Cyber Group DIGITA SHADOW/GHOST SECURITY vows to battle ISIS online

Per CNN..
DIGITA SHADOW joins other cyber groups like Anonymous to fight the terrorist cyber war
Made up of ex military, IT Specialists.
Digita Shadow/GHOST SECURITY, says they only hack when lives are at stake.

"Ghost Security differentiates itself from the vast and often disjointed hacktivist collective Anonymous, which has also declared war on ISIS and claims to have taken down pro-ISIS Twitter accounts. A handful of members were previously part of Anonymous, including one of the leaders, who goes by the name "DigitaShadow." He says Ghost Security is small and more focused.

"We have structure and leadership," he told CNNMoney. "We also have a lot of counterterrorism experience. We have translators, linguists, research analysts on hand to analyze all the data that we receive."

Dalai Lama re: Paris. "“We cannot solve this problem only through prayers”

"Speaking to Germany’s state-run media outlet Deutsche Welle yesterday (Nov. 16), the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner said people should not expect God to stem the horror and tragedy of the Paris attacks. He advocated instead for a “systematic approach” to foster harmony and humanistic values.

We cannot solve this problem only through prayers. I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.

We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony. If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments.

His response to the Paris attacks echoes remarks he made in 2003 about the Sept. 11 attacks in New York two years earlier, in which he said the “real antidote” to terrorism is compassion and dialogue—although he suggested then that violent countermeasures might be necessary to fight terrorism."

ISIS, Stormfront..Terrorist Organizations speading like a cancer.

Their mission is no different than the slow rise of the cultish & dangerous movement of Adolph Hitler.
It took a damned World War to finally reign in the Hate Crimes of that terrorist organization too.
One that targeted a specific part of society, by one insane person or small group, and resulted in the most massive slaughter of humanity.

Terrorist groups like ISIS & Stormfront are mirrors to Adolph Hitler.
Now imagine if Adolph Hitler would have had the Internet available as these groups do today.

Oh yes..I recall some history there with Trumbo.

Been a long time. I still have the book packed away, along with my love beads & peace sign jewelry.
I remember equating it with Vietnam but later hearing about the controversy of it.

I was intrigued and impressed the moment he & the nurse communicated.
Appreciate the mental shakeup..long time ago.
