Pearl Harbour cyber attack imminent

Hi Tap,    
I saw this on CBS news last night (via Skynews) and thought it sounded as if the US is being prepared for a possible (false flag) cyber attack.  
US Defence Secretary  Leon Panetta is warning the American people to get ready for a ‘Pearl Harbour cyber attack’ and for a US retaliation!   
There are a couple of other links on Google as well, to the same story.  
The evil bastards are determined to wage war on Iran, one way or another.

Leon Panetta vows retaliation for cyberattack

WASHINGTON — A pointed warning from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that the U.S. military will strike back against a cyberattack underscores the Obama administration’s growing concern thatIran could be the first country to unleash cyberterrorism on America.
Panetta’s unusually strong comments Thursday came as former U.S. government officials and cybersecurity experts said the United States believes Iran-based hackers were to blame for cyberattacks over the summer that devastated computer systems of Persian Gulf oil and gas companies.
Unencumbered by diplomatic or economic ties that restrain other nations from direct conflict with the United States, Iran is an unpredictable foe that national security experts contend is not only capable but willing to use a sophisticated computer-based attack.
Panetta made it clear that the military is ready to retaliate — though he didn’t say how — if it believes the nation is threatened by a cyberattack, and he made it evident that the United States would consider a pre-emptive strike.
“Iran is a country for whom terror has simply been another tool in their foreign policy toolbox, and they are a country that feels it has less and less to lose by breaking the norms of the rest of the world,” said Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security.

  1. The greatest terror cell is Washington DC. The body count for post war murder is 6 million around the world and that’s from their former head of CIA in Angola.

  2. Toad Hall says:

    Since World War II, the United States has messed around, in ways big and small, in Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Lebanon, Grenada, Iraq, Panama, Colombia, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Haiti, Afghanistan again, and Iraq again. No country in the world can begin to match this record in the last half-century. And I’m not even listing here the covert operations (almost everywhere), including the ones that toppled democratically elected governments (Iran, Guatemala, Chile, etc.), the long-term occupations of Latin American countries by the U.S. military, the gunboat diplomacy of the American Navy around the world, the aiding and abetting of other killers (Saddam invading Iran, for example, apartheid South Africa or the Israeli occupation of Palestine), the militarization of the oceans and of space, or the myriad other ways in which the United States leads the planet in aggressive tendencies. (For a whole century’s worth of overseas fun — not even counting the big stuff — Stephen Kinzer’s Overthrow is highly recommended reading.)

  3. A cyber attack can indeed lead to massive loss of lives, if it targets critical infrastructure. A good example in the recent news is the stuxnet virus. This cyber-virus was created to destroy nuclear power stations. The recent events in japan illustrate the serious consequences of such an attack.
