Today, 15 April, 2010, President Obama appoints Keith Alexander, the director of the NSA, to officially run a newly created branch of the US military forces: "Cyber Command".
Their mission, while not fully clear, is to help assist the already-established internet warfare divisions of agencies such as the NSA. Up to now, this branch has not been brought into full operation as congress/the people have been worried over the potential power that "Cyber Command" may give the NSA. We can see for ourselves in the following congressional meeting video, how the newly appointed cyber commander explains a need for severe overlap of current NSA operations with "Cyber Command" command.
Government actually refers to "mind control", stemming from the word roots
- Govern meaning control
- Mente meaning mind
Of-course, none of this has been formed without orders from the very top - Obama. Some call him the first "Techy President" - and he has been coordinating the most comprehensive military occupation of the Internet ever openly discussed by any US president.
In the time since that announcement, news media has started feeding us with propaganda eluding to an invisible "Cyber War" that is coming - a war that the United States of America is far from ready to wage... or so they say.
Once again, in the name of protecting Americans senator Jay Rockefeller introduced the cyber security act of 2009, a tricky piece of legislation designed to give the president the ability to shut down the internet in the case of a national cyber emergency.
So what does all of this mean? Well when you combine all of these elements, the soldiers on social networks, the NSA Google connection, the creation of Cyber Command justified by the soon to be passed cyber security act of 2010, you are left with the creation of the most comprehensive cyber
Now if you have reached this point there is only one question left to ask, Why? What is the government afraid of, why do we need all these internet monitoring agencies? Well, as president Obama stated in his press release we live in an ever increasingly connected world, where weapons of mass disruption can be as damaging to the infrastructure of this country as the deployment of a nuclear weapon.
