US Move To Make Internet “Weapon Of War” Sparks Global Fears

Sorcha Faal / What Does It All Mean?
The International Code of Conduct for Information Security sets basic principles for maintaining information and network security which cover the political, military, economic, social, cultural, and technical aspects. The consensus of a gathering of global internet professionals attending the Russian held in Moscow on 14 May is that not only will the US not agree to sign the ICCIS, but these experts fear that the US is, instead, planning to use the internet as a “weapon of war”.
(June 1, 2012) -- A chilling Federal Security Service (FSB) report on the recently completed gathering of global internet professionals attending the Russian Internet Governance Forum (RIGF) held in Moscow on 14 May states that the consensus of these world experts is that not only will the United States not agree to sign the International Code of Conduct for Information Security, but fears have increased that the Americans are, instead, planning to use the internet as a “weapon of war”.
The International Code of Conduct for Information Security raises a series of basic principles of maintaining information and network security which cover the political, military, economic, social, cultural, technical and other aspects.
The principles stipulate that countries shall not use such information and telecom technologies as the network to conduct hostile behaviors and acts of aggression or to threaten international peace and security and stress that countries have the rights and obligations to protect their information and cyberspace as well as key information and network infrastructure from threats, interference and sabotage attacks.
They advocate establishing a multilateral, transparent and democratic international Internet governance mechanism, fully respecting the rights and freedom of information and cyberspace with the premise of observing laws, helping developing countries develop the information and network technologies and cooperating on fighting cyber crimes.
In preparing the American people for their governments refusal to sign an international agreement stating that the internet should not be used as a weapon of war, this report says, the Obama regime has launched an all-out propaganda assault telling their people falsely that the International Code of Conduct for Information Security would lead to the United Nations control of the internet.
In fact, the US State Department’s top official for information policy warned lawmakers yesterday that proposals to give the United Nations more control over the Internet could lead to international censorship. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philip Verveer testified that the measures would “slow the pace of innovation, hamper global economic development and potentially lead to an era of unprecedented control over what people can say and do online.”
US tech leaders, likewise, joined the Obama regime in attacking The International Code of Conduct for Information Security by falsely claiming it “could lead to broad new regulations of the Internet, including per-click taxes.”
Unbeknownst to most people, this report continues, was that one of Obama’s first acts as President was to declare that the internet was a “strategic national asset” whose control he then gave over to the National Security Agency (NSA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the US Department of Defense (DoD) thus creating what has been called one of the most frightening, and all encompassing, surveillance regimes in history.
Even more frightening about the US, the FSB says, is that the Americans are “most likely” behind what is being called the most dangerous, and potentially catastrophic computer virus ever made that has the power to destroy whole nations and caused the United Nations yesterday to issue its most serious warning ever about what is called the Flame Computer Virus.
Roel Schulenburg, a senior security researcher with Kaspersky Labs, told Fox News that Flame is twenty times larger than previous cyberbombs, and immensely more powerful. So large, in fact, that it contains 250,000 lines of code and is like having a virtual army at your disposal.
To who built the Flame Computer Virus it is not known, but US computer security experts told NBC News yesterday that the virus bears the hallmarks of a US cyber espionage operation, specifically that of the super-secret National Security Agency.
Under the terms of The International Code of Conduct for Information Security, this report continues, the actions of any nation creating such a dangerous virus would be prohibited and shows why the Obama regime is so contemptuous of any international law or agreement that would keep it from using the internet as a weapon of war.
Likewise, the FSB reports, under The International Code of Conduct for Information Security the US would no longer be able to spy on its own citizens like it is currently doing with the FBI and NSA.
So pervasive has spying upon the American people by their government become that the US tech blog Network World reported this past week that “the FBI is plowing ahead with plans to wiretap the web and requiring backdoors for eavesdropping on electronic communications. In fact, the FBI has a new web surveillance unit to help create the backdoor technology.”
Even worse for the American people living under the Obama regime, and as reported by the Wired News Service:
“Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks.
The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails -- parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.” It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration.”
To what words being used by the American people over the internet that could potentially mark them as terrorists were recently learned when the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was forced to release a list of these “dangerous” words following a freedom of information request and include such words as: pork, sick, cloud, bridge, aid, flood…and so many other such common words as to mark all of these people as enemies of the state.
And in a case of the plight of these Americans going from bad to worst, last week an amendment was approved to the Defense Authorization Act and passed out of the US House of Representatives on Friday, 18 May that amends two existing acts: the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act (1987) that makes it legal for the Obama regime to target propaganda and “psychological operations” directly at US citizens for the first time in their history.
To the American people themselves living under what can only be described as one of the most brutal and totalitarian regimes of the 21st Century, there appears to be nothing that will awaken them from their long slumber before all is lost and they become the debt slaves their elite masters have always envisioned them to be.
