North Korea Threatens U.S. Military Bases in the Pacific

“Such fears increased on Wednesday, when a hacking attack originating from an Internet address in China caused a widespread shutdown, paralyzing about 32,000 computers at South Korea’s two largest public broadcasters, an all-news cable channel and three banks.”
This is the kind of tactics that shows the apparent trait of ‘PASSIVE AGGRESSIVENESS’. What bothers me is that the Chinese and North Korea never takes a stance on conflicts and issues that not only affects regional security and safety of civilians, but also on issues that affects the entire planet Earth, such as carbon monoxide and dioxide emissions. While playing indifferent and asking all other nations to be calm and solve issues through peaceful talks – these nations exercise their continuous ‘passive aggressive’ tactics to threat over neighboring nations; such as listing South China Sea on the newest versions of travel documents to pre-emtive nuclear attack threats.
Maybe it’s time for a ‘extra-strengh’ FIREWALL for our nation along with allies to monitor hackers attacking at every possible source from classified documents, private sector business strategies, to bombarding e-mail servers with spam. What’s next…? I believe that a government issued contract to build both software and hardware to secure communications for our nation.
Being a true ‘statesman’ and a ‘leader’ is a person and/or nation that has dignity and integrity; plus the heart of caring and loving humankind and our planet Earth. Draw your own conclusions over the depicted photo above…
