US lacks people, authorities to face cyber attack
The Associated Press WASHINGTON --
The U.S. military does not have the trained personnel or the legal authorities it needs to respond to a computer-based attack on America or its allies, and a crisis would quickly strain the force, the Pentagon's cyber commander said Wednesday.
Toe Israel laasjaar die Flotila aangeval het.....nee......hulle self verdedig het, toe is die HELE wereld in oproer. Insluitend Suid Afrika wat 'n groot bohaai gemaak het. Selfs gaan betoog het by die South African Zionest Federation in JHB. Gadafhi moor 100de ongewapende mense uit.....en omtrent niemand se iets nie, wel beslis nie Suid Afrika nie. Is dit omdat Gadafhi en Zuma dalk saam braai?
'n Joodse gesin word uitgemoor.....en niemand se 'n woord nie, insluitend Suid Afrika. Hoekom........want daar is 'n Jode haat wat in die weerld heers!

Related Story: Rudd prays no-fly zone comes in time Related Story: UN clears way for Libya no-fly zone The Agence France Presse news agency is reporting that the French government has said military action against Libya will come within "hours".
The strikes will come "rapidly... within a few hours," government spokesman Francois Baroin reportedly told RTL radio after the UN Security Council cleared the way for air strikes by approving "all necessary measures" to impose a no-fly zone on Libya.
Lyk my ou groot mond Gaddafi raak bang.
Libya Shuts Air Space Ahead Of No-Fly Action
Libya has closed its air space to all traffic in a move seen to thwart the United Nation's imposition of a no-fly zone over the country.
The closure of Libyan air space was announced by Europe's air navigation organisation, Eurocontrol.
The news comes amid reports of Libyan forces bombing the western town of Misratah.
Saif Gaddafi, the son of dictator Muammar Gaddafi, also said "anti-terror" forces will be sent into Benghazi to disarm rebel forces in the eastern Libyan city.
Meanwhile military action to implement the no-fly zone will commence within "hours" according to French government spokesman Francois Baroin.
Baroin said the goal of the military action would be to "protect the Libyan people and to allow them to go all the way in their drive for freedom, which means bringing down the Gaddafi regime."
Jy moet egter in gedagte hou dat dieselfde regering wat niks sê oor die uitwissing van 'n Israelie-gesin ook niks te sê het oor sy eie mense wat in hope vermoor word nie. 3000+ boere en die syfer klim daagliks. Hoekom sal hulle nou hulle monde oopmaak oor 'n "ou gesinetjie" in 'n land wat hulle nie eers op 'n kaart sal kan kry nie...........
EDIT : Ek het die video gaan kyk op die skakel, dit is goed dat hulle die misdaadtonele vir hulle mense beskikbaar stel.... nie nog 'n gesiglose koue moordstatistiek nie... maar die harde werklikheid.

Talk-show host Oprah Winfrey today celebrated the opening of her first church and the founding of her new religion, titled O, The Oprah Religion. The multi-tasking Oprah will serve as pontiff and deity for both.
“Expanding on Her enormously successful enterprises in television, film, the web, and Her magazine, Oprah Winfrey brings Her positive, motivational spirit to one of the most highly anticipated new religions since Scientology,” explained spokesperson and new Archbishop for the church, Gayle King, in a press conference in Chicago today.
“O, The Oprah Religion gives confident, smart women the tools they need to explore and reach for their dreams, to express their individual style, and to make choices that will lead to a happier and more fulfilling afterlife.”
“In addition, we’ve eliminated the regressive prohibitions – such as those against shrimp, clothing made of mixed fibers, and premarital sex – that older, outmoded religions still cling to, but which no longer fit in with the lifestyles of their congregations. In fact, Oprah loves to share a shrimp cocktail with her live-in life partner while wearing stretch-wool slacks! Now, with O, The Oprah Religion, you can do the same, and without the threat of everlasting damnation!”
King went on, “O, The Oprah Religion, has all the comforts of a traditional belief system, but combined with the uplifting spirit of Oprah, so that anyone from a religious background will still feel at home when they convert the new traditions of O, The Oprah Religion.”
“For example, instead of a spring fertility festival like Easter or Passover, with O, The Oprah Religion, you’ll celebrate the abundance of Oprah with Her spring holiday Oprah’s Favorite Things, which is observed during the second week of spring sweeps. During this holiday, believers smear the blood of a freshly slaughtered lamb on their television, and in the middle of the day the Holy Spirit of Oprah visits all supplicants and showers them with cashmere pajamas, gourmet chocolates, and Gladware”
“It doesn’t stop there!” added Archbishop King. “The Catholic tradition of confession has been incorporated into O, The Oprah Religion, but with a twist: confession occurs just once per lifetime, is syndicated nationally, and is officiated over by Oprah herself. Since Oprah serves as both pontiff and God in human form, penance is unnecessary, forgiveness is guaranteed, and it’s all done without the use of an intercessor! Verily I say unto thee: O, The Oprah Religion empowers all women with the tools for their own salvation! Praise be!”
Though Winfrey herself officiated over the opening ceremonies for the First Church Of Oprah, Savior, located on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, O, The Oprah Religion does not require or even encourage Church attendance. Instead, believers are urged to stay home and watch services on their televisions. Regular broadcasts will be held every weekday at 11am. An additional service is planned for the most devout, to be called Oprah, After The Service.
Following her introductory remarks, Archbishop King spread her hands to the heavens, and Oprah herself appeared in the sky overhead, swathed in blindingly white robes and a pair of black leather knee-high boots with stiletto heels. Before Her, a mixed crowd of pre- and post-menopausal women shrieked in excitement, weeping openly at the heavenly vision. Several attendees were so overcome that they collapsed in pools of their own urine.
“Blessed are all who come before Me,” intoned Oprah after floating down to the podium, “and Blessed are all women who come to terms with things! Blessed also is this interesting hand-carved pepper mill; it is one of My Favorite Things! There’s one in each of your gift bags!”
With a flourish of trumpets from an unseen orchestra, production assistants scurried through the crowd, handing out gift bags to all and dispensing Egyptian cotton towels to the women who had wet themselves.
“Blessed is My church, enter ye now and view My services on the giant screen flat-panel Sony television within!” Continued Oprah, “Look within yourself, for you can overcome all obstacles when you believeth in yourself! Look also within your gift bag, as you all get a certificate for a free flat-panel Sony television of thine own!”
With a gesture from Her hands, the doors to the church swept open, and the crowds rushed forth to enter the church as an ivory chariot descended from the sky, whisking Oprah away to her apartment.
“Peace be with you! Praise be to Me!” she yelled as she drove out of sight.
In addition to Oprah’s Favorite Things, other holidays planned for the religion include The Feast Of The Assumption Of Maya Angelou, celebrated each summer with a poetry reading and live bird release, and the month-long Stedmanadon in the fall. Following similar marketing plans by the Kabbalah Center, a line of scented candles in the works, tentatively titled O, The Oprah-scented Candle, though plans for bottled water have been cancelled due to legal problems with Cirque Du Soleil.
