ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
It’s spread to Yemen:
Looks like Al Jazeera is getting the news through to people.
Yikes. Is this how it starts?
I’m sure this could never happen here.
Now we know how the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act will work if it’s passed.
Does anyone else remember when the authorities in Those Countries tried to control access to fax, moving up from photocopiers, mimeograph, and typewriters? It’s a straight line back to banning teaching reading and writing, or translating the religious material into the vernacular: information is the enemy of the authorities.
Saddly, there are lots of little fires burning/smoldering in the ME, right now. The evil, to include the dictators of those countries, and our lame media are intentionally witholding this information when they can.
They are game planing out a “what if” scenario for the US..
So asking the right questions at the right time seems to be in order. “Why would they think that they would need to game plan out for a similar situation?”.
If they’ve done nothing wrong, or doing nothing wrong, then there would be no reason to run all of their analysts through the “what if” scenarios.
There is currently no issue in the US which would cause the uprising of it’s people. But ask the questions of what would cause people to uprise?
