Ah you prove what you are. I guess the lowering of important people gives you a sense of personal power, so I hope that is pleasurable.
sorry, who are the important people we're talking about? i was talking about David Cameron (or perhaps Devoid Cameron, since that sums up his policies).
And surely nobody in the world, even (if he was honest) gordon brown, would deny that Tony Blair was utterly deranged.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

The DEFCON Warning System is confused by some to represent the DEFCON Status of the United States. This is untrue. There is no single DEFCON status for the country, and in fact different branches of the military can be at different levels of DEFCON at the same time.
The DEFCON Warning System is a privately-run website/blog and does not represent the U.S. military. Quoting from their own website:


The DEFCON Warning System is a private enterprise which monitors world events and assesses nuclear threats against the United States by national entities. It is not affiliated with any government agency and does not represent the alert status of any military branch (emphasis added). The public should make their own evaluations and not rely on the DEFCON Warning System for any strategic planning. At all times, citizens are urged to learn what steps to take in the event of a nuclear attack.

Sounds like a FEMA quote all kidding aside.

Yeah unless there's an official annoucement any DEFCON ratings you see are going to be nothing but guess work.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
