They said it was a technical problem with another company, or at least that is what they said. It was just the way the last pattern of hacks went so i suppose the real question is if the SEA could hack the nasdaq and just crash it would they tell investors or keep it quiet at all costs?

I dont like it as its a current good sourse of income for me.

If Syria are attacking our civilian networks I view that as the same as the sinking of the world war 2 supply convoys.

Could be a message, just a nod from across the street for all we really know. Missions completed by a single individual making his mark with the SEA. After that...on a signal, i suppose if no one buys the existence of the group then no one has an idea how many members it really has right?

Either way it make Syria a valid target as its classed as attacking UK/USA infrastructure. So my country needs to defend me

I guess, though i doubt this will amount to much but it is a bit ballsy to do right now.
Seems like someone giving out a nod to me.

That's the last piece that needed to be in place. It had to be either an E-4 or an E-6 in place to kick things off.

Best guesstimate, as I told someone the other day, if they stick to an airstrike mission, I'm guessing high single, low double digit casualties. If they send in tactical bombers, and gunships, higher. Syria has better defenses than any nation we've gone into in a long time, so it's going to be a hard fight.

Ok, how bad is it when you have to leave the country in secret?
Unconfirmed Report


Unconfirmed report: Syria's Assad makes surprise visit to Tehran
Al-Nahar news reports Syrian president lands in Iran with several gov't officials, family members. Earlier, UN official urges Iranian regime to influence Syria to go to peace talks with rebels

Published: 08.28.13, 00:32 / Israel News


Embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad arrived in Tehran, Iran in a surprise visit on Tuesday evening, al-Nahar news reported. The report has not been confirmed by any reliable source.

According to the Iranian state television, a source in the Iranian Foreign Ministry said that Assad's plane landed in Tehran's Khomeini Airport accompanied by several Syrian government officials and several members of his family. The report was unconfirmed by other sources.


Good time to retreat and retire? Russia has evacuated its people too.
Putin warned us not to arm "the flesh eaters".
Guess the only ones that have to die are the regular people.

Why do I have a feeling that in a few months we'll learn that Al Qaeda was responsible for gassing those people in order to bring in US involvement against Assad. It just doesn't seem right. A reported gas attack was dismissed, now one has been confirmed.

The rhetoric coming from the White House is sounding like the Bush Administration prior to the invasion of Iraq. Now they're saying that it's a direct threat against the US? Really? We've heard the BS before and it was more convincing then.

It's a civil war in which we have no real idea who these rebels are and yet we are going to come running to their aid? Something just doesn't seem right.

I don't think Russia or Iran are just going to stand by on this one. Putin doesn't seem like the kind of man that blinks...

He has been in power more or less since the invasion of Iraq.
This is just the last act of the Cold War now, the final deadly fruit.

He may not be, but right now his military is. They are hurting badly when it comes to capabilities. Their bomber force isn't in bad shape, but they'd be coming in unescorted as the Russian fighter fleet isn't in the best shape. Especially if there are F-22s in the region (which there are). Russian equipment on paper is amazing, and at airshows is amazing to watch, but in reality it's in bad shape. Their manufacturing took a huge hit when their engineers fled.

There was a story not long ago, that of 16 Su-34s that the Russian Air Force had at the time, the first two were grounded (probably permanently), and the other 14 had problems from radar, to navigation, to fire control. They said that if you pulled the same boards out of three different aircraft, the parts were put in different places on each board, or were in some cases on the wrong side of the board.

It is interesting that the Saudis are offering an oil deal to Russia if they back the strikes in Syria. I don't think Russia is hurting for oil and it makes the Saudis seem desperate.

The Saudis have a lot of US weaponry and could easily strike the Assad government, and yet they sit back, begging for international help. Funny that most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Nationals and the US went to war for 10 years with Iraq, a country that the Saudis didn't like. It's as if they've been playing us, but that couldn't be possible, they're one of our greatest allies in the region...right?

Soviet/Russian equipment was never that good to begin with, even during the height of the Cold War. The stuff they sold to other countries was even worse. Sure, they gave the world AKs and RPGs and, granted, during the Korean War, they did have the MIG...but otherwise, they've always been outmatched by the US/NATO forces. The only thing they had going for them was troop strength in which they could throw waves and waves against an enemy.

Their whole battle plan revolved around the wave attack, throwing poor equipment and prison troops in the first wave and then using progressively better troops and equipment with each successive wave. Eventually hoping to wear down the enemy.

The thing now is that they're in worse shape than they were during the Cold War. They're improving, and they're changing to a more Western model of quality over quantity, but they're in that inbetween ground where they're really hurting to be able to pull off much.

They spend $650 billion dollars a year on something....
I doubt it is pretty though.
