No let up in vocal skirmishes as summary document leaks
ITR discussions begin to resemble Monty Python's argument sketch
It is an unsettling truth that if you are being physically attacked, experts recommend you should shout the word "fire" rather than "help".
Why? Because if people hear the word "fire" they immediate think it could affect them too, so you get their attention. Once you have it, people find it much harder not to rush to your aid.
It is difficult to picture the United States government in the role of victim, but even so it has been on a concerted and organized campaign to shout the word "fire" as frequently and loudly as possible in recent months over an upcoming conference in Dubai in December. The Internet is being attacked by the United Nations, come the cries, and if you don't help, you can kiss goodbye to the network you know and love.
