Hi there
I think someone will be looking for the su command and trying to find who has root password while the incoming missiles are approaching !!! -- or they will have updated the wrong distro.

Actually Military systems and procurements are still based on 19th and 20th cent warfare -- you don't need massive ships / loads of aircraft or even huge numbers of "Boots on the Ground" for 21st century type conflicts -- remember one solitary individual with a tiny deadly nano microphage could probably devastate half of the United States (and the rest of the world too).

Artificial Viruses / nano technology probably represent (or could) represent far more danger to the planet than even the most hostile Chinese / Russian regime -- and is the USA going to invade them -- no way --in fact even small countries like Syria and Iran won't be swamped by "Boots on the Ground" so what on earth does the US DO with that size military in the 21st century -- much better to spend the money on say establishing Human colonies on Mars / Moon etc.

Cheers

You got to do something with all those tax dollars. People on Mars probably wouldn't pay taxes so that boat don't float.

Through the short life of the U.S.A we have been told by some countries we don't need all that military until one of those countries needs help. Then we have just enough or not enough military.

Me being a veteran who has spent time in a war I must say sometimes I do wonder why and where we use our military.

Here is a war that the U.S.A was a the major player to save the murder and rape of millions of people. I don't remember any body saying thank you.For all those countries that helped I say thank you. For those counties that didn't help; Why not.
*************
Bosniak war.[13] The war was characterized by bitter fighting, indiscriminate shelling of cities and towns, ethnic cleansing and systematic mass rape, mostly led by Serb and, to a lesser extent, Croat[14] forces. Events such as the Siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica massacre would become iconic of the conflict.

Hi there

What about the poor old Brits too -- at one time they had most of the planet under its control - on the whole the legacy left wasn't all total disaster -- established a reasonable system of administration and probably a fairer system of justice than anything else would have delivered at the time -- seems apart from Singapore and "The old Commonwealth" a lot of other countries have actually gone BACKWARDS since independence too - notably hideous corrupt regimes in Africa etc.

However one has to argue that in a lot of cases did military intervention ever seriously work -- sometimes the end result is far worse than what you were trying to achieve in the first place - namely IRAQ as a starter which should be a salutary reminder that you can't solve everything by sheer military might.

Actually if Planet Earth were ever to be invaded by Extra Terrestials our salvation would probably arise in using incredibly LOW tech weaponary and small bands of guerrilla fighters - a high tech massive military would probably be overcome by the extra terrestials in about 10 mins flat.

The whole Military option needs to be re-thought out for TODAY's environment - not deployment of forces for LAST CENTURY's battles.

Drugs, Extreme religious intolerance, some severe overpopulation, equitable division of scarce resources and bad management of environmental resources are what should be occupying the minds of the current generation of politicians.

I wonder if this will urge hackers to develop more malware for Linux.

Probably. Apple OSes were pretty much malware free until their market share started increasing.
