I don’t see that a cyber attack like this conveys the meaning that this Administration, is tough on Defense. To me it says we tried to spy on another nation using methoids that we describe as computer crime, but we botched it, and we can’t protect our secrets. Nothing but shame there for the White House.
I think we do need to know when the Administration is making war on another country. That is pretty fundamental, constitutional, and obvious isn’t it?
The bravery in exposing it is that extremists like you will want to kill him: not to mention the US government and all its agencies.
I think Iran wants nuclear weapons for precisely the same reasons that the USA wants them. Iranians do not see us as a benign trustworthy power interested in promoting world peace, but as a heavily armed and aggressive heathen nation that hates them and their most sacred religion. In their mind the USA is the last country that should be trusted with nuclear weapons, so a deterrent is essential. THere is evidence for that because the USA has used nukes late in a war when it was no longer directly threatened.
We know now that the nuking of Japan was necessary only to keep out the Russians, who would very soon have occupied Japan without any help from the USA. The bombing was done in anti communist panic, and not to reduce casulties in an imminent US invasion. Seventy divisions of battle hardened red troops were on the western frontier of Japan. Stalin had expressed an intention to invade. That story about saving American lives was propaganda: so good for our conscience that most of us still want to believe it.
UAV strikes are certainly not a military weapon [was] used to deny the enemy a capability with absolutely ZERO bloodshed and ZERO injury. They do prevent American deaths and they are probably more cost efective than alternative means. But, their use is the essence of cowardly super power conduct in war and there is no way of hiding that fact from the enemy or the world. American pride is not important: the charge really matters because it helps them in recruiting insurgents and martyrs.
If the cyber attack had been really effective we would have heard about it as boasting of a victory. But it did not come out like that, so it was probably ineffective.
