Used to be that the president wasn't able to declare war without congress. Bush secretly authorized a war against Iran that Obama continued. Only in the past few days have Wikileaks, Anonymous, and other world wide security expects linked the Stuxnet virus to the US and Israeli militaries. Because there are no bombs or guns, the president thinks the massive attack isn't an act of war. For those of you who haven't followed it, Stuxnet is a devastating virus that has been crippling systems all over the world recently. After security experts from various governments and organizations analyzed it, it was found that it was created the US and Israeli military under orders of Bush (found thanks to Wikileaks) and accelerated by Obama to destroy the nuclear power plants of Iran. Not only is attacking a foreign country's power grid an act of war, it also managed to escape the confines of the power plant and is now destroying government and civilian computers all over the world. It makes me sad to know that the "shoot first ask questions later" policy of Vietnam is still being used today Thankfully the hacker ("terrorist") group Anonymous has released its own virus designed to search and destroy the Stuxnet worm. /endrant For those of you who aren't techies like me, don't worry, your computer is safe, while it can be carried on personal computers, it won't attack them. It only attacks industrial equipment, mostly aimed at equipment made by Siemens. I wouldn't advise flying in the near future though, as Siemens systems control many air traffic controllers.
