Technological Warfare - Spam

2003-01-14 12:41:16+00 by meuon 5 comments


Baghdad -- Apparently in response to a blanket e-mail campaign by the U.S. military urging dissent and defections, the Iraqi government shut down -- at least temporarily -- all Internet access and the country's two e-mail servers.

Although no official explanation was given, e-mail service stopped midafternoon on Friday. Some service was resumed Saturday morning.

LOL!! We SPAMMED the Iraqi's. LOL!!! Warfare takes on a new low.

It's not Unsolicited Commercial Email.

Spam the other pink meat. Idunno it might be cheaper than deploying in the area but that bridge has already been crossed.
