I'm willing to bet this wasn't the Syrian Army, but it was carried out by the Syrian rebels to frame the Syrian Army to force the United States to launch airstrikes in Syria.

No, the Syrian government is probably a bunch of arseholes and need to be Seal Teamed, but that doesn't win elections.

Obama: "Um, okay...."

It looks like they didn't actually attack the NY Times - they attacked their DNS provider.

The NYT site is still up - the domain name just points somewhere else - currently a Russian server, but it's changed a few times.  It was pointing to a US-based site earlier.

The Repeated Meme:  Wow, these Syria threads are pretty strange. Maybe it's just me, but I don't get a hard on thinking about how guys who learned their trade killing American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are going to overthrow another secular government.

Remember, every time you cheer for the rebels you piss on another American grave.



Let's put aside that the rebels are really not our friends and don't share our interests.   Sure, Assad's a proven nasty brutal dictator, but if these rebels win they've shown their willingness to make Syria into the middle eastern version of Pol Pot's Cambodian killing fields.

These guys aren't going to institute any national amnesty or reconciliation program... after a brutal war like this? They're probably gonna massacre anyone they think were their enemies during the war and then proceed in plunging the rest of the country into a theocratic shiathole.

We really shouldn't be helping them but here we are...

Right, because now Judith Miller and the New York Times DIDN'T flat out manufacture WMD stories and sell the USA on a war wanted by neo-cons and Israel.

Of course, being the bunch of ignorant Wal-Mart shoppers we are, we'll fall for it again.

Ummm. I have no idea what you're talking about. I was making a Ghostbusters reference.

Specifically this scene:

How can you have peace without war to compare it to?
 
2013-08-27 11:51:45 PM

Muta: Even if it were a real "Syrian Electronic Army", isn't the problem more with poor network administration at NYT and Twitter and not a national issue.


Technically, this is an attack on US soil. Yes, there aren't really any victims, but I feel like we wouldn't be as forgiving had the Syrian IRL Army launched a rocket at US that hit a barren patch of desert.

I'm a pacifist by nature, but I am getting somewhat fed up with allowing what would under any other circumstances be considered a direct act of war just because old people don't get the internets and cool guys think it's still cool to pretend that the internet is a giant joke.

I don't want an invasion, by I'm really not opposed to indiscriminate carpet bombing of any country that either tolerates or sponsors anti-American hacker groups. I mean, duck, this group caused the market to lose hundreds of millions of dollars earlier this year. How long before they kill someone?

Since the subject here is internet information, I thought I'd leave these here.  They are:

1.  The Syrian government's English-language news website

http://sana.sy/index_eng.html

2.  An English-language website maintained by the government's opponents
