Preparations for a very uncertain future. . .

Pentagon Declares Internet a “War Domain” – I Told You So

A while back (1/29/11, to be precise), I wrote a little blurb on how you should download and save any critical information you now access via the internet because, one day, the internet as you knew it will have been ‘shut down’ or curtailed ‘for national security reasons’.  I received a few emails after that story chiding me on my ‘paranoia’.  This week, a story on The Hill website was sweet vindication.

It seems that the Pentagon will play an ever increasing role in policing the internet – ostensibly, searching for evil hackers who would unleash upon our country’s infrastructure a virus or worm that would wreak havoc (kind of like the ‘stuxnet’ virus we unleashed on the Iranian nuclear arms program computers).  I say ostensibly, because, undoubtedly, these assets will be used to expand the already monstrous ‘snoop-state’ maintained by the DHS, NSA, et al.  But don’t be alarmed.  Nothing to see here.  Just the .gov ‘protecting us’.  Go back to sleep.

Be safe. Be Prepared.
