US government declares hacking an act of war, then hacks allies

By ASHESCHOW | JULY 1, 2013

In 2011, the Pentagon released its first formalcyber strategy, which called computer hacking from other nations an "actof war," according to the Wall Street Journal. In late June of this year,WSJ reported that Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, released informationalleging the U.S. government was hacking Chinese targets "that include thenation's mobile-phone companies and one of the country's most prestigiousuniversities."

Now that EU offices have been hacked by the U.S.government as well, one must wonder if that was an "act of war" onthe part of the United States.

We've technically been declaring war left and right on many people with embargos etc. Doesnt suprise me that we are now doing this with us carrying one of the biggest hypocritical foreign policies out there.

Our own belief systems. Far too few challenge their own assumptions, beliefs, or knowledge. Ignorance is bliss...
