Very nice they have no right to say where are money goes. Secrets a bound to become public knowledge someday. Why fuss about our inability to keep secrets?

so if this is a cyberwar, what our weapon if we want to fight the DDOSers?
on an unrelated, but kinda related note: whenever humans reach a new frontier, ground, ocean, air and now internet, we find a way to fight in it. how long before we start arming the space shuttle?

We've been developing and using weapons against space-based targets since at least 1985 - malfunctioning satellites are destroyed with anti-satellite missiles of multiple varieties with relative frequency.

Most of the other payment companies out there are saying They bowed to pressure from the US state department. You would think companies would have some scruples to stand up to bullying or people to actually go after the people orchestrating this.

As it stands, it tarnishes supporters of Wikileaks, but hopefully some good will come of this.
