Who needs WMD? No. Korea amassing cyber army.

Written by fox news on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  In the latest aggression against the west, Pyongyang is amassing a cyber army designed to wreak havoc around the globe.  We the People need to be ever vigilant.

Fox News:  WASHINGTON –  North Korea’s effort to build a cyberarmy that can conduct a string of attacks on neighboring states has experts asking some key questions:

Is Pyongyang gearing up for a cyberassault on the United States?  Does it have the capability?

“They do have the capability, obviously,” says Alexandre Mansourov, a visiting scholar at the U.S.-Korea Institute at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “But I don’t think they have the intention.”

But not everyone is so unsure. Like the Cold War in the 1950s and ’60s, cyberwarfare is becoming an arms race. Many nations, including the United States, are building up their offensive and defensive capabilities amid an increase of espionage and a proliferation of attacks on public and private computer networks.

Experts say the number of attacks on South Korea over the last five years looks more like a coordinated war than the work of random hackers. This has some officials in the U.S. girding for a broader fight.

A happy ending...inshallah

Written by Fox News on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  Well, well, well...it seems there are at least 21 murderous jihadis that won't be around anymore. 

During a training exercise in Iraq today, an instructor was apparently giving a lesson on what never to do when building a car bomb; sadly for him and his students, a little poetic justice ensued and they are now candidates for Jeff Dunham's comedy routine.  I love a happy ending, don't you?

Fox News:  BAGHDAD –  Militants accidentally set off their own car bomb Monday at a training camp in the countryside north of Baghdad, leaving 21 dead and resulting in two dozen arrests, Iraqi officials said.

In the city of Mosul to the north, meanwhile, the speaker of parliament — one of the most prominent Sunni officials in Iraq — escaped unhurt from a roadside bomb attack on his motorcade.

Car bombs are one of the deadliest weapons used by the Al Qaeda breakaway group in Iraq that dominates the Sunni insurgency in Iraq, with coordinated waves of explosions regularly leaving scores dead in Baghdad and elsewhere across the country.

Body count climbing in N. Korea executions

Written by Fox News on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  Proving over and over again just how demented he is, No. Korean tyrannical dictator Kim Jung Un is completely wiping out the family, (children included) of his uncle.  This is what communism is.

Fox News:  North Korea ruler Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered that all blood relatives of his executed uncle be put to death, continuing an apparent purge of all he sees as threats to his reign. 

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency, citing multiple sources, reported Sunday that "extensive executions" of relatives of Jang Song-thaek had been carried out. 

"All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including even children," one source told Yonhap. Among those reported dead were Jang's sister Jang Kye-sun, her husband and Pyongyang's ambassador to Cuba, Jon Yong-jin, and the North Korean ambassador to Malaysia, Jang Yong-chol, a nephew of Jang, as well as his two sons.

In addition, Yonhap reported that the sons, daughters, and grandchildren of Jang's two brothers were executed as well. 

Jang Song-theak, an uncle of Kim Jong-un by marriage, held some of the most powerful positions in North Korea before he was arrested and put to death on December 12 of last year on charges of contemplating a military coup to overthrow the young dictator.

Hamas says 'Third Intifada' imminent

Written by Arutz Sheva on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  Well, that fun loving leader of Hamas, Hassan Yousef, is at it again.  Fresh out of an Israeli prison, he claims the next, (third) intifada is a matter of time.  For the life of me, I don't understand why they release such monsters.  All the negotiating in the world doesn't stop these lying, murderous, animals.  

However, it is very worth noting that as you'll see, Mr. Yousef's son long ago recognized the err of his father's ways, became a Christian, and a spy for Israel.  Given the fate that awaits him should he ever show his face near any Hamas controlled area, I just pray that he remains safe and well hidden.

Arutz Sheva:  Just one week after he was released from an Israeli prison, Hamas leader Hassan Yousef said on Sunday that a third Arab armed uprising - or intifada - is just a matter of time.

Speaking to Channel 2 News, Yousef said that Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas does not represent anyone other than himself.

"All the organizations of the Palestine Liberation Organization, as well as Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, are opposed to negotiations with Israel," he declared.

“The intifada will not wait for anyone,” warned Yousef. “If it doesn’t happen today then it will happen tomorrow, if not this month then next month. Eventually - just as the First Intifada and the Al-Aqsa Intifada broke out - another one could break out.”

Yousef also warned Israel against starting a war in Gaza in response to the increased rocket fire at southern Israel in recent weeks.

"It would be madness if Israel launches a war with Gaza,” he said, adding that “media reports in Israel that Hamas is upgrading its military abilities and experimenting with missiles in the sea will make some of the Israeli people go underground.”

Yousef’s son is Mossab Yousef, who admitted spying for Israel between 1997 and 2007.

This 'Olive Branch' comes with thorns

Written by Arutz Sheva on . Posted in World News

Publisher's note:  I think my head is going to explode.  All of a sudden President Rouhani of Iran is warming the room to extend the hand of friendship?!  Does anyone with even half an ounce of common sense believe or trust him or his government?!  I’m reminded of a song from a long time ago by WAR, (the irony is laughable considering I’m talking about Iran).  

Let me remind everyone, that the government of Iran has been one of the leading supporters of world-wide terrorism on the planet.  Given that our own current administration is also a supporter of terrorism given the aid and weapons it has supplied to muslim brotherhood backed regimes, and that our real potus, Valerie Jarrett, is Iranian, I fully expect to hear that John Kerry shakes that hand and offers tons of US tax dollars.

My friends, this is serious!  The combined weakening of our military and defenses, coupled with our own soft stand against world-wide terrorism, and our current status on the world stage is creating a perfect storm for our demise.  This is not the ‘Dove of Peace’ looking to extend an olive branch; this is the first vulture circling over a lost, dying steer in the wilderness waiting to devour the carcass.  We must be wary.

Arutz Sheva:  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that it was possible to turn more than three decades of enmity with the United States into friendship if both sides made an effort, Reuters reports.

The Iranian President made the comments in an interview  with Swiss television after arriving at the World Economic Forum in Davos where he will court the global business community and meet a series of oil company executives.

"No animosity lasts eternally, no friendship either lasts eternally. So we have to transform animosities into friendship," Rouhani told RTS television when asked whether there could one day be an American embassy again in Tehran instead of the Swiss embassy representing U.S. interests in Iran.

In the interview, in which Rouhani spoke in Farsi voiced over into French, he said relations with Washington had been difficult in the past but with hard work and efforts by both sides, problems could be overcome.

"This effort is necessary to create confidence on both sides. Iran is in fact stretching out its hand in peace and friendship to all countries of the world and wants friendly, good relations with all countries in the world," the president said, according to Reuters.
