UK MARITIME THINK TANK IS CONCERNED WITH SUBSEA COMMUNICATIONS CABLES



Image Hibernia Networks (PD) 


 The UK think tank known as the "POLICY EXCHANGE" has published a warning of the dangers of attacks on submarine telecommunications and data cables. ( See: http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/content-tracks/core-edge/uk-think-tank-warns-of-threats-to-submarine-cables/99417.article ) . Nearly 30 submarine cables connect the UK to the US and there is a goodly amount of redundancy, but not enough to withstand a well coordinated attack. Far more of our international data is carried by submarine cable than by satellite. Indeed a military style attack on this cable net work could cripple both the US and UK economies and put military communications at risk.  The REPORT  is titled "UNDERSEA CABLES INDISPENSABLE, INSECURE"  explains in serious detail the different types of threats to submarine cables and notes correctly that such cables carry 95 to 97% of transoceanic data and telecommunications, far more than all satellites combined. Most cable breaks are accidental and some occur every year usually from contact with bottom scouring fishing equipment such a large commercial trawls. But these breaks rarely cause serious communications problems. The typical level of redundancy between most nations is sufficient to reroute these occasional breaks. However any nation that loses three or more cables at once is usually in big trouble. We introduced our readers to the importance of submarine cables to our economy and security in a post dated January 12, 2017 titled Submarine Cables Introduction and Video Histories
we also warned of the potential danger to this cable net work from Russian submarines prior to the first post mentioned above on October 26, 2015 in RUSSIAN SUBMARINES TOO NEAR SUBMERGED DATA AND COMMUNICATIONS CABLES. 

 So if you are of the school that thinks that anything you hear from a bunch of old retired mariners or a giant catfish should be verified before believing, click on the links above and read the certified report from a genuine fee charging think tank occupied by real PH.Ds.complete with a hosanna chorous from the government agents who pay the big bucks for the reports.  But remember the gang and the catfish here at AAB never charge for our advisories and the record shows we're more often than not months ahead of the expensive think tanks, and most always spot on. Policy makers, you avoid the great catfish and the crew of the harbor scow he rides in on at great peril to the tax payers treasury and your own potential for future election.

THE ADVICE OF NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI TO TYRANTS ON GUN CONTROL




Niccolo' di Bernardo dei Machiavelli 1469-1527


 Niccolo Machiavelli , if we were to describe him in completely neutral terms, was an Italian diplomat,  politician, historian, philosopher, humanist, and writer of the Renaissance era. Many folks of less than a neutral viewpoint view him as an advisor to tyrants. Indeed this is so prevalent in the modern era that the term Machiavellianism was coined to characterize unscrupulos politicos of the sort he was thought to advise. In his best known publication THE PRINCE he appears to actually endorse immoral behaviors of a variety of sorts including dishonesty, and klling innocents, as normal and effective in politics. Sound a bit like a matched set of politicos we all know from America whose communial last name starts with a big honking "C"?

 Well, Machiavelli had to deal with the natural tendicies of dictators to want to disarm the populace they control. We'd call it "gun control" today, that favorite cause of Democrats. Yet his advice to the would be gun grabbers of his day who actually had the power and authority to collect all the civilian weapons was not what you'd expect. So for the edification of all those Democrats and their fellow travling globalist, Salifists, Commies, Socialists, and what Gen. Jackson referred to as "hellish banditi" here is Machiavelli's own advice on the confiscation of civilian guns: 

"When you disarm the people you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred. "

 Hoot! there it is lefties! Straight from the Great Machiavelli. If you want to be either a great and successful democratic leader, or a successful tyrant leave the people's damn guns alone. It just looks like gun confiscation is never going to be a good idea.

THE RADICALIZATION PROCESS:

THE GREAT NAMAZU EXPLAINS HOW PEOPLE OF MANY DIFFERENT PERSUASIONS GET RADICALIZED, OFTEN WITHOUT DIRECT CONTACT WITH OTHERS


THE GREAT NAMAZU APPLIES HIS 3,000 YEARS OF HUMAN OBSERVATION TO THE RADICALIZATION PROCESS

GREETINGS BIPEDS! 

 If you've been watching America since the Oklahoma City bombing of the  Alfred P. Murrah  Federal Building  back on April 19, 1995 you noticed that a lot of innocent Americans and others have died in America since then from terrorist attacks. The perpetrators in the Oklahoma City attack Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were clearly of a right wing persuasion. The perpetrators of the airplane attacks on New York City in 2001 were clearly Islamic, while it appears that the attacker of Senator Vitter and his baseball team was a socialists hater of the people Hillary Clinton declared "deplorables".  These shooters of "Deplorables" seem to be proliferating. In the Los Vegas shootings there is some evidence of both anti "Deplorables" and Islamic influences on the shooter. In the recent Church shootings in Texas there is ample evidence of mental illness, un-suppressed hostility, and some serious anti "Deplorables" influences on the shooter. One has to ask; all these people with such disparate beliefs causing all this death; do they have anything in common? Few would argue against the idea that they are all radical believers in whatever they believe in, enough so to dehumanize and murder anyone who doesn't share their beliefs.  This in turn begs the question is there anything in the various paths to radicalization that  all of these perpetrators had or have in common.?  Personally I think so.

 I also believe that persons under going the radicalization process display certain signs of the process along the way, but fortunately for us peaceful folks not every radical is going to become a mass murderer. Unfortunately, under the right circumstances, any of them could turn to mass murder. I believe that one of the first signs of anyone who has been radicalized is the loss of a sense of humor. That doesn't mean the radical is incapable of sarcasm, indeed sarcasm becomes a predominant form of their daily speech. Perhaps the early warning sign of the loss of a sense of humor is loss of any self depreciating sense of humor, the person who can never see the humor in their own actions or pronouncements. Once this failure to see becomes a perception of insult, whenever anyone doesn't accept their ideas, the radical is about to pop out of the once at least civilized on the surface person. This is not to say that the radicalized person can't laugh, but they laugh at inappropriate things, especially sarcasm or any form of pain or insult directed at their "enemy". The radical really can't tell a joke to a general audience. Since the election of Donald Trump most of the net work late night talk show hosts have sunk into lengthy, repetitive sarcastic monologues. This is a major reason for some brighter day time shows like "HARRY" to start being replayed in the late night. The slip into radicalism by late night "pundits" has done wonders for the ratings of Star Trek reruns. 

 However, while this loss of a sense of humor is a mark on the route to radicalization, many people, particularly those with a lot to lose like late night TV hosts, simply turn into boorish, morose, angry people but don't destroy property or physically hurt anyone. They aren't much fun to be around but are not likely to become dangerous. However, a small minority of angry, morose, people who want the world to turn their way eventually show signs of devaluing the human life and private property of whole classes of human beings that don't agree with their world view. Eventually, in the later stages, these humorless, angry people begin to articulate their ideas about violence on those who they disagree with. They dehumanize those they don't agree with. When such people begin to articulate such thoughts they have usually set foot on the second to last step on the slippery slope to violent radicalism. When articulation turns to open advocacy of such violence they have crossed the line and either must be controlled or society and individuals will suffer, some will suffer loss if life. 

 The pragmatist who observes the radicalization process writ large as it is today often will make a call to arms, in terms of societal and personal self defense. Such advocacy of self defense is only reasonable and necessary. However, the true radical will respond to such a call with more invective calling those who advocate self defense "racists", "gun nuts", "Nazis", or Fascists. The pragmatists quietly arms himself and goes about his daily living in the sure and certain knowledge that you can't reason with the radical. Civil war is ignited when the attacks on the pragmatists and other non radicals become so frequent that the number of radicals confronting armed and trained pragmatists reaches critical mass and the majority of the pragmatists arm themselves. The hope of the world is that eventually enough armed pragmatists emerge to actually suppress the radicals. The history of the world is that more often than not the radicals succeed in disarming the pragmatists while the majority of pragmatists are engaged in the "bias towards normalcy", then the radicals start a blood bath. If all of the ranting of the radicals is simply too much for you to follow, don't fail to follow this one thing, radical progress in disarming the rest of us. It has not neared critical mass yet, but if it passes it we will enter a dark age. 

 Keep Calm and Carry. Laugh, including at yourself there Wyatt Earp. Remember the angry crazy people who can't laugh at anything except sarcasm like late night talk show hosts, liberals, socialists, globalists, neo Nazis, Reconquistas, Islamofascists, fire and brimstone preachers, et al suffer ill health effects of stress. In the end we may yet not have to shoot them in the preservation of freedom. Radicals become old fast, we will probably out live them naturally. Radicals are unattractive, may join rape gangs as many of the radical Muslims of Europe have done, but no one is really attracted to them and they aren't much in terms of reproduction. This infestation in societies emerges from time to time and often disappears of its own humourless weight. Hey I'm giant 3,000 year old catfish, if you can't believe me who can you believe?
