Misdirection Watch - or are folks losing their minds at the same time all over the place ? ( December 21 , 2014 ) --Geopolitical instability abounds , domestic strife brewing , Sony affair - could it lead to further cyber disruptions internationally as well as here in the US ? But the better question - who wants to see the world burn ?

I have been carefully watching this before commenting..... here's what I see. For initial context ,  we are living in dangerous times. US involved in expanding conflicts in Iraq and  Syria . We are going to be in  Afghanistan for a long time and things are quite unsettled there . Libya is a mess . CIA Torture report quite controversial . Yemen is a mess too. Saudis seeing stirrings of terror. Foreign policy disaster Ukraine looks likely to siphon US taxpayers funds . Bond markets ( US / Japan / Germany / UK ) indications reveal " recovering economies "  memo not exactly accurate globally or for above-referenced countries. Russia under attack by various forces and for various motivations. Oil's sudden fall sending global tremors. Greece political drama should be unsettling - there could be a last minute stick-save but it hasn't happened yet. With that back drop , consider recent events....

Who wants to watch the world burn , which men and women ? And where do they find their certifiable  nut jobs  ?

Looming divide and conquer distractions....

First - to the families , friends , colleagues of the murdered police officers , sincere condolences are given. Completely tragic and senseless violence is a crime and society in general and shattering to the loved ones whose lives are cut short. Violence should be condemned swiftly whenever it occurs and the killer is no hero. The same sentiment are also extended to the victims in France today and Australia last week - but notice the pattern of the perps involved . All three are deranged basket cases who somehow decided on a given day to wreck havoc - ever wonder why that is the case or how that happens ?

Is i just a coincidence  , on these sad bit frequently growing occasions , that  have we observed mentally ill individuals go on a rampage ? I know I  wonder how and why this happens  over and over  again ? And maybe  this latest tragedy feeds into a pattern of divide and conquer. Pitting different groups against one another and serving to distract from grave issues of the day. Just something to consider .....

Man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' drives into crowd in France, injuring 11: source

PARIS: A driver shouted "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great") as he ploughed into a crowd in the eastern French city of Dijon on Sunday injuring 11 people, two seriously, a source close to the investigation said.
"The man, born in 1974, is apparently imbalanced and had been in a psychiatric hospital," the source told AFP, adding that "for now his motives are still unclear".
The attack came the day after a French convert to Islam was shot dead after attacking three police officers with a knife while also reportedly crying "Allahu Akbar" in the central town of Joue-les-Tours.


The self-proclaimed Islamic “sheikh” and alleged sexual predator who took more than a dozen people hostage in a café in Sydney early Monday had a history of “mental instability,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said today.

Sony movie situation.....This whole situation seems like a movie made by idiots on acid laced crack - about an absolutely unbelievable horrible premise of a  movie to me ! And just how do we punish North Korea for this ( assuming this is their handiwork ? ) What about talk about hitting China - anyone really think that's a wise move ?

The begs the question: What's our red line for responding to a cyber terrorist attack?
