As I watched, the conspiracies mounted – one of my favorites is that Smedley is in fact me and I am cashing out or something, so I decided to up the ante. I (probably stupidly in hindsight) unpublished my blog posts and deactivated my twitter to lend credibility to Smedley's claims...

Let’s not replicate the sins of our Governments. Let’s not aggravate the problems Governments face. I don't disregard the threats radicalization online brings. I'm suggesting Cyber Vigilantism is not a movement we want to support by throwing our Western weight behind it...

This does not look like a US military action against China, that is certain. Whoever put the message together seems to be dumbing it down to aid in translation. It’s as if it’s intended for an American audience, but nobody in their right mind would or should do that...
