Le piratage de l’entreprise fait pourtant son petit effet dans l’administration américaine et dans les médias. C’est forcément la culture de la plus grande puissance du monde libre qui est agressée, même si Sony est une entreprise japonaise, on apprécie d’y voir une vision fantasmée des studios hollywoodiens, ceux qui nous vendent du rêve et de la liberté, rêve et liberté que nous achetons les yeux fermés. Quel ennemi de la liberté pourrait bien s’en prendre à la culture du monde libre sinon la Corée du Nord ? Ainsi, la police fédérale a découvert plusieurs adresses IP (ndlr : le numéro d’identification d’un ordinateur connecté à internet), étant associées à des infrastructures nord-coréennes connues. 1 point blanc = 1 hacker nord coréen Vous avez dit manipulation politique ?

La Corée du Nord, cet ennemi de paille pour durcir le contrôle d'Internet Qui peut croire une seule seconde après y avoir réfléchi une seule minute que la Corée du Nord est derrière le piratage des serveurs de Sony Pictures ? Comme le détaille Reflets, l'affirmation d'un rapport du FBI selon lequel la dictature communiste serait directement impliquée dans l'attaque subie par le studio de cinéma ne résiste pas à un examen sérieux des faits et des circonstances. S'il ne faut qu'un seul argument pour se convaincre que les Nord-coréens n'ont pas attaqué Sony pour le dissuader de sortir le film The Interview, il suffit de constater que la scène la plus contestée par le régime de Pyongyang a été piratée et mise en ligne. Même en imaginant que la Corée du Nord serait à ce point déconnectée des réalités qu'elle en ignorerait l'effet Streisand qui accompagne désormais toute tentative de censure, il serait carrément idiot de sa part de pirater et diffuser elle-même ce qu'elle prétend faire disparaître. Mais qu'importe la vérité. "Nous répondrons.

The Great SIM Heist: How Spies Stole the Keys to the Encryption Castle AMERICAN AND BRITISH spies hacked into the internal computer network of the largest manufacturer of SIM cards in the world, stealing encryption keys used to protect the privacy of cellphone communications across the globe, according to top-secret documents provided to The Intercept by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. The hack was perpetrated by a joint unit consisting of operatives from the NSA and its British counterpart Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ. The breach, detailed in a secret 2010 GCHQ document, gave the surveillance agencies the potential to secretly monitor a large portion of the world’s cellular communications, including both voice and data. The company targeted by the intelligence agencies, Gemalto, is a multinational firm incorporated in the Netherlands that makes the chips used in mobile phones and next-generation credit cards. In all, Gemalto produces some 2 billion SIM cards a year. “It’s unbelievable. GCHQ slide.

News - Cyber-chantage SONY: « Heureusement que ces types n’étaient pas là quand Chaplin a fait « Le Dictateur » Details Category: BUSINESS RISK Des Cyber-attaques à la Cyber-censure « Heureusement que ces types n’étaient pas là quand Chaplin a fait « Le Dictateur » Contrairement à ce que beaucoup pensent, ce n'est pas l'ampleur de la cyber-attaque portée sur Sony à la mi décembre 2014 qui impressionne, techniquement cela fait des années que l'on pratique des cyberattaques. La première conséquence de cette cyber-attaque, ce n'est pas l'argent perdu, la réputation entachée, les mails dévoilés ou même le pays accusé (2)... mais la peur. Cyber-fascisme ? La cyber-dictature s'installe En cédant aux contraintes des cyber-attaquants, Hollywood et le monde entier s'auto-censurent et privent des millions de spectateurs, demain téléspectateurs, lecteurs, amateurs d'art... d'oeuvres culturelles "critiques" ou "rebelles qui seront interdites à la diffusion sous la pression de cyber-attaquants venus de nulle part mais habilement "pilotés". Comment réagir ? La résistance est évidemment possible.

China and Mongolia clash over how to exploit the Gobi desert The Gobi Desert in East Asia conjures images of a remote landscape, with nomads riding across the steppe. In fact, today it is home to herders and farmers, the world’s fastest-growing economy, vast copper and gold mines and is China’s main domestic energy source. The imagined expanses and agro-pastoral livelihoods exist alongside mountains of coal, modern cities, desert agriculture and environmental challenges to its viability and future well-being. As Chinese president Xi Jingping arrives in Mongolia to discuss a series of trade and energy deals that would give Mongolia better access to global markets, it is worth looking at the shared desert that lies between Beijing and Ulaan Baatar. As the two nations work together, reconciling differences in the Gobi will be a major challenge. At 2.3m km2 the Gobi is the world’s third largest desert, covering most of Mongolia and much of northern China.
