So I'm with you on that. But also consider that _all_ governments are mafias. But not entirely unified. There are families, allegiances, conflicts, etc. etc. And that includes China and Russia. For them all, ideology is just bullshit for the lower levels, and for the masses. And further, maybe some of those mafias have families and allegiances that span multiple countries. Some perhaps run corporations for cover. By default, I assume that everything we get from public sources is bullshit and propaganda. Maybe some of the leaks are real, but even that's hard to know. > That's my flier, and I'm sticking to it. :> > > Rr > >> On Fri, Sep 16, 2016 at 5:55 AM, Ben Tasker <b...@bentasker.co.uk> wrote: >>> I've seen more boxes in China that were very poorly secured than not >>> >>> China's >>> a good place to originate from if your aim is to make it difficult for >>> anyone in the Western World to trace a connection back to your real location >>> - at least by legal methods. >> >> The NSA GPA likes to think it's operating legally, and due to secrecy and >> secret >> orders and cover and spin and expendables, powers don't give a fuck if it's >> not. >> If whitehat CERT like teams can track stuff on the surface, you can bet govt >> can do it in the deep. >> >> For all we know, all these China / Russia attacks are the NSA / CIA or simply >> US political parties and corporates cracking these boxes through nine proxies >> and taking a whack back at their opponents in the US. >> >> It's all a game, play on. >> >
