Re: And it's all based on ALLEGATIONS!
Nope, the evidence is the OPCW fabricated a report that the US asked for ot say what the US wanted and not what really happened.
Do keep up.

Not nearly as much of that as there is international election manipulation, illegal warfare, banned weapons use, the several million dead from both of those as well as the velvet glove style Police State that is the US these days.
Not to mentio that the US has installed and/or directly supports 73% of the worlds dictatorships.
No one in the US has any standing to point at ANY other nation at this point about pretty much anything.
Most at the Director level that I have worked with (all very very large companies) were of two types:
The clueless self promoter with side deals and things that look like CoI's but are just shy of being legally so
And the abusive stress ball that also displays less competence than the title would suggest.
To have a guy like this one at that level would be a major change for the better at most companies.
Doubt it will have any effect at all on nocturnal wildlife and it certainly will NOT interfere with NEO searches, these are moving objects that have known trajectories that can be removed from the sample data easily and quickly without a ton of extra programming required.
Yes they will upset visual observers with their transits but so do all the others as well, usually I just try to track and resolve them anyway as an amateur.
The real problem here is the orbital congestion creating a bubble around the planet that is very difficult to launch through safely.
8 character passwords are no longer recommended and have not been for a couple years now because of the ease with which they are compromised as the latest demonstraton shows.
Content does not matter, even special characters have negligible benefits in a hash this short these days.
Use pass phrases where your admins allow.
Pass phrases are snippets of something that you can remember that make a sentence or nearly a sentence.
A good one had I not just used it on a public forum would be something like:
Don't panic and remember to bring your towel.
That is 42 characters long and won't be crackable until quantum computers are available over the next decade or so.
It is also very easy to remember and not really all that slow to type.
And it is secure, for now.
Pass phrases people: use them, love them, be secure.
Notice that the exploit is a hijacked HYPERVISOR, that's really not an issue.
Anyone can own a machine once they own the root or underlying architecture, having physical access is a ticket to pretty much anything given enough time.
What it doesn't allow is one pwned guest to hijack another, and THAT is the line of security that matters.
That the AMD chip makes it HARDER for BOFH to mess with your stuff is a bonus, the BOFH was never ever actually locked out as he/she has control at the root level and given enough time and skill would pwn it all anyway if they were to be bothered, which most of us really aren't.
So this is another nothing burger, although knowing for sure means I can harden my hypervisor's system down a little harder to make pwning it that much more difficult to the outsider.
No, it couldn't.
That isn't how the Internet works.
The Internet was designed to have MULTIPLE hubs destroyed before there is a loss of services. It was designed to survive a nuclear war. Just cutting the trans Atlantic cables would do nothing to our access or communications. Nothing.
This either shows how incredibly ignorant our leadership is or demonstrates how much they are willing to lie in order to demonize Russia.
