Ramblings of an old Doc

 

I was cruising around and found this not-so-new item, but one which does not portend well.

Not about net neutrality which looks like it's moribund, no, this one is about Russia having plans for an alternate internet involving China, Brazil, India and South Africa.

This is allegedly to insure everyone involved against NSA hacking. Sometimes you have to laugh from irony, though.

"Brazil is set to finalize a 34,000-kilometre undersea fiber-optic cable by 2015 that will run from Vladivostok, Russia to Fortaleza, Brazil, via Shantou, China, Chennai, India and Cape Town, South Africa. According to the Hindu, the project will create, “a network free of US eavesdropping,” which via legislative mandates will also force the likes of Google, Facebook and Yahoo to store all data generated by BRICS nations locally, shielding it from NSA snooping." - InfoWars

McAfee is also coming out with a gadget named "Decentral" ($100) which will thwaert the NSA. Sure it will.

The other joke is that the FSB/GRU, etc. will be part of that internet...so pick your poison, and I wouldn't bet that these new cables won't be monitored by the NSA on short order, as well.

Then, there are others who think it's more because they plan attacks on the internet's backbone, themselves.

So much for today's Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy.

the project will create, “a network free of US eavesdropping,”

And I can expect to stand in a room of 1,000 people for a few hours and no one is going to "tootie-toot"...

Of course not.  The clean air act and people wholly supporting crowd based etiquette will ensure that.

Seriously, why would the US spend millions on tech to listen in to Russian Internet when it has hundreds of embedded spies over there who just have to keep their eyes and ears open?  I mean, tech breaks down, doesn't it?  Yes, I suppose spies get shot for espionage in Russia, but wouldn't it be cheaper  - and simpler - just to send in a replacement spy.... given the cost of some of those gadgets.

Personally, I think it would all be much simpler if all the spy agencies got together once a month and: "Look, this is what we're up to right now, anybody got any ideas or advice?  And who else has people on the inside watching the Hari Krishnas jumping all about and chanting in code all the secrets of the world's leaders?".

Frankly, I don't give a rat's arse what our international neighbours are doing.  So long as they come knocking on the door wanting to borrow a cup of uranium, I don't wanna know. 

Mind you, though, I would be interested to know if that bloke over in Korea really gets it 6 times a week, or is it just propaganda to make him look more studly.   I mean, with a haircut like that, and a head to match, he needs something to boost his image/persona, right!!

Is ok. Bing news is running an article that seems to indicate that we'll soon have our very own secret police, imagine that, to guard against the "Deep State". Can anyone say Gestapo.

Can anyone say Gestapo.

I can say it, but I was rather hoping that sort of thing was a long-gone extinction level event.  That kind of evil should never exist in this day and age, but sadly, there are those who would not bat an eye if it were permitted to become a reality again.  I won't mention names because I don't want my thoughts being interpreted as political, I'm just seeing the lunacy and evil for what it is.  However, there are powerful people in the world who'd have no compunction or hesitation whatsoever to commit atrocities on their fellow man.

Sadly, I think we're on the brink of another major war because the world has too many powerful lunatics getting into out of control pissing contests, with any modicum of sense fast flowing out the window along with the urine.

Could you post a link to that please?.

What, to the lunacy or to the pissing contest?  

Hehe, the NSA [Naughty Schoolboys Association] [of which I have been a proud member since 1959] has announced its endeavours to tap the phones of politicians worldwide to find out where our pollies get all their naughty and illegal shit from.

Personally, I think this is a great move.  I mean, why should naughty and illegal shit remain in exclusivety to bent politicians?    I could never envisage myself ever paying for it, but I'd like to know where the pollies go for high-priced call girls.... just in case.  I'd also like to know where pollies buy their under-the-counter weed.  Not that I wanna get bent or anything, but I've been trying small quantities of weed [on medical advice] o help with vertigo, nausea and pain.  And where'd be the best place to go to get it.... where the pollies go, obviously.

Another thing I'd like to do is get the FBI [Fracking Bastard-Politicians Investments] to locate where pollies stash their ill-gotten gain in overseas bank accounts, and siphon it off bit by bit until I have more of their money than they do.
