Army Threatens Punks

Operation Punk Buster Continues is a post to the America's Army forums (thanks Slashdot) discussing cheating, PunkBuster countermeasures, ending with some threats:

Some of you (and clearly the bad guys are among them) don’t always remember that this game, and all accounts and derivative products, are the property of the United States Army. When you tamper with the game, not only are you breaking the EULA you’re misusing Army property – and, worse, you’re misusing US Army computer programs and equipment.

Tampering with software and servers owned or used by the Army is cyber crime.

In the early 1940’s, Japan learned an important lesson – “let the sleeping giant lie.” We may not react swiftly, but when we do it’s with unstoppable force. The Army has partners that deal with cyber crime as a matter of course. These include not just various Army IT departments, but also the Department of Justice, the Secret Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

It’s going to get uncomfortable for some of the bad guys, but you know what? They brought it on themselves. Knowing this anyone who continues to be bad is just plain foolish. Keep trying, though. Sooner or later the bad guy will realize we’ve known about him for a while… and by then it’s too late.

Allow me to speak directly to the bad guys for a moment: When you get banned, know that we know and have records showing you were doing something that’s a violation of terms of service, breaks your EULA, and also happens to be against the law. We know who you are, and can track down where you play from. We have incontrovertible proof you did something illegal. The Army is angry, and we’re coming for you.

"If you think that these people DYING all over the globe aren't dying for you, you're stupid"

Really? I don't work for or represent arms manufacturers oil companies, nor "service" companies like Haliburton, so, those people ain't dying for me. Unless you are gaining financially from the war in Iraq, those kids ain't dying for you either.

"They're fighting for others to have the chance to live a life without wholesale slaughter"

Which others? Israelis? From here, Israel looks like the only people whose safety was enhanced by the removal of Hussein, and even that is a stretch of the imagination when you look at the pitiful defence of Iraq put up by Hussein's own army. "Life without wholesale slaughter" is exactly what Iraqis had before USA rolled in this time - show me any evidence of "wholesale slaughter" caused by anything but USA or UK bombs in the time the USA officially didn't support Hussein (91-2003) and I'll eat crow. My diet will remain crow-free, because the only "wholesale slaughter" inflicted upon the Iraqi people was done with tacit USA backing and support, even through the times of his worst crimes against humanity - which were severe (gassing of Kurds, murder of 30,000 shiites with US supplied helicopters etc). What "wholesale slaughter" the Iraqis saw under the "rule of Saddam" was all backed by the US, so claims that the USA is now the Iraqi people's benefactor are completely ridiculous.

"I seriously doubt any US administration would be as horrific in a ruling power as the Hussein family"

By supporting Hussein through all his worst atocities and by being the hand up the puppets back as he commited the atrocities, Husseins regime was truly a "US administration," and was horrific. Domestically, you have GW and Co. who have caused at least 100,000 deaths in excess of normal death rates in Iraq since outset of this new war in Iraq - Hussein's total body count (against his own people) was far less than the total murder-count the USA is building up every day in Iraq - right now we have an example of one domestic "US administration" just as "horrific" at the very least as Saddam in his most cruel years, and if we want to bring to light a historical example of "US administration" as "horrific" as Saddam, or worse, we need look no further than JFK - whose murderous adventure in Vietnam alone cost 3 million Vietnamese civilian lives, and that is without counting Laos or Cambodia. Sure, domestically they (Saddam) were killing thousands, but the murder of millions of innocent people in other countries is surely a far graver, and more "horrific" crime than the US backed atrocities of Saddam at his worst.

"If you want to insult me for what I say, then you are immature..."

Lets review the first sentence you wrote in this post, or just the last two words, ok? Here they are: "You're stupid." If I want to insult you for what you say, I'm immature, but if you want to insult me for what I say, while giving no critical analysis of what I said beyond repeating what murderous serial liars and their spoon-fed press say, you're being a "free" American, patriotic to the end, unreproachable in your democracy loving ways, free to "express your views without worrying about someone coming to your house and kicking in your door and killing your entire family." Right. The only thing that makes me "not worthy" of reading your post is I am too god damn smart to re-read what I can get from your "free" Mass Media, your governments flip flopping press-releases, or hear from countless moronic radio-voices.

Get a clue zen you fucking american.
